What are the three different e-bike classes and their speed limits?
10 February 2023
In Europe, there are three different classes of e-bikes, each with their own speed limit:

Class 1 e-bikes: These are pedal-assist bikes that provide a boost only while the rider is pedaling. The motor cuts out once the rider reaches a speed of 25 km/h (15.5 mph).
Class 2 e-bikes: These are throttle-assist bikes that provide power without the need for pedaling. The motor cuts out once the rider reaches a speed of 25 km/h (15.5 mph).
Class 3 e-bikes: These are pedal-assist bikes that provide a boost only while the rider is pedaling. The motor cuts out once the rider reaches a speed of 45 km/h (28 mph). Class 3 e-bikes are required to have a speedometer, so the rider can monitor their speed.
It's important to note that these are the standards for Europe, and different regions may have different regulations regarding e-bike speed limits. It is recommended to check the laws and regulations in your area before riding an e-bike.
