500w Power Ranger Kit

This is our most popular kit at the moment, due to the combination of torque and speed, matched with high-quality components and well positioned battery, and all the parts included to set the bike up exactly as you want it (with pedelec, thumb or twist throttle, cruise control, brake levers, and/or LCD display).

This kit is sold as an 'off-road kit', due to having 500w of POWER (higher than the road-legal limit for e-bikes currently in Australia).  The motor is only slightly larger than its 250w cousin, and is still geared (1:5 ratio) and totally freewheeling, without any of the magnetic resistance felt in Direct Drive motors.

The in-frame battery is packed with 48v punch, giving greater torque on the hills, and higher top speed (about 38km/h).  The lockable mounting bracket is designed to attach simply to the water-bottle lugs.  The central and low position gives your bike good balance.  The Lithium tri-metal chemistry is long-lasting and lightweight, giving a good lifespan to your rev-bike.

This motor comes in a rear wheel only, and accomodates a cassette (up to 10 speed) on the freehub, as pictured below.  Most bikes come with these cassettes now (definitely will do if your rear wheel is quick release).  You will need a cassette removal tool and a chain whip to get your cassette off in order to fit it to the motorised wheel..  Or a bike shop will do it in 10 seconds if required.

The stylish black motor (geared with 1:5 ratio planetary gear system) comes mounted in a double walled 36-hole Alex rim with 12G stainless spokes, in a rear wheel.  There are holes to attach disc brakes, and the electrical cable out has a plug nearby the axle, to allow easy disconnection when removing the wheel.

This quality motorised wheel is matched with a compact 17amp waterproof controller, which runs all the standard controls, and can also connect lights to the main battery.  All connections are rated IP54 waterproof, and included is a multi-location bag for mounting the controller onto your bike.

If you want to run the 5 level pedelec system (automatic assistance when you are pedalling), all you need to do is connect the pedelec sensor device to the crank arm (let us know if you need a Crank Extractor Tool), and clamp the LCD Dashboard onto the handlebars.  This Dashboard allows you to adjust the strength of pedelec assistance from Economy mode to Power mode, or turn assistance off.  It also shows battery level, speed, and a few other handy stats.

There is a single cable from the controller to the handlebar controls, which include the LCD Dashboard, and also the optional-to-install throttles (thumb style, or twist with cruise control button), and electronic cut-out brake levers.  A handy bracket is included for you to attach the cable hub to the headstem if desired.

The package is completed by a long-life Lithium tri-metal (NMC) battery, designed to mount to the water-bottle lugs on most mens bikes and some womens bikes.  It's good to keep battery weight low and central if possible, to make for a more comfortable ride.  You can see a template for the dimensions of this battery below.  If you don't have the screw holes required, or they are in the wrong position for some reason, a bike shop can drill these in for you, using a Rivnut tool or similar.

This chemistry of Lithium battery is the leading used for electric vehicles at the moment, due in part to the life span (up to 2000 charge cycles), and also the favourable energy density, meaning you can get more range per kilogram of weight carried.

This 48v battery is 11.6ah in capacity, meaning it should take you about 25kms if using the throttle on undulating terrain, or double that if using pedelec on fairly flat terrain with few stop-starts.
