Agogs Presents 32 Km/h E-Bikes
PRAGUE, Czech Republic – While the regular speed limit for e-bikes is 25 km/h and km/h for speed pedelecs, Agogs recently launched the 32 km/h Tracer. According to Agogs “this maximum speed is much better suitable and comes closer to a regular bicycle experience”.
“We see a growing number of regular 25 km/h e-bikes being chipped to increase the speed limit which is set according to European regulation,” says Agogs Managing partner Jakob Dittrich. “Theoretically this could lead to a ban of electric bikes on public roads. However to meet demand of faster e-bikes we have decided to come up with a 32 km/h model. In the USA there is different regulation for electric bicycles than in the EU. In the US the maximum support is usually set at 20 mph (miles per hour), which is exactly 32 kilometres per hour.”
“To make the e-bike a successful part of modern urban transport, it is necessary that the support provided by motor not only helps you to ride steep up hill, but also when driving on roads with no elevation but where the rider wants to move as fast as a regular cyclist which is generally around 32 km/h,” explains Ditrich.
