GoCycle G2R Electric Pedelec
Gocycle -- the Smartest Folding Electric Bike
The Gocycle Electric Bike designed by Richard Thorpe, who earned his reputation designing McLaren supercars, is a smart foldable electric bike from the UK. With its futuristic clean design, the GoCycle has virtually no exposed cables, wiring, battery and gears.
Pedal Assist Modes
The Gocycle G2 minimalistic dashboard gives you just the essential information: gear setting, battery life and speed. The dashboard handlebar also has buttons that allows you to set different modes:
- City mode - Offers a moderate amount of assist and is pedal assist only
- Eco mode - Less pedal assist enabling more of a workout for the rider and better range
- On-demand mode - This is a throttle only mode that adds assist with the red button when you want it.
- Custom - default setting is Eco+ which further provides more range but with less assist.
Gocycle's electronic Predictive Shifting™ takes the hassle out of shifting gear, automatically shifting up or down the gears depending on what speed the bike is going and your pedal input. As you pedal faster, the gears shift up automatically and when the bike slows down or when you pedal slower, the gears shift down.
With the GocycleConnect App (for iPhone & Android smartphones) the Custom mode also allows you to easily adjust the top speed of the assist (up to 25 mph), pedal assist only or pedal assist & throttle.
Because the tires are relatively smaller than full bikes, the 1 inch rear suspension travel helps to absorb the city bumps while riding. There is no front suspension however.
The chain and Shimano Nexus 3 speed internally geared hub are totally enclosed by the Gocycle Cleandrive®. The chain does not need to be lubricated or adjusted and the Nexus hub is electronically shifted.
