MEET THE MOTORS
At Hazard's Cyclesport in Santa Barbara, CA, our Turbo e-bikes are built around the concept of “It's you, only faster.” So, no matter if you're a seasoned rider or just starting out, we customize our bikes and E-Bike Technology to the ride experience. This way, you get a seamless, authentic experience, just with a little extra oomph. And while there are a host of things that set the technology of our Turbos apart from the crowd, if you want to get up-close and personal with some of its truly differentiating hallmarks, it's time you met our motors.
They're the quietest, smoothest, and most powerful bottom bracket motors in the world. To achieve this, they utilize integrated belt drives that take the edge off the planetary gear, while built-in freewheels ensure an elimination of resistance when you're riding above the legal speed limit. But their compact, lightweight designs also benefit from a healthy dose of intelligence. We like to think of them as one part analog, two parts digital. True, there are a bevy of silent moving parts doing the heavy lifting (amplifying your input by up to 320%), but there's also complicated, custom software that senses the torque you're applying in each pedal stroke. This specially developed algorithm amplifies the power that you're putting in, or more simply: The more power that you apply, the more power our motors put out. It's not a one-trick-pony, though, as the algorithm also senses speed and cadence. And ultimately, this plays a huge part of the greater picture: Customization over the motor characteristics.
