Do You Ship Internationally?

Will removing the speed limit on e-bikes affect the warranty?

If you’re concerned about maintaining your e-bike’s warranty after unlocking or modifying it, Its not all bad news. In many cases, the warranty can still be maintained as long as the software and hardware chips are properly removed, and any necessary steps are taken prior to making a warranty claim. We always recommend that you check with us prior to getting any warranty work done, so we can help ensure that your e-bike is properly set up to maintain the highest chance of getting its warranty.

*Epic eBikes cannot guarantee that the warranty will be valid for an unlocked bike. This is due to the fact that the e-bike manufacturer may develop new methods to detect unlocking or investigations into e-bike diagnostics may uncover evidence of unlocking.

Can I add a throttle to my ebike?

If you’re considering adding a throttle to your e-bike, it’s important to note that not all e-bikes are compatible with this type of modification. In fact, Most Major brands of e-bikes such as Bosch, Shimano and Specialized powered bikes are not designed to accommodate a throttle. However, if you’re looking for an e-bike that can be modified with a throttle, consider the range of Bafang motor powered Frey bikes available here. These bikes are designed with the flexibility to allow for a throttle, making them a great choice for riders who prefer this type of control.

How do I get my eBike unlocked?

Epic eBikes offers speed limit modification services for many popular e-bike brands such as Shimano, Giant, Bosch, Rocky Mountain, Specialized, Fazua and more.

For Shimano and Giant e-bikes, the speed limit can be removed through a software update, which can be done by visiting an agent who has access to the necessary software and interface tools.

For other e-bike brands we offer hardware chips to modify the speed limit and the good news is that you can install them yourself by following instructional videos or written guides.

Will unlocking my eBike use more battery

Unlocking an e-bike may reduce the range at consistent very high speeds, as the motor will consume more energy to maintain the increased speed. However, this reduction in range is often offset by the fact that an unlocked bike is able to travel faster given the same motor power. Therefore, the increased speed can lead to a more efficient use of the motor’s power, which may result in a negligible reduction in range for most riders. It’s important to keep in mind that range and speed are both affected by many factors, including terrain, rider weight, and wind conditions, so it’s difficult to predict the exact impact of unlocking an e-bike on its range.

Some unlock products such as the Pro Shimano Flash on e8000 Motors and hardware chips that pair with mobile applications not only modify the speed limit on e-bikes but also allow for further motor customization, which can result in extended range. These customizations can include changes to the pedal assist levels, power output, and motor efficiency, among other factors. By fine-tuning these settings, riders can optimize their e-bikes for their specific needs and preferences, resulting in increased range and improved overall performance.
