Pedal Assist Sensors

Many companies will market their ebikes as either pedal assist or throttle operated, but this is somewhat misleading. In fact, there are three distinct ways to operate an electric bicycle, and each manner of operation dramatically changes the way an electric bike rides and performs. A good electric bicycle starts with a torque sensor that measures how hard you push on the pedals. You set a power level—from low assistance to high—and the bike gives you power in proportion to your pedaling, allowing you to ride farther, faster, and with greater ease and enjoyment.
