The Axcess Electric bike Shetland is a sturdy, robust and strong folding ebike.
The thumb throttle on the Axcess electric bike Shetland works up to 4mph, making it easy and safe to do a hill start or when pulling out into traffic. When pedalling you can use the throttle to override the mode of assistance you are in, as it will instantly give you full power upto15.5mph. The moment you stop pedalling while using the throttle, the bike will slow to 4mph.
The Shetland has the same power and drive as the full-sized bikes. It has been designed to maximize rider comfort. It is 2″ longer than similar-looking ebikes, with the forward curved handlebars giving a further 3″ of legroom.
The 17” step-through hand-welded frame is popular with both men and women, giving a comfortable riding position.
The upgraded handlebar display gives the rider a choice of five levels of electric power assistance. The pedal assist can be switched off, so you can ride like a normal bike but still have the option of the throttle for instant power. The six Shimano gears ensure the rider can assist the power when needed, either to climb a hill or to reduce the effort to prevent you perspiring.
The 250watt 02 series Bafang brushless rear hub motor (the maximum allowed for UK road) with a re-programmed smooth electronic controller will assist you up to 15.5mph. It is powered by a 36 volt 10Ah battery with a range of 25 -30 miles on the pedal assist. The optional16 Ah battery will give a range of 45 – 50 miles. Batteries can be charged on the bike or unlocked and removed.
Full-length mudguards and a full chainguard keep the rider clean. The handlebars are adjustable for height which combine with Zoom front suspension forks to give you a comfortable ride.
Double-wall alloy wheel rims and 20” X 2.15” Kenda road tyres give good grip on paths and tracks. The pedal assist rotor has been moved to the bottom bracket and cuts in almost immediately.
