What exactly is an e-bike?
But what exactly does the term "e-bike" mean? Although the generic term "e-bike" is natural, not every electric vehicle with two wheels is an e-bike. Instead of the usual cyclists, pedals are the only ones that support the driver when they are pedaling – up to a maximum speed of 25 km / h. This is a significant relief, especially on gradients.
The e-bikes, on the other hand, move by pressing a button without pedaling the driver. Therefore, these wheels are subject to approval of six kilometers per hour and are rarely offered.
