Cruise Control is a feature that may be used to maintain a certain desired speed without engaging the throttle or Pedal Assist.
To activate the Cruise Control function, first, use the throttle or pedal assist to reach your desired speed. Then push and hold the Assist Down button for 2 seconds. Once the “C” graphic appears on your screen, release the Assist Down button. Your speed will be maintained without the need to pedal or use the throttle.
To deactivate the Cruise Control function, you have three options.
- Apply the brakes by squeezing the brake lever.
- Apply the throttle.
- Push the Assist Up or Assist Down button.
Important notes about the Cruise Control function:
Cruise Control is considered a type of throttle and is limited to a maximum controllable speed of 20 mph in accordance with regulations. If the Cruise Control is set above 20 mph, the default will be set at 20 mph. Your bike will then decelerate to that speed. The minimum speed for Cruise Control is 10mph.
The pedal assist is still available when Cruise Control is active. It may be possible to pedal the e-bike faster than the set cruise speed. The cruise will automatically resume if the speed is allowed to decrease to the preset Cruise Control speed.
If more power is needed to maintain the set speed, such as when climbing a hill or encountering a headwind, more power will be automatically applied to maintain your preset speed. If the resistance is too high for the system to maintain the preset speed, the speed will be limited by the capability of the motor.
