Arriving faster with the S-Pedelec

If you want to commute in an environmentally conscious way and do something for your health at the same time, there’s no getting around a commuter bike. And if you want to cover more kilometers faster and still arrive relaxed, opt for an S-pedelec. We explain why more and more manufacturers are relying on the combination of Pinion transmission and rear motor for this application and provide an overview of current models of reliable commuter bikes!

Arriving faster with the S-Pedelec

S-Pedelecs are picking up speed!

Even though the legal situation in Germany for the use of S-pedelecs is still a bit fuzzy, at least at the moment, more and more long-distance commuters are switching to the 45 km/h bikes. In countries such as the Netherlands, Belgium and Switzerland, for example, S-pedelecs have long been in the fast lane, and for good reason: Compared to a “normal” e-bike, which supports up to 25 km/h, the realistic average speed of a speed-pedelec is between 30-35 km/h. Over a distance of 20 km, the time saved is between 10-15 minutes. This is considerable and is clearly noticeable in everyday life!

Speed pedelecs are therefore often used as an alternative to the car. And anyone who uses their bike intensively day-by-day wants reliability, low wear and, above all, minimal maintenance – as is usually the case with cars. Here, the Pinion central gearbox is convincing compared to other systems, especially in pedelecs and S-pedelecs. Therefore, more and more manufacturers offer the fast extra class with Pinion gearbox in combination with partly self-developed engines and batteries (eg Klever Mobility and Coleen).

In the following we give an overview of currently available S-pedelecs of the manufacturers Klever Mobility, Aska, Coleen and Kettler.

 


Klever X-Speed Pinion

Klever Mobility, a subsidiary of the KYMCO Group, specializes in urban and high-performance e-bikes and this expertise has been incorporated into the development of the X series. Thus, the manufacturer now offers two Pinion models. The X-Speed Pinion (pictured above) comes with Pinion 12-speed gears, Gates belt drive and Klever’s own 600-watt Biactron rear motor. A long range is provided here by an 850 Wh battery. Available immediately.

With the X Alpha 45 model (pictured above), Klever is making a statement in the growing market of the 45 km/h class. Here, for the first time, an 800-watt motor is used, combined with the C1.12 Pinion transmission and Gates belt. The 1,200 Wh battery provides even more range. The manufacturer specifies a range of about 70 km at maximum support level here. Also new: the integrated turnsignal and the color display. Available from August 2021.

Coleen Modern DB

The S-pedelec Modern DB of the French brand Coleen attracts attention, because the designers dispense entirely with a down tube. The frame and fork are made of carbon and are handmade in France. As we know, these are the only carbon fibre eBikes on the market with an integrated Pinion gearbox. The manufacturer Coleen grants a 10-year warranty on the frame. The Modern DB model has a 750 W rear hub motor with a torque of 43 Nm. The battery is a 48 V unit with 522 Wh, which brings the bike up to 45 km/h within a few seconds. Who would have thought it? By the way, the battery sits in the top tube! The Modern DB is equipped with the C1.6 transmission as standard, the manufacturer also offers the upgrade to 9 gears as an option! Available immediately.

Aska Super Commuter

 

The young start-up Aska from Belgium recently presented their premiere product. They call the model a Super Commuter All-Round Adventurer. That sums up everything about its range of use! Aska addresses with the S-pedelec all those who like to move away from the main roads and more in nature – so it is built for adventurous commuters!  The full-suspension frame is made of aluminum, brakes, wheels and Pinion transmission are robust and durable and of course the model is equipped with high-quality lighting to ensure safe riding in urban traffic. Top: The frame and all other parts on the bike are “Made in Europe”. Available from October 2021.

Kettler Velossi 2.0

The ” Velossi 2.0″ from Kettler is a top-class S-pedelec. For fast and efficient shifting, it comes with “C1.9XR” Pinion gears in combination and thus nine gears and a gear ratio range of 568%. The low-maintenance drivetrain is completed with Gates Carbon drive and the powerful “Z20” motor from Neodrives. The bike is available in both women’s and men’s geometry and even convinced soccer world champion Bastian Schweinsteiger…
Available immediately in women’s and men’s geometry and the colors black and white.

A powerful drive unit

Due to its design, the Pinion gearbox is also positioned centrally on the bottom bracket of an e-bike. The rider therefore first directs his power to the gearshift. This is reinforced by the rear motor in the second step. Thanks to this sequence, significantly lower forces act on the entire drivetrain compared to derailleur systems, resulting in a longer service life for components such as the chain or belt drive. As such, the transmission is wear-free; apart from an oil change every 10,000 km, it requires no further maintenance or care. This pays off for frequent riders in particular.
