Cyclone 500 Watt Bicycle Motor Kit
The Cyclone 500 watt kit is the performance champion. By using your bike's gearing it can climb steep hills, accelerate faster and achieve higher cruising. The 500 watt motor will drive 20" folding bikes up to 21 mph and 26" bikes at 27+ mph on level ground. At crusing speeds, the motor will draw about 15-20 amps and when accelerating and climbing it can draw up to 40 amps. The 500 watt motor performs best when coupled with our high performance 24v 20Ahr Li-Ion battery. With this battery we have gone over 45 miles on level ground at average speeds of 15-18mph. Higher speeds and/or hilly terrain will reduce range from 20% to 50%.
In order to achieve maximum performance from our 500 watt motor, you must use a battery that is capable of supplying sufficient current. Our 12v 18ahr SLA and our 24v 13ahr NiMH batteries are not recommended for use with the 500 watt motor. Using batteries that are too small will give poor climbing, slow top speeds, shorter range and may damage the motor controller.
The kit is easily mounted on most diamond frame bikes with the supplied mounting hardware. The kit is supplied with all parts listed above - batteries must be ordered separately. Motor rotates CW. Shipping weight approx. 13.5 lbs.
