Using the ELFEi E-Bike Conversion Kit, you can easily convert your old bicycle into an electric bicycle. The powerful 250W brushless ELFEi front motor made by Bafang with planetary gearing and the latest sensorless technology takes you up to a top speed of 25 km/h (EU-version) or 16 mph (US-version).
While with the EU-version the motor does only support the driver when pedalling (PAS – pedal assisted system), the US-version can work without the PAS sensor, only with a throttle. Of course it is possible to ride faster, but only when you are pedalling faster, because at the rated top speed, the motor softly cuts off. Unlikely most other cheap motors the ELFEi motor does have a 6-hole disc brake mount.
New: ELFEi Conversion Kit in improved V2 version
To make the conversion to a e-bike as simple as possible, no electric brake cutoff switsches are needed with the V2 version of ELFEi Front Conversion Kit. The new ELFEi V2 controller react as quick that the motor support is stopped within just 0.5 seconds after you quitted pedaling. With these enhancements it is no longer necessary to remodell the entire brake system.
ELFEi V2 Controller:
||The ELFEi controller mounts very easily and stealth to the bike frame due to its integrated mounting rail and powers the motor with 36V and a maximum current of 15A. This controller is completely waterproof and thanks to the new EB-Bus System there are no cable tangle anymore. The EB-Bus System connects the thumb throttle and the LED or LCD display to the controller with only one plug. This allows a very discreet cable management with only one cable to the handlebar, only there the cable splits. This is the professional way to a clean looking e-bike conversion. The thumb throttle is used as a start-up to 6 km / h and can also be easily removed if not needed.
ELFEi PAS sensor: can be mounted easily and without tools
The included PAS sensor detects the driver's pedaling and gives the engine the signal for assistance. The sensor can be mounted easily and without tools, an extension of the crank or the bottom bracket is no longer necessary. The magnetic disk is divided into 2 halves to make it easy to put on the bottom bracket axle. The new ELFEi PAS sensor is bonded by very strong double sided automotive adhesive tape to the frame. To prevent accidental insertion of the motor when pedaling backward, the ELFEi V2 Front Conversion Kit comes exclusively with PAS sensor with two Hall sensors.
Available with LED or LCD control panel
By default, the ELFEi V2 Front Conversion Kit is supplied with an LED keypad. Furthermore you can turn the complete system on and off via a switch on the control panel. By pressing a button you can choose between the five available levels of support and on the basis of 4 LEDs , the battery level is visible at any time.
Optionally a much more comfortable LCD Display with advanced features is available. The digitial ELFEi LCD Display informs you about battery level, choosen assist level and a couple of other values. The operating device is seperated from the display to be adequate for both left-handed and right-handed drivers. Of course you can adjust brightness, so that you have optimal vivibility during day and night. Another feature of the ELFEi LCD Display is the integrated diagnostic mode.
Following values can be displayed by the ELFEi LCD Display:
- Battery level
- Choosen assist level
- Actual speed
- Average speed
- Maximum speed
- Over all distance
- Diagnostic mode
|To Make our ELFEi V2 Conversion Kits as functional and safe as possible, a waterproof connector is mounted already 10cm after the cord exits from the engine. In this way, you can remove the wheel easily, without having to dismantle all motor cable to the controller.
Also for the connectors for the battery pack, we rely on waterproof connectors from the automotive sector, in order to avoid short circuits or malfunction in bad weather. You will find these improvements exclusively on ELFEi E-Bike Conversion Kits from www.ebike-easy.com.
Optional: ELFEi Lithium-Ion Battery
We recommend the 36V ELFEi Lithium-Ion Battery as the best powerpack for the ELFEi Conversion Kit. The ELFEi batteries are made from high quality Panasonic 18650 cells, which deliver a great performance at a very light weight of only 2.3 kg. These batteries have a very compact size and look pretty unremarkable on the bike. All ELFEi batteries are lockable in their bracket against theft and can either be loaded separately in the apartment or directly on the bike. A suitable charger with a charging capacity of 1200 mA is included.
The following battery models are available:
- ELFEi Lithium-Ion Standard Battery: the standard model for attachment to the seat post or at any other frame tube. Alternatively ELFEi also offers an adapter with which this battery can be mounted to the eyelets of the water bottle holder. Dimensions: 180mm x 123mm x 92mm (height x width x depth). Available with a capacity of 9 Ah (324 Wh) or as a long travel version with a capacity of 11.6 Ah (418 Wh)
- ELFEi Rear Rack Battery: This model can be used either directly in the double bottom of the separately sold ELFEi Rear Rack or it can be mounted with a retaining plate on an existing rack. Dimensions: 317mm x 148mm x 56mm (length x width x height). Available with a capacity of 9 Ah (324 Wh) or as a long travel version with a capacity of 11.6 Ah (418 Wh)
- ELFEi Water Bottle Battery: This model is attached directly to the eyelets for the bottle holder in the frame triangle. Dimensions: 88mm diameter, 325mm length. Available with a capacity of 9 Ah (324 Wh) or as a long travel version with a capacity of 11.6 Ah (418 Wh)
Optional: Motor laced into E-Bike rim
In case you don’t want to lace the motor by yourself, you can order a completely handbuild wheel. The motor will be laced into a special E-Bike rim by a professional wheel builder for an upcharge of only 85,- ¤. For our wheels we only use double eyed Rigida Sputnik alloy hollow rims for maximum durability.
You can choose your desired rim size (20”, 24”, 26” or 28”) as well as your preferred rim color (silver or black).
The ELFEi E-Bike Conversion Kit FRONT includes:
- brushless 250W ELFEi front motor made by Bafang with planetary gearing (optional laced into E-Bike rim)
- ELFEi controller (36V 15A) with EB-Bus System
