Dual controls
The Sirocco-CDL has both throttle and pedal assist.
To turn on the electrics, press the middle button labelled MODE to the left of the LCD display on the left handlebar.
There are 5 level of assistance, 1 provides the least assistance, 5 the highest.
Press the up and down button to select the desired level.
The 7 gears are controlled by your right thumb.
Gear 1 is for steepest hills, gear 7 for fastest speed.
As well as pedal assist, the Sirocco CDL has a throttle on the right grip. Start pedalling or use the throttle (by simply twisting the left twist grip gently down towards you), the motor will kick in and the bike will woosh you along nicely - the motor is very quiet.
You can go up more or less any hill.
The bike is also very pleasant to pedal with no power.
This bike has been given an EN15194 certificate.
Maximum speed is 15mph and computer controlled.

The 7-speed CDL has quick release only on the front wheel
the 8-speed CD has also quick release on the rear wheel (picture).

  • Power delivery is very gradual on the Sirocco-CDL.
    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.
