Move into the fast lane of exhilarating road performance with Giant's Road-E
Accelerate on the open road and take the fast lane with this lively e-bike made for road riding. The Road-E delivers functional performance to help you extend your road adventures. Blending Giant’s world leading expertise in performance road bikes with its powerful Hybrid Cycling Technology results in an e-bike that’s powerful, efficient and fun to ride. With its purpose built geometry, excellent weight distribution and integrated power, it keeps you going strong on busy commutes and all sorts of road adventures. Featuring the SyncDrive Yamaha X94 central motor is compact, producing an astonishing 80Nm of torque which gives you an instant and even amount of power. Coupled with an ultra-reliable 500Wh Lithium Ion battery you get more range helping you go the extra mile. From standstill, you remain in complete control as the motor gives you full support and the higher torque gives you more power at lower speed as you pull away at junctions. It’s time to negotiate the streets with the ultimate commuter ride.
The heart of Quick-E, is Yamaha's SyncDrive motor which produces up to 80Nm of torque. The motor includes instant repsonse technology which will ensure you never feel like you're using your own strength to get things moving. The system's proportional power delivey system will also keep the power distribution smooth and even, leaving every power assisted ride feeling like a totally human powered one.
The PedalPlus 4-sensor technology keeps track of exactly how much force you are applying to the pedals at any given moment to ensure that any assistance the motor gives you feels natural. It's the torque sensor that gets things moving effectively. It recognises how much pressure you're putting on the pedals, so that the motor can deliver its seamless power boost. The speed sensor keeps track of how fast you're travelling, and the motor and pedal rotation sensors make sure the motor is running as smoothly, efficiently and as quietly as possible.
Giant's EnergyPak batteries have the highest energy density of any e-bikes in their category and they charge twice as the Taiwanese company's earlier battery systems. The batteries are integrated seamlessly into the frames of the Giant e-bike range, which helps stabalise the bicycle while also making the full e-bike range look like normal lithe lightweight bicycles. You'll be able to eek out a maximum range of 50 miles from Giant's 400Wh EnergyPak battery.
The RideControl interface is the control centre for all of your electricity assisted riding needs, and is Giant's answer to Bosch's Nyon interface system. Ergonomic controls, USB charging options for unlimited Garmin-ing or even some phone charging, and an intelligent walk assist mode - to help you when you're walking the potentially heavy bikes around - are all features of the RideControl kit. Equally you'll be able to monitor the battery levels of your system, and choose what level of peddal assistance you require.
There are three options: Eco, Normal, and Power. As you'd expect Eco is for moments when you don't need much power - when you're cruising through an urban area, or you want to travel a long distance on a ride. Normal's good for hills and undulating country roads, and Power will give you a boost if you're running against the clock, or there's a particularly steep mountain in your way.
