OUR ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS

What is the meaning of e-bike?
The Italian legislation (art. 50 of the Decree Law n° 285 of the 30 of April 1992) gives the following explanation: “Velocipede is a vehicle, usually having two or three wheels, that is propelled by the rider; pedelecs (Pedal Electric Assisted Cycles ) are also considered velocipedes and they are cycles equipped with an auxiliary motor having a maximum continuous rated power of 0.25 KW, of which the output is progressively reduced and finally cut off as the vehicle reaches a speed of 25 km/h, or sooner, if the cyclist stops pedaling”.

What is the meaning of E.P.A.C.?
E.P.A.C. (Electrically Power Assisted Cycle) is the acronym that, according to the European Standard EN 15194:2005, identifies an electric assisted bike which is equipped with pedals and an auxiliary electric motor with all the characteristics presented previously for pedelecs according to the art. 50. The Italian and European Standards for electric assisted e-bikes (E.P.A.C.) indicate the following technical requirements:
– the auxiliary motor provides assistance only if the cyclist is pedaling;
– the assistance provided by the motor is progressively reduced and finally cut off as the vehicle reaches a speed of 25 km/h, or sooner if the cyclist stops pedaling.
World Dimension e-bikes are planned and realized by respecting both Italian and European Standards, as a consequence they are considered electric power assisted cycles – E.P.A.C. – and therefore they are velocipedes, with all the fiscal and legal advantages that might come.

While choosing an e-bike what is important to know about batteries?
The battery is one of the most important components of any e-bike and it is a lithium-ion battery (Li-ion). They can be put under the seat, on the luggage, along the frame or integrated in the frame.

The capacity is the main characteristic of any battery. It is measured in watt-hour (Wh) and this unit derives by multiplying the ampere-hour (Ah) and Volt (V). Therefore, a common 36V 10Ah battery has a capacity of 360Wh (36V x 10Ah). The higher the value Wh of the battery, the more it will last during the time. With the same level of assistance it lets you cover more kilometers or more difficult grounds. The AUTONOMY of a battery of a bike depends on different elements: the weight of the cyclist, the type of the itinerary, the tire pressure, the level of assistance provided by the motor or the weather.

Do battery charge while pedaling?
No, they do not recharge while pedaling because a generator will leave power to the cyclist (it is better to waste energy for the itinerary) and it will cause pedaling the e-bike to become more difficult.

How much is the autonomy of a battery?
The average distance allowed in standard conditions is about 50 Km. The actual autonomy depends, not only on the accumulator status, but it is also the result of different elements: the type of itinerary, the disparity of the ground, the speed, the weight, the tire pressure, the road surface, how much wind there is, how much brakes the cyclist does and the strength and energy of the cyclist.

How does it take for electric bike batteries to charge?
The time that it takes for the battery to charge is about 6-8 hours. For the first time of charge it is recommended to charge the battery for at least 12 hours. Moreover, you should charge the battery at least once a month for 6/8 hours if you do not use the e-bike.

How much does it cost the charge?
A full charge costs about 0.10 – 0.15 EURO.

How much does it cost a replacement battery?
The price of a new battery might be between 150€ for a kit Pb 36V 12Ah to €465  for a so called “bottleBattery” on the frame for Panasonic cells. Just watch our spare parts price list and you can find the right battery for your e-bike with the exact price.

Is the battery pack extractable and how much does it weight?
All the battery packs of our e-bikes are extractable and they have an handle to take the battery out of the bay. In this way you can charge the battery apart from the bike at any power point. The weight of the Pb battery pack is 13 kg, the weight of the Lithium battery pack is 3kg/3.5 kg.

If not pedaling does the bike stop?
When you stop pedaling, at the beginning the bike will go by inertia but then the motor will stop supplying power as it is indicated by the law.

Can e-bikes be used while it is raining?
All electrical and mechanical components of e-bikes can be exposed to bad weather conditions. Anyway it is recommended to not use the e-bike with heavy rain.

Should I pedal on hills?
Yes, the cyclist must pedal. If he/she does not pedal the motor cannot start to provide power and assistance. All our e-bikes have the 6v Shimano derailleur, which allows you to change your way of pedaling according to your needs and according to the grade of the road by providing good assistance.

Which hills can be done?
An e-bike can be used for hills thanks to different levels of assistance and speed. The cyclist should put some effort but the e-bike will make the difference. With an e-bike you can cover long climbs with a grade of 5-6%.

Which is the speed that your e-bikes can reach?
The motor allows you to reach the speed of 25 km/h. According to European rules, as the vehicle reaches a speed of 25 km/h the assistance provided by the motor is reduced. The cyclist might also reach more speed on downhill roads or thanks to his/her muscle energy.

Can I continue to use the bike if the charge of the battery is low?
All our e-bikes can be used as muscular and normal bikes. The aluminum frames let the bikes become lighter and pedaling without the motor will be more comfortable.

What is the payload of e-bikes?
An e-bike might have a payload of 100 kg. The weight of the cyclist is included.

Must I wear an helmet?
You are not obliged to wear the helmet. In fact, according to a legal and fiscal point of view, our e-bikes are considered velocipedes and they are like simple and muscular bikes. However, independently to legal obligations, it is suggested to wear an helmet especially on most dangerous and difficult grounds. If you are carring a child in the sit it is better to protect him/her with the helmet.

Must I have a driving licence to ride an e-bike?
If the e-bike is regular and pedal assisted, like ours, you do not need the driving licence! All our e-bikes are considered normal bikes according to legal and fiscal aspects. You must not trust sellers that are going to sell you bikes with accelerators without respecting laws! Pay attention to them because in that case normal bikes would become scooters with all obligations that will come: driving licence, helmet, car tax and car insurance!

Should I pay the car tax or the road tax?
Absolutely not! In fact, all our e-bikes are considered classic and normal bikes according to fiscal and legal aspects. Pay attention and do not trust to those who would like to sell bikes with accelerators that do not respect the law. In that case you are not buying a normal bike but a scooter and as a consequence you will need driving licence, helmet, car tax and car insurance!

Do I need to do the car insurance?
Absolutely not! In fact, all our e-bikes are considered classic and normal bikes according to fiscal and legal aspects. However, the cyclist is responsible for possible damages to things or people. As a consequence, it is recommended to verify if there are other assurances already signed that might cover the risks previously indicated.
