How to choose your bike ?

Electric bike is a purchase that can satisfy a large number of people, because it is all public. It can satisfy athletes, non
athletes, and that, at all ages. The purchase of an electric bike represents a substantial investment, however the cost of recharging the battery and its maintenance are much lower than a car or a scooter. It is therefore a real alternative to go to his workplace if you live in town. The electric road bike has many advantages, we can cite the following:
● It is practical. It allows you to drive easily when there is wind,
or set up the ribs. Driving on this bike is comfortable.
● It is ecological. This is a means of transport that is not noisy and polluting. Which makes it possible to make a gesture for the planet.
● It is good for your health. Exercising every day is recommended by the World Health Organization, therefore making an outdoor bicycle and spending yourself while controlling your efforts is a very good thing.
● Maintenance is easy. The maintenance of the electric road bike is similar to a conventional bike. It is therefore inexpensive.

Can my velomad run in the rain ?

The battery and the control screen are waterproofs and allow you to
ride in the rain. However, it is necessary to check before
each manipulation of the removable battery, that the base where
The battery is not wet, to avoid any short circuit.

How many km can I travel with my velomad ?

Our average is 70km. The autonomy of an electric bike is calculated from the weight of the cyclist, the level and the frequency of use of the electrical assistance and the route. Weight: our bikes weigh approximately 20 kg thanks to their aluminum structures. With a cyclist of 80
kg, the set will be 100kg, hence the influence of the weight of the user. Electric assistance: Its use can propel the bike up to 25km/h (legal maximum authorized by European legislation). Beyond, assistance is cutting. With a permanent adjustment on half of the available power, the autonomy may be doubled.

The usefulness of having a bicycle helmet ?

To start it is important to recall the importance of a bicycle helmet. This is an element that aims to ensure safety at the head of the user during the bicycle practice. A helmet is therefore protection for the skull in the event of a fall. It thus reduces the risk of head trauma.
