- How does the LightSpeed Electric Bicycle work?
An LightSpeed electric bike works in three different ways.
The first way is purely mechanical, in which only human effort is involved.
The second way is called ‘pedelec’, a fine blend of human and electrical effort; i.e. the motor supports you during pedalling and? makes your pedalling smoother.
The third way an electric bike can work is purely on electric power from the battery; i.e. the motor does all the work in propelling the LightSpeed Electric Bicycle
- Why should I ride the LightSpeed Electric Bicycle?

With the contrasting ranges offered by these LightSpeed Electric Bicycles, you can go further, and faster in an eco-friendly way. You can use an LightSpeed Electric Bicycle for fitness as well as for personal mobility option.
It is more than just a ride; it’s an experience that will make you smile with every mile!
- How is an LightSpeed Electric Bicycle different from an electric scooter (or any other electric two-wheeler)?
An LightSpeed Electric Bicycle is not made for indolent individuals who prefer a zero effort commute option over pedalling.Even though an LightSpeed Electric Bicycle comes with a throttle, the optimum way to use it involves more than simply throttling on like you would with an electric scooter. The point of an LightSpeed Electric Bicycle is to engage more actively with one’s ride. The electric mechanisms in an LightSpeed Electric Bicycle are just there to smoothen the overall pedalling.
Also, a typical electric two-wheeler is bulkier than an LightSpeed Electric Bicycle. An LightSpeed Electric Bicycle is more advanced, comfortable, and economical than any other electric two-wheeler.
- What is a pedal boost sensor?
A pedal boost sensor is a sensor that detects the pedalling rate in an LightSpeed Electric Bicycle. Using these sensors, the PBS system makes the motor spin according to the levels of Pedal Boost you set. Generally, a PBS system consists of a set number of magnets. For example, Dryft and Glyd LightSpeed Electric Bicycles come with 12 magnet sensors.
- Can I ride my bike in the rain?
Yes! The LightSpeed Electric Bicycles are rated IP65 which means they are wash-down capable, dust-proof, and waterproof.
- Do I need a license to ride an LightSpeed Electric Bicycle?
No. The reason is quite clear. LightSpeed restricts the maximum speed on their LightSpeed Electric Bicycles to 25 kmph, so you do not need a license to ride a LightSpeed.
- What is the cost of running an LightSpeed Electric Bicycle?
It takes a total of 0.5 units of electricity to charge an LightSpeed Electric Bicycle’s battery fully. An LightSpeed Electric Bicycle is quite economical; it runs at a rate of 6 paise per kilometre.
- I have seen cheaper LightSpeed Electric Bicycles, what’s the difference?
LightSpeed Electric Bicycles come equipped with better quality components that make them robust, tough and reliable. The better component quality and better electronic system makes LightSpeed Electric Bicycles a little more expensive, but worth a few thousands more.
- What is the difference between a Basic Display and a Multi-Feature Dynamic Display?
A Basic Display is designed to show only two important pieces of information — the battery status and the level of pedal assistance (Glyd comes with a Basic Display).
On the other hand, a Multi-Feature Dynamic Display shows you more than battery statuses and pedal assistance levels. It features the temperature, speed of the vehicle, distance traversed, and a lot more. A Multi-Feature Dynamic Display can be password protected, making your readings personal to you. It also shows status messages like Cruise Control, Walk Assist, and displays Fault Code in case of any malfunction.
Resistant and robust as the rest of the frame, the Multi-Feature Dynamic Display (available in Dryft) can sustain a wide range of temperature and weather situations, making your LightSpeed Electric Bicycle look good as new for longer.
