Can I ride my electric bicycle in the rain?
Yes! With the water-resistant battery design, our bikes can be operated in the rain. However, it is important to keep your eBike protected from extensive exposure to water. For safety reasons, you should avoid whenever possible riding your bicycle in the rain. Riding a bicycle in the rain is like driving a car in the snow. You will not be able to stop as fast and must leave a longer distance between you and the obstacles around you. Your brakes will not perform as quickly when they are wet. You will not be able to turn as sharp without the danger of slipping. You must also ride away from or be cautious around painted lines, pot holes, sewer or drain gates, rail road crossings, bridges, wet leaves and any other areas where a slippery surface can form when wet. Keep an eye out for puddles and turn your lights on if you have them. If you live in an environment where rain riding is expected, you should install front and rear fenders if your bike is not equipped with them to provide protection for the electrical components. Use a cover for your bicycle if leaving it outdoors. Extensive rain can seep into the controller and battery and cause water damage.
