What is a Pedal-Assist eBike?
The Easy Motion Rebel Cross Lite PW is a pedal-assist eBike. This means that there is a battery motor that helps the pedals turn when you are pedaling, but there is no throttle like a motorcycle or dirt bike, so you need to pedal to receive the assistance. This makes it feel like you are riding a traditional old-school bicycle, but you have the benefit of it being less physically demanding and less tiring, especially when faced with a long uphill climb.
The joys of an eBike
The pedal-assist system is surprisingly intuitive to your needs. The bike seems to know when you need a boost! Effectively the bicycle senses when you are putting more pressure on the pedals and the battery seamlessly kicks in. The result is that you don’t need to be an ultra-fit athlete or a hardened road cyclist to be able to have the pleasure of experiencing the beauty of the Cuban scenery in the best way possible: riding silently along Cuba’s back roads; through villages; preserved natural areas; and charming rural settings.
4 Levels of Assistance
The eBike has four different levels of assistance from “Eco+” through to “High”. This means you can set the bike to your own personal level of fitness and also be able to switch to a higher level of assistance when faced with a steep uphill or a strong headwind, or otherwise at the end of the day when you might be feeling tired.
