The bike for speed junkies
Strictly speaking, we leave the area of bicycles here and come to the mopeds. The S-pedelecs, also called Swiss class, work in principle exactly the same way as their namesakes. On the ordinary e-bike, the motor supports pedaling power exactly until the speedometer reaches 25 kilometers per hour. The faster S models, on the other hand, don't stop until they reach 45 km/h. They therefore have no place on bike paths and belong on the road. Riders need a class M driver's license. Helmet and insurance requirements apply
Unlike the pedelec, the motor of an e-bike works even when the rider is not pedaling. In the smallest class up to 20 km/h, the same regulations apply as for a normal bicycle. Models that go up to 25 or 45 kilometers per hour are treated like S-pedelecs - i.e.: mandatory helmet, mandatory insurance, class M driver's license. If you have any questions about the individual classifications, please feel free to contact us at any time!
