The Progear E-Shock is a 27.5″ Shimano Altus Rapid Fire Plus 8 speed Alloy Electric Mountain Bike with the Bafang MAX-01 Electric Drive System. The Progear E-Shock is a pedal assist bike using the acclaimed Bafang MAX-01 E-Bike system. The 36v/11.6 AH Phylion battery has Panasonic cells and as the matched Phylion charger complies to all required standards. The Alloy frame is available in three sizes, 16.5″, 18.5″ and 20.5″ ensuring a good fit for cyclists of all sizes and requirements.
– The 27.5″ tyres roll over obstacles more easily, have a smoother ride uphill or down, provide more traction and once moving are easier to stay moving.
– In short, they will take you anywhere, and the extra power from the Bafang electric motor will get you there and back again.
– Reliable Tektro Cable Disc brakes provide all the stopping power needed
– The alloy frame, rims and components make the Progear E-Shock light weight but with the strength where needed.
– The Mid Drive Bafang motor is 26v/250w and limited to 25km/h ensuring Australian Standards compliance.
– Mid drive motor powers through the drivetrain (transmission) of the bike which enables the motor to help with long & steep climbs and power up to high speeds on flat roads.
– The lower centre of gravity also provides better handling, easier to lift on and off a bike rack and removal of either wheel is easier.
Travel distance on our Electric Bikes:
The travel distance after a full charge on this e-Bike can vary from 30km to 50km.
There are several factors that will affect how long the battery will last after a full charge.
– Level of pedal assistance – higher level of assistance will use more battery charge
– Weight of Rider & Luggage – more weight may require more power from the battery
– Terrain & Weather Conditions – Terrain & wind may cause drag, and will require more power to maintain speed.
– Tyre Conditions – Incorrect tyre pressure may create more rolling resistance
– Traffic/Route Conditions – Stop/Start cycling may use more power to accelerate up to appropriate travelling speeds.
