Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Electric Bike?

An electric bike, at first glance, looks identical to a traditional bike. The main difference is the electric motor that can be powered by pedal assist or with the use of a throttle.

What is a rear hub motor?

A rear hub motor on eBikes is generally placed on the rear wheel hub and propels the bike forward.

What is a mid-drive motor?

A mid-drive motor is integrated into the frame and offers increased torque as it is directly connected to the drivetrain. It is generally paired with mountain or off-road bikes that allow riders to tackle serious hills.

What is the range?

Range is the maximum distance an electric bike can travel on a single charge.

Throttle vs Pedal Assist?

The main difference is whether or not the rider needs to pedal to power the eBike. A throttle allows riders to simply push a lever to power the bike, while pedal assist requires the rider to pedal to activate the motor.

What is a torque sensor?

A torque sensor measures the amount of force being applied to the pedals. The harder you pedal, the more power you will receive from the motor. 

What is a cadence sensor?

A cadence sensor detects if you are pedalling and sends the appropriate power amount of power from the motor based on your assist level settings.

What kind of batteries are used?

Premium Samsung 21700 50E Cell batteries are used on most Rize bikes models.

What is a secondary battery?

A secondary battery allows riders to double the range. All bikes except the Fixie and Bolt come with integrated ports that allow easy installation of the secondary battery onto the frame.

What is the warranty on electric bikes?

All of our eBikes come standard with a 12-month warranty.
