Electric Assist has a rear hub motor, meaning the motor is integrated into the back wheel. These motors are fantastic for their reliability and workhorse nature, however are considered ‘old’ technology.

Electric Plus comes with an integrated mid drive motor. This is integrated into the bike’s bottom bracket and is a much more efficient motor. As a result it offers around twice the power of a hub drive motor.
