You can ride an e-bike in all weather conditions. All electrical components are insulated, so you have nothing to worry about in this respect. However, you should avoid crossing fords and deep puddles. In this case, you could risk electrical short circuits and damage to the bike.
You should also protect your e-bikes from higher water pressure. It is not advisable to wash the e-bike with high-pressure water cleaners, or for example when transporting it on a car rack in heavy rain, when the high speeds cause higher water pressure.
You can ride your e-bike even in cold weather or snow. However, you should take into account that in cold weather the battery drains faster and the riding distance can be up to a third shorter than in other parts of the year.
Battery charging time is dependent on the battery capacity, the remaining energy in the battery and the charger used. For CRUSSIS electric bikes we use 2 Ah chargers, which are gentle on the battery and do not shorten its life (unlike fast chargers). In practice, this means that the charger will charge a 14 Ah battery fully in approximately 7 hours.
If you are parked, for example, in a car park without an electrical socket, you can conveniently remove the battery and charge it separately.
