What makes e-bikes special is their Pedal Assist System (PAS). Contrary to the belief that e-bikes do not allow movement, the reality is that PAS allows cyclists to pedal in a more comfortable and efficient manner.

The bike can be ridden entirely by pedaling, using the motor only, or a combination of both (PAS). In PAS mode, the bike's computer detects pedaling and activates the motor to assist and power the ride. 

If you've ever ridden a bike, you'll feel that an electric bike in pedal assist mode doesn't require as much pedaling force, you can feel the quicker starting energy, and you can feel the torque force more easily.

The pedal mode of an electric bicycle will be easier to use than the pedal mode of a bicycle, because it has the blessing of a motor, so there is also an adjustable pedal mode. Therefore, you can pedal at different speeds according to your needs in different scenarios. For example, when you are tired, you can use electric assistance to help you reach your destination easily; if you want to use an electric bicycle for exercise, then the low gear mode can help you consume energy better.

Pedal-assisted e-bikes use a cadence sensor built into the bike's drivetrain. When you step on the pedal, the sensor will receive the movement of the pedal, and then send a signal to the motor to provide you with different assistance forces according to the pedal level you choose, helping you to pedal better and faster, thus realizing pedal assistance. 

What Does Pedal Assist Do?

  1. Convert your pedaling effort to extend your e-bike mileage. Riding with pedal assist mode typically consumes less power, and has a more durable battery to go farther.

  2. To help you get involved in the ride. The pedal assist mode can help you feel the driving route better, and it also helps you stabilize and balance, ensuring stability for your riding.

  3. If you want to exercise with pedal assist system, then the PAS is necessary. It can be customized for a personalized pace based on your physical fitness and how often you exercise. If you're just starting with an exercise plan, you can turn on a higher level of assist mode to help you get used to the frequency of pedal mode first. As your workout program progresses, you can adjust lower levels and ride longer distances, which will burn more energy from your body. Compared to other forms of exercise, exercising on an e-bike is also more joint-friendly.

  4. Pedal assistance can also help people with mobility limitations, providing higher auxiliary energy to achieve the purpose of cycling, and a moderate amount of pedaling exercise can also help maintain the basic exercise to keep a healthier lifestyle.

  5. Pedal electric bicycles are also very suitable for commuting, because it is easy and effortless, and can help commuters reach the office faster and easier, which is a more convenient and greener mode of transportation than public transportation. If they choose to ride a normal bicycle, they may arrive at the office sweaty. If they choose public transportation, they will encounter crowds in the morning rush hour. Therefore, choosing an electric assist bike is no different than a good choice.
