The Watt California is a minimalist electric city bike that is suitable for women with its low entry. With this bike you can drive from door to door without any problems and you are often faster than by car or scooter.
Sleek design with low entry
The low step-through frame is made of aluminum, which makes the bike light and strong at the same time. The bike weighs around 19.5 kg, so you can still cycle well without pedal assistance. You are also clearly visible in the dark thanks to the front and rear light and the reflective bands. Furthermore, the bike has a front and rear mudguard so that you do not get dirty in bad weather. When you park the bike, you can easily fold out the double standard and you know that the bike will not fall over quickly. You can adjust the handlebars and saddle so that you can always sit comfortably.
Top speed of 25 km/h
The Watt California has a Bafang H700 hub motor which is located in the rear wheel. This engine contains two automatic gears that make it easier to get up to speed and have more power in hilly areas. By detecting the speed while driving, the motor ensures that the speed ratio is automatically adjusted. The power of the motor is 250 watt and has a torque of 32 Nm. The biggest advantage of a motor in the rear wheel is that you have the feeling of a push in the back. With an electric bicycle with the motor in the front wheel, you get the feeling that you are being pulled forward. To stop quickly, the Watt California is equipped with mechanical disc brakes.
The Watt California is equipped with a lithium battery that is tightly concealed in the frame of the bike. You cannot remove the battery from the frame without tools. As a result, you have to charge the bicycle in a place with a socket. The battery has a capacity of 387 Wh, so you can cycle 40 to 70 kilometers on a full charge. The range depends on several factors, for example, the range will be less if you ride in the highest support position with headwind.
