Why a Mid-Drive Motor and not a Hub Motor?
Using a mid-mounted motor in Project BMX goes far beyond maintaining aesthetics. These kinds of motors offer substantial benefits over hub drive systems found on other commuter/urban e-bikes.
The mid-drive allows for optimal weight distribution for handling, a smoother and more natural pedal assist feeling, and eliminates the drawbacks of adding rotational mass to the rear wheel. They are also quieter, and being connected directly to the crank increases the motor’s efficiency to make the most of the bike’s range.
What is the difference between the 250W and 500W Project BMX?
The 500W has a higher power rating allowing the motor to provide more torque, which will result in faster acceleration and better performance. It comes standard with a throttle, and no speed limit, intended for use on private property*.
The 250W is road-compliant with local road rules. This model uses the same motor rated to 750W but uses a 250W firmware which decreases power and torque. It is pedal assist-only (no throttle), and has a 25kph speed limit. Users may choose to add a throttle, which will allow acceleration up to 36kph but no longer be compliant.
