Which drive system is for me?
Choose a hub motor kit for mostly street riding, light off road or if you are looking to get as much speed and power as possible! With no moving parts to worry about breaking and less strain on the drive-train, the hub system is meant to last! Mid drives are lighter in weight (save about 6-9 lbs), have better weight distribution since they are mounted in the center of the bike and are better for very steep terrain, such as single track off road. The mid drive is able to utilize the bikes native gearing through the rear derailleur to give you both climbing power and decent overall speed.
