The OG of the Everyday lineup, and it continues to turn heads! The Exploit 1.0 E-bike is powered by a 36V lithium-ion battery that drives a 250W rear hub motor, taking you through 9 different levels of pedal assist to smooth out hills and save those legs for the Stairmaster. The 21 speed Shimano drivetrain ensures that you are always in the right gear, and the LCD display gives you all the info you need to know about your battery level, speed, or distance travelled. It even has a USB port to charge your phone.
So, what is Pedal Assist, you ask? Exactly what it sounds like – when you pedal the bike with the one of the 9 assist levels selected, the pedal sensor will activate the hub motor and supply power to the back wheel, propelling you forward. When you stop pedaling, the pedal sensor cuts power to the hub motor. At Level 0, there is no pedal assist enabled, and then 1 through 9 are consistently increasing assistance levels, all the way up to 32km/h. If you are outside of the speed range for the current level, the hub motor will cut power until you drop back into the speed range or select a higher level.
Riding a pedal assist electric bicycle is not like any other experience you have had on a bike. You can ride easier, ride further, and have way more fun.
