Disc Brakes-Hydraulic Electric Bikes

Electric Bikes with Hydraulic Disc Brakes

Thanks to innovators like Elon Musk and his Tesla initiative, electric vehicles are enjoying a well-earned spotlight. Still, some people prefer smaller rides with two fewer wheels, which lets them get a bit of exercise in the process. If this sounds like you, then perhaps electric bicycles can suit your fancy. The electric bike market is exploding with new additions from companies vying for a permanent spot in the market.

Pedal Assist

Pedal assist electric bikes with hydraulic disc brakes are good options if you want the closest feeling possible to true bike riding. Pedal assist works by powering the motor only when you pedal, thereby making it easier to propel the bike at higher velocities while requiring little work on your part. Pedal assist comes in four or five modes in ascending intensities. “Low” allows you a harder workout because the electric motor provides the least power to the wheels in this mode, while “medium” should give you a balanced experience. If you’re running late but want to get there with minimal effort, then engage “High” pedal assist and zoom through the bike lane.

Aluminium Frame

Aluminium frame electric bikes with hydraulic disc brakes ensure that your bike is lightweight but has the stopping power necessary for road safety. Aluminium is light but strong enough to support a rider’s weight along with that added by the electric motor system. These aluminium frame electric bikes come in many designs ranging from traditional to futuristic to those which mimic dragster motor bikes.

Why Disc Brakes?

Most all electric bikes are configured with some type of hydraulic disc brake system for the simple reason that these bikes have much more momentum than traditional bikes. Traditional bike brakes are not only inefficient at stopping an e-bike, but they will also wear off much faster.
