Our Bio-Responsive Control Option
Program it with your preferred amount of effort, and then ride it like a normal bike. When you reach the energy threshold you set, the bike proportionately applies power to help you. Receiving signals from a torque sensor on the crank spindle, the control system continuously measures your power output (torque x rotational speed at the crank) and uses this information to control the motor. It also displays this information both in real time and cumulatively on a monitor, and can log it in a data logger (with GPS coordinates if you like). It also has a port for an optional high-intensity headlight powered by the bike battery.
So, if there is an intimidating hill on your route, you can climb it without overtaxing yourself. If your commute to work is beyond the distance you like to comfortably cycle, no worries; just set the energy threshold at whatever reduced level you feel comfortable with over that distance and the bike will do the rest.
The bike provides all the freedom and stimulation of outdoor exercise without concern for physical limitations, constraints or terrain.
The programmed threshold can be temporarily overridden to apply power at any time by using the throttle. As long as you don’t touch the throttle though, the bike makes you work up to whatever threshold you set…to keep you honest in your exercise program! The fun part is that unlike virtually all other exercise machines, this bike can take you places. Exercise becomes fun. The speed is exhilarating and you are outdoors. The display shows and records your energy output at the crank, as well as many other parameters. A high-intensity headlight powered by the e-bike battery, and various other devices like a USB port for smart phone GPS navigation, and a data logger can be added with this option.
