Power and maximum speed are determined by the firmware that is loaded onto the Gocycle.
During initial setup and if you enter setup again, it is possible to choose firmware appropriate for your region:
- USA Type 1 – Maximum speed = 20mph, pedalling required, throttle only not available.
- USA Type 2 – Maximum speed = 20mph, pedalling required and throttle only available.
- EU EPAC – Maximum speed = 25kmph, pedalling required.
Electric bicycle regulations relating to speed, motor power, pedal and throttle controls vary throughout the world.
Please consult your local electric bicycle regulations before downloading the appropriate firmware for your region.
For more information please see the following video: GocycleConnect App.
We are continually working to review and improve Gocycle and Gocycle-related products and to ensure that all products conform to applicable international safety standards and legislation.
As more legislation becomes clear or changes, we will release new firmware to suit that legislation.
