This is the motor and controller combination that won the 2015 Sun Trip 7000 kilometer ebike race by a two day margin! Kinetic with rider Bernard Cauquil (54) beat the former winner on a Bosch system and all other EU brands competing and it is ready to transform your riding experience. Check the forums for the fame of the Kinetic (made by eZee Kinetic) conversion package. This is also the motor that we conquered Baldwin Street in Dunedin, the steepest street in the world! This are made in our own factory and is perhaps the most tested ebike products in the world today.
We offer our conversion motor kits in front wheel or back wheel planetary hub motors. In either wheel, you can choose from the standard 250 rpm (no load speed) wheel or the 200 rpm Hi-torque motor winding. These choices are critical for some applications. The 250 rpm wheel is what comes on our commuter ebikes and is the best for general riding purposes (for most people). This 250 rpm wheel gives a speed on flat ground without pedaling on a 26" wheel of about 33 kph. With the 28" (700mm) wheel, the flat ground speed is about 37 kph without pedaling. For the 20" wheel, the flat ground speed is about 28 kph.
If you select the 200rpm wheel,(offered on another page of our website) the top speed goes down about a fifth from our standard wheel, but the torque goes up similarly. This helps commercial operators or riders of exceptionally steep terrain to find their best assist within the 300 watt continuous limit required by the NZTA for electric assist bikes. (Note that our motors draw up to 700 watts on a steep hill climb, providing enormous assist, but run at much lower wattage on flat terrain, with a continuous wattage rating of 300). Our Kinetic controllers are world reknown for their quality and can handle the higher loads of these motors.
These components have criss-crossed Europe, Africa, the Silk Road, climbed the Himalayas, and now won the Sun Trip 7000 Km Race. The ongoing development of them over 13 years has produced a refined and thrilling e-bike assist package.
