Reliable Samsung Cells
While developing the Arc high powered conversion kit, we needed to ensure that the 18650 cells were capable of faultless reliability and output. After testing multiple cell manufacturers, we decided on the well known and best performing Samsung cells. On all of our test bikes, after hundreds of pretty brutal testing hours, the Samsung cells are holding strong with no noticable decline in performance.
Range vs. Power
The cell configuration on these 560Wh batteries gives you the perfect mixture between power, range and battery footprint. Cramming 48V of power at 11.6Ah into our beautifully designed frame mounted battery case was a must! Anyone who has owned a 1000W electric bike kit before knows that it is impracticle to expect any decent offroading with a bulky rear rack mounted battery.
High Torque Electric Bike Motor
Why else do you want a high power conversion kit? This motor will provide you with plenty of torque to help accelerate you to the top speed, or pull you up a steep hill easily. Coupled with the hand built hub and wheel combination, we are positive the wheel will transmit the torque to the ground without destroying the spokes.
Brains and Looks
This stylish 48V controller is the brains of the operation - without it, you would have no safety features, power or control. Packed with nine STP80NF70 MOSFETs, it is capable of drawing up to 22A from the Samsung battery pack. Not only is it more than capable, it is build robust and looks discrete. The strong cases protects all of the internals from dust and water up to the international standard IP65 rating.
What is included with this electric bike kit
Why do we prefer frame-mounting batteries on a high-powered conversion kit? Because it keeps the center of gravity nice and low, so as not to create a top-heavy electric bike that would lead to a big hit to your agility while tackling downhill trails.
Do you love your brakes? So do we! We know that you do not want to replace your brake levers with some cheap brand that just does not feel the same; so don’t. These little cables don’t seem like much, but they will turn any brake lever into a custom e-brake system in minutes.
Twist or thumb? It is completely your choice. The throttle you use should come down to a matter of preference, not whatever you are stuck with. We have thrown in both types of throttles commonly used. Don’t want to use a throttle or not allowed due to restrictions in your area of the globe? You are not required to install one to use this kit. Instead, you can operate it using pedal assist only.
What can we say? What good is in electric bike conversion kit without a battery charger? Fast charge your battery in four to six hours knowing that your battery is protected against overcharging. Preventing a potentially catastrophic incident. Plug it in, and don’t worry about it.
