Main Components Of An E-bike
The Alizeti power drive system is comprised of a 250-watt electric motor (750-watts of peak power) that is secured to an aluminum rear rack and provides electric power to the specially formulated drive wheel that turns the rear bike wheel.
The motor controller regulates the power to the electric motor. It controls how fast the motor spins and converts the DC electricity into the AC electricity needed to spin the drive wheel.
System controller & Pedal Sensor
The system controller is mounted to the handlebars of the bike and a simple press of a button instructs the motor controller what level of power or assistance to supply to the drive wheel.
The Alizeti 300C also has a pedal-assist sensor (PAS) whereby your pedalling effort is detected by the system and this information is then relayed to the motor controller to allow the electric motor to provide a predetermined level of assistance during your ride.
The battery pack is comprised of a series of small lithium power cells that provide power to the e-bike motor. The battery pack can be recharged by plugging it into a charger that is then plugged into a power outlet. Typically batteries weighing around 9 lb. can provide upwards of a 12- 25 mile range with speeds of 18-25 mph depending on how much the rider assists the system when pedaling. Unlike most e-bikes, the Alizeti 300C allows you to use one or two swappable battery packs in order to get additional distance if required. One of the two batteries can be easily removed if less overall weight is desired by the rider when riding shorter distances. Each Alizeti battery weighs only 2.5 lbs.
The display console allows you to view important information while riding. It allows you to keep track of the vehicle’s battery usage and performance characteristics. With the advanced models, you can also monitor the throttle, motor temperature, control pedal assist levels and much more. The display effectively becomes the dashboard of the e-bike and is able to display much of the electric bike’s ride behavior to the rider. More recent e-bike systems also incorporate mobile technology to display such information to the rider using mobile phones connected via bluetooth.
