Heavyweight vs Flyweight | The Effect Of Rider Weight On E-Bike Range

Published on October 2nd 2018


Everyone wants to get the most amount of power from their E-Bike battery, and one of the largest factors that affects battery power is weight. Does a lighter rider actually get much more power and therefore distance from one charge? Jess is 32 kilograms lighter than Steve so on identical setups how much farther could Jess travel on one battery than Steve? We set them the challenge of finding out. Subscribe: http://embn.me/subscribenow Our shop: http://embn.me/bq The two bikes are identical apart from size, both brand new and fully charged. We even made sure that Steve and Jess used the same tyre pressure, and constantly rode at the same cadence and gear in turbo mode. How far could Steve keep up with Jess?
