How Do Electric Bikes Work?

E-bikes run on an electric motor that draws power from the lithium ion battery pack. Most electric bikes can be propelled forward by manually pedaling, using the throttle in addition to pedaling, or using just the throttle. Each Murf Electric Bike has all three modes built in.

Are electric BIkes Safe to Operate?

At their core, electric bikes operate like regular bicycles, and can reach similar speeds. Just like a non-electric bicycle, there are brakes that allow you to slow down and stop. Please follow all normal safety precautions that would follow with a normal bicycle. Always adhere to the rules of the road.

What's the difference between throttle control vs. pedal assist?

The pedal-assist mode works in tandem with the electric motor to give you a little boost. Imagine someone who starts pushing you on a regular bicycle only when you start pedaling.

The throttle only mode works like the throttle on a moped or motorcycle. You can hum along or quickly pick up speed using only the electric engine.
