Lektro Peak 24 Gear 36 V E-Mountain Bike
Lectro Peak E-Mountain bike is one of a new range of electric bikes manufactured by Hero Eco the worlds largest bike manufacturer in India. Using their undoubted economies of scale they have produced this impressive hardtail mountain bike with a very reasonable retail price of £1199. The bike is finished in a striking black/orange/blue paint system with twin Tektro disc brakes, Shimano Acera derailleur with 24 gears and Kenda 27.5″ X 2.5″ MTB tyres. On the electric side,the 250W motor is supplied by the leading manufacturer Bafang (8 Fun), with 5 power settings selected by an LED handlebar display and powered by a 36V X 8.8Ah lithium Ion battery.
The bike rides well and the motor is willing and responsive. Power is switched on when pedalling with a 12 magnet sensor, so that there is virtually no delay. The 2.5″ MTB tyres give good road holding and performance over dirt tracks. Speed under power is limited to 15.5mph, so the bike is fully road legal, but an energetic rider will have no trouble in exceeding this speed when assisted by the 24 gear selection. The brushless motor provides virtually no resistance when the motor is idling as the bike is either freewheeling or travelling over 15.5mph.
