The H7 is not the cheapest e-bike in the world. We know it. But it is still a bargain considering its premium parts and performance. Besides its carbon fiber frame & handlebars, another factor that adds to its performance (as well as cost) is the mid-drive motor.
Why are mid-drive motors more expensive than their rear hub counterparts? First of all, the mid-drive motor requires a special frame that accommodates the entire motor block, whereas the rear hub motor can be fitted to most standard frames
Also, the mid-drive motor has a more complex design and uses more advanced technology than the rear hub motor, which makes it more costly to produce
Most importantly, the mid-drive motor offers better performance, efficiency, and riding experience than the rear hub motor, which makes it more desirable and valuable for riders
What doesa 500W mid-drive motor mean?
- You get much more torque (130NM) when starting your bike or climbing steep hills (130NM equals 1500w hub motor
- High power efficiency, with the same battery, provides a longer range, 10-20% better than the same powered hub motor.
- Low central gravity and no extra weight added on wheels, best handling experiences
- Highly integrated, compact, sleek-looking, and quiet.
