E-BikeKit™ Front 500w Geared Hub Motor Conversion Kit
with 48 Volt 10 Amp Hour (AH) Li-ion Battery Pack and 3 Amp Charger
Temporarily out of stock. Expected ship date is June 1st, 2015. Pre-order now!
The E-BikeKit 500-1000w geared conversion kit is powered by an internal 5:1 planetary gear hub motor with clutch. The clutch in the geared motor offers zero drag when pedaling and not engaging battery power. This 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 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. 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.

Lithium batteries provide a high level of performance for the duration of each discharge (unlike seal lead-acid where performance is diminished 1:1 as the pack is emptied). Lithium batteries have a much higher power to weight ratio than lead-acid and 5-8 times the number of charge cycles (how many times a rechargeable battery can be charged from 0-100%). The lithium option costs more initially ,but over time, the “cost-per-cycle” is about half the cost of lead-acid. Lithium packs also require less care as they can be left partially charged, and do not require immediate charging after each use. All batteries MUST be properly cared for during storage.
