Area 13 - Electric Bikes that are out of this world.

Hit The Throttle and Go! | EP 29

Posted by on


Hey, Everybody! Welcome back to another episode of the Bolton Ebikes Podcast. I want to teach you something new about electric bikes today. So let's jump into another episode this time about something that is a little bit unique. I want to talk about throttles because I feel like that's a subject that doesn't get covered very often.

Especially by the major brands because they don't even have them. So let's get into it once again. I'm Kyle,  the owner of Bolton Ebikes. Welcome to the Bolton eBikes Podcast.

So throttles for electric bikes. How do they work? What do they do? What types are there? Why don't some ebikes even come with a throttle? Those are all great questions to have. And I wanted to dedicate a specific episode to this, just to try and clear up some of the confusion on the different types.

In this episode, you’ll get answers to questions and topics like: 

  • The difference between twist throttles and thumb throttles and how that can work concurrently with the PAS. 
  • How fast can you go on just the throttle without pedaling?
  • The difference between the classes of ebikes.
  • Can the throttle be moved to the other side to accommodate the rider?
  • The science behind what happens when the throttle is engaged.
  • And much more insight into throttles and how they work.

And that's a really, really easy way to test it and make sure you have one that's working. Last week, I released the Sabre bike, which I'm so excited about. Orders are already coming in for it. If you haven't checked that out, just be aware that I'm giving one of those away.

So if you want to win a 1000 watt 26 inch Fat Tire Step Thru Ebike, you have a chance to do that right now because the giveaway is running for about 10 days. So. If you heard it last week on the podcast that it was coming. Now you should know, hope that you're on my email list. If you're not, go to and get on it! I'll send you an email back with a link for the giveaway page, but make sure you go check out that video that I’ll link below. 

Thanks for listening. Thanks for watching my videos on YouTube as well. I do appreciate all of you. I'm Kyle from Bolton Ebikes. I am grateful that we could be here today to learn something new about electric bikes. And I can't wait to come back for another podcast episode next week.
