The Impulse 1.0 is a speed pedelec meaning it can legally go above 20 mph (up to 28 mph) in the highest level of pedal assist. There’s no throttle here so pedaling is required, but it is super responsive and very peppy in the Sport/Turbo mode, which uses the battery three times as fast as the eco mode. If you want to go fast, this might be the right fit for you. 

The Impulse 1.0 also features the Gates Carbon Belt drive - light, stiff and extremely quiet. It’s paired up with an 11 speed internally geared hub in the rear which should require less maintenance than a traditional cassette and derailleur. It comes in two frame styles including trapez or “step-thru” and diamant or “high-step” and five frame sizes ranging from 18? to 23.6?. 

Charge time is estimated at 6 hrs and the range is 65 to 125 miles, 65 miles being outstanding for a speed model configuration.
