One of the questions we get asked most often is, how far do your bikes go? (We get asked lots of other questions too, by the way, and the answers are all in our FAQs.)

Anyway, we thought it was about time for a proper range test. We knew the stated range that was calculated by the battery and motor suppliers we use, but we wanted to see for ourselves, in real world conditions. 'Real world' means HILLS, headwinds, stopping and starting... This is no controlled lab test. Hills is capitalised because our local area is rather rugged!

 

 

So, how far can you go on a 250W motor with a 20AH battery? The answer is: 88 kilometers

Some stats for you:

Rodrigo is 1.85m, ~75kg.
We used the full range of battery assistance levels (1-5)
It was all filmed as you see it, in one go, except a 45 min pause for lunch.
