Modes of Locomotion
There are 3 different ways you can use the Wallke foldable ebike:

- pedal-assist (pedal and motor together)
- pedal-only power (use as traditional bicycle).
Battery and Charger
This Wallke ebike is powered by a 48V 10.4Ah large-capacity, anti-theft, Samsung lithium battery. Charging time is generally 5-7 hours. The battery can be removed for charging (48V smart charger and intelligent controller are included). This bike can be upgraded to a 14Ah battery, if you need a stronger battery.
It is very easy to remove and replace, although you can also charge it on the bike. When you’re out on the road, the battery can automatically recharge when riding downhill. You should be able to travel for 25 to 30 miles on a single charge.
The charger can use voltages from 110v to 240v. It will automatically convert according to different voltages.
The ebike comes with a separate key to lock the battery inside its frame so it can’t be stolen.
You should completely charge the battery pack before using for the first time.
Motor and Accelerator
The Wallke ebike is propelled by a 750W brushless motor; maximum speed is 22-25 mph. You’ll find the electric throttle on the right-side handlebar grip. The more you twist the accelerator towards you, the faster the motor system will propel the bicycle.
The bike is fitted with a double-disc hydraulic brake system. Most brakes on the market today are mechanical brakes, which can cause problems when you are riding in wet weather or on muddy roads. Hydraulic brakes have a much better brake effect than mechanical brakes.
