Rather than having a throttle, the motor helps you along when you start to pedal. With a seven speed Shimano drivetrain you can still choose a comfortable gear and select the level of motor assistance you require depending on the terrain. Assisted E-bikes are limited to about 15 mph (25kph) and do not require any form of insurance, should you wish the Avanti can be ridden without the battery as a regular bike.
At the heart of the Avanti lies a 250 Watt Bafang brushless front wheel motor, the 36 volt battery sits discreetly locked in the rear pannier rack, easily removable for charging. The handle bar module provides battery status information via handy LEDâ€™s and has a button to adjust the level of assistance.
The Avanti is so easy to ride, itâ€™s not only the motor assistance. The lightweight aluminium frame has an extra low step crossbar so itâ€™s easy to get on and off. The long head tube combined with high swept back adjustable handlebars produces a relaxed upright riding position, easy on the back. The Avanti is fitted with slightly larger 700c wheels which gives the rider a smoother ride and also helps with balance.
