Falco opens hands-on electric bicycle training center in Dulles, Virginia
Electric bike industry is exploding and there is very little in terms of knowledge and training for consumers, dealers and bike manufacturers.
Falco’s engineering team believes that today best solutions are losing to mindless marketing. Risk averse bike manufacturers are afraid to try out new technologies. Electric bike consumers are hungry for breakthroughs.
“Great technological solutions with indisputable test data and reliability will win out against legacy solutions. Electric bike industry is exploding and there is very little in terms of knowledge and training for consumers, dealers and bike manufacturers. Also, the information available is quite confusing and conflicting. We want to change that. We want to standardize knowledge related to electric bikes so it is easier for everyone. We come across so many dealers, consumers and OEMs who are petrified of electric bike technology. We want to bring in a resourceful training center which brings all of this knowledge under one roof," says Rakesh Dhawan, President of Falco eMotors.
Falco’s new center will provide training to consumers, dealers and OEMs in the areas of:
1. Electric bike operation and theory (torque, power, range, weight, etc.);
2. Electric bike motors (mid-drive, direct-drive, gearless and geared drives);
3. Battery technology (lithium ion);
4. Sensors (pedal assist sensors, torque sensors, brake sensors, etc.);
6. Wheel and electric bike building, etc.
Many electric bikes with various technologies including Falco’s unique five phase technology as well as other brands will be available for demonstration during the training.
