Why is the top speed limited to 20mph?

You may notice that different countries have their own way of classifying different styles of bikes. In the U.S., the bicycle industry places electric bikes into three separate categories: Class 1, Class 2, and Class 3.

Categorie Max speed Pedal assist Throttle
Class 1 20mph Yes No
Class 2 20mph Yes Yes
Class 3 28mph Yes No

Samebike bikes come to you with a max speed limit of 20mph, which means they are regulated in the same manner as traditional bikes. That means you're not required to get a license for it, and no need to worry if you can buy insurance for it.

Considering the different requirements for different riding styles, we reserved the method for you to unlock the speed limit yourself. Please note before you unlocking it:

  • The top speed will be affected by factors like terrain, weather, rider weights, etc.
  • The higher speed will lead to a longer stopping distance.
  • Unlock the speed limit is your personal behavior, we will take no responsibility for this.
  • Unlock the speed limit won't affect the validity of the warranty.
