The e-bike revolution has made cycling easier, particularly for commuting cyclists in urban settings. This is a great new movement that will get reluctant riders off the fence and onto saddles.
Now, Alizeti has made e-cycling itself easier by introducing an electric motor retrofit kit that converts any standard road bike into a powered steed. Montreal-based Alizeti offers their Power Drive System that provides all the benefits of an e-bike with an integrated functionality that delivers a seamless, integrated user experience.
This augmented ride is courtesy of a drive system that mounts to your bike via an integrated rear rack. The Alizeti 300C Conversion Kit weighs only 11 lbs. and is currently the lightest e-bike conversion kit on the market. The unit, built of aluminum in Canada and impervious to the elements, transmits an extra 500 watts to the bicycle through a roller unit on the rear tire. A top speed of 20 mph is possible.
The 300C has two slots for 24 volt lithium-ion batteries. Alizeti calls this their Dual Flex Power battery system, and it allows a lighter load for shorter trips with a single battery that yields a 20 mile (32 km) range. Insert an optional second battery and that range doubles to 40 miles (64 km).
Optional features for the 300C are a Bluetooth module for music and data streaming and most importantly for performing software updates to the system via the FREE Alizeti app available for both Android and Apple mobile phones. Other options are the extra battery pack to enable the longer, 40-mile range, and dropout mount brackets to fit the rack to wider and narrower frames.
An upgraded model, the 300T (for “Touring”) comes standard with two battery packs, and also some notable safety features. Two rear signal lights and a flashing forward-facing beacon provide extra visibility on the road. For anti-theft protection (something also important for commuters), the 300T comes with an alarm system, and a loud, distinctive horn provides extra presence in higher traffic situations.
Alizeti’s affordable e-bike upgrade package not only makes cycling easier, but is itself easy to install to your bike. A detailed user guide and installation manual can be downloaded at Alizeti’s website, separately available in the two languages of Alizeti’s home nation (English and French). Alizeti claims that its customers can go from unpowered bike to e-bike bliss in 40 minutes or less.
With its range, power, and versatility, Alizeti claims that its e-bike Power Drive System is the “new paradigm in urban transportation and commuting,” and that’s hard to dispute.
