A durable, well-integrated electric motor is the primary focus of the new Sanyo Eneloop electric bike. This pedal-assist electric bike has a barely noticeable 250 watt motor that is designed to help the rider pedal without effort. Its step-through frame and large tires are reminiscent of the once popular three-speed Dutch bikes. Even the wide, comfortable seat comes in a beautiful brown color with suspension. It's a retro look with a modern feel.
"Standard" pedal assist mode is a 1:1 ratio of electric power to human power. This means the energy put into pedaling is matched exactly by the motor. In "Power Up" mode, the motor will double this energy in a 2:1 ratio. Use this mode for steeper hills. The Eneloop Electric bike will automatically switch between these two modes in "Auto" mode, depending on the incline of the hill.
They don't call it the Eneloop for nothing: the regenerative braking charges the battery in an "energy loop" while you ride! Just pull on the rear brake lever while riding downhill (over 5 mph) and you'll start to recharge the battery. This is a unique feature on the Sanyo Eneloop electric bike that can extend the length of your trip!
Out of all the electric bikes we carry, nothing has the seamless feel of the Sanyo electric bicycle. It's not just a bike with a motor attached, it's a fully integrated smart-bike. Electric bike technology doesn't get much better than this.
