Only adding 3.9kg to the weight of the standard bike, the ARCC Intelligent Drive Pod combines Bluetooth-controlled variable power levels with automatic hill/gradient compensation, allowing commuting cyclists to choose the amount of effort both they and the motor provides; automatically compensates for hills and gradients; and provides ‘launch control’, for safety when moving away from lights and crossings in heavy traffic. 


Designed and built by our experts at ARCC, the Intelligent Drive Pod uses a readily available Bosch battery, has a range of up to 75 kilometres and boasts a unique function in its ‘launch control’ which provides the rider with a three-second boost, to help in moving away from traffic lights and crossings in heavy traffic. 


The pod uses an industry standard 4.0 Ah, 6.0 Ah or 9.0 Ah Bosch battery, which are readily available from stores and online and have a range of up to 75km dependant on the battery used. When the battery is removed, the eBike reverts to its standard configuration and can be used as a regular bike.
