Light Weight/High Power/High Torque/High Efficiency Operation – Falco’s patent pending technology is able to deliver light weight, high power, high torque and high efficiency propulsion systems and significantly superior performance over existing 3-phase motors.
Direct and Precise Torque Control – The controller has 15 embedded sensors to measure the motor’s current, power, voltage, temperature, magnetic field and torque. Falco’s controller provides precision torque control of the motor to allow for an extremely smooth and exhilarating ride.
Zero Resistance Pedaling – Falco’s team worked tirelessly to ensure that the eBike remains super easy to pedal when it is off. They achieved this by minimizing the force of the magnets inside the motor to near zero when the bike is switched off.
Customizable and Removable Disc Brake and Free Wheel Adaptors – Falco’s disc brake and free wheel adaptors are removable and customizable allowing manufacturers to use different types of disc brakes and free wheels to enhance their eBike product line.
