Functioning of the smart lock

Unlock

Enter the 6-digit unlock code to open the bicycle lock. Each button will make a beeping sound. No beep? Press again.
Remove the plug chain from the lock, turn the chain around the seat, plug it back into the lock.

Not functioning?

Entered the wrong digit or code? Wait 10 seconds after the last beep and try again.
Does the e-bike not unlock after entering the code? Try again, and make sure the lock can move freely.
If needed, lift the e-bike by the saddle and move the rear wheel lightly.

Lock

Remove the plug chain from the lock. Secure the chain around a fixed object and insert the plug into the lock. Press on of the buttons and close the lock.

The maximum support is 25 km/h.

Range

With a fully charged battery you can ride 65-130 km with support, depending on your driving habits, resistance, temperature and the degree of support.

Biking with an empty battery is also possible/
