The battery from which the motors are supplied with energy is located in the vertical tube of the frame, which supports the saddle, and has a capacity of 360Wh. The brand announces a total autonomy with a load of 120 kilometers, although this is taking into account that the bike comes standard with two batteriesso the real autonomy with each module will be 60 kilometers (an optimistic figure, however, given the joint power of the two electric motors.

The transmission remains in the hands of a system that works through a torque sensorwhich automatically adjusts the force to be exerted by the cyclist, so there is no traditional speed and chain change, but instead there is only a single gear and a carbon toothed belt.
