Yes, the Powerkit drive mechanism is independent of the bicycle’s regular drive train. Due to the freewheel in the motor it runs also very smooth should the battery be empty once. The chain is also not affected by the electric drive regardless which gear is engaged – the transmission of the Powerkit is always the same.
Montage & Service
CAN I ALSO DRIVE WITH THE POWERKIT REGULARLY WITHOUT ANY ELECTRIC POWER?
DOES THE BATTERY CHARGE WHEN BRAKING OR IN FREE WHEELING?
Very practical in theory! But unfortunately too heavy in reality to be compatible with good driving characteristics. The extent of the possible energy recovery would be marginal.
DOES THE POWERKIT SPORT FIT ON MY BIKE?
There are only a few requirements that your bike has to meet in order to mount our Powerkit Sport.
- Stable bike frame
- Disc brakes
- Wheel size: from 26 "
- Round spokes (Ø 1.6 mm - 2 mm)

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO MOUNT THE POWERKIT PRO?
It takes the "longest" time to assemble and align the drive ring (approx. 30 minutes for inexperienced users). The rest - motor, thumb throttle / throttle and battery indicator - can be installed in a good 20 minutes. It doesn't take a minute to just remove the motor if the drive ring remains in place.

IS THE BATTERY CABLE UNPLUGGED IF I SHOULD "FLY" FROM THE BIKE?
The plug connection between the battery and the drive loosens as soon as you should fly off the bike - voluntarily and involuntarily tested;)
IS THE DRIVE DISC VULNERABLE TO DIRT?
No, the drive pulley is made of a high-quality plastic. If dirt gets on the gear, it will simply be displaced. Experience has shown that we indicate a mileage of approx. 2000km until the plastic ring should be changed (this varies depending on the area of application)
THE DRIVE SPROCKET IS ATTACHED TO THE SPOKES, IS NOT THE WHEEL DAMAGE OR A SPOKE BREAKAGE?
The torque of the motor is distributed over the entire circumference of your rear wheel and the drive is supported by a torque arm on the seat stay. Practice and our many years of experience in mechanical engineering and drive technology have shown that it works very well. Nevertheless, we recommend checking the concentricity of the drive ring and the spoke centering more frequently and re-centering it if necessary!
WHAT’S THE BEST METHOD TO CLEAN MY BIKE ONCE THE POWERKIT HAS BEEN ASSEMBLED?
You can clean your bike as usual using a hosepipe and a pH-neutral cleaner. Please prevent to splash directly into the electronic components. We strictly advise you not to use a high-pressure cleaner. After cleaning the bicycle we recommend to ride it shorty to make sure all water gets out of the motor.
