Definition of an electric bicycle or pedelec.

Pedelec explanation - Applicable to all regions

The AM1 range of electric bicycles may also be referred to as pedelecs. The motor in your AM1 will provide assistance up to a maximum speed of 25km/h (15.5 mph) when you pedal. The AM1 also has a walk assist throttle, which will assist your AM1 up to 6km/h (4 mph). Using the throttle to achieve speeds in excess of 6mk/h (4mph) must be off public roads only.


Be careful to check all of the following points before riding your AM1 on public roads.

  • Find out what category your pedelec falls into in your country. Note that regulations vary from country to country.
  • Familiarise yourself with any national and regional road regulations that apply.
  • Any regulations that apply may change from time to time. Make sure you keep up to date with changes to the laws in your country.
  • Never tamper with the speed of your AM1. This can have not only serious legal consequences, but could lead to injury as a result of accidents.
