The BOSTON is a robust electric city bike with a traditional Dutch design. With the BOSTON, you will make your way through the city with ease. Often faster for short distances, and always healthier, than by car or scooter. Making the BOSTON the ultimate city bike.
Due to the aluminum frame, the bike is durable and lightweight, allowing you to also cycle without pedal assistance if you want to do so. The bike has front and rear lights and reflective tires for a safe ride in the dark. The handlebars and saddle are height adjustable to provide your most comfortable position.
You can expand the BOSTON with a front or rear rack, found here. Steco specially designed both these racks for the WATT BOSTON. The rear carrier has a load capacity of over 25 KG, making it easy and safe to mount a child seat. Additionally, the BOSTON has connection points for a lock. The standard double kickstand allows you to park your bicycle anywhere in the city quickly.
Up to 25 KM per hour assistance
The BOSTON has a 250 WATT electric motor in its rear axle, and a speed sensor in the bottom bracket to regulate the drive. The engine has 5 levels of support to a maximum of 25 km per hour assistance. The modes are preset but can be adjusted according to your preferences with the help of this manual. We have used a gear ratio of 2.75 to be able to cycle smoothly at a higher speed. Cycling or accelerating is, therefore, theoretically heavier, but because of the electric engine, you will barely notice.
The bike is powered by a 36V - 10.5AH lithium battery developed by Samsung. To charge your bike, you will use a charger that connects to the bike itself, comparable to charging your mobile phone. Charging an empty battery takes about 3 hours. The average battery life is about three years or up to 500 charging cycles. Keep in mind that the range can decrease after that. Replacing the battery is easy. You can do this yourself or have it done by a bicycle repairer shop. Follow the steps from the installation video.
40 to 70 KM Range
How far you can cycle with a full battery (the range) depends on several factors. It depends on your weight, the level of assistance, and cycling conditions. For example, with strong headwind and support level 5, the range is smaller than on a flat road and support level 1. In general, you can assume that you can cover a distance between 40 and 70 kilometers. More than enough for daily trips in the city.
Easy to maintain
To fully enjoy your new bicycle, it is essential to maintain it properly. We have developed a bike without unnecessary extras. You can easily perform maintenance yourself.
