With throttle control and pedal assist, the Santana-CD is easy to ride.
Electric controls are on the left, gear shift and throttle on the right.
To get going, switch on the electrics by pressing the middle [mode] button next to the trip computer on the left.
Change your assistance level if you wish (there are 5 levels, change by pressing the up or down buttons).
There are 7 gears, gear 1 gives you the biggest torque, for climbing the steepest hills, gear 7 the smallest torque and fastest speed, for flat road cruising.
Twist down the throttle like on a motobike or start pedalling and the Sant Ana will woosh you along nicely!
The Santana-CD is also easy to pedal with no power.

Why choose a chain drive?
A hub motor can only deliver around 20-30NM torque - fine for flat roads but on steep hills, the motor will slow down and output power will drop rapidly.
So if you want to ride hills, a chain drive bike is a must.
On the Sant-Ana CD, you'll get around 18NM torque on the 7th gear and about 44NM on the first gear.
By choosing the best gear to suit your terrain, the motor will contine running at high speed, maintaining maximum power output - and if you want to use just the throttle without pedalling, the Sant-Ana CD will do this perfectly.

    Power delivery is very gradual on the Santana-CD.
    However, this power is transmitted through chain and gears, you should squeeze the brake handles slightly to cut out the motor momentarily when changing gears to protect the derailleur.
    There is also this useful maneuver to change gear more smoothly: throttle up, stop pedalling, thottle down, change gear and throttle up again, very much like you would do with your car.
