Just 3 words that sum up the Gocycle G3 eBike. This clever electric bike is designed by ex Formula One, McLaren Car designer Richard Thorpe in London, UK. Now we see the revised G3 version with some all new features!

Gocycle has spent years listening to customers feedback and revising the Gocycle G2 to develop the new G3.

Aside from the new distinctive electric Blue colour, the Gocycle G3 has lots of improvements which offers a new platform of usability to its riders.

We’ll delve further into some of the new features below but to sum it up, the new Gocycle G3 is now more comfortable, user friendly, safer & will travel even further than ever before!

You can see that every aspect of the Gocycle G3 has been developed to the highest standards, with the main focus on usability & rideability. The fact that it is so easy to use means it opens up a whole new era of cycling.

Just pull the bike out, hop on and start pedalling. It really is as simple as that. This clever machine measures exactly what the rider is doing and applies power and gear changes accordingly. All you have to do is point it in the right direction.. Simple!

Daytime Running Light

The Gocycle G3 now has a daytime running light (DRL).

New European law states that all automobiles are required to have DRL’s which offer improved safety to road users to increase the visibility for all transport.

Although not essential, we have to remember that the Gocycle G3 is developed by an ex formula 1 engineer with insights into the future of automobiles and safety.

Therefore the Gocycle G3 now comes with a fully integrated DRL built into the G3 dash, of course Gocycle take it to a whole new level using patented light pipe technology offering a huge increase in Gocycle riders being seen out and about.

Two Wheel Drive on the Gocycle G2 Electric Bike

Two Wheel Drive

You power the rear wheel using the pedals, whilst the Gocycle G3 works out exactly what effort you are putting into the bike via a torque sensor in the crank.

It then simultaneously powers the front wheel via a powerful micro motor hidden away offering a fast, no-effort, no-emission journey.

This Gocycle approach also gives the perfect power-to-weight ratio ensuring a smooth ride.

It not only gives better weight distribution, but it means the power is always there instantly when you need it most.

You can either ride the Gocycle G3 as normal and the motor will opt in as required, or you can have on-demand power at the touch of a button in the cockpit.

The Gocycle G3 dashboard also gives a full display of the rider essentials including gear selection, speed, light controls & battery charge state, built into a clean, easy to use cockpit. New for the G3 also offers an extended dash for a seamless look. This clutter free approach consists of just brake levers and a button each side to operate the levels.

Pitstop Wheels

The Gocycle G3 Pitstop Wheels, pretty much do exactly as the name suggests! Without the use of any tools at all. Just use your hands to flip back 3 clips & pop the wheel off.

The new G3 design offers the patented Hexlock™ design system with a single click design. Simplicity is key!

The wheels are made of a lightweight alloy and take regular city 20″ tyres. You’ll be surprised just how light they are when in your hands. Both wheels on the Gocycle G3 are identical.

You will never get confused. It also makes refitting the wheels back on after removal simple. Not to mention hassle free puncture repairs! Or should we say Pitstop Wheel repairs!!..
