How Electric Bikes Work

What is an electric bicycle, anyway? When someone hears “electric bicycle,” the first image they imagine may be a scooter or electric motorcycle, but it looks pretty different. Just picture a regular bicycle, then add several electrical components to it like a motor, a battery, and a controller - all seamlessly integrated into the design. These items make up the fundamentals of all electric bicycles on the market.

How do electric bikes work? Electric bikes pedal and handle just like a regular bicycle. By and large, an electric bike will use the same parts too. The electric component is meant to augment human power, not completely replace it. It makes obstacles like hills and headwind more manageable, and allows you to travel further without getting as tired.

See our diagram for a more detailed look at how electric bikes work including the motor, battery, drivetrain, and charging process:
