Which is better, EggRider or 35 Amp Controller & Display for your Rad Power Bike (Update)

Apr 04, 2024
Hello, good morning, I'm Gareth from Big Game Bikes. I wanted to do a follow up video for you guys on the two most popular performance upgrades you can get for

your

radical

bike

and those are the air rack, this big 35 amp

controller

before. Going into how these two devices work, it's worth thinking about what

your

bike

is currently capable of, so the first thing you need to think about is the fact that your bike's

display

controls all the rules within your

controller

and on your radical bike. That screen has a lot of features that simply aren't available to you and both the 35 amp controller and air grille remove those barriers, so both devices allow you full access to all of your bike's features and capabilities, So the first thing you should do is think about the fact that the geared hub motor on all Rad bikes is a 500 watt motor.

Think about watts for a second. What is the same

power

for climbing hills? So in Europe your Rad bike will be restricted to 250 watts and in North America your bike. will be restricted to 750 watts now, that may not make much sense, but there is a reason behind that, okay, if you take off your rad controller and look, there is a label on your rad controller, okay, and that label it will have a maximum voltage and amperage and on my rad wagon for example it is 19 amps so if you take 48 volts multiplied by 19 amps you get 912 watts and that is how I know my bike has been restricted to 250 watts or restricted to 750 watts, okay?

More Interesting Facts About,

which is better eggrider or 35 amp controller display for your rad power bike update...

This is where the Egg Rider comes into play and where the 35 amp controller comes into play. Let's talk about the Egg Rider first. The Egg Rider is a small screen a little bigger than my right thumb and the Egg Rider screen gives you full visibility access and control of all settings on your original controller, so if your original controller is capable of generating a maximum of 19 amps, the Egg Rider will give you the ability to modify the settings on your controller to access 19 amps, so now instead of being restricted to 250 watts or 750 watts, you can now access 912 watts, so In fact, it peaks a little bit higher than that, okay, I'm not going to get into that in this video, but that's what the egg does.

Egg Rider allows you to completely remove restrictions and access all settings and all features that are currently hidden or locked on your current screen. Now the second

update

is a hardware

update

. Okay, and what we're doing with this 35 amp controller. Are we replacing your bike controller with a new much larger controller and are we replacing the screen because this controller doesn't speak the same language as your rad screen? You know they use different communication protocols, that's why you can't connect this controller to your radial

display

when it says hardware change, remember the sums we did a moment ago? 48 times 19 is 912 watts, well 48 volts times 35 amps is 1680 watts, so the egg will give you 900 watts of choline. climbing

power

and this will give you 1680 watts of hill climbing power, so there is a big difference.

The other thing worth keeping in mind is that none of these devices will give you a huge amount of speed and that is because the way real motors are designed is such that the motors can only spin at a certain speed. and that's why whether you go with the 35 amp controller or the egg, you'll max out on a full battery at about 23 to 25 miles per hour 25 miles per hour something like that with the 35 amp controller you'll get to that speed much faster and if you encounter a slope or a hill you will maintain it with this device and with the Egg Rider you will get similar results now.
Needless to say, of course, the more power you draw from your battery, the greater impact it will have on your range. You can't have one without the other, but it's worth keeping in mind. You're unlikely to consistently get those high power numbers out of the controller, so let's talk for a second about the geared hub motor you have on your bike. Okay, it's 500 watts restricted in Europe and 250 watts restricted in North America. 750 watts, one of the other upgrades, one of the other performance upgrades that is available is a 750 watt motor. Now if we talk about those wattages, they are what they call rated wattages, they are the wattages that the motor is designed to run most efficiently. in and and the best in and and that's not entirely true what I mean by this is that with the 500 watt motor, for example, you can happily push twice that 1000 watts through that motor all day long without affecting negatively or adversely the life of that motor and at the same time, if you then replace your 500 watt motor with the larger 750 watt motor, you can now double that figure,

which

is 1500 watts and that's it.
I hope this video has given you an idea of ​​what the two updates are. Air Grider and amp controller can do for your bike. They are brilliant improvements. They will make a tremendous difference. You know, the vast majority of people I talk to aren't looking for speed, they're looking for help, more assistance getting up hills. On more difficult terrain, both the Egg Rider and the 35 amp controller perform wonderfully. I have no preference for either of them. Both have their place. I have the Egg Rider on my cargo bike in my rad wagon. I have tried the. 35m controller on my cargo bike and personally for me it produces too much power especially when I have my kids on my back.
I don't need to, I don't need to be running, the Egg Rider will do. and I can go 15 miles an hour and I'll hit a hill and I'll maintain that speed because the watts go up and again, what's the same power going up hills? And that's it, it's as simple as that, let me know in the comments below if you have any questions if I haven't covered something in this video that interests you then check out the link below to our Facebook group, join or Contact me, yes, and I hope to do so.
