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 power button on the LCD on the left.
Change your assistance level if you wish (there are 5 levels, change by pressing the + or - buttons).
There are 9 gears, gear 1 gives you the biggest torque, for climbing the steepest hills, gear 9 the smallest torque and fastest speed, for flat road cruising.
The gear sensor detects the gear change and cut off the power to the motor while you shift the gear.
The Santana-CD is also fairly easy to pedal with no power.

Why choose a chain drive?
A hub motor can only deliver around 20-35NM 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 Santana CD, you'll get around 18NM torque on the 9th gear and about 50NM 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, you have to pedal a couple of seconds beforehand.

Santana-CD battery

Long range, long life battery

The Santana comes with a 36V 15AH Lithium battery. It is rechargeable around 800 to 1000 times and will last around 4 years if you use the bike regularly.
If you run on motor alone, you will need between 10WH to 12WH on flat roads, depending on your weight, speed, clothings and headwind.
If you pedal along, even a little, you will extend the range.
Going uphill consumes more. The Santana CD has a range of about 50 miles on a full charge on flat roads.

Perfect bike for commuting

In creating the Santana CD, we are looking for best practical solutions to most common requirements for a good commuter bike.
Comfort, hill climbing, excellent brakes, puncture resistant tyres, 50+ miles range, excellent hill climbing ability, riding position, assistance levels, speed limitation and throttle control have been all taken of.
The result is a truly effective transport, comfortable and responsive bike for daily use.
