Boost your pedal power

At the heart of the Gtech ebike is our lat­est Lithi­u­mion bat­tery, the same light­weight, high per­for­mance tech­nol­ogy that is used to power elec­tric cars – giv­ing you a range of up to 30 miles in Eco mode.* Plenty for a day’s ad­ven­ture or most trips to work and back. A built in com­puter con­tin­u­ally mea­sures your ped­alling, smoothly ad­just­ing the power de­liv­ered to the main­te­nance-free motor, giv­ing you a boost when you need it. Ev­ery­thing is au­to­matic; if you pedal, the bike will help you up to 15mph, but you can pedal harder if you like and go faster. You will feel its power most if you reach a hill and start to slow down.

Pure sim­plic­ity

Rid­ing the Gtech ebike is very sim­ple, you pedal to go faster and brake to slow down. There are no con­fus­ing gears and the oily chain has been re­placed by a clean car­bon belt drive as used on high-per­for­mance motor cy­cles. The bat­tery eas­ily re­moves from the frame for charg­ing. A mains charger is sup­plied, which will fully recharge the bat­tery from flat in just 3 hours. The ebike has an easy to read LED dis­play, to tell you how much charge you’ve got re­main­ing. You can choose from two cruis­ing speeds at the touch of a but­ton, or turn the power off to ride it like an or­di­nary bike.

Avi­a­tion grade, light­weight alu­minium frame

The frame of the Gtech ebike is made from the same ma­te­rial used in mod­ern air­craft – light, strong and de­signed to last. The alu­minium al­loy is also rust re­sis­tant, ca­pa­ble of with­stand­ing the el­e­ments whether you are us­ing the bike on roads or coun­try paths. Thanks to its light­weight con­struc­tion, the Gtech ebike weighs 16kg, so you can ride it eas­ily with or with­out the power turned on.

Save money. Save time.

The aver­age cost of a car is £3,500 per year**, and the aver­age cost of a Lon­don travel card is £1,800 per year. The Gtech ebike costs less than 4p† to charge, and there’s no road tax or in­surance to pay. You’ll also be out there, get­ting fit­ter, rather than stuck in a traf­fic jam or on a crowded train. Δ
