Looking for a road legal e-bike but with an occasional boost of power?
If you are looking for more power than the average electric bike but worried about the legalities of such choice, the Stealth 500W is one of rare choices to consider. Our unique dual power system integrated in this e-bike allows the user to swap between two modes depending on whether you are on-road or off-road, enabling you to unlock the full power where it is safe and legal to do so.
The UK/EU regulations dictate that an e-bike must not exceed the rated power of 250W to be road-legal. Which is not great news for the thrill-seekers, power hungry among us who want to have the occasional fun off-road yet still be able to ride sensibly and legally on-road. A purchase of the common high powered electric bike will come with its legal implications. On the other hand, the practicality of a road-legal e-bike means giving up the extra power/speed one could enjoy off-road. So which do you choose?
CycloTricity had set out to resolve this dilemma and introduced the first electric bike range that combine both configurations!
Please note that this is not the same as a de-restriction switch which has been questionable from a legal standpoint.
The Stealth 500W is made for you who primarily intend on using the bike on-road, but looking to add the extra power for some occasional off-road riding.
