Until now, almost all pedelecs (pedal electric cycles) have been equipped with parallel hybrid drives with a mechanical connection between the pedal and the drive wheel. Serial hybrid drives leave this high-maintenance coupling out, but give cyclists a very unnatural feel during the ride. The serial hybrid EE-SpeedBike by IAI GmbH overcomes this disadvantage. Thanks to the smart control strategy, developed with dSPACE tools, it delivers a highly authentic ride.
