1000w Hub Motor Kit

From: $1,720.00 $1,530.00

The REVolt 1000w hub motor kit is a powerful work-horse, made tough to assist the laziest of riders. This direct-drive motor features regen braking, and as such does not totally freewheel, making it less like a bicycle than most of our other kits. It can however move at almost 50km/h on the flat, and will carry you up almost any hill with virtually no effort!

Our over-powered hub motor kits come in all common wheel sizes, to replace the rear wheel only, unless by special order.  The system allows you to choose between 5 different levels of automatic pedelec assistance. These levels are easily adjustable from the LCD screen on the handlebars.

Choose from our range of versatile and practical matched 48v batteries, either frame-mounting which is designed for balanced comfort due to their central and low mounting position, or rack style as better for step-through bikes.

ONLY 29″ wheels in stock for this clearance sale!



1000w Hub Motor Kit with Frame-Mounting Battery

This larger direct-drive motor is a durable option for those carrying heavy loads, or perhaps setting up a temporary replacement to a car. It really will take YOU for the ride, with minimal input required. You can of course still pedal, as much or as little as you want to.

All our wheels are built using durable double-wall rims and thicker 12G spokes, to withstand the extra weight and torque of the motor. A spline mount is attached to fit your 7-10 speed cassette. The motor casing also includes holes to attach a disc brake rotor, if you bike has discs. All common wheel sizes are available to choose from, and there is a plug near the wheel for simple removal.

This quality motorised wheel is matched with a compact 25amp controller, the brains of the system, positioned between the battery and the motor. All cables come to this hub, and are designed to be appropriate lengths for the average bike. A bad is included for mounting this is various positions.

The controls included for engaging the motor are the pedelec sensor (mounted to the bottom bracket), and the optional-to-install throttle (thumb style as standard, or twist style available on request).

Throttles are popular amongst people who really need the assistance taking-off, before they have rotated the pedals enough for the pedelec to kick in, and also for an extra squirt of power when in lower pedelec levels.

Also included are electronic cut-out brake levers, or magnetic cutout sensors which can be fitted to existing levers, to provide a safety cutout feature when braking.

The LCD3 handlebar dashboard display allows you to adjust the strength of pedelec assistance (level 1 is about 200w, level 2 around 400w, etc). The display has a backlight, and it displays useful information such as battery level and voltage, wheel speed, power usage, distance travelled, and a few other handy stats.

The package is completed with a quality frame mounted battery or rack battery, and there are a few different options available based on the distances you want to travel per charge. Mounting to the water bottle lugs in the triangle is ideal, as it’s good to keep the battery weight low and central, to make for a more comfortable and balanced ride. Or if your bike doesn’t lend itself to this, then choose the Rack battery option, which also can accommodate a handy rack-top bag.

We only use the top-quality battery chemistry of Lithium tri-metal (Nickel Manganese Cobalt Oxide, or NMC), which is the leading type used for electric vehicles at the moment. Read more on our batteries page. Also find links to sizing templates for the frame-mounting batteries, or you can order a Battery Template Kit by mail, so that you can confirm what fits, and order your ideal battery with complete confidence that it will suit your frame.

If you are planning to DIY your e-bike build, we have a range of helpful videos to assist you, and we’ll also provide a straightforward installation manual with your kit. Or, you might like to attend one of our Training Courses, designed to help you fit your own kit, while learning the ins and outs of e-bike systems more broadly.
