Ezip Electric Bikes
Ezip electric bikes are quite normal in most ways, except
that they have a power system run by electricity. The additional
parts of these bikes include the power pack, and the tabs
that help hold the power source in place. The bike itself
is heavy, and sturdily made.
Ezip bikes use a motor that is mounted on the bike. This
motor powers the rear wheels, and it does not drag on the
forward motion when you ride the bike without the power assist.
You can ride at about 15 miles per hour while you're on level
ground, with the electric motor. The motor can be heard, although
it's not terribly loud.
The electric power system on Ezip bikes is cleverly made
and efficient. The battery is easy to slide in and lock on
a rear rack of the bike. When you slide the battery into place,
it makes the connections itself. The bikes are usually sold
with one battery, and you have the option to add an extra
battery that will give you longer rides without recharging.
The ride time you get depends on how much you are pedaling,
or whether you are pedaling at all. The bike weighs just under
60 pounds, plus batteries, so that's a fairly large weight
to deal with, if you are pedaling. Most avid bikers use two
batteries on the bike, to ensure that their bike will get
where they are going, even if hills and wind drag use up part
of the power.
Ezip bikes have a New Life battery system too, which uses
lithium batteries. These batteries charge faster and they
are lighter in weight, as compared to the older sealed acid
batteries. They are 24 volt batteries, meaning that you don't
need to modify the rest of the electrical system on the bike
to adapt to the more commonly used 36-volt system. The existing
rack on older bikes will still allow the newly designed batteries
to slide right in.
Smart, Very Smart ...
Ezip electric bikes have a smart charger, with indicator
lights that will tell you when the batteries are fully charged.
The PAS/TAG system and controller that powers Ezip bikes complete
the electrical parts of the bike, along with the power switch,
throttle and safety brake switch. The controller will give
your motor the proper power amount when you ask for it with
the throttle, which is styled like a motorcycle hand-grip,
with a twist grip. When you apply the brakes, the motor discontinues
pushing the bike forward.
The PAS mode stands for Pedal Activated System, and this
gives you motor power when you pedal. The TAG mode is the
Twist And Go option, which lets your motor run when you're
not pedaling. The bikes themselves come with effective brakes,
mountain bike tires and a suspension fork. There are different
models that you can buy, so you should be able to find one
that will fit your purpose well.
