LIFT MTB, made in France electric  bike kit.


made in france e-bike kit

Why we can speak about made in France electric bike motors kits ?

 

In effect, the inside coil and aluminium housing on our motors are from Asia, but that not the most important, that's the only way for propose a complète mid drive kit at good price for customers, we can probably do a 100% made in France motor but the price will be most expensive without quality value on this kind of few part's, because now the best factory for made this kind of product are in Asia for exemple our maker do more as 1 million of different kind of motor each year...

 

Most people see only the motor on the bike kit, but that is not the most expensive point.

 

The value is on all others points,like to electronic part's , CNC parts, choose and use the good material for do the Inside part's, do the best design for have strong kit and light weight, do the heat treatment.

 

People imagine so the motor is the most important or expensive but that only a 20% of the price of the complet mid drive kit, so we have around 70% of the price of the kit whis part's do from France.

 

If you do more than 45% of the product in France you can post about made in France, so with around up to 70% for the LIFT MTB kit that is ok !

 

That's a good and interesting question because is it important to explain to the customers why our electric motor for change your bike into electric bike is better and stronger than the china counterfeiting model.

 

As for your infos, the time for do only one kit is around 6 hours, and we use many very expensive machine for that,  CNC machine , heat treatment machine , anodisation machine, laser cut machine...

without these expensive machine and people for use this kind of complexe machine, that can not work correctly.

Other way electric bike motor only Bosch, Yamaha, Bafang and all other brands do also motors from Asia country with low production cost that is the only way for have acceptable price.



Différence LIFT MTB made in France and fake china version.


Make the best quality is expensive - the speciality for most chinese companies is to do a product who looks like yours, but without the expensive product part which is making at the end, the quality and the performance.

This happens for all the industries like phone, shoes, clothes,high tech… so that always seem good because they add some nice carbon part's, or nice aluminium "bling bling" anodized part's, but that's not efficient and strong on the tracks !

 

So for these FAKE china version, the main problèm is always the gear ratio very bad for all case, because it's very expensive to miniaturize some part's like motor freewheel for have compact and efficient systeme, but you will discover the bad surprise after buying and test, because the vendor never speak about that...

 

So your crank will turn to fast for your leg 140rpm for exemple (for normaly 80/90rpm ), you will havn't good torque, that increase the consumption (so you must buy bigger and more expensive battery for do the same job)  and the risk of over heat and burn the motor and battery is higher...

 

Some China maker use very big sprocket like to 52 or 72t for avoid to much speed on the crank, but that increase the ground clearence and the weight, that's decrease the probleme of speed, consumption, torque and over head probleme but that don't solve these problèmes.

 

Other numberous point are adaptibility, and bad quality of each part's, you can see under some détails about that.

 

The best quality have a price, everything that shines is not a gold !
