Much like its 36 Volt brother, the 500 Watt / 48 Volt eBike has serious grunt for any of the frame styles. The biggest advantage of the 48 Volts is that it extends the range any bike can travel, often by over 10 miles. The consequential disadvantage is that the 48 Volt batteries need more time to fully charge, often in the 4 to 6 hour range.
As with the 36 Volt configuration, this is considered the “Standard” for a higher end intermediate eBike. Most people will be very satisfied with this drivetrain.
