Ebike Controller Modification
The ebike controller is actually the ‘mind’ of an electrical bike, connecting collectively all the electrical parts i.e. the LCD show, battery, motor, and all of the sensors and switches which maintain your Aventon ebike operating easily. So as to change how the throttle and pedal help features work we’ve upgraded the ebike controller.
In contrast to most of our opponents, we personal the manufacturing strategy of our ebikes, versus outsourcing it. This enables us to make tweaks to our merchandise rapidly and effectively, which means we will extra swiftly reply to the wishes of our clients by making enhancements on our ebikes with out having to undergo a intermediary.
That being stated, listed below are the small print of the 2 modifications we’ve got made to our ebike controllers on the request of a lot of our clients:
1. Modifications To The Throttle Operate
As you most likely know, the throttle operate on an ebike permits you to get off the road at velocity, so that you don’t must pedal furiously to attain a better velocity in a brief period of time. Right here at Aventon, we in-built a security characteristic which dictated that you just wanted to pedal a minimum of 1 / 4 rotation to activate the throttle. This stopped anybody from by chance activating the throttle while, let’s say, strolling their ebike, and having it run off on them.
Whereas this security characteristic is one thing we stood by, it has change into clear to us by the quantity of suggestions we’ve obtained from you, our clients, that whereas this characteristic is appreciated, it prevents individuals from utilizing the throttle in among the methods they’d wish to; as an illustration, the necessity for some help whereas beginning on a steep hill since that quarter rotation could show to be too tough on such a steep incline or forgetting to gear down when hitting steady cease indicators.
To reply your suggestions, we’ve got eliminated the regulation to pedal 1 / 4 rotation to activate the throttle, permitting you to make use of the throttle from a useless cease. Sure, you heard appropriately, by well-liked demand, you’ll now have throttle on demand.
Nevertheless, we nonetheless strongly advocate that you just pedal first and activate the throttle second.
Pedaling earlier than you hit the throttle permits you to achieve some momentum and be in movement and correctly balanced in your ebike earlier than the throttle kicks in. Doing it will make sure that you’re totally ready for the increase you obtain.
As beforehand talked about, this transformation brings forth the chance that you could be by chance hit the throttle swap in some unspecified time in the future. What is going to occur if you happen to do? Your ebike will speed up, whether or not you’re sitting or standing subsequent to it, and can proceed accelerating till the throttle swap is launched. If it so occurs that the ebike escapes out of your grip and “runs away” it can cease accelerating however will maintain rolling till it’s in some way stopped. For this reason we need to warning everybody to watch out with the throttle swap.
2. Modifications to Pedal Help Ranges 1 and a couple of – Smoother Acceleration
One other piece of suggestions we’ve obtained from a lot of our loyal clients is that when they’re utilizing ranges 1 and a couple of of the pedal help operate they really feel somewhat jolt of velocity when it kicks in; much like how the throttle may really feel.
The pedal help features are there to help the rider and to make pedaling a lot simpler and extra gratifying. Versus the throttle which lets you simply zip round on battery energy, this operate ought to present a clean journey for all.
Many purchasers have despatched us their suggestions on the pedal help performance with many noting that they really feel a small jolt when each pedal help ranges 1 and a couple of kick in. This, we determined, wanted to be mounted.
Consequently we’ve got diminished the depth of acceleration charges for each ranges 1 and a couple of of pedal help. This modification will present riders with a clean transition into each these ranges of pedal help, permitting for a a lot smoother and extra comfy driving expertise for everybody!
