The motor

The motor

The motor forms, together with the battery, the heart of the e-bike. Keola e-bikes are available in multiple variations, with motors that fit the e-bike seamlessly. Keola builds e-bikes with front wheel drive and mid drive motors. Depending on the wishes of our customers, we can implement nearly every motor brand, including:

  • Bafang
  • Brose
  • Shimano Steps
  • The battery

    The battery

    The battery is the energy source of the e-bike. At Keola we are able to equip e-bikes with a range of batteries, including Samsung Batteries. The Samsung batteries contain high quality cells and are available with multiple capacities. Keola has also build her own type of battery, the ‘Longlife battery’. The Longlife battery has up to 3 times the lifecycle of a normal Samsung battery.

    374 Wh (10,4Ah) Samsung battery Average distance 70 kilometer
    562 Wh (15,6Ah) Samsung battery Average distance 100 kilometer
    680 Wh (18,9Ah) Samsung battery  Average distance 120 kilometer
    360 Wh (10,0Ah)  Longlife battery Average distance 70 kilometer

    Gears

    Gears are an essential part of the e-bike. In addition to the pedal assistance, the gear levels are indispensable for creating a fully personalized riding experience. Keola builds e-bikes with a range of possible gear systems, including:

  • Shimano Derailleur system
  • Shimano Nexus system (3, 7 of 8)
  • NuVinci 330/380 system - stepless shifting
  • Sturmey Archer system

    Lighting

    Lighting

    A good e-bike has good lighting. To make sure our e-bikes are clearly visible in the dark, Keola works together with Spanninga. The Dutch brand has been developing bike-lighting since 1933. This accumulated experience provides Keola e-bikes with exclusive, innovative and high quality lighting. Keola e-bikes are equipped with Spanninga front- and rear lighting. We are furthermore capable to equip e-bikes with the high-end lighting of Busch & Muller.

    Brake systems

    Safety comes first! In addition to being clearly visible in the dark, it is crucial that e-bikes are equipped with safe and user friendly brakes. Keola e-bikes are equipped with brakes that meet the national safety requirements. For our premium models we go a step further: hydraulic Magura brakes.

    Beta-Motion

    Beta-Motion

    The R&D department of Keola is continuously doing research into finding the best driving-experiences. The mid motor is widely acclaimed as the most comfortable driving system by the trade press. For our front wheel drive e-bikes we have developed ‘Beta Motion’. Beta Motion creates the feeling of a mid motor… on a front wheel motor. One way the Beta Motion system accomplishes this, is by generating a smooth start-up when you ride away.

    (Dutch) Laws and regulations

    (Dutch) Laws and regulations

    Keola only builds e-bikes that provide a maximum support up to 25 kilometer per hour. The average speed on a regular bike is 15 kilometers per hour, quite a difference. Our e-bikes fall in the category ‘regular e-bikes’, meaning the user can endlessly ride the bike without having to wear a helmet or use a blue license plate. No special driving  license or insurance is needed to ride Keola e-bikes. Moreover, no age restrictions apply to the e-bike user. Keola e-bikes are for everyone.
