Voltage Sag

On all models, the battery level may drop under heavy load (high throttle/PAS) and recover after 'resting.' This is not a cause for concern. It primarily occurs if using a lot of power (high PAS, riding uphill, riding into the wind). Given some time and less demand for power, it will level out. To get the most accurate report: power cycle the ebike (turn the display on and off) or check the LED indicator on the battery itself.

Core-5, Turris, 500 Series, Portola, and Cafe Cruiser Displays

The battery readouts in the display are based on a 5-bar system. Riders can set the voltage for each bar so that when the bike is at or above that voltage, it will show the desired amount of bars. This video shows how to adjust these numbers.

700 Series, Rift, and LMT'D Displays

This display video will explain what to do if you are not receiving accurate battery readouts from your display. One of the most helpful tools is to change your readout from 'Percent' to 'Voltage,' as this will provide an exact number of the battery's charge. It will still be subject to some 'voltage sag.'

48V Battery Pack

  1. 41.0V
  2. 44.0V
  3. 46.5V
  4. 48.0V
  5. 51.0V

We recommend these numbers above because they will more accurately reference the battery voltage as a percentage. Batteries on these bikes will have a peak voltage of 52v and a minimum usable voltage of around 41.5V.

Prodigy, Roadster V2, Gravel Roadster V2 and CF Racer 1

The battery power on these bikes is represented by five levels, indicating the battery's current charge level and capacity. If the battery power falls below a certain threshold, the battery icon's frame will flash to remind riders to charge their device.
