Powerful E-bike Motors Make Riding Easier

Having a powerful motor to boost you along when you pedal or hit the throttle is hard to describe unless you have experienced it for yourself. For most Americans, who may have been riding bikes their whole lives, the joy of hearing the whispering silent motor ferry you along to your destination is exhilarating. Nothing makes a bike ride quite as easy as a good motor. Make sure you keep your motor in good condition with these essential ebike motor tips.


 E-bike Pedal-Assist Makes Riding Easier

One of the simplest and most exciting ways to improve the riding experience is through the use of pedal assist. If you don’t know what pedal-assist is and how it differs from throttle-only mode, that’s okay. We have a primer on electric bike pedal assist vs. throttle mode that you can use to dive deeper. For now, though, the important thing to know is that many e-bikes provide additional power from the motor when you are pedaling.
Pedal-assist lets you ride faster and more easily than without pedal-assist. It is one of the main features of most e-bikes like the LM/LF 750. With the LM/LF ebike, you can select the intelligent pedal-assist level from 0 through 5. Setting a pedal-assist to level 0 will provide no assistance. To make your riding easier, you can set the pedal assist to level 1 to provide a small bit of help. But to really improve your riding experience, you can set the pedal-assist to level 4 or 5 and get the maximum assistance from the bike.
This is sure to make your everyday ride a bit easier as you won’t get too tired, exerting all your energy pedaling. Pedal-assist helps especially on uphill roads and paths. There is also a throttle-only mode on some e-bikes. Throttle-only mode does not require you to pedal at all and simply lets you ride the bike like a moped or motorcycle.


Long-Range E-bike Batteries Make Riding Easier

If you have ever run out of battery on a long ride with your e-bike, you know how frustrating it can be to pedal home manually when you weren’t expecting to do so. There are a few easy tips to ensure your ride is as easy as possible, and you can make it all the way home on a single charge. Number one, double-check your battery level before you ride and charge it to full if you plan on riding for a while. Number two, consider a long-range e-bike with a reputation for high-quality batteries and efficient motors. Finally, go easy on the throttle and only use it when you need it, such as for hills or tough terrain.


Step-Thru E-bikes Make Riding Easier

The LF series offer a step-thru model. The reason this is excellent for riders looking for an easier biking experience is that you can mount your bike more quickly and easily thanks to the lower frame design. For those with limited flexibility, the step-thru options make getting on and off the bike so much easier. Never worry about tipping over or pulling a leg muscle again when you use a step-thru e-bike.

Fat Tire E-bikes Make Riding Easier

If you find yourself traveling through sand, mud, snow, or loose gravel, a fat tire e-bike will make your life infinitely easier. The wide tire, deep treads, and natural absorption will limit the shocks and absorb bumps in the road for you, making the ride as easy as can be. Where skinny tires will slip and slide, fat tires on an electric bike combine to give you the traction and grip you need to conquer difficult paths.
