E-BikeKit Rear Geared Hub Motor Conversion Kit with 48-Volt Li-ion Battery Pack and Charger.

The E-BikeKit Performance conversion kit is powered by an internal 5:1 planetary gear hub motor with a clutch. The clutch in the geared motor offers zero drag when pedaling and not engaging battery power. This (geared) motor is more efficient, resulting in increased range (especially with "start/stop" riding), has more starting torque, and has greater hill-climbing ability than a Heavy-Duty (direct-drive) motor of equal power rating. The motor is also smaller in diameter for increased stealth and 3.4lbs lighter than the 500w direct-drive.

Who's it for? This premium electric bike conversion kit system is for those that want the best of the best in performance, efficiency, weight, stealth, and speed. The top speed is 28MPH. There is a 300lb total load limit, so if you plan on more than that, look to a heavy-duty system.

System Specs:
Watts: Nominal 500w/1000w
Top Speed: Approx. 26"=26mph/ 700c=27mph / 24"=24mph / 20"=20mph
Range: 48v 9Ah=9-18 miles / 48v 10Ah=10-20m / 48v 14Ah=14-28m / 48v 20Ah=20-40m
Charge Time: 3-6hrs (0-100%) (depending on battery size (ah))

Battery Choice: We currently offer 4 battery pack models; all are li-ion using 18650 cells. The E-BikeKit is available without a battery and can be powered by any 36v or 48v battery pack. Kits purchased without a battery pack come with a battery wire harness for connecting to the E-BikeKit controller.

48 volt(v)-9 Ampere hour (Ah) Shrink Pack - This e-bike battery is a lightweight and easy to carry pack. You can expect a range of 9-18 miles per charge (dependent on total load, input, and terrain/route). Two of these packs will fit into one canvas battery bag (included) nicely, offering the option of taking one or two of these depending on your range needs. You do have to connect them one at a time as needed; same for charging.

48v10Ah w/ 2-Tier Rack - This li-ion e-bike battery offers a nice finished look plus a locking mechanism for securing the battery in the middle section of an included 2-tiered rack. The top of the rack remains clear and available. With this battery, you can expect a range of 10-20 miles per charge (dependent on total load, input, and terrain/route).

48v14Ah Water Bottle Battery - This electric bike battery pack is intended for mounting to your bikes existing water bottle mounts. This pack has a lock and key set plus it is side-released from the mount which makes it mostly universal. Please print the guide to be certain the pack will mount on your bike before buying. Although the mount is designed for the water bottle area, theoretically it can be mounted in many areas with some light fabrication. With this battery, you can expect a range of 14-28 miles per charge (dependent on total load, input, and terrain/route).

48v20Ah Water Shrink Pack - this e-bike battery is the largest capacity, longest range e-bike battery we offer. You can expect a range of 20-40 miles per charge (dependent on total load, input, and terrain/route). This pack weighs 14lbs and comes in our canvas battery bag with Velcro straps for securing it to the top of a conventional rear rack (not included).

Wheel Size:
 You can find your wheel size written on your tire. Available size options for this conversion kit are: 16", 20", 24", 26", 700c and 29er. Acceptable tire widths for the E-BikeKit rims: 1.15" (29mm) - 2.25" (57mm).

Freewheel and Spacing: Our motors are intended for a 7-speed freewheel and provide 135mm OLD (dropout) spacing with a 7-speed freewheel and 15mm disc-offset.

When using an 8, 9, or 10-speed freewheel, this will increase the OLD by about 3.5mm per speed. When we assemble the motor here, we will dish and space it correctly to fit this. To install the wider wheel, you may need to spread the dropouts of the bike open in order to fit. 

If you are not using disc brakes, so don't need the 15mm disc-offset, we can reconfigure the spacing to fit 135mm in many cases.

Please consult your local dealer if you are unsure about the compatibility of your bike or trike.
