A2B Galvani Electric Bike
Named after Luigi Aloisio Galvani, inventor of galvanic battery cells with extended, impressive performance.
The Galvani's urban retro-style frame and larger wheels move over obstacles more easily, making it suitable for rough terrains and non sealed roads. Powered by pedal assist, this sporty, touring bike-style model is designed to look great and perform brilliantly in both urban and country environments.
The electric bike’s answer to a touring bike, the Galvani opens up an almost inconceivably wide range of journey choices. Designed to perform on nearly every type of terrain, the Galvani is just as happy (and looks just as good) gliding down a smart city street as it does burning up gravel roads.
The Galvani’s retro Dutch design encourages a more impressive rider performance, and therefore offers a greater range. The perfect partner as you explore even longer and more exciting new journeys, the Galvani has a maximum speed of 25km/h (15.5mph) and a range of up to 90km (56 miles)*.
* Dependant on power setting, rider and riding conditions.

How fast and how far can the Galvani/Male?
The Galvani/Male can reach speeds of up to 25 km/h (15.5mph), however you can pedal faster. The Galvani/Male will assist you up to 90km (56 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 it handle hills?
The Galvani delivers up to 35 Nm of torque to propel you from a standing start with ease and will help you navigate the hills between you and your destination. The design of the Galvani propulsion system enables you to operate the bike at peak output when the terrain requires it. These design features are what gives the Galvani long range and touring performance and set it apart from other pedal assist electric bikes on the market.
How do I charge the Galvani/Male?
The Galvani 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 vehicle 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 four 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 Galvani 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 Galvani/ Male which 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 Galvani/Male comes with a five year frame warranty, a two year warranty covering electronics and motor and battery.
