When you activate the pedal assist mode on your Express e-bike, the motor will contribute to the effort you are putting into pedaling so that each revolution of the pedals gets a boost meaning you can ride faster, for longer periods and up hills with less effort.
You can select the level of assistant from 1- 5 using the display, with 5 being the highest and therefore the level that will drain the battery the fastest (ie. the higher the level of assistance = the less miles in the tank).
All Express bikes are fitted with a throttle - an intuitive thumb controller on the handlebars which activates the motor without pedaling, great for getting you started and gaining momentum or if you just don't feel like pedaling, but remember that riding using only the throttle will use the battery juice faster than using pedal assist.

We recommend regular tune-ups (brakes, derailleur, tires) to keep your beautiful Express in tip-top condition.
We advise ensuring that your tires are always kept at the optimum pressure, low pressure tires can have a significant impact on the efficiency of the motor and therefore the range.
Check your owners manual for pointers on what to look out for and how best to keep your Express clean and safe.
The LANE Express is water resistant and can be ridden in rain but shouldn't be immersed in water, nor would we recommend that they're ridden through torrential rain.
