Decathlon Elops LD500E e-bike launches for urban rides with 115 km range
The Decathlon Elops LD500E e-bike has been launched in European countries, including France and Germany. The bicycle is described as being perfect for city rides and longer journeys. The electric bike has a 504 Wh battery providing up to 115 km (~71 miles) of assistance range on a single charge; you can fully recharge the power pack in around seven hours.
The 250 W motor provides up to 45 Nm of torque; a torque sensor built into the bottom bracket allows for natural feeling assistance, with a 1x8 speed transmission. An LCD dashboard mounted on the handlebars provides information such as the battery charge level and your speed. You can use the display to switch between the three power modes or to select walk assistance mode. Plus, an integrated USB port enables you to charge devices on the go. AXA BLUELINE Lights and reflective strips on the tires help you to see and be seen, and TEKTRO TKD32 hydraulic disc brakes provide shorter stopping distances.
