Electric Bike Pedal Assist System

Yes, SCOTT only sells E-Bikes with pedal assist. This means that if you don’t pedal, the pedal assist will not activate. This assistance goes generally from +50% of additional power to +300% depending on the mode.

How To Wash An E-bike?

  1. As an E-Bike is water resistant you can wash it as you would wash a normal bike.
  2. Remove the major part of the dirt with a water-jet (never use a high-pressure car washer)
  3. With a soft brush and with the aid of a bike cleaner (bike specific, do not use car or motorbike products), clean the remaining dirt
  4. Once it’s done, rinse the bike with water to remove the washing fluid (never use a high-pressure car washer)
  5. When the bike is clean, turn the bike upside down during few seconds in order to remove standing water, then wipe off the bike.
  6. We recommend to wipe the electrical contact plates of the battery afterwards as well
  7. To finish, lubricate the chain with bike specific chain lube
