UPRIGHT SEATING POSITION
The upright seating position allows you to ride comfortably for long distances as it reduces back strain and places more weight and pressure on the hips and legs. The ergonomically designed seating position allows for added visibility so you can see more of what is happening around you, keeping you safe and alert for the unexpected.

E-bikes are especially capturing the older market, many of whom have found that e-bikes enable them to ride much later in life than they previously imagined. That’s because the extra push from the motor makes pedaling far less strenuous than traditional bikes. Current sales records from the major e-bike manufactures have found that 82% of its customer base falls between the ages of 45 and 84!
• What does Pedal Assist mean?
Pedal assist is a mode that provides power only when you are pedaling. The pedal assist mode is also nice because you can focus purely on your pedaling and you don't have to hold the throttle in a certain position.
How Far Can E- Bikes Go?
The general range estimate for an electric bike varies from 20-100 miles on a single charge. Yes, it’s really wide! That’s because there are so many factors that determine your range—some you can control, some you can’t. Those you can include the size of your battery, the efficiency of your motor, the level of motor assist you select, and how much weight you’re carrying. Those you can’t include wind, weather, temperature, and terrain.
E-Bikes and Florida Laws
Florida e-cyclists don’t have to have a special license or registration, or obtain specific insurance on their e-bike.
Florida is one of four states (Delaware, Iowa, and Nebraska) that define electric bicycles within the broader definition of “bicycle”. Florida Statute 316.003(4) defines BICYCLE as generally a two-wheeled vehicle propelled “solely by human power” or “by a combination of human power and electric helper motor” up to a speed of “not more than 20 miles per hour on level ground…”.
Who may ride an e-bike in Florida?
In Florida, children under age 16 may not drive or ride an e-bike, called an “electric helper motor” bicycle.
Do you have to use a bicycle helmet when riding an e-bike?
E-cyclists (by definition over the age of 16) are not required to wear a helmet.
Where is it legal to ride an e-bike in Florida?
By state law, electric bikes may be operated in the exact same locations as regular bicycles. Electric bikes are allowed on “any road, path or way that is open to bicycle travel.” This means they can be ridden on roads (except limited access highways), bike lanes, bike paths, multi-use paths, and sidewalks.

E- Bikes vs Pedal Bikes Workout
Pedal-assist electric bikes can provide essentially the same intensity of a workout as conventional analog bikes, according to a new study by public health professors at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.
On a 6-mile test loop, riders of electric mountain bikes and regular mountain bikes both reached the upper half of the vigorous intensity zone for target heart rate, the researchers found. (Per CDC guidelines, the researchers categorized “vigorous intensity zone” as 70 to 85 percent of each test subject’s estimated maximum heart rate, calculated by subtracting the subject’s age from 220.)
The study also found that participants on the ebikes didn’t feel like their riding was physically taxing even though they exercised at almost the same physical intensity as their counterparts on non-electric bikes—the average heart rate on an eMTB was 94 percent of the average heart rate on a conventional mountain bike.
