If you ever wondered whether or not you can de-restrict your electric bike to go faster than the usual 25km/h speed limit and use it off-road, oh boy you’re in for a treat! The ever so popular Elysium Relay now comes in a new power boosted version allowing you cruise at 32km/h with its superior 500W motor.
The UK/EU regulations dictate that an e-bike must not exceed the rated power of 250W to be road-legal. Which is not great news for the thrill-seekers, power hungry among us who want to have the occasional fun off-road yet still be able to ride sensibly and legally on-road. A purchase of the common high powered electric bike will come with its legal implications. On the other hand, the practicality of a road-legal e-bike means giving up the fun one could have off-road. So which do you choose?
As a combined effort with CycloTriciy (one of the UK's most prominent manufacturer of various electric bike systems) we have set out to resolve this dilemma for good! We have developed a unique system that allows the user to swap between two modes depending on whether you are on-road or off-road, allowing you to unlock the full power where it is safe and legal to do so.
Please note that this is not the same as a de-restriction switch which has been questionable from a legal standpoint.
The Elysium Relay 500W is made for you who primarily intend on using the bike on-road, but looking to add the extra power for some occasional off-road riding.
Also comes with a high capacity 15Ah battery that can take you up to 45 miles on one single charge given optimum riding conditions.
