Velove Electric Cargo Bike Drive Train


The Drive Train

The Armadillo electric cargo bike has rear wheel drive. The hybrid power comes from your leg muscles and an electric motor. The power is neatly transferred to both rear wheels through an industry leading gear hub to a double freewheel.

Every Armadillo is equipped with a Rohloff speed hub. It delivers 14 gears, which results in an excellent gear ratio range of 526%. This gear hub is especially designed for heavy duty cargo bikes.

The electric assist is provided by the Bafang Max motor which delivers 80 Nm of torque and 250 watt nominal.

Lights and indicators

Lights and indicators are available as an option. The lights are powered by the main battery.
Indicators are controlled by convenient switches on top of the left handle. The hazard light function is started by pressing both indicator buttons at the same time. 

Brake lights automatically signal the rear traffic when you brake.

Batteries

The Armadillo is standardly delivered with one battery, which gives you a 25 to 40 km range. You can order extra batteries to increase the range. Every battery is delivered with its own charger.

The extra batteries can also be mounted on the frame with an optional battery mount. The extra battery mounts are not connected to the electric system, so you only use one battery at a time. The Armadillo can hold up to 6 batteries.

Spare wheel


Flat tyres happen when Murphy strikes. Luckily the Armadillo is prepared for that! All four wheels are interchangeable and fastened with a single bolt. The optional spare wheel comes assembled and consists of a rim, inner tube and puncture proof Schwalbe Marathon plus tyre. Skilled drivers replace their flat tyres in less than 2 minutes. The spare wheel is stored under the container where it is easily accessible even with a container on top.

Electric Cargo Bike Cyclist Essentials

The only tools you need for changing the wheel are an Allen key and some Loctite. You can order them with your Armadillo in a handy bag strapped on the back of the seat.
