    Zipforce is a smart e-bike kit with a Swedish-developed electric motor that allows you to convert virtually any bike into an e-bike. The detachable electric motor is perfect for when you need a little help on the road and makes it easier for both commuters and those who like to go on bike rides.

    Zipforce's new Slim and Distance models are both slightly quieter and a little easier to install than their predecessor, the Zipforce One. In addition, Slim is lighter while Distance has a larger battery capacity that can take you longer on a charge.

    How does Zipforce work?

    When you step on the pedals, the motor is activated by the wireless pedal sensors. The electric motor's drive wheel rests against the tyre and helps propel the bike forward as long as you keep pedalling.

    Simplified assembly

    The electric motor mount is adapted to fit most bikes. Some bikes may need more or less modification to enable you to attach the motor. What's new with Slim and Distance, is that the pedal sensors are now wireless. This makes installation a little easier and cuts installation time in half compared to its predecessor, the Zipforce One.

    Once you have mounted the bracket, the electric motor is easy to remove and reattach. It's handy for charging the electric motor and also reduces the risk of theft as you can take the motor with you when you're done cycling.

    Front or rear wheel mounting?

    The electric motor is most easily mounted on the front wheel, as the package holder and mudguard on the rear wheel often get in the way of the mount. However, the bracket can be mounted on the rear wheel. Don't forget to switch to Reverse Mode in the app so that the motor drives in the right direction.

    Can the electric motor be used with any tyres?

    Zipforce drive wheels work best on smooth tyres suitable for road cycling. However, the electric motor can also be used with patterned tyres as long as the tyre is uniform in the middle.

    You can use Zipforce on bikes with studded tyres as long as the studs are ONLY on the side and do not come into contact with the motor's drive wheel.

    Classified as an electric bicycle

    The motor helps to power the bike up to a maximum speed of 25km/h, which is the maximum allowed speed for electric bikes. The electric motor stops powering the bike at speeds above 25km/h but you can of course pedal faster on your own.

    Zipforce App

    A good tip is to download the Zipforce mobile app to your phone. Once you have paired the engine via Bluetooth, you can easily make many of the settings directly in the app. For example, you can adjust the assistance level and set the motor to Reverse Mode, which is a must if you install the electric motor on the rear deck. You can also view usage statistics.

    The app is available for both Android and iOS users and can be downloaded from the App Store and Google Play Store.
