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 eBike

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.
