Gain is an electric bike designed to enhance your ride, not dominate it. The Enough Power and Enough Energy concepts result in an exceptionally lightweight, sportive and rideable bike - a machine that heeds the call of the open road.
Gain embraces your sweat and hard work and works in unison with your efforts to tick off the miles. System interfaces are modern, integrated and sleek. There are no bulky components to reduce the riding experience and distractions have been minimised - it's just you, Gain and hours of brilliant fun ahead.
The Gain is a new class of eBike. It looks very much like a "normal" bike, is much lighter than other eBikes, and also feels like a proper bike to ride! Press the sleek and simple mode button to switch on the power, and revel in the assistance provided as and when you need it.
Gain is ideal for those looking to enhance their cycling adventures or wanting some assistance on a commute. Whether you're getting into cycling for the first time, getting back on a bike after a long time away, are daunted by the fitness barrier, switching from other forms of transport, or just want to be able to go further more easily, Gain is for you.
Rather than a bulky and heavy battery, Gain utilises an Ebikemotion system that is lightweight and small. The discreet battery is hidden inside the downtube of the frame to provide enough power, not more. It is designed for a range of up to 100 km (about 62 miles) and 1500 metres of altitude. To recharge the battery simply plug in the provided cable into the port on the frame.
The sophisticated Ebikemotion motor is found in the rear hub. It gives smooth and reliable assistance at levels designed to enhance your ride, not dominate it. Sensors monitor your pedalling input and the assistance is cleverly adjusted accordingly. When you switch off the power you have the advantage of drag-free pedalling, just like a regular bike.
The mode button on the top tube is your control centre. An attractive and discreet design that uses coloured LEDs, this iWoc ONE interface allows you to power on and off, change the assistance level, check the assistance level and check the battery charge remaining.
For further information at your fingertips, including speed, distance, timer, ride tracking, activity and GPS route uploading, use the smartphone and smartwatch compatible app to enable greater control of the iWoc system.
