QuietKat Electric Bikes has introduced the launch of its Variable Power Output (VPO) technology. This new feature gives riders the ability to customize power output parameters based on the trails or areas they choose to ride, thus expanding the reach of QuietKat eBikes by enabling riders to adjust output to comply with relevant jurisdictional regulations.

“We’re excited to introduce VPO to our customers,” said QuietKat president and co-founder Jake Roach. “This technology is truly a first-to-market game-changer, not just for the end user but also for the industry as a whole. With VPO, QuietKat customers can now access more trails, paths, and other areas that have differing output requirements for eBike use. This technology allows us to provide more riding options from a single eBike.”

The QuietKat VPO-enabled eBike adheres to the Three Class System, which is recognized in over 40 states and standardized by People for Bikes, the trade association for the bicycle and eBike industry. In order to modernize electric bicycle law in the United States, People For Bikes devised a three-class system to categorize electric bicycles and properly regulate them based on their maximum assisted speed.

Every QuietKat VPO enabled eBike ships as a Class 2 and allows the user to easily toggle between Class 1, 2, 3 and unlimited.

“E-Bike rules are inconsistent across federal, state and local jurisdictions. Often times, there are competing rules within the same agency or management area, challenging riders and managers alike. The QuietKat VPO enabled eBike allows the rider to evaluate which class is approved and adjust accordingly,” said Roach. “QuietKat and our riders have a demonstrated commitment to stewardship and conservation. Our riders care deeply about complying with the local rules, and the VPO technology will make it easier for riders to stay in compliance and continue the ride.”

Switching between classifications is simple and can easily be done with the display screen on the QuietKat eBike. The QuietKat eBike must be at a full stop to safely allow the user to make the change, it will then immediately be set to whichever mode was selected. It is up to the rider to make sure that the correct class has been chosen for the area that they are riding.  

VPO technology will be available on all mid-drive motor options including Apex Pro, Apex Sport, Jeep, Rubicon and Ibex.
