The Precedence Present is powered by a nominally 500W mid-drive motor.

Nonetheless, the corporate lists the motor at an insane 148 Nm (108 lb-ft) of torque, which makes me suppose that 500W quantity might be coyly low.

It’s anybody’s guess what the true energy is, however suffice it to say that 148 Nm of torque means this bike ought to have some critical pull, providing quick acceleration and flattening even the hardest of hills.

The pedal-assist bike comes with a prime pace of 20 mph (32 km/h), however provides customers the choice to unlock it to achieve speeds of 28 mph (45 km/h). That will flip it from a Class 1 e-bike right into a Class 3 e-bike within the US.

And in a transfer that belt-drive followers will rejoice over, Precedence geared up the Present with a Gates belt drive system. Using belt drive means there’s no greasy chain, no transmission noise, and nearly no upkeep.

As an alternative of an old school derailleur, the Precedence Present makes use of an Enviolo internally geared hub with an enormous 380% gear vary.
