What's the anatomy of an e-bike?


A couple of important components and a few accessory components make up an e-bike. Although you do not necessarily need to know how all of these components function to enjoy a breezy ride on your new electric bike, it is crucial that you learn the basics. This article will cover just that.

Electric motor

Simply put, the electric motor will translate electrical energy from an e-bike's battery into mechanical power that will move the bike. The motor of an e-bike can be located in different places, depending on the bike you purchase. E-bike motors can be geared or direct drive; this means that they can be small with a modest output, big, or heavy and powerful.

Lithium-ion batteries

The battery of an e-bike is its energy source that powers the bike, and it is usually the most expensive part. Most modern e-bikes come with lithium-ion batteries, which are known to last long and offer a lot of power. For example, the Mokwheel e-bikes have 16Ah lithium-ion batteries of 768W capacity. This means that the battery will last you up to 45 miles on a full charge.

Brake system

An important part of every e-bike is the brake system. You need to feel safe when riding your bike, and if your brakes are not reliable, that can cause a problem. Mokwheel e-bikes offer the 180mm disc brake that delivers incredible braking power and works great in wet weather. It is super easy to control, which every e-bike lover can appreciate.

Tires and seating

The type of tires your e-bike has will affect the comfort of your ride on certain terrain. You need an e-bike with tires suitable for all types of terrain that can perform well at higher speeds. In addition, you should pay attention to the seating. Many e-bikes do not offer comfortable seats, which can cause discomfort in the long run.

This is why Mokwheel e-bikes offer a comfortable and supportive seat for all their bikes. Their seats have an ergonomic design and are perfectly cushioned to make you feel comfortable during your ride. In addition, Mokwheel e-bikes come with large all-purpose tires that will reduce the overall pressure and offer a safe and smooth riding experience.


This is one of the main parts of an electric bike, known as the "brain of the e-bike". The controller will control the speed of the motor (start and stop). It is connected to other electronic parts, such as the motor, battery, throttle, PAS, display, and other speed sensors. The core function of an e-bike controller is to take all the information of the electric components and determine what to signal in return.


An odometer is very important because it gives you all the information about your riding experience. With Mokwheel e-bikes, you can expect an LCD Odometer that will display all the functions, including speed display, battery power, power-assisted system, and other functions. The Mokwheel odometer lets you change technical and functional settings, and it is very easy to understand.

Pay attention to the details of your new e-bike!

It is crucial that you research the components of the e-bike, before you purchase it. For example, what kind of throttle does your e-bike offer? Did you know that the twist-style throttle is much easier to control than the thumb-throttle? This is yet another perk of Mokwheel e-bikes. As you can see, there are many things to consider before you make a purchase.
