Electric Bike Kits

Our E-BikeKit is a True "Complete Electric Bike Conversion Kit"

This complete electric bike conversion kit system with SLA e-bike battery pack offers both e-bike novices and experienced electric bike riders safety, power, convenience and reliability.

Complete E-Bike Kit Systems include the E-BikeKit Conversion Kit & E-BikeKit Battery

With the E-BikeKit you get absolutely everything you need out of the box to convert your own conventional bicycle into a quiet, efficient and economical hybrid electric bike.

Engineered to comply with USA Federal guidelines and requires no insurance or licensing in most states. If you are deciding whether to convert your existing bike or to buy a complete electric bike you should know that bikes converted with the E-BikeKit Complete Conversion System are comparable to complete electric bikes costing more than $2500.

The E-BikeKit electric bike conversion kit system will work with any 36v or 48v e-bike battery pack.
Please be aware that at 48 volts the system is capable of speeds (30MPH top speed with a 26” wheel) which exceed Federal EBike Laws and your bike may become classified as a “motor vehicle”. At 36 volts the E-Bike Conversion Kit is within the speed limitation guidelines (20MPH unassisted on flats with 150 pound rider) established by the U.S. Federal Electric Bike Law, and in most states, no license, registration or insurance is required.

Your hub motor wheel has been hand-built by a professional wheel builder with experience building wheels with hub motors for electric bike conversion kits.

The two types of hub motors offered by E-BikeKit are "geared"(using internal nylon gears) and "direct-drive"(using two sets of rare-earth magnets) motors.

Each motor has unique properties that may be more suitable for you. Choosing the best option for you will depend on your riding style.

Freewheel

Zero drag when battery is not engaged.
Spins just like a regular bike wheel.

Slight drag when battery is not engaged.
Rare-earth magnets have minor resistance.

Each motor has unique properties that may be more suitable for you. Choosing the best option for you will depend on your riding style.

350w Internally Geared Motor

Advantages vs. Direct-Drive:

Lighter Weight (7 pounds vs. 14 pounds)
Smaller (134mm diameter vs. 244mm diameter)
Zero Drag (complete freewheel when not using battery)
Excellent Efficiency (15-25% more range)

Disadvantages vs. Direct-Drive:

Lower Top Speed 36v (17.5 MPH) / 48v (24 MPH)
Less Power (350w vs. 500w = 40% hill-climbing power)
Moderate Life span (internally geared parts wear down. 2+yrs expected)
*Internal gears are replaceable by E-BikeKit

500w Direct-Drive Motor

Advantages vs. Geared:

High Top Speed 36v (20 MPH) / 48v (28 MPH)
More Power (500w vs. 350w = 65% hill-climbing power)
Excellent Life span (brushless and no friction = "last forever" 5+yrs expected)

Disadvantages vs. Geared:

Heavier Weight (14 pounds vs. 7 pounds)
Larger (244mm diameter vs. 134mm diameter)
Slight Magnetic Drag (slight resistance when not using battery)
Moderate Efficiency (15-25% less range)

Practical Summary:

 

If you plan on pedaling more than using the battery and you want your bike to remain more of a conventional bicycle then the 350w geared motor is likely a better choice.

If you plan on using the battery more, desire a higher top speed and more power then the 500w direct-drive motor is for you.

Both motors are the exact same price and both are EASY to install.
