Built by hand at our shop in the Sodo neighborhood of Seattle. Your wheel is built to order and customized to fit the wheel size of your bike. Stainless steel spokes are combined with a double wall rim. Cloth rim tape provides extra protection against flats. A complementary Kenda tire & tube is included to make installation easy (and save you money). Hub is disc brake compatible.
This wheel comes in four different sizes and has a two-cross lacing pattern. A planetary-geared 350w 36v DC brushless hub motor, weighing six pounds is laced into it for a combined weight of only 10 lbs. The hub motor has a smooth free-wheel bearing which means there is no rolling resistance when the motor is turned off. It easily rolls with the same low friction of a regular bike wheel. Other e-bikes use motors without this type of bearing, meaning many of their motor components continue to spin and create drag when you are coasting. Your Hilltopper electric bike wheel, on the other hand, will give you a smooth, effortless ride.
For use with 36 Volt batteries only.
