L1e-A electric bike category
The L1e-A electric bike category makes it possible for E-Bike manufacturers to build electric bikes for European customers that have all the benefits of a regular ebike but with much more power. This new class is a great extension and perfectly suited for the UNIMOKE e-bike.
L1e-A “powered cycles” are defined as cycles designed to pedal, equipped with an auxiliary propulsion with the primary aim to aid pedaling. The propulsion should be limited at a speed of 25 km/h and its maximum continuous rated power should not exceed 1,000W. L1e-A includes two-, three- and four-wheel vehicles.
L1e-A in many countries means that the bike needs to be registered and insured (please check your local laws and regulations for your specific situation). This gives you the peace of mind that your bike is registered and therefore can be traced in the unlikely case your bike is lost or stolen. European authorities have carefully studied the requirements necessary for you to safely and securely ride your ebike. Only those bikes that fully comply with the L1e-A regulation are offered a European type approval.
Being in the L1e-A category gives the E-Bikes many benefits over traditional ebikes. Some of these benefits include:
Throttle On Demand
Unlike many traditional ebikes, the new class gives you the benefit of an on-demand throttle. Depending on your needs you can choose to stick to pedal assist, rely solely on the throttle, or give yourself a quick power boost while riding in pedal assist mode by flicking the throttle. Very effective for overtaking, helping you to accelerate from standstill, or overcoming that sudden steep incline!
Made with passion in Berlin
500/ 750W Motor
The upcoming L1e-A UNIMOKE will feature the proven BAFANG G06 500/750W motor instead of the typical 250W motors of regular ebikes. That is three times the power at your feet or fingertips! Hills that are hard to conquer on a regular ebike suddenly are doable with a L1e-A because of the extra power. Strong headwind? Not a problem. Heavy loads? You can still ride virtually effortless!
No Helmet Required
While we always recommend wearing one for safety, the L1e-A category in most countries means that a helmet is not required and the bikes can be used on regular cycle lanes and paths (please check local laws and regulations for your specific situation).
About Urban Drivestyle
Urban Drivestyle was originally started as the first “electric only” bike and scooter rental on the Island of Mallorca. As renters demanded rugged, powerful and cool e-bikes and the market could not offer what was needed, Urban Drivestyle simply developed their own. The MOKE, as it was called back then, was designed to work from day one and the unique design originates from condensing all the requirements gathered in everyday tour- and rental operations.
Right after introducing MOKE into rental business, more and more customers showed interest in actually buying the bike. In February 2017, Urban Drivestyle ran a very successful crowdfunding campaign, selling over 200 bikes in a few weeks to more than 40 countries. This success laid the base for fully committing the business to this product. The MOKE was completely redesigned and optimised for private use and quick exchange of accessories like cargo racks and child seats. As the bike became more and more “universal” in use, this version was called the UNIMOKE.
In December 2017, just 10 months after introducing the product to the market, Urban Drivestyle relocated to Berlin, Germany into new and open workspaces in the Factory Berlin, Görlitzer Park. This large step was necessary to optimise EU wide shipping, get better access to the norther European bike industry.
