Cycling for everyone with the electric mountain bike

Electrically assisted mountain biking (VTTAE), the first “ancestors” of which appeared in the US Patent office registered several e-bike patents since 1895 to 1899 (Ogden Bolton patented battery-powered bicycle in 1895 before falling into oblivion, is currently booming, in particular thanks to technological progress from which they benefit.

On paper, the concept is simple: the electric mountain bike is a classic mountain bike equipped with an auxiliary motor and a rechargeable battery.

Today, the Lithium battery (there are different models) weighs around 3 kilos and has supplanted much heavier lead or nickel batteries (a lead battery weighed around 13 kilos…).

Amplification of movement rather than pure assistance

It is indeed an aid on a VTTAE, however you have to pedal to trigger this assistance which allows you to amplify your effort.

The motor, powered by the battery, therefore amplifies the movement of the crank set. This assistance coupled with pedalling is cut off as soon as the speed exceeds 25 km / h (Australian regulations).

Electric mountain bikes that can exceed this speed are no longer assimilated to bicycles but to mopeds within the meaning of the Highway Code, and must withstand the constraints (motorcycle helmet, registration, compulsory insurance).

Bikes generally offer 3 to 6 levels of assistance that the user selects using an on-board console depending on the difficulty of the route. Battery management then becomes a real issue during a long hike. The battery is placed under the seat or on the luggage rack.

As for the motor, it can be inserted in one of the wheels, or better (because better balance of the bike) at the level of the bottom bracket.

As an anecdote, on some high-end competition bikes, a miniaturized engine can be hidden in the frame and therefore invisible; which explains why in major cycling competitions such as The Tour Down Under, especially at the arrival of The Tour Down Under, the riders' bikes were checked to detect possible mechanical cheating. The inspectors dismantled the crank sets and inspected the inside of the tubes with a camera.



The growth of electric mountain bikes in Australia 

Far from the number of electric bikes sold in China, 32 million in 2018, sales in Australia are taking off with 2.7 million electric bikes sold in Oceana in 2018.

The advantages of electric mountain bikes are numerous.

The electric mountain bike allows people who do not have the physical aptitudes to practice mountain biking to indulge in the joys of off-road treks.

The electric mountain bike opens up new perspectives and the discovery of new spots. On weekdays, more and more people go to work on an electric mountain bike. The electric mountain bike can therefore be useful to you on weekdays to get to work and pleasant on weekends to go for a walk.
