Batribike Ten Crank Drive crossbar and step-through.
The Batribike TEN crank drive crossbar and stepthrough electric bikes mark a new departure for Batribike. After 10 years of marketing rear hub drive bikes they have launched their first crank drive bike both in crossbar and step-through frame versions
With a conventional 52cm. (20.5″) crossbar frame and suspension seatpost this is a bike for the taller rider, while the step-through is 45cm (17.5″).
Unlike most other crank drive bikes on the market, the TEN utilises a rotation sensor within the motor rather than a torque sensor. This means that if the rider selects maximum power, the motor will deliver maximum power without the rider applying much pressure on the pedals. Further on the left hand hand grip , there is a twist throttle which will give 4mph without pedalling, When the pedals are being turned the throttle will override the pedal assist and deliver full power up to 15.5mph (25kph) for EU law.
The rider dispay is a central mounted clear LCD display showing battery state, 5 pedalassist modes,odomenter asnd trip distance. This is operated by a left hand series of buttons that also operate the lights. The Battery is secreted in the frame and is fitted from the underside. It can be lifted out for charging.
Both bikes are well specified with Shimano hydraulic disc brakes -front and rear, Shimano Deore 9speed derailleur gears, and Shimano Altus gear shifters, while Suntour NEX suspension forks improve the quality of the ride over rougher roads.
The lights are powered by the main battery and have a steady beam or flashing option.
The specifications are almost identical, the main difference being the minimum saddle height-97cm crossbar and 91cm step-through and minimum crossbar height 78cm crossbar and 48cm stepthrough.
