Philosophy

Propella's mission is to bridge the gap between regular bikes and electric bikes (eBikes). We strive for simplicity, and our minimalist design allows us to achieve our goal by eliminating unnecessary features and focusing on essential elements.

 

Adding enormous battery capacity and power to an eBike can discourage riders from pedaling, reduce safety, and add excessive weight and cost. The right amount of power, however, can transform a bicycle into a lightweight, safe, and reliable electric vehicle.

How it works

 

A boost of power whenever you need it!

 

 

You can pedal this eBike just like a normal bicycle and use the electric assist (if desired)  in two simple ways:

 

 

1) Throttle: The motor will push you forward at anytime by pressing down on the throttle. The more you push down on the throttle the more help you get from the motor. Throttle option is usually most helpful for getting back in motion after a complete stop at a red light or stop-sign. It is also useful for a quick boost of power on short but steep hills.

2) Pedal-Assist (PASS): This function only works when you are pedaling. 5 levels of assist are available that can be selected from the LCD Display. As you start pedaling the motor will kick in, and when you stop pedaling the motor turns off.

Levels 1-2 are typically used for long but relatively flat commutes. Levels 3-5 are ideal for  steep and long hills. On a flat road, level 5 assist will move you at about 20 mph with almost no effort from the rider. At assist level 0, the eBike behaves like a normal "non-electric" bicycle. This is useful for maximum exercise and calorie burn.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How can I contact Propella?

Please contact us here on Indiegogo, or visit our website www.propellabikes.com 

 

- Do you ship internationally?

Currently we offer USA and CANADA shipping only. Upon successful completion of this campaign we look forward to offer international shipping (starting with EU). If you are interested in international shipping please sign up here and we will notify you as soon as possible.

-How much is shipping?

USA Shipping: $95

Canada Shipping: $185 (Batch 3 only) (Note: The buyer is responsible for all local tax/duty fees)

You may also pickup your eBike at our warehouse at no cost. We will contact you regarding the date/time and location of pickup.

- What is the rider height and weight limit for this eBike?

We recommend a maximum rider weight of 200 lbs for this eBike.

The stem and seat are adjustable to suit rider height of 5'-2" to 6'-2".

- Can the Propella eBike be used as a normal "non-electric" bicycle?

Yes. You have three options:

1) Turning off or removing the battery pack. 

2) Turning off the LCD Display. Neither throttle or Pedal-Assit (PASS) option work when LCD is off.

3) Setting your Pedal-Assit (PASS) level to zero 0. (The throttle is still functional)

- Can I charge the battery by pedaling?

No. Charging by pedaling (regenerative charging) is only possible with direct-drive motors. Direct-drive motors are much heavier and larger than geared-motors (used in Propella)  and consume much more power. 

- Where can I demo this eBike?

Propella had successful Demo-Day t the Seattle Bike Show on March 5-6, 2016.

We announce the news for any upcoming events on Indiegogo as well as our social media pages.
