What are the classes of e-bikes?

There are three different classes of e-bikes. Classes were created to determine how e-bikes should be used according to local e-bike laws. Currently, 22 states across the U.S. utilize the three-class system for e-bikes.

The classes include:

  • Class 1: The Class 1 e-bike provides assistance only when you pedal, and stops assisting when you reach 20 mph — great for bike lanes, bike paths, roads or anywhere you would take a traditional bike.
  • Class 2: The Class 2 e-bike is equipped with a throttle which provides a boost without pedaling, and stops assisting at 20 mph.
  • Class 3: The Class 3 e-bike is equipped with a speedometer, and only assists until the bike reaches 28 mph on pedal assist alone, and throttle allowed in some states up to 20mph.

What is the difference between purchasing directly from Magnum Bikes online versus a certified dealer?

The main difference is availability.

We highly recommend purchasing through a certified dealer when possible. It builds a good relationship for service and support. You can find a dealer near you here.

For customers who purchase directly from Magnum Bikes online, because they are not near a certified dealer, most of their service and support goes through our customer support team. Shop directly here.

What is the top speed of my E-Bike?

The top speed of your e-bike is determined by several of the following factors: weather, rider weight, terrain, incline, using the throttle and pedal assist.
In great conditions, the top speed of using throttle only will be 20MPH.
Depending on the bike model and the use of pedal assist, the top speed will be between 25MPH-28MPH.
These speeds may be lower if any of the above factors are in place.

Your top speed will also be determined by which class it is in. Class is determined by state and city laws.

The classes include:

  • Class 1: The Class 1 e-bike provides assistance only when you pedal, and stops assisting when you reach 20 mph — great for bike lanes, bike paths, roads or anywhere you would take a traditional bike.
  • Class 2: The Class 2 e-bike is equipped with a throttle which provides a boost without pedaling, and stops assisting at 20 mph.
  • Class 3: The Class 3 e-bike is equipped with a speedometer, and only assists until the bike reaches 28 mph on pedal assist alone, and throttle allowed in some states up to 20mph.
