Our electric bike batteries are: LiMnO2-Lithium Manganese Oxide made by Samsung.
According to the U.S. government, lithium ion batteries aren’t an environmental hazard. “Lithium Ion batteries are classified by the federal government as non-hazardous waste and are safe for disposal in the normal municipal waste stream,” says Kate Krebs at the National Recycling Coalition. While other types of batteries include toxic metals such as cadmium, the metals in lithium ion batteries – cobalt, copper, nickel and iron – are considered safe for landfills or incinerators (Interestingly enough, lithium ion batteries contain an ionic form of lithium but no lithium metal).
There are currently no recycling programs but as the use of e-bikes, scooters and cars grow there is a very strong possibility this will be introduced soon.
The really great news is that there is no ongoing maintenance of Eko Electric Bikes electrical components. Just remember to keep your battery charged and your good to go!

With throttle control, you have complete “on demand” power. You simply turn the throttle when you want assistance from the motor. Pedal assist (PAS) refers to the motor starting when you pedal. Sensors detect when you are pedaling. This activates the motor to provide additional assistance.
The speed limits can be quickly and easily set at any speed.
1000W motor can be set at 15mph, 20mph or 29mph.
500W motors can be set at 15mph, 20mph or 24mph.
350W motor can be set at 15mph or 20mph.
Our e-bikes are considered unisex bikes because of the position of the down bar. We have one size frame for the 26” and 29” tires. For shorter riders and kids the 20” tire bike is a very comfortable fit. If you are still unsure on size, a good idea may be to head to your local bike shop and take the measurements of the bike that fits you best.
Keep in mind, all e-bikes are heavier than regular bikes because of the motor and battery.
Our e-bikes typically get 20 to 43 miles per charge for the 500W models. Using the motor while pedaling will greatly increase the distance of the battery charge and make those hills twice as easy. Use a nice mix of pedaling and throttle and you will see your mileage increase dramatically. Plan your trips accordingly.
Most people don’t. A typical rider can experience 30 to 45 miles per charge with stop and go city riding. It all depends on how much you pedal and how much you use the electric motor. The best way to achieve more mileage is to pedal when you can and only use the motor when needed. This will maximize the distance your electric bike will go. If you are planning longer trips, then yes, we would suggest an extra battery. On average, a battery has a 7 year life expectancy.
