The Gocycle connect app allows you to choose your riding mode as well as create custom modes to suit your riding preferences.
Once connected to the Gocycle, you can change the riding mode by pressing the ‘Select Mode’ button in the bottom right of the screen.
Default Ride Modes
The default modes are City, Eco, On Demand and City+. You can select these modes by tapping on the icons at the top of the screen. The graph below will change, showing you how these modes look. Click the links below for a detailed explanation of each mode:
You cannot change the default modes. The app shows you how the modes look, so you can build you own custom modes.
Custom Ride Modes
We recommend trying the Gocycle first in the default modes, getting a feel for how they affect the ride. You can then fine-tune the modes to suit your needs by making a custom mode.
You can move the points on the graph in any mode to start making your own custom mode:
- The lower slider shows how hard you must pedal (in Watts) to start the motor assistance.
- The upper slider shows how hard you must pedal (in Watts) to gain full (100%) motor assistance.
- The closer you place the sliders to the left, the easier it is to get assistance. The further the sliders to the right more effort is needed.
- You can swipe up to reveal further settings below the graph. Here you can adjust the top speed of motor assistance. In some states of the USA, you can also toggle if pedalling is required for motor assistance on or off.
Once you are happy with your custom mode press ‘Sync to Gocycle’. The custom icon flash to confirm it has been set to the Gocycle
You can now save your custom mode as a preset by pressing the ‘Save as Preset’ button at the bottom of the screen.
Deleting Custom Modes
