The Vida E+ delivers an excellent riding experience, and is easy to live with, too! Giant's SyncDrive Life mid-mounted electric motor is helpful when tackling hilly rides or long distances (or both!). Five levels of assistance can be selected on the RideControl One handlebar controller, depending on the demands of the terrain. There's even an Auto Assist mode that will select the right level of power for you. The Vida E+ isn't a "throttle twister" e-bike, but a power assist e-bike that can help you enjoy more of the outdoors. The Vida E+ is limited to 20mph; going faster will simply cut power to the SyncDrive motor until you go below 20mph again.
Momentum builds the Vida E+'s frame and fork with their own ALUXX-Grade aluminum, keeping overall strength high for improved power delivery and handling. The fit of the Vida E+ is more upright with a stable handling quality, making it easy to fit a wider range of riders and experience levels. The step-through model of the Vida E+ makes mounting and dismounting at stoplights and stop signs easy! The motor's battery is mounted within the oversized down tube of the frame, and can be removed for recharging. There's even a plug in the down tube for on-board recharging. The 500Wh battery will offer a long range, and will fully charge in roughly 3 hours.
The Vida E+ is still equipped like a regular bicycle designed for commutes, errands and rides in the countryside. Tektro's M275 hydraulic disc brakes make every stop simpler and more predictable, even in wet and rainy conditions. Gear changes are even easier, thanks to a 7-speed Shimano Nexus internally geared rear hub. With a Nexus hub, you can change gears at a standstill if you want! Aluminum wheels are wrapped with grippy 26x2.35" tires, delivering a smooth ride over pavement and hardpan. An upright alloy handlebar and stem is paired with a comfy Selle Royal Essenza saddle, bringing a user-friendly cockpit to the Vida E+.
