The Pendix crank motor system is the best electric conversion we've seen. It fits almost any bike, requires minimal cabling which results in a neat installation and your existing gearing and brakes are unaffected. The levels of power that the 250w motor and 48v lithium ion battery produce is quite incredible and given that it's made in Germany the quality is fantastic too!
The new eDrive is an improved motor powerhouse of the new generation. With 65 Nm torque the new motor is stronger but also smarter. In order to achieve these innovations, the mechanics and firmware in the motor have been significantly enhanced. The Pendix engineers have succeeded in increasing the proportion of active material in the electric machine by sophisticated adaptation of the stator design, thus increasing the maximum torque. The Pendix.bike PRO app completes the smart Pendix system.
How it works
The Pendix system is a torque based electric kit. This means that the motor will sense when you’re putting more effort into your cycling and it will then automatically increase the power to give you more assistance. As you reduce your cycling effort the motor will automatically reduce the power to conserve the battery. Because the system is automatic you don’t need any controls on the handlebar – all you need to do is pedal and the electric motor does the rest for you.
Pedal Assistance Modes
Eco Mode: Low level of assistance. Ideal for long, flat stretches or when you want assistance on a long ride
Smart Mode: Medium level of assistance. This is the best mode to be in for normal cycling activities. The noticeable support and acceleration is like having a good wind behind you
Sport Mode: High level of assistance. Ideal for hills, mountains, steep gradients, loose or irregular surface, moderate to high wind against you.
Quiet. Quieter. The Pendix mid engine
Don't be fooled by the understated nature of our power pack. The entire construction reflects the development competence of our engineers. The engine is barely 3 cm deep and has a diameter of less than 30 cm. All the smart technology is packed into this space and protected from external environmental impacts by the metal casing. The Pendix eDrive does not require a gears at all, so there are no mechanical wear parts. Where there is no wear and tear, there is no maintenance, so you get a motor that is maintenance-free. The gearless design also has two other advantages. Firstly, it is absolutely noiseless. On the other hand, you hardly feel any pedalling resistance when it is switched off. So you can decide for yourself when you need assistance and continue to use your bike as a bicycle.
