Visually, our Cooper e-bikes can hardly be distinguished from a conventional bike. The barely visible drive system provides a lot of extra thrust with an unadulterated, natural driving experience. The Zehus Gen2 hides a complete e-bike drive system in the rear wheel hub. A powerful motor, a powerful battery with highly efficient battery management and smart connectivity combined in one system.
As a compact system, the Zehus rear-wheel drive includes all important electronic functions such as motor, battery, Bluetooth connectivity, sensors and battery management. The system is activated for the first time via the Bitride Connect app installed on the smartphone. Driving information is displayed here and driving mode settings can also be personalised. Once activated, the e-bike can also be used without the app if desired. From a speed of 8 km/h, simply pedal backwards three times and the motor is already activated and the preset support level is switched on
The Zehus Bitride Connect app is your intelligent control center.
Personalize your support mode, use electronic locking and get access to diagnostic and support information for your bike.
Once you have defined your favorite settings, you no longer need your smartphone. The next time you drive, the motor automatically remembers the last settings without having to turn on your smartphone every time.
You always want to have an overview of all functions and data? The dashboard in the Bitride app on your smartphone shows you all important ride information such as speed, distance, battery level and much more. to.
4 power modes
In addition to the support levels "Eco" and "Turbo" that have already been set, you have the option in Custom mode to individualize the support and thus adapt it to your personal driving style. Here you can set the intensity and duration of the support as well as the strength of the recuperation.
Already established in Formula 1 racing cars, the identical technology for braking energy recovery is used in Cooper e-bikes.
If required, the motor can recuperate during braking or when driving downhill and charges the battery. This creates a hybrid drive and extends the driving range.
How does it work exactly?
If you continuously pedal backwards while driving, the KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) is activated. The system brakes the bike a little while charging the battery to gain more range.
The engine brake is perfect for going downhill or for taxiing to traffic lights. Highly efficient and completely without wasting energy.
