One of the key features that many e bikes allow is a throttle. This means that you can push a lever and ride your bicycle without pedaling. There are a few situations where you’d want this feature.
When Your Tired
On a long recreational ride or a road ride, like a commute, there’s going to be times when you get really tired and you don’t want to pedal. Maybe you’re feeling ill. Maybe it’s the end of a long day. And you may be miles away from your car or home.
On a conventional bike, you’ve got to dig in and keep pedaling. But with a throttle power bike, you can get back home and rest.
When You Want to Go Fast and Focus on the Road
Sometimes it’s just fun to cruise. Sometimes you want to go really fast, or jump rocks, and you just don’t want to be distracted by the effort necessary when pedaling.
Throttles on E Bikes Use a Lot of Power
You’re going to drain your battery pretty quickly when you use the throttle. So you want to be judicious about when you use this awesome function.
