City Mode is the default mode on your Gocycle. In City Mode the rider has ample support from the motor. Use this mode if you want plenty of motor assist, with a little reduction in range.
City Mode utilises your Gocycle’s torque sensor, which detects the pedal input from the rider. The motor assistance level is controlled by rider pedal input:
Harder pedalling = higher motor assistance
Softer pedalling = less motor assistance
The mode setting can be seen in the Gocycle Connect App:
In City mode, the motor will start to assist when the rider pedals 100W or higher. The motor will give full assist when the rider pedals 250W or higher.
In this mode, the motor will start automatically when a rider pedals, and will continue to operate until the maximum speed is reached.
Above the maximum speed for motor assistance, the motor will stop. When the pedals cease to rotate or with reduced pedal input, the motor will also stop.
You can get maximum motor assistance when moving by:
Gocycles G2, GS and GX: press and hold the red button by the left hand grip
Gocycles G3, G3 Carbon and GXi: rotate and hold the left twist switch “wrist down”
