Motor

The rear hub motor will have you zooming along up to 30km/hr. This is activated by the throttle on the handlebars and can be tailored up to 5 different speeds. 

Controls

There is an electric pad which controls the rear hub motor. You can set up to 5 different speeds for the rear hub motor to assist you. There is also a throttle on the right side of the handlebars to propel you along without the need to pedal.

 

Battery

The FD1 has a removable Lithium Battery which will get a nifty 35-40km per charge. It takes only 3 hours to fully charge from empty, so it will always be available when you need it. The battery needs a special key to unlock & remove it, so it will always be safe & secure.

Compact

With 2 x clips, this bike folds up to be a compact solution for you to take with you whether it be camping, an epic road trip or to store neatly in the corner of your garage. This doesn't impact the strength of the aluminium frame as it can comfortably carry up to 100kg.

F.A.Q

Can you ship this to me?

Absolutely we can! But we'll have to ship it via road freight as some Express Air Freighters aren't fond of having these batteries on their planes.

Can I legally ride this on public footpaths?

We recommend that this be used on private property but if you do decide to ride it in a public area then that is your choice. Just play safe, don't go too fast than what the surrounding environment can sustain (i.e. people, bad footpaths, other vehicles).

In public areas it is recommended that you don't use the battery assistance and use good 'ol fashioned pedal power to get you around.

Just check the local state laws to be sure. 

How do I charge it?

The FD1 comes with a charger that plugs into the standard Australian 240V wall socket. Just connect the other end into the battery and you'll be back on 2 wheels in about 1-2 hours (from flat)! If you're just just topping it up, it will be under an hour to get going again. You can remove the battery from the bike so you can charge it inside whilst the bike is quietly chilling elsewhere.

How often should I charge it?

With Lithium batteries, it's best to not let them get below 50% charge. So just plug it into the charger after every ride and try keep it fully charged. This will give you the optimum life span of the battery!

Do I still need to pedal?

Not necessarily! The FD1 features a throttle on the right handlebar so you can zoom along without pedalling. If you're relying solely on this to move you around then please note that this will impact the battery life. We suggest that you pedal as well - you'll feel better for it!

How do you remove the battery?

The battery is easily removable - just remove the seat, lift the handle and turn the key to the unlock position. But if you don't have the key, you'll have an exceptionally tough time removing it, so any thieves trying to steal your battery won't be successful.

You also need this key to turn on the battery, so without the key the motor is useless.

What's the warranty?

It has a 1 year warranty. This covers the frame, motor, and battery from manufacturing defects. The warranty doesn't cover any misuse or unconventional riding, such as snapping the bike from insane cliff jumps or destroying the motor from riding this with more than 100kg.

How does it handle in the wet?

The FD1 is ok in light rain, but conditions to ride it in the wet would generally make it unsafe - so leave it at home on a rainy day. If you are riding on wet terrain, make sure you clean up any mud / water from the bike before it dries. Pay particular attention to the motor, battery & chain.

Our bikes are water-resistant so they're ok in the wet, but you should not let the battery or motor get submersed in water

How does it perform going uphill?


Uhhh let's be honest - you're not getting one of these to help you climb Mt Everest. The motor is there for assistance, not for your primary source of movement. So if you're heading up a hill, get those glutes & calves pumping and you'll find the motor will lend a helping hand to make the climb a bit easier.

Is it easy to fold?

You betcha! There are 2 clips, one beside the pedals and another at the bottom of the handlebars. Just flip up the plastic clips and turn the aluminium braces to neatly fold up the bike.

How fast does it go?

With your legs, as fast as they can pedal! With the motor, it will assist you up to 30km/hr - perfect for climbing those hills or navigating the rough terrain.

What's the range?

You'll get up to 35-40km for the range, but this is dependent on how heavy the rider is and how many hills you're climbing (essentially how much strain you're putting on the motor). The beauty of this bike is that when it runs out of battery, it's pure pedal power baby! It also has 7 gears so this will help you for easy riding.  

Can I ride this in a camp ground?

It all depends on the camp ground rules, but given these don't make any noise then you can use them to nip off to the bathrooms or around the campsite without disturbing anyone!
