The XC comes equipped with 3 pedal assist levels: ECO, NORM, HIGH (also referred to as: ECO, TRAIL and BOOST).
To use the electric assist, begin by powering the bike on with your feet off the pedals. Note: If your feet are resting on the pedals, even just a tiny bit, when you turn the drive system on, the torque sensor will not be functioning correctly and the drive unit assist will not work.
- Set the level of pedal assist with your thumb by using the ergonomic 2 button controller located near the left grip on your handlebars.
- The display will register the level of assist: ECO means a small amount of assist, HIGH or BOOST means you barely have to pedal.
In addition to Assist Mode, the display shows Battery Charge Level, Speed, Distance, Total Mileage, Riding Time and Estimated Range. For more guidance on the display, view the manual included with your bike.
NOTE: The XC has a maximum assisted speed of 20 mph.
