Mobility, Fitness and Recreation
The 2 models in the LightSpeed range - The DRYFT(Drift) and GLYD(Glide).
The dual-powered nature of the LightSpeed eBikes allows you the freedom to switch between manual and battery power as the situation demands it.

DRYFT – The Adventure Companion
Made for the adventurers, DRYFT is the perfect eBike for the rocky terrain and the sharp twists and turns on uphill and downhill roads, finding a home with urban thrill seekers just as much as it is for the mountain bikers.

EASY PEDALLING : Powered by Pedal Boost Technology
Cadence and Torque Sensors
Giving the controllers an accurate picture of the harmony between the effort put in by the rider and the powerful boost that is supplied by the motor to augment the manual power.
Allows you to optimise your ride in accordance with the terrain and energy levels you find yourself in. The lowest levels give you the bare minimum aid, so you can rely upon your own power to continue onward. For a more tangible push, crank it up to the mid-levels, where you share the effort with the motor to send you on your way. Or, you could simply go full assist, giving over the effort to the motor, and letting your legs simply breeze through the pedalling motions.
For a glimpse into the health benefits, we are happy to tell you that Lightspeed eBike aids you burns 500 calories per hour.

Displaying more than the usual information, the LED Display (in GLYD) and the backlit LCD Display (in DRYFT) artfully located on the steering of LightSpeed eBikes tell the user:
- Current Battery Levels
- Walk Assist Levels
- Pedal Boost Assist Levels
Moreover, by upgrading the GLYD to the LCD Display that is already incorporated in the DRYFT, the user can also have access such as:
- Speed, Trip Distance and Total Distance Travelled
- Total Motor Power Consumption
- Status Messages like Cruise Control Toggle and Fault Codes
- Password Protection
Robust and resilient to wear and tear as the rest of the frame, the LCD Display can sustain in a broad range of temperature and weather situations, making your eBike look good as new for longer.

- Augmented with a specially developed Battery Management System (BMS)
- Monitors the vital statistics of the battery and motor via the controller
- Allows the battery to operate at its optimal condition
- Ensures dissipation of the generated heat to increase life expectancy
PIC: Battery pack.
Powerful Noiseless TORQ MOTOR
- Noiseless/Vibration/ Maintenance -free motor pack fitted into the rear wheel
- 250 Watts 32 NM torque
By restricting the speed of the motor to 25 kmph, the eBikes require no licence to ride, and can be taken right out of the shop and onto the streets.
PIC: Noiseless motor.
TWIST THROTTLE CAPABILITY
Identical to the propulsion in motorcycles or scooters, the twist throttle with its distinctive aluminium bushings provides an alternative means of acceleration on the steering handlebar.
LightSpeed eBrakes impede the mechanical motion with friction and cuts off the power supply to the motor. This prevents both a deadlock between motor push and a resistance at the wheel, creating a smoother and safer braking mechanism.
A lightweight charger is included with all eBikes to facilitate quick and efficient charging of your battery packs. With two speeds to charge your motor, both—fast and slow—at your preference, these standardised chargers are ideal for urgent situations and will work in any two-pin socket.

Q. Do the eBikes have regenerative braking?
A. While regenerative braking has its uses in larger and more heavyweight vehicles, we have found that it does not provide the value for money in a vehicle as lightweight as the LightSpeed eBikes, for the amount of energy recovered is negligible. Therefore, we have chosen not to implement regenerative braking in our eBikes.
Q. How long does the battery take to charge? How long does it last on a single charge?

Q. What happens if the battery runs out of power?
A. In the unfortunate situation that your battery is completely drained of power, the eBike can be used as a regular bicycle with manual power provided by pedalling.
Q. What is the maximum amount of weight that one can put on the eBike frame?
A. The maximum amount of weight that the frame can sustain is 120kg.
Q. What is the lifecycle of the battery?
A. The battery can last for a period of 4-5 years.
Q. How many charge cycles can the battery sustain? What happens at the end of the battery life cycle?
