PowerCycle is made by Merida, one of the world's largest builders of premium bicycles.
If you want to ease into an exercise program, run errands or just cruise, the PowerCycle is a fantastic choice.
With hill flattening power the Merida PowerCycle uses an integrated motor and easily detachable battery to multiply your pedaling power. The power assist is strongest when you need it most adding 2.5 times your power when starting and climbing steep hills. There are no complex controls to master.
This type bike is called a Pedalic (pedal electric cycle). To understand the principle it compares to the power steering in your auto. Try parking a car with manual steering. It can really make you sweat.
Now park a car with power assisted steering and you can turn the wheel with one finger!
This is what a pedalic is all about only you are getting the power assist to the pedals with easy work for your legs.
Manual auto steering vrs. power steering compares to riding a manual bike vrs. a pedalic.
The Powercycle is an excellant transportation alternative. With the increasing price of gas the Powercycle will pay for itself in no time. These bikes are very popular in Europe where the gas prices are a lot higher.
