In a systematic energy flow comparison, a grid-charged battery driving a fat tire electric motor will provide mechanical energy about ten times more efficiently than a human eating a typical diet. For personal travel between 5 and 30 miles per day,
The fat tire electric bicycle help in making the environment more safe and prevent global Warming.
1. Hill Climbing
That may sound obvious, but it’s the primary advantage. A good fat electric bike effectively flattens hills, increasing your average speed and eliminating the ‘groan’ factor when a gradient comes into view.
Provided you supply a reasonable amount of effort, you can expect to climb hills of 1 in 10 (10%) on an electric bike with ease, and clear a maximum gradient of 1 in 7 (14%), or much more. In a hilly country, the effect is nothing short of miraculous.
It sounds unlikely, doesn’t it? But the mathematics is compelling. Think of a steep and busy road, with cars climbing at 30mph. If you previously slogged up the hill at 6mph, but can tackle the same gradient at 12mph with an electric bike, you will see 33% fewer cars, and they will pass you at 18mph rather than 24mph.
