Rear Hub Motor Neodrives Z20

Innovative German Power for Connoisseurs

The typical features of rear wheel hub motors are that they are incredibly silent, dynamic and versatile. An outstanding choice for this type of drive is the Neodrives Z20: Optimized for dynamic riding, it comes with a futuristic design and an energy efficiency of 85% coupled with easy-use features such as a touch screen display.

The stats of the Neodrives Z20 speak for themselves. The maximum degree of support is 300 percent. When accelerating, the motor increases its maximum power output to up to 450 watts. With a 576 Wh battery, you can achieve ranges of up to 136 kilometers (84 miles) on your electric trike or recumbent bike. The whisper-quiet rear-wheel drive is a gearless motor. Thus engine power is not lost to the chain or sprocket. This protects these drive parts, which will last up to four times longer on average than with bottom bracket motors. To ensure the highest quality standards, the motors are made in Germany.

A particular advantage of a hub motor system in contrast to bottom bracket motors is that they can recover energy when riding downhill, and therefore increase your range. This technology is called recuperation. Just push a button on the control unit and the motor operates as a generator. This charges the battery and also protects the pads of your disc brakes. The drive also protects the environment and your wallet. With modern green electricity, a full charge of riding pleasure costs you only pennies per day.

Unique in the recumbent bike sector: The trikes with hub motor have a reverse gear for maneuvring. Reverse travel at up to 3 km/h (1.86 mph) is activated via a submenu in the control unit and started with an initial movement by the driver.

Tailwind With a Thumb

The Neodrives Z20 Makes It Easy to Control

The remote control of this innovative system is mounted directly on the handlebar grip. The most important settings can be controlled by using your thumb. The developers have arranged the five buttons ergonomically in such a way that their size and positioning are intuitive right from the start. In other words, the large plus and minus buttons for switching through the support cannot be missed.

The rear hub motor system Neodrives Z20 also makes it easy to take a closer look at data such as: remaining range, battery charge level, current power consumption, daily distance travelled or average speed. Thanks to the touchscreen, the menus on the 2- inch color display (5 cm) can be scrolled quickly and easily. This even works in the rain and even with a variety of gloves.
