EPAC : Electric Power Assisted Cycle

There are many advantages to buying an Electric Power Assisted Cycle (EPAC) from AXcess Electric Bikes: it’s not solely about cycling without the hard work!

EPAC travel is fast: especially in cities. While cars can average a higher speed, traffic during rush hour generally prevents this from happening. With an EPAC, you can maintain higher average speeds than on a normal bicycle while still being granted access to cycle paths and cycle lanes, making your journey quicker.

If your journeys involve hills, then an EPAC will make lighter work of these than a standard bicycle. The electricity powering the bicycle will enable you to complete hills of a higher gradient than possible on a non-powered bike, with a greater average speed and less effort involved.

You’ll also find an EPAC safer than a normal bicycle, with the power assistance allowing you to accelerate faster from traffic lights and junctions, reducing your risk of collision.

An EPAC is far more fuel-efficient than other powered modes of transport too, ensuring that you’re doing your bit for the environment! Typical fuel consumption for an electric bike is just 8-16 watt-hours per mile, which is approximately one-tenth as much as a small motorcycle. While this is higher than a standard bicycle, of course, it’s far more energy-efficient – and therefore, more cost-effective – than purchasing a moped or motorbike, with running costs even coming out lower than taking the train or a bus.

If you decide to use a moped or motorbike as your preferred mode of transport, you will incur extra costs through your insurance, MOT and tax – and you’ll need to have a licence too. This is not the case with an EPAC, which the law classes as a bicycle. There is no need for tax, insurance, MOTs or a licence, meaning that use of an EPAC will not affect your driving licence as long as it is lawful.

Finally, if you’re looking for a mode of transport for commuting, an EPAC is, without a doubt, a great choice. Not only will you be able to take advantage of cycle paths and cycle lanes, but it’s a great way to travel to work while burning calories…but without the issue of turning up at your workplace looking sweaty and sticky. With a greater speed and a higher level of air flow than when using a standard bicycle, you’ll find that sweat evaporates instantly, saving you the need for a shower on arrival!

I bought my bike, the Axcess Eriskay the first week in Jan 2018. I was well looked after by Peter, I knew what I was buying as the previous year I had bought my wife an Axcess Camargue and so I didnt have a problem going back to the same shop to buy mine. Peter and his staff can not be any more helpful in my opinion. If you decide on a bike but want a few cosmetic changes, they are more than happy to oblige, my wife wanted different handlebars and a change of tyre type. Since buying my wifes bike I have also bought maps and pannier bags. I do not have a problem recommending this shop to anyone who requires an electric bike.
Axcess were the nearest specialist supplier of Ebikes, and there web page gave good descriptions. I visited their premises, tried out their folding models around the factory estate and on that basis chose a ELife folding bike as the one best suited to my needs. I have been pleased with the model I chose. - It is of robust construction with front fork suspension and it deals well with farm tracks and forest trails - it folds easily and fits in the back of the car - it shrinks distances compared with my old pedal bike - it has coped with all hills I have so far tried it on - I don't know what its range is (30 miles seems about right for gentle countryside). I had thought that battery capacity would be a limitation, but it is not. It is in fact saddle soreness.
I recently purchased the Axcess Electric Shetland folding bike which fits nicely In the back of my SUV without having to lower the rear seats. It’s an excellent bike and build .. easy to mount and dismount .. perfectly suitable for me as I am now in my mid fifties and appreciate a little assistance nowadays on longer journeys and Inclines , that said It’s a great bike for any adult whatever there age and as they say ... It has the power to get you there and back. I have previously owned two other electric cycles of another brand that were hard work to cycle when the power was off even on the flat. I’m pleased to say that this Is not an Issue with the Axcess Electric Bike that you can pedal with ease If and when the power Is not required ..
