Modular E-bike Architecture with Intelligent Vehicle Control Box
The Acer ebii is a unique e-bike, featuring a modular design that integrates the battery pack and control box into a single intelligent vehicle control box. This innovative design allows for easy maintenance, simple charging, and seamless upgradability, all within a sleek and efficient package.
The bike’s motor is highly efficient, delivering 250/350 W with 48 V CAN bus and 40 Nm torque performance. This allows for assisted riding of up to 25 kilometers per hour, with the option to configure the wheel set as a front, center, or rear hub, depending on the rider’s preferences.
Smart Features for Adaptive Riding
The bike comes equipped with the AI-powered ebiiAssist function, which adapts to the rider’s pedaling power and preferred level of assistance. Over time, this function intelligently adjusts to provide a more personalized riding experience. During rides, the controller uses AI technology to automatically adjust motor output, making the experience effortless based on the rider’s pedaling and route environment.
The ebii e-bike’s AI utilizes big data and collects user insights through the ebiiGO app. Riders can connect their phone via Bluetooth to access recommended routes, battery life, riding speed, auto-unlock settings, and more.
The ebiiRide app works with ebiiAssist to ensure riders never run out of power with three modes to choose from: Eco Mode for power-saving, My ebii Mode for smart balance, and Boost Mode for speed and motor output adjustments based on the current road conditions and distance to the destination.
The ebii boasts a long-lasting and removable battery that can go up to 110 km and fully charge in only 2.5 hours. With AI-optimized power distribution, you can ride all day without worrying about running out of battery.
The battery is designed with MPS Energy’s high-integrity structure, complete with a unique cell layout and holder for added charge protection and safety. It’s also undergone rigorous testing and certification approvals for maximum reliability and security.
ebiiGO’s battery pack is not only removable, but it can also be used as a portable charger for other devices. Its handle design makes it easy to carry around, and riders can monitor the battery’s power supply through ebiiGO or the smart LED display on the handlebars. Receive alerts on remaining travel time and other important information.
Riding with Safety Features
Riders of Acer’s ebii e-bike can now confidently hit the road, thanks to its advanced safety features. The bike’s headlight and taillight automatically light up at night, with additional lighting under the control box for added visibility.
A Rear Collision Warning radar sensor is also mounted under the seat to notify riders of approaching motorists or objects from behind. The crash detection and e-bike health status notification features also provide peace of mind and enhance trip planning during travels.
The ebii is a compact and lightweight electric bike designed to provide a stable and nimble riding experience. With its sturdy aluminum alloy frame, weighing just 16 kg, it is optimized for easy maneuvering.
The ebii’s sleek design features smooth edges and a cool matte white finish that catches the eye. The semi-transparent headlight and LED display add a modern touch, making it easy for riders to navigate to their destinations.
Hassle-free and Sustainable
The ebii’s airless tires are safe for high-speed riding, with multilayer foam inserts that recreate the feeling of moving through the wind and eliminate flat tire worries. Sustainability is a key feature of these tires, which are made from closed-loop recyclable The e-bike’s durability is further enhanced by a rust-free, carbon belt drive that requires no lubrication for maintenance. The battery pack is removable, which allows for easy battery swapping and upgrades without having to replace the entire bike structure.
