EUROBIKE AWARD

EUROBIKE AWARD

With the increased use and evolution of environmentally friendly electric bicycles, Hygia, a hydraulic brake specialist, has developed an innovative solution to controlling the motor power under braking while providing better stopping power from increased weight and speed. The EA12 uses a hall sensor, rather than a conventional mechanical switch, which has a limited life and binary control. The EA12 is able to provide linear control of the motor under braking rather than cutting it out completely in the conventional manner. This, in turn, provides better power control to the motor, as well as extends battery and motor life.
