The Next Generation – Pedego, Getting Better & Better
August 11, 2022
Pedegos are famous for delivering the greatest riding experience on Earth. Once you ride a Pedego, everything else is just an ebike.
It’s hard to imagine raising the electric bike bar any higher, but that’s exactly what’s been done with the next generation upgrades to the most popular Pedego models. Performance, safety, and the pure joy of riding have been lifted to even greater heights.
Let’s take a look at the latest and greatest additions to the greatest electric bike!
Pedego’s whisper quiet 500-watt motor delivers best-in-class acceleration and hill climbing. It boasts 50 per cent more power than earlier models with minimal trade-offs in weight and efficiency. The sensation of power is exhilarating, and yet with Pedego proprietary PedalSense™ software, it never feels like too much.
Pedego’s exclusive Safety-First Throttle is the first and only of its kind. It features redundant mechanical and electronic safety cut-off switches to eliminate the possibility of a runaway bike. It also includes an extra bright, color-changing LED indicator to alert riders when the throttle is activated.
Safety & Comfort First
Pedego’s new and improved headlight is designed to help you both see and be seen. It’s exceptional brightness practically turns night into day, plus it spreads the beam over a wide area to clearly illuminate the entire road or path ahead. The sleek design also features a wrap-around safety light for enhanced side visibility.
Most electric bikes use standard bicycle drivetrains that are designed for much lower average speeds. As a result, it’s common for ebike riders to feel like they are “spinning out” at higher speeds. Pedego’s oversized chainring solves this problem and makes it comfortable to pedal normally at higher speeds.
Next Generation Battery – Industry Leading Range and Power
Pedego has been on the cutting edge of electric bike technology since 2008. The latest generation of Pedego batteries pushes the boundaries even farther. They set a new standard for safety, range, power, user-friendliness, and serviceability.
That’s not to mention the sleek and modern style that is sure to turn heads wherever you ride.
The most eye-grabbing feature of the new battery is the ultra-bright integrated rear light. State-of-the-art LED technology is both energy efficient and highly visible. An oversized lens wraps around for added visibility on both sides. Day or night, it’s impossible to miss.
In addition to being seen, predictability is a key part of bike safety. An automatic brake light is connected to your brake levers. Turn signals with an easy-to-use switch are standard on Platinum Edition models and available as an optional upgrade on other compatible models.
The new battery is available in a jaw-dropping 52-volt 17.5-amp hour option that delivers an unparalleled riding experience. The 910-amp hour (volts x amp hours) capacity has a realistic estimated range of 38-76 miles.
The 52-volt battery cell configuration provides a noticeable boost of power over traditional 48-volt batteries. Combined with Pedego’s advanced motor technology and proprietary Pedalsense™ software, the real-world performance simply can’t be beat.
The most important part of every Pedego is the person riding it. Countless hours were spent perfecting the form and function of the new battery to provide the best possible user experience. User-friendly upgrades include a noise-free smart charger, IP certification for dust and water protection, and auto-sleep function for maximum longevity.
One of the most frequent comments we heard during the prototyping process was praise for the new handle. It allows a better grip that makes the battery far easier to carry and slide on and off the bike. Small details can make a big difference!
Pedego batteries are built to last. They are backed up by an exclusive 5-year limited warranty, and we’ve seen batteries last even longer than that. So, the new batteries are designed to be easily serviced by your local Pedego store.
The cell pack and electronics inside the battery case are all modular with quick connections that don’t require soldering. The rear light and lens assembly can also be easily removed for repair or replacement.
