HP Velotechnik Gekko Conversion Kit
Convert your HP Velotechnik Gekko to electric
- Pedal-assist extension Cable
- Locking parking brake levers
- Topeak Bar X-tender
- Extra-long rack struts
- Axiom Journey rear rack (for 9 and 20ah batteries) or 2-tier rear rack for 10ah batteries
- MTB bar-end for mounting throttle offset from handlebars to clear bar-end shifter derailleur cable (used on some models - others have twist-grip shifters and don't need this)
- *Newer models use external bearing bottom-brackets that require special considerations and parts for fitting PAS sensors and magnets. Contact us with questions. The default configuration is our normal left-side mount PAS system for square-taper bottom brackets. Please contact us and send pictures if you have an external bearing crankset and we can arrange special parts for you like in the photo below. Not sure? check out Pedal Assist Compatibility
The mountain bike bar-end allows mounting the throttle near the bar-end shifter but keeps the derailleur cables from interfering with the throttle:
E-BikeKit™ Rear 500w Geared Hub Motor Conversion Kit
with 48 Volt Li-ion Battery Pack and Charger
The E-BikeKit 500-1000w geared conversion kit is powered by an internal 5:1 planetary gear hub motor with clutch. The clutch in the geared motor offers zero drag when pedaling and not engaging battery power. This motor is more efficient, resulting in increased range (especially with "start/stop" riding), has more starting torque, and has greater hill-climbing ability than a Direct-Drive motor of equal power rating. The motor is also smaller in diameter for increased stealth and 3.4lbs lighter than the 500w direct-drive.
Who's it for? This premium electric bike conversion kit system is for those that want the best of the best in performance, efficiency, weight, stealth and speed. Top speed is 26MPH! There is a 300lb total load limit so if you plan on more than that, look to a heavy-duty system.
Watts: (Nominal/Peak): 500-1000w (EBK 22amp controller)
Top Speed: Approx. 26 MPH @48v in 26" wheel
Range: 10-44 Miles *(see battery chart)
Charge Time: 3-5hrs (0-100%) (depending on battery choice)
Weight: 21lbs (9.5kgs)
Stealth Factor: High
Lithium batteries provide a high level of performance for the duration of each discharge (unlike seal lead-acid where performance is diminished 1:1 as the pack is emptied).Lithium batteries have a much higher power to weight ratio than lead-acid and 5-8 times the number of charge cycles (how many times a rechargeable battery can be charged from 0-100%). The lithium option costs more initially ,but over time, the "cost-per-cycle" is about half the cost of lead-acid. Lithium packs also require less care as they can be left partially charged, and do not require immediate charging after each use. All batteries MUST be properly cared for during storage.
Battery Choice: We offer 3 battery packs for this kit - the 9ah Li-Ion Shrink Wrapped battery is the lightest and smallest, at just 5.8lbs. The 20ah Li-Ion Shrink Wrapped battery is the longest lasting, with a 20-44 mile range. The 10ah Li-Ion Aluminum Case battery sports a rugged enclosure, carrying handle, and locks in place with a key.
|48v 9ah Shrink Wrapped||5.8lbs||10-22||Battery bag with velcro straps (included, rack not included)||Base Cost|
|48v 10ah Alu||9.7lbs||12-26||Rear Rack (included)||+$230|
|48v 20ah Shrink Wrapped||14lbs||20-44||Battery bag with velcro straps (included, rack not included)||+$380|
Choosing Your Wheel Size: You can find your wheel size written on your tire. Available size options for this conversion kit are: 20", 24", 26". Acceptable tire widths for the E-BikeKit rims: 1.15"(29mm) - 2.25"(57mm).
Note: our kits include parts to fit a wide variety of bikes, but do not fit every bike without modification or extra parts. Our representatives are available to help with compatibility questions and make recommendations on additional parts that you may need.
Shipping Note: Li-ion batteries are shipped separately from electric bike kits. Li-ion battery packs are shipped via FedEx Hazmat and are require a signature for delivery. You may receive your kit, battery and possibly the battery rack (if applicable), on separate days.
