Answers to the Question: How Far Can I Go?

Generally, the higher the Wh is, the great the range you can travel, in theory. Reality is different though, there are a lot of factors that need to be taken into consideration:

  • The weight of the bike: the heavier the bike is, the more power it uses to move it along. Quality eBikes, such as Specialized, Scott, Jamis, and Orbea make sure the weight and balance are a focus. 
  • The quality of the motor: smooth starting motors save power and increase range. Brose, Bosch, and Shimano motors are at the top of the category right now and each of them designs motors according to where the bikes will be ridden. The motor for an eMTB will have different settings than an urban or commuter bike, so one size fits all does not work well with eBikes. 
  • Where, when, and how you ride: the terrain makes a big impact on travel range. A smooth flat road will allow you to ride further than a poor-quality road with large climbs in it. Although it may not seem like it the wind and temperature also affect battery life. Finally, how the power settings are used and your pedal style will both play an important role, if you ride in the highest setting the entire time you will not go as far as using the lowest. As for pedaling, you should strive to pedal with the same cadence throughout the ride by changing gears, this will help prolong battery life.
