How Far Can You Go with NO Pedaling?
This is one of our most commonly asked questions.
We believe there should be a standardized test so people can compare apples to apples since ebike manufacturers can say anything to get you to buy their bicycle.
There are companies that claim 75-100 miles on a charge. What does that mean? How much did the person weigh? Were there hills? Was there wind? Was the rider a professional cyclist? The real question is how much did they pedal?
An electric bicycle has unlimited range if the rider is pedaling constantly! Except for the flat test, every person's results will be different.
We actually test our bikes and here are the criteria we used for the Patriot, SamE, and DreamE.
175 pound rider
Wind under 5 mph
16.5 mph average
Patriot. Approximately 22 miles with standard battery. 42 miles with upgraded 36V/20Ah
SamE. Approximately 39
