New to commuting – which S-Pedelec is right for me?

06.10.2020

 

We are currently experiencing a new stage of evolution in mobility: While the car was the undisputed star of individual transportation over the past decades, its status is beginning to crumble. The average speed of an automobile is falling rapidly due to construction sites, traffic jams, closures and red lights. Using a car is also becoming increasingly expensive thanks to fees for parking and congestion charges. It therefore comes as no surprise that it is not only considerably less expensive to travel in many cities by bike, but also faster. And yet the amount of traffic volume made up by bicycles remains relatively small. There are any number of alleged reasons why it is not possible to ride a bike to work. The route: too long and too mountainous. The weather: too bad. The legs: too heavy. The night: too short.

Studies show that the cure for all these excuses – and one’s inner couch potato – is a bicycle with electrical assistance. Owners of so-called Pedelecs use them up to 60 % more frequently than a bicycle without an electric drive. Individually transforming your mobility habits is even easier with a Speed Pedelec, which offers assistance up to 45 km/h. These allow larger distances to be traveled quickly, efficiently and without working up a sweat. Anyone who dares to take the plunge and at least occasionally chooses the S-Pedelec over the car generally gets hooked pretty quickly. Fresh air and exercise, before and after work, don’t only put you in a good mood and improve your ability to concentrate, they can also help to prevent illnesses. Frustration in a traffic jam or fun on your bike? The question pretty much answers itself.

For over 10 years, Stromer has been developing Speed Pedelecs with character in Oberwangen bei Bern with its main focus on power, range, design and connectivity. One feature that all Stromer models have in common is the rear-wheel motor, which provides assistance up to 45 km/h. The bundled drive power is transmitted directly to the hub here, without detours over crank, sprockets and chain.

You are thinking about purchasing a fast e-bike and turning your daily commute into “quality time” but aren’t sure which model is right for you? A comparison of our various models can help you in making this decision:
