The battery is in the classic position where the bottle used to be. Thanks to different assistance programs, the biker can choose how much to work with his thighs. Pedaling assistance can also be completely disabled, perhaps downhill or on flat stretches where the cyclist wants to do everything alone! On aelectric bicycle, the engine becomes essential when there is a climb.
