Do you need an e-brake?
What is an E-brake?
Ebrake is an essential part of ebike "fail safe" safety system design. Ebrake sensor senses when the rider has applied the brakes and send signal to the controller to stop the motor from surging ahead. Only professional factory built ebikes include front and rear ebrakes as standard safety feature.
Does all the ebikes have ebrake?
NO. Not all ebikes have ebrakes’ function for front and rear brakes. Please note that you can ride your ebike without ebrakes. If you do this be sure that your brakes are strong enough to stop the ebike, especially when the motor happen to be in full power throttle mode.
Are ebrakes a good idea?
The short answer is YES.
Depending on the programming of your ebike system, the motor can still pull ahead even when you stop pedaling, albeit for a very brief time. In a panic stop a brief time can seem forever.
During the design and conception, rider safety and wellbeing are our top priority. Sometime moisture shorts the internal wires and throttle may get locked in throttle position. The ebrakes cut off function can be a safeguard from that happening.
Tektro is among the most reputable for making quality ebrakes original equipment for professional ebikes manufacture. The ebrake has sensor adjustment feature and calibrate to the overall smoothness of our ebikes. The left hand handle also has a built-in high-pitch bell for added safety.
