The range is affected by a number of factors, such as:
– Assistance level
– Speed
– Gear shifting behavior
– Tire type and tire pressure
– Age and condition of the battery
– Route profile (gradients) and conditions (road sur-
– Headwind and ambient temperature
– Weight of eBike, rider and luggage
For this reason, it is not possible to predict the range
accurately before and during a trip. However, as a
general rule:
– With the same assistance level on the eBike drive:
The less energy you need to exert in order to reach
a certain speed (e.g. by changing gears optimally),
the less energy the eBike drive will consume and
the higher the range per battery charge will be.
– The higher the selected assistance level under oth-
erwise constant conditions, the smaller the range
will be.
