The electronically adjustable pedal generator in the TWIKE 5 mutates from a range extender to a life extender. Because "regular physical activity lowers the risk of chronic diseases, contributes to mental well-being and reduces mortality", according to unanimous scientific articles on the subject.
In the original days of the TWIKE 3, the saving of up to 15% in electrical energy consumption was more likely to reduce range anxiety, but in the TWIKE 5, the electronic evaluation of the athletic contribution will put more focus on the physical fitness of its users.
The display of the respective power output, the cadence and also the balancing of the energy output over time, enables the user to tailor a training programme to his or her needs, prevents overload and motivates health-promoting pedalling.
The pedal system is ergonomically optimised with the seat position and the side-stick steering arrangement, and the coaster pedal is connected to the hydraulic braking system. As with the pedal system of the TWIKE 3, which has been in use for a quarter of a century, it is not absolutely necessary to pedal in order to go forward. However, the feedback in the display and the electronically optimised resistance will entice you even more to make a sporty contribution.
