Center Drive Powerful Motor & Long Last Samsung Battery

The 500W motor that powers the Santa Fe Classic makes it a powerful electric bike. The motor is center-drive, the best option when you are looking for a bike that will cruise at high speed and also climb steep terrain easily.

When this bike is fully charged, the motor has an assisted range of 40-50 miles (80 km), which would mean it would cover your daily commute.

A powerful a motor as this one needs to be powered by an equally powerful battery. The Santa Fe Classic has a 48 volts 11.6 Amp Samsung battery which takes 2-3 hours to charge fully.

You can be assured that this battery is durable because it has been sourced from Samsung, which is a reliable brand when it comes to e-bike batteries.


S-Pedelec Class

All electric bikes are designed to reach a certain speed limit at which point, the battery automatically cuts out. The Phantom Santa Fe Classic is capable of a speed of 25mph (40 km/hr), and is thus an S-Pedelec.

The speed limit for normal pedal assist e-bikes known as Pedelecs is 15mph (24 km/hr). Pedal assist e-bikes that can reach speeds beyond this point, like in the case of the Santa Fe Classic are S-Pedelecs.

In most cases, laws governing the use of e-bikes, require that S-Pedelecs be used on motorized trails, while users are expected to have a license, insurance and protective helmet. You always have to consider the law as you buy and ride your bike. Speed limit, motor power and weight of the bike are key factors to consider so that you do not find yourself on the wrong side of the law.

The fact that S-Pedelecs are capable of reaching high speeds means that they pose danger to other users on bike trails. This is why you are required to use motorized or designated trails when using an S-Pedelec.
