There are currently about 30 million electric bikes around the world, a number that alone explains the success of this intelligent bicycle that is ecological, economical, healthy and free of bureaucracy.

In recent years there has been a further evolution of this urban vehicle thanks to the introduction of lithium batteries, which has allowed to extend its range and make it lighter.

Today, electric bikes weigh little more than a normal bicycle, are equipped with a gearbox and for many the pedal assistance is adjustable, so that the cyclist can freely decide the exact effort to be impressed.
So if you are uphill or wearing clothing that is not suited to your sporting commitment, you can decide for a strong help of assisted cycling. On the other hand, if you are in a suit or want to proceed with a certain sporting spirit, we will be assisted in the slightest way.

Some of the electric bikes are foldable, so that you can sit comfortably in a trunk, this offers the opportunity to move the car from one city to another and enter the city center with the electric bike avoiding traffic and taking advantage of any bike paths.


Law n.14 of 3 February 2003, derived from European Directive 2002/24/EC, defines the parameters that distinguish the pedal assisted bicycle (also known as pedelec) falling into the category of cycles, from the motor bicycle that must be associated with the same regulation of mopeds.The pedal-assisted bicycle must be equipped with an auxiliary motor with power equal to or less than 0.25 kW, moreover, the propulsion of the motor must be interrupted both when the cyclist stops pedalling, and when the velocipede exceeds the speed of 25 Km / h. The pedal-assisted bicycle, if it meets these parameters falls into the category of velocipedes (just like the common bicycle) and therefore is not subject to various restrictions that we list below:

  • No driving licence required
  • It is not necessary to reach the age of majority
  • Does not need to be registered
  • No movement document required
  • Insurance cover is not required (however, it is suggested especially to those who use it in urban areas).
  • No helmet required (however recommended)
  • It is possible to cycle along the cycle paths
