Product Description

The Thorpe E-Road allows you to reconsider your expectations from a bike and re-evaluate your own ability, by enabling you to ride further and faster on epic hilly routes or with faster group rides that you never thought would be possible.

Our idea of the perfect Road E-bike is one which produces a ride that feels as near to a normal ride experience as possible with zero to minimal compromise. The Fazua Evation system is one of the quietest, lightest and most compact systems on the market. The combined weight of motor, battery, and gearbox is only 4.6kg distributed across the lower, central area of the bike with perfect integration into the frame.

The 4 power levels offer up to 400W of assistance, combined with 2 chainrings for a wider gear range, giving you the turbo boost you are looking for on the climbs. Once over the top of the climb and on the descent or sprinting accelerating over 15mph the drive unit and freewheel disengage seamlessly maintaining the comfort, steering, and confidence expected from a carbon, endurance road bike.

The handling is further supported with a lower centre of gravity, optimal frame stack and reach, clearance for tyres up to 32mm and 12mm thru axles front and rear for fast responsivity.

Powered by Fauza.
FAZUA evation drive system has a special clutch that separates the motor and bottom bracket whenever you ride faster than 25 km/h. The rider pedals without feeling any resistance from the motor, using only his muscle power. With the FAZUA evation drive system, sportive riders solely gain support when they need it the most. So whenever starting or when facing uphill passages or headwinds, the system smoothly supports the rider.

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

Electric Road Bike Guide

 

Electric Road Bike Guide

Is an Electric Road Bike Right for Me?

If you are new to the world of cycling and ebikes, our electric bike buyers guide will give you a good overview of the different types of e bikes. This will help you decide if an electric road bike is right for you.

The best electric bikes for road cycling combine a powerful motor with good road bike platform. When choosing a road e bike, there are a few things that can help you decide which performance characteristics you can expect from a particular model.


How do E Bikes Work?

All our ebikes are pedal assist models. This means that the electric motor adds to your natural pedalling power, making it easier to ride. The effect is seamless, and you will feel the extra boost from the first pedal stroke. The harder you pedal the more the power the motor gives you. When you stop pedalling the motor stops too.

You can vary the amount of power that the drive unit delivers when you pedal. All you need to do is select one of the different power modes using the display unit or power button. Some e bikes allow you to customize these modes through a smart phone app that connects to the bike through Bluetooth.

By law all pedal assist ebike are limited to only offer assistance up to 15.5mph. This means that you can ride an ebike everywhere that you can ride a regular bike. You can of course ride faster, but you will have to rely solely on your own natural pedalling power at speeds over 15.5mph.


Are the motors different?

There are two basic types of motor found on electric road bikes; crank drive and hub drive.

The Orbea Gain has a hub motor with a discreet battery in the downtube

Hub drive motors

Hub drive motors sit inside the wheel hub. These motors are lighter weight than crank drive units but are less powerful, and the power is applied more subtly. You still get enough power to climb the hills and accelerate from a standing start easily, and once up to speed these bikes are easier to pedal. Because they produce less power, hub drive ebikes tend to have smaller battery packs that can be hidden in the frame more easily.

Crank drive motors

Crank drives use a more powerful motor that sits in the bottom bracket area of the bike. The power is added directly to the drivetrain through the cranks. The added power is much more noticeable on a crank drive bike and you will be able to power up the climbs like a Pro athlete. Of course, you can always turn down the amount of power that the motor delivers. This means that you can extend the range and take advantage of the larger battery packs that these bikes are equipped with. Specialist road bike crank drive motors like the Specialized Turbo SL are designed to offer just the right amount of power. These are smaller and lighter than crank drives that are designed for multiple platforms.


Batteries

Most e bikes use a lithium Ion battery pack. These hold plenty of charge, offer long lasting performance and are quick to charge. The capacity of the battery varies depending on the model. Battery capacity starts at 250Wh for hub drive bikes and goes up to 500Wh or more on high-end crank drive bikes. The batteries can usually be charged both on and off the bike. A 500Wh battery pack will usually take about 4 hours to fully charge.

Display and Connectivity

All ebikes have some type of display that allows you to swap between the different power modes. On some bikes the display is minimal with LED lights to show the remaining battery capacity and power modes. Others have screen that show additional ride data as well. The very best displays act like a high-end cycling computer.

As well as the display unit many ebikes can also connect to a compatible smartphone app via Bluetooth. This opens up other options which may include GPS route planning and fine tuning of the power modes.


Which type of electric road bike is best for me?

Compared to mountain bikes road bikes have high cruising speeds. This means that the 15mph power assist limit needs more consideration with road e bikes. While a very powerful motor is great for getting up to speed and flying up the climbs you may find that the extra weight of a big motor and battery pack hold you back on the flat.

Hub drive road e bikes and lightweight crank drives like the Specialized Turbo SL are the best choice if you want the bike to feel similar to a regular road bike once you exceed the 15mph limit. These motors won’t get you up the climbs quite as fast as on a more powerful e bike, so if superfast climbing is your goal an e road bike with a more powerful crank drive motor might be best for you.
