P20 front wheel motor
All PF mobility P20 models are equipped with the strong and silent 36V/250W front wheel motor manufactured by the Danish company ProMovec. This is an absolute strong and compact motor with a planetary gear set that ensures a powerful and smooth ride. Planetary gear (otherwise known as ‘epicyclic gear train’) is a designation for a certain production principle with regards to the gear operation, where the design of the motor ensures the transfer of a high torque the size of the motor taken into consideration.
Mounted in the front wheel the motor works in combination with a battery placed on a bracket behind the seat above the axle. The battery can be charged while on the bike, or you can take it off and charge it inside; charging inside the house should always take place at low temperatures (i.e. at 10°C or lower); this ensures the longest possible lifetime of the battery.
This motor and battery system is a Danish designed and developed system where great emphasis has been put on design and high quality standards.
Propulsion of the bike takes place over a so-called speed drive system. A sensor placed on the pedal arm registers movement and ensures that you obtain best possible help from the motor at each assist level of which there are five. Once the assist level has been chosen, velocity is regulated in accordance with the same. Assist level thus corresponds to 10 km/h and assist level 5 to 25 km/h. The manufacturer names this system “PAS” which is short for Pedal Assist System – also known as a rotation-based propulsion system.
All batteries from this manufacturer are produced “under green conditions”. Great considerations are thus taken to the environment and with minimal footprint on the same by using wind and water generated electricity. With this knowledge you can with ease in mind get on your PF mobility P20 tricycle and enjoy the ride with lots of help from a modern, strong and environment-friendly motor and battery system.
