The F4W Peak has a mountain bike style aluminum frame.
The cranks of the F4W Peak have a built in torque sensor that is used for the pedal assist option. The system will sense how much power you are putting into the pedals and then provide the corresponding assist based on which level of assist you have selected (1 = low, 2 = medium, or 3 = high). There is also the option of using the throttle while pedaling or not.
The F4W Peak comes equipped with a Shimano Alivio rear derailleur and an 8 speed cogset.
This is the 350 watt geared rear hub motor made by 8FUN (Bafang). The 8 speed cogset provides a nice range of gear options.
The F4W Peak uses a Sony lithium ion 36V 9ah battery pack located just behind the seat tube of the frame.
The battery has an on/off switch as well as a battery level indicator. Also visible is the lock for the battery.
The battery can be removed by unlocking it with the supplied key and rotating the battery to the side.
