Pedelecs in the recent years have developed into bicycle category of its own. In terms of technology by their increasingly powerful electric motors that smoothly add to your pedalling force up to 25kph and adapt that support even more exactly to the rider’s needs, as well as in terms of design with new frame shapes and functions.
The frames of STEVENS pedelecs, meticulously shaped by load-specific hydroforming, not only nicely integrate the motor. They can also handle any forces thrown at them by acceleration, braking and hard pedalling.
Ride stability is further enhanced in all STEVENS PowerTube Pedelecs by using tapered steerer forks (diameter increases towards the lower end of the shaft). Another feature of STEVENS pedelecs are reliable and powerful hydraulic disc brakes, well-matched shifting components and bright LED lights.
To enhance ride stability even more, for current model year 2018 Bosch eBike Systems suggests integrating the battery into the downtube. To do so, STEVENS’ supplier has developed the PowerTube battery, which is compatible to all ebike motors from Bosch and fulfils all the manufacturer’s requirements in quality, ride characteristics and ease of operation. In addition, riders of STEVENS pedelecs will benefit from the qualified service offered by STEVENS dealers and proven by many tests in several magazines.
The new battery, like all previous Bosch PowerPacks, offers 500 Watt-hours (Wh) of capacity and is conveniently compact with its dimension of 349 x 84 x 65 mm – so small in fact, that a second back-up battery easily fits inside your panniers or backpack. At 2.8 kg (6.2 lbs) it is also one of the lightest batteries on the market.
