Speed Pedelecs – elctrc

Known as a “speed pedelecs”, these are traditional looking bicycles, with some key differences.  Firstly, they allows the power to offer assistance all the way up to 45kph (28mph).  All the components – including brakes, wheels, forks and frame – are approved for these higher speeds.  There are various other mandatory differences. For example, a speed pedelec must have a mirror, daytime running lights etc.

However, the biggest differences are legislative.  The UK doesn’t (yet) have a speed pedelec category, so they’re categorised as mopeds.  This means that a speed pedelec must be registered with DVLA, must be Taxed, must have a valid MOT (if required) and the rider must be licenced and Insured.
