The e-bike is a very simple and efficient electric bicycle. It does not require any prior skills other than being able to ride a bicycle. While we provide a security briefing and short training when you come to our shop to rent an e-bike, here you will find a tutorial how to use the e-bike.
The e-bike is very simple to use for anyone who is a regular bicycle user. In this section, we'll detail how to start it, accelerate and brake.
Switch off the alarm using the remote control, sit on the bike, remove it from its stand, put the key in the ignition and turn it into the ON position.
To move forward, use the accelerator throttle on the right hand side. The e-bike will move forward slowly and you can put your feet on the pedals.
To slow down, release the throttle and gently press the brakes on both sides at the same time (they are the same as on a bicycle).
Remember that you don't need to pedal at all, the engine will do the work for you. To switch off the e-bike, come to a complete stop, turn the key to the OFF position and remove it from the ignition. If you're leaving the e-bike unattended, lock the steering using the key, use the cable lock stored in the front compartment and activate the alarm with the remote control provided.
How to navigate in the Cambodian traffic
First of all, always wear your e-bike helmet! It will protect your head from shocks in case of accident, as well as protect you from the sun. We designed it especially for you, making it as light as possible while ensuring it fits international safety standards. You can adjust the strap to any size.
Unlike motorbikes, the e-bike is completely silent, and other road users will not hear you coming from behind. This is why we recommend to use the horn every time you come behind any other road user, to inform them of your presence. You'll see that the e-bike is equipped with rearview mirrors, which are extremely convenient to see what is happening behind you.
1. Sound the horn using the red switches on each side of the handlebar to alert other road users of your presence. 2. Regularly check your rearview mirror for road users behind you. Don't let buses, trucks and other vehicles surprise you on the Cambodian roads. 3. Activate the turning signals by using the blue switch on left handle. Always start the signal at least 10 seconds before turning, and keep it on until you have safely finished turning. To stop the signal, push on the white middle switch.
A few more things
The digital display on the handlebar will allow you to keep an eye on your speed and to check the status of the battery. The voltage varies between 55 volts (full) and 42 volts (exhausted). When your voltage indicator drops below 45, you should look for a power outlet or start pedalling at the rate of two push every second.
If you ever run out of battery, you will find a battery charger in the front compartment of the e-bike. Take the charger out of its box, plug it in any 220v electric outlet, then connect the charger to the e-bike using the port located just above the back wheel.
