Which eKit to pick?

Which kit is right for me? Front or rear drive?

The most cost effective strategy in a kit purchase is working out in advance what you’ll generally use it for. That way, you can pick a variation suitable for your needs without adding unnecessary costs. Front and rear drive kits both have their own unique characteristics. We have divided our kits into three categories that generally cover the needs of most people. To help you narrow down what’s right for you, here is a summary of the major differences:

250W Front Drive
The front drive kit is a geared hub motor which means it is a lot smaller and lighter than either of its rear drive counterparts, in fact, it is barely noticeable as a motor once installed. In other words, if a lightweight and well disguised kit is of importance, this is a good option to consider.
Combined with pedaling, it gives an all wheel drive experience offering better stability and weight distribution with the battery. It is also a lot simpler to install than a rear drive as there is no need to readjust any gears.
Even though 250W is less power than the other two categories, remember that 250W is the maximum power legally allowed on-road, so it is a perfectly adequate hill climber with equivalent power to the majority of purpose built electric bikes on the market.
The front drive kit is also the most cost effective, in other words, if you intend to use the kit on-road most of the time, this would be the pragmatic choice.

500W Rear Drive
We’ve introduced this category as it uses the same 36V batteries as the front drive motors. Which makes this kit strike the perfect balance between cost and power. Prices are not much higher than the 250W front drive but with the benefit that once you add the LCD computer, you can de-restrict it and get a glimpse of some of the power that you can experience with the high power off-road kits. In other words, it is the best of both worlds at great value.
This kit is recommended for you who are on a budget, does most of cycling on-road, but want the occasional off-road fun added.
Please note that the kit will be supplied restricted to 250W by default and will require the LCD add-on to de-restrict it to the full 500W for off-road use.

1000W Rear Drive
This category has been developed purely for the thrill seekers among us. Since it’s a 48V system, the battery makes it more costly than its counterparts. Having said that, it offers an adrenaline fueled ride rarely found in conversion kits. Unlike the 500W version which was mainly created for on-road use (and some occasional off-road fun), this kit has been purely developed for an enhanced off-road experience packed with torque and power. This kit will propel you to speeds up to 50km/h and climb incredibly steep hills.
This kit is recommended for the outdoorsy spirit, the mountain biker and you who appreciate the exhilaration that comes with speed and power. We’ve developed this configuration specifically for you and made this kit especially to satisfy the thrill you seek!
Please note that the kit will be supplied restricted to 250W by default and will require the LCD add-on to de-restrict it to the full 1000W for off-road use.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Front eKit

Equip your own bike with power assistance!

Wouldn’t it be great to keep cycling your ordinary bike yet never have to struggle with hills again? Or carry on your normal commute without having to arrive at work covered in sweat?
Now, you can! This electric bike kit (eKit) allows you to transform your bike into an e-bike for a fraction of the cost. Cycling will suddenly have a whole new dimension to it!

Once a Lithium-Ion battery is included, this is most probably the best value for money conversion kit you can find on the market.

The kit is a front motor-wheel design, making it incredibly simple to install. It usually takes less than an hour to complete the installation. But if you are not the DIY type, you can always seek assistance of a bike service shop. A full installation guide is included.

What’s included?

  • Motor: 250W brushless front hub, comes integrated in a wheel size of your choice (reaches maximum speed allowed by UK/EU regulation, i.e. 15.5mph)
  • Wheel sizes avilable: 20inch, 24inch, 26inch, 700c, 28inch or 29er
  • Wheel material: Double walled alloy rim with reinforced spokes to withstand extra tension.
  • Throttle: thumb type – gradual lever, the further it is pressed, the more power is provided.
  • Brake levers: Electric levers that also cut the power when applied.
  • Brake compatibility: Compatible with both disc brakes and V-brakes
  • Controller: 15A max current.
  • Cables: Motor cable and system cable (designed for simplicity and minimal wiring)
  • Box: for mounting the controller (only when a battery is purchased with the system)
  • Fork compatibility: Minimum 100mm between fork drop-outs (which is the vast majority of forks.

Apart from a battery, the above is all that is needed to fully convert a bicycle into an electric bike. All our kit packages include these essential items. All you need to add is a battery (and the optional PAS upgrade if required).

 

While this kit is powered through the use of a throttle, you can also add a Pedal Assistance System to upgrade your kit with further functions.

Pedal Assist System Upgrades

Why not upgrade your conversion kit by adding one of our optional Pedal Assistance Systems (PAS)?  A Pedal Assistance System is a device that senses your pedalling and makes your kit give automatic assistance, i.e. you do not have to press the throttle throughout your journey.

We have two PAS packages on offer:

  • Pedal Assistance System with LED Dashboard (Basic)
    This is our basic PAS upgrade which includes a handlebar dashboard allowing you to shift between three power levels; low, medium or high.
    Compatible with the 250W and the 500W systems only.
  • Pedal Assistance System with LCD Computer (Advanced)
    This is our top of the range electric bike kit upgrade for you who want to combine your conversion kit with state of the art technology, yet at a surprisingly good value. This package combines a Pedal Assistance System with an advanced LCD handlebar monitor which, not only gives you five levels of power, but also displays your speed, journey distance, time, average speed and many other readings.
    Compatible with the 250W, 500W and 1000W systems.

Although these are optional upgrades, you are highly recommended to install a Pedal Assistance System as it will transform your riding experience and improve the longevity of the battery. You can add one of these packages to your cart from the “Prices” tab.

IMPORTANT: If you wish to include a Pedal Assistance System with your eKit, the bottom bracket on your bike needs to be a Square Taper type (which is the most common bottom bracket on ordinary bikes). If you don’t have a square taper bottom bracket, you may need to replace it as well as the crank arms to make your bike compatible with the PAS. If in doubt, please consult a bike service shop on how to fit a square taper bottom bracket on your bike.
Alternatively, you may opt for purchasing the LED/LCD Dashboard only without the PAS if you want the Display functions but prefer not to fiddle with your bottom bracket.

 

Things to think about before purchasing this front drive conversion kit:

- The front forks on your bike need to have 100mm clearance between the drop-outs (which is the case with the vast majority of bikes).

- The fork drop-outs themselves need to be the standard 10mm size (this is also the most common size for fork drop-outs). If you happen to have the slightly smaller 9mm drop-out, you could file them down by 0.5mm on either side for the motor to fit. Please seek professional assistance for this part as doing it wrongly will be entirely at your own risk.

- The front motor is compatible with the majority of disc brakes. However, certain disc brake calipers are wider than usual which means they may block the hub motor from fitting inside the forks. Please refer to the motor dimensions on the motor tab and measure the clearance inside your forks.
If the dimensions don’t fit, you can replace your disc rotor to a 180mm version to clear the space from the motor, your local bike shop can help with this and provide the relevant adapter to change to a larger disc rotor.

- The electric brake levers supplied with the kits are mechanical. I.e. they are not compatible with hydraulic brakes or brakes that are combined with gear levers. However, installing the brake levers are not a necessity and the kit will work fine without them. Moreover, the throttle is spring-loaded, i.e. it will cut the power whenever the thumb is released from it for safety.

 

 

 

 

 

Rear eKit

Are you torn between choosing a powerful kit and a road-legal kit?
Well, have both in one!

The UK/EU regulations dictate that a kit must not exceed the rated power of 250W to be road-legal. Which is not great news for the thrill-seekers, power hungry among us who want to have the occasional fun off-road yet still be able to ride sensibly and legally on-road. A purchase of the common high-powered kit will come with its legal implications. On the other hand, the practicality of a road-legal kit means giving up the fun one could have off-road. So which kit do you choose?

With these new rear wheel kits, CycloTricity had set out to resolve this very dilemma for its customers. We have developed a unique system that allows the user to swap between two modes depending on whether you are on-road or off-road, allowing you to unlock the full power where it is safe and legal to do so.
This dual-mode system is embedded in the LCD Dashboard which can unlock the full power of the kit using a special code (this can be obtained upon signing the de-restriction terms of use).
Please note that this is not the same as a de-restriction switch which has been questionable from a legal standpoint.

We’ve gone to extraordinary lengths to ensure you get the most out of your conversion kit purchase, with the most robust and durable components today’s technology has to offer. All at arguably the best value for money kits found in the UK.

Electric bike kit specifications:

  • Motor: 500W or 1000W gearless brushless rear hub motor, comes integrated in a wheel size of your choice.
  • Restricted to 250W and 25km/h by default as a road-legal kit
  • 500W version reaches maximum speed of 32km/h once de-restricted (requires a 36V battery)
  • 1000W version reaches maximum speed of 50km/h once de-restricted (requires 48V battery)
  • Wheel size: 26inch, 700c, 28inch or 29er
  • Wheel material: Double walled alloy rim with reinforced spokes to withstand extra pressure.
  • Throttle: thumb type – gradual lever, the further it is pressed, the more power is provided.
  • Brake levers: Electric levers that also cut the power when applied.
  • Controller: 22A for the 500W system or 30A for the 1000W system.
  • Cables: Motor cable and system cable (designed for simplicity and minimal wiring)
  • Bag: for mounting the controller
  • Brake compatibility: Compatible with both disc brakes and V-brakes
  • Fork compatibility: 135mm between fork drop-outs (which is the vast majority of rear forks that are suitable for a derailleur)

Apart from a battery, the above is all that is needed to fully convert a bicycle into an electric bike. All our kit packages include these essential items. All you need to add is a battery (and the optional PAS upgrade if required).

IMPORTANT: If you wish to include a Pedal Assistance System with your eKit, the bottom bracket on your bike needs to be a Square Taper type (which is the most common bottom bracket on ordinary bikes). If you don’t have a square taper bottom bracket, you may need to replace it as well as the crank arms to make your bike compatible with the PAS. If in doubt, please consult a bike service shop on how to fit a square taper bottom bracket on your bike.
Alternatively, you may opt for purchasing the LCD Dashboard only without the PAS if you want the de-restriction functions but prefer not to fiddle with your bottom bracket.

 

Things to think about before purchasing this rear drive conversion kit:

- The rear drive motors are only compatible with a 3speed, 5speed, 6speed, 7speed, 8speed, 9speed or 10speed freewheels (not compatible with a cassette type gear). If you have a single speed bike, you can install a 3speed freewheel for compatibility (and use only one of the 3 speeds).

- The rear forks on your bike need to have 135mm clearance between the drop-outs (which is the case with the vast majority of bikes)

- The LCD computer is necessary to unlock the full power of these high power motors. Can be purchased at a later stage if full power is not immediately needed.

- The electric brake levers supplied with the kits are mechanical. I.e. they are not compatible with hydraulic brakes or brakes that are combined with gear levers. However, installing the brake levers are not a necessity and the kit will work fine without them. Moreover, the throttle is spring-loaded, i.e. it will cut the power whenever the thumb is released from it for safety.
