Avanti Discovery 2 – 36V 14ah Panasonic battery + 250watt Mid-Drive Motor
The Avanti Discovery 2 Hybrid Bike fitted with Bafang Mid-Drive 250watt motor and 36V 14Ah Panasonic battery is performance at an affordable price. With its strong 6061 Aluminium frame and chrome alloy suspension fork, it’s more than up to the rigours of everyday use. The suspension fork has a lockout feature to smooth out riding on or off-road. With a Shimano 24 speed drivetrain, it gives you a wide range of gears to work with going up the climbs or into the winds. The wide tyres are great for a little bit of off road use, but mainly give great control for commuting in the city. Also, the Tektro mechanical disc brakes offer dependable and superior braking in all conditions.
We have fitted the Avanti Discovery 2 with our Electric Conversion Kit allowing for an easy and fast ride.
The 36V 14Ah Battery gives you a decent range for the price point and the Bafang 250watt Mid-Drive motor with cadence based pedal assist gives you a great boost as you pedal. This model comes with an integrated display monitor with a readout on battery level, speed and distance among other things.
Choosing between Mid-Drive and Hub Motors simply comes down to personal preference but explained in short; Mid-Drives have better weight distribution as the motor is located right on the bottom bracket, whereas with hub motors, the weight is added at either end of the bike, which can alter the handling balance of the bike. Oftentimes, however, these differences are seen as reasonably minor. You can use the electric throttle or pedal assist depending on your suits you.
At our store, Perth Electric Biycles, we have a huge range of electric conversion kits you can choose from, so if you are wanting to upgrade the battery or motor, have a chat with our staff. We can walk you through the different option and find what suit you and your needs.
