The 2011 e-Bike range of BH contains no less than fifteen different models, including eight city bikes, four sport model and even three road race bikes. Spanish bike maker BH uses two assisted-pedalling systems from Panasonic, the Integrated Bottom Bracket System (IBS) and the Front Drive System (FDS).

The IBS technology optimizes distribution of the additional weight of the electrical elements by integrating the motor, control unit, and torque sensor in a compact unit located next to the pedals. With this system the motor applies the force directly on the chain simulating constant pedalling. The FDS incorporates the motor in the hub of the front wheel and the torque sensor in the pedal area.

The top model in the city range is the BH Emotion Avant equipped with front drive system, featuring a Panasonic 250W compact motor with brushless technology and a rechargeable Panasonic 26V/8Ah or 26V/10 Ah lithium-ion removable battery.

The three most striking e-Bike models in BH’s 2011 range are the Sport Road, Sport Carbon and the Sport Carbon Ultralight, with BH trying to generate sales in an unlikely segment of the market. For example the Sport Carbon Ultralight with IBS weighs just 14.3 kilograms. That’s what you call a light weight e-Bike! Not only in weight, but also in specifications, the Sport Carbon Ultralight is the top of the market model, featuring a Shimano Dura-Ace drivetrain, a FSA SLK carbon handlebar, and a carbon seatpost.
