Watt New York Electric Single Speed City Bike
The NEW YORK is stripped of everything that is not necessary. Unlike the other models, this bicycle has no mounting points for a luggage rack, lock or mudguards. A fairly minimalist bicycle, of which you can buy almost all parts on every street corner. This makes maintenance easy and affordable. By extension, you can also easily play with the bicycle elements yourself. The real Fixie lovers know how to handle this. Mounting different tires, saddle or handles is done in no time. And that is now also possible with this electrically powered basic bicycle.
Light and strong
The frame of the NEW YORK is made of aluminium which makes the bike light and strong. The bike weighs less than 16 kilograms, so you can also use it if you want to cycle without pedal assistance. Furthermore, a heavier resistance of 2.75 was used. This is the ratio between the front and rear sprockets. Also called gear ratio. This means that you can cycle nicely at a higher speed without having to pedal hard. The disadvantage is that cycling or acceleration is heavier. However, the electric motor gives you instant support, which eliminates this drawback.
Up to 25 km per hour support
The electric motor can be found in the rear axle and has 250 WATT of power. The drive is activated via a rotation sensor on the crankshaft. The motor has 5 positions from approximately 5 km to 25 km per hour support. The modes are pre-set, but you can adjust it according to your own wishes.
Electric cycling makes you just a little faster than on a normal bicycle. To ensure that you can stop quickly if necessary, we have equipped the NEW YORK with mechanical disc brakes.
The bike gets its energy from a 36V - 10.5AH lithium battery. To charge your bike you will get a charger that connects to the bike itself. Comparable to charging your mobile phone. Charging a completely empty battery takes about 3 hours. The average battery life is about three years or about 500 charge cycles. Keep in mind that the range of a battery can decrease after that. However, replacing the battery is easy. You can do this yourself or have it done by a bicycle repairer.
40 - 70 km range
How far you can cycle with a full battery (the range) depends on a number of factors. It depends on your own weight, the support mode you choose and the conditions in which you ride. For example, with strong headwind and support position 5, the range is smaller than on a flat windy road and support position 1. In general, you can assume that you can cover a distance between 40 and 70 kilometres. More than enough for daily trips through the city.
