We have two types of geared motor kits, eZee and Outrider. The eZee system has been one of our most popular high-end packages. The V2 eZee hub motor generates an impressive amount of hill climbing torque for its 4kg size and works great in the 500-1000 watt power range. It is available both front and rear and comes complete with a puncture-resistant Schwalbe Marathon Plus tire as well.
The smaller Outrider motor kits are ideal for those who want a minimal weight 250-500 watt front drive system. At the moment we have these stocked as bare hubs only rather than prelaced into a wheel, but can lace them with Sapim spokes into any size rim.
The geared hubs are light weight, small enough to be laced into 16” wheels, and coast freely when unpowered so that there is no drag on the bicycle. On the downside, they have more internal complexity and components that can fail, can’t do regenerative braking, and may generate some audible gear noise while running.
