- Why does the Pendix only support me up to 25 km/h?
For pedelecs the maximum speed of 25 km/h is prescribed by law. Therefore you do not need a driving licence or additional insurance.
- Do I have to pay attention to something in traffic with the pedelec?
According to § 1 paragraph 3 of the German Road Traffic Act (StVG) pedelecs are considered as bicycles and you do not need a minimum age or a driving licence to use them. You don't need to take out additional insurance cover such as third party liability and the use of cycle paths is permitted. Pendix requires a minimum age of 14 years for safety reasons. There is no obligation to wear a helmet, but we recommend that you wear a bicycle helmet.
- Will the Pendix eDrive fit my bicycle?
The Pendix eDrive fits almost every standard bicycle. There are only a few requirements that your bicycle has to fulfil for the attachment. Here you can find the installation requirements. All Pendix dealers can also tell you very quickly whether the Pendix eDrive is compatible with your bicycle. Here you can find the dealer search.
- How long is the warranty on my Pendix eDrive?
The warranty period for the Pendix eDrive is 2 years from the date of installation for end customers. The exact warranty conditions can be found in our AGBs.
- Where can I test the Pendix eDrive?
Use the Pendix Dealer Locator to select a dealer near you and request a test drive. In the dealer search, pay attention to the note "Test bike available".
- What does "barely noticeable pedaling resistance" mean when switched off?
You can continue to use your bike as a bicycle and only switch the Pendix on when you need assistance, for example on the mountain. Since the Pendix emachine works without a gearbox, there is no mechanical friction which would lead to a high pedalling resistance. The resistance is only about 6 watts, similar to a hub dynamo.
