Easy controls
The Sunbear features both throttle control and computer controlled pedal assist.

Before riding, switch on the battery.
Switch on the electrics by pressing the middle button next to the LCD.
The LCD shows level 1 assistance. There are 5 level of pedal assistance, 1 provides the least assistance, 5 the highest.
Press the up and down button to select the desired level.
If you start pedalling, the motor will kick in.
The gears are controlled by a twist grip handle that you can change at anytime, even when stationary.
Simply twist the handle, you can hear a tiny click as the Nexus gearbox (built into the rear wheel hub) shifts through its 7 gears.
The wonderful Nexus gearbox lets you change gears any time, even when remaining stationary!
Simply select the gear that you feel most comfortable with.
As well as pedal assist, the Sunbear has a throttle on the left handlebar.
If you don't want to pedal, use the throttle (by simply twisting the left twist grip gently down towards you).
The bike will woosh you along nicely.
You can go up more or less any hill in the UK on throttle alone. If you're going up a very, very steep hill, you may need to pedal a little bit. Even so, the hugely powerful motor will take most of the strain, so going uphill is no problem.
The bike is also very pleasant to pedal with no power.
Good suspension, 7 gears, light alloy frame and excellent Velo seat make this a good choice for commuting or leisure.
Also great for low maintenance - an enclosed drive system protects against dust and water for everyday use, especially in the winter.
You won't have to grease the chain for a whole year!
and its Nexus gears and roller brake require virtually no looking after at all. Maximum speed is 15mph and computer controlled.
