How fast and how far can the Shima go?
The Shima can reach speeds of up to 45 km/h (28mph), however you are able to pedal faster. The Shima will assist you up to 60km (37.2 miles) (the distance varies depending on the weight of the rider and riding conditions).
How do I set my own pace?
You can choose the level of pedal assistance provided using the control option on the display; you can change the level of assistance provided by the motor enabling you to set your own pace and define your riding experience. There are three assistance levels: ‘economy’ for maximum range, ‘standard’ for an optimal blend of range and performance, and ‘high’ for sporty, dynamic performance.
How does the Shima handle hills?
The Shima delivers up to 35 Nm of torque to propel you from a standing start with ease and help you navigate the hills between you and your destination. Falling in to the speed pedelec class of European legislation, the Shima delivers higher power and enables you to operate the bike at peak output when the terrain requires it. These design features are what gives the Shima the most dynamic speed performance of the A2B range and sets it apart from other the standard pedelec segment of the electric bikes market.
How do I charge the Shima?
The Shima uses lithium ion batteries from the highest quality manufacturers. Recharging is as easy as charging a mobile phone or laptop. Simply plug the charger into any standard outlet and connect it to your charge port on the bike or your portable rear rack battery. After two hours your battery will be charged up to 80% of its capacity. To complete a full charge will take between five to six hours depending on how discharged the battery is at the beginning of the charging process. For the best performance we recommend to charge your Shima battery at least every two months and if you are using it frequently keep the battery topped up as often as possible.
How do I know if I'm running low on power?
There is an indicator on the display of the Shima that indicates how much energy is left in your battery. We call this the ‘state-of-charge’ of the battery. The indicator works like a fuel gauge on your car and will let you know when you are running low and should re-charge.
What does my warranty cover?
The Shima comes with a five year frame warranty, a two year warranty covering electronics and motor and battery.

We have a range of accessories to meet your lifestyle needs, including the Shima’s optional 17.5ah battery which will deliver extended performance and range, available at your local A2B dealer. Visit the accessories page to view the range.
