System and position of the motor

Front-wheel motor
Cortina has e-bikes with a powerful and silent hub dynamo on the front wheel that is driven by digital technology. The E-U1, powered by Bafang (43 Volt), is a sturdy modern urban bike, properly basic and perfect for commuting or cycling to school. The E-YOYAE-U5 Transport, E-U4 Transport, E-Roots and E-Roots Transport have the Ecomo system (36 Volt) with tonnes of functionalities and options. These trendy e-bikes are perfect for doing the shopping, transporting kids or cycling through town. A brilliant alternative to public transport or a second car! All Cortina e-bikes have the option to set the maximum speed between 10 and 25 km/h.

Mid-drive
Cortina has one model with a mid-drive, being the E-OCTA. This model is equipped with the Bafang M400 system, which produces a fabulous natural cycle feel and it is an intelligent and maintenance-free system with a minimum chance of faults. The motor of the Bafang M400 system incorporates a power and rotation sensor. The combination of those two sensors calculates the amount of support you need and gives you this wonderful bike experience. Perfect for longer distances and for climbing hills and mountains!

Display

The displays differ from e-bike to e-bike. The e-bikes with the Ecomo system have a more comprehensive display where you can set the support in fifteen increments. It means you can adjust your speed to the person who rides alongside you. The lighting can be switched on, service alerts can be set by the dealer and the range is represented dynamically as a percentage. It shows the battery level (indication). With the Drive button you activate the walking assistance. This makes it easier to push your e-bike out of the cellar or garage box. The buttons on the display have been made in such a way you can operate them with your gloves on.

For Bafang we have 3 displays:
E-U1 - Basic display
E-OCTA - Basic LED display with lots of functionalities, including electricity consumption, service alerts and error reports.
E-OCTA Plus - LED colour display with graphic representation, making everything super clear. The display has lots of functionalities, including a display of electricity consumption, service alerts and error reports. The display also has a USB charge port for charging a telephone or navigation system.

Diagnostic software

The e-bikes can be diagnosed easily by the Cortina dealer. It is also possible to programme updates and to adjust the riding properties.

The range of an electric bike tells you how many kilometres you can complete on average before you have to recharge the battery. It seems like a simple question, but how many kilometres can I ride on my e-bike? The range largely depends on the way you use your bike. Factors that affect this include the load of your bike (how much luggage do you carry plus your own weight and height), level of support, wind against or wind in the back, outside temperature (summer/winter). A battery is a consumable and the range reduces over time. All those factors affect how quickly the battery level goes down.

For most Cortina e-bikes there is a choice of different batteries, for example for the E-U1 and the E-OCTA powered by Bafang (43 Volt) you can choose either a 340, 450 or a 750 Watt/hour (Wh) battery. Cortina e-bikes with a 36 Volt Ecomo motor have a choice of three batteries - 300, 400 or 500 Wh. Standard they come with a normal charger and a 300 Wh battery. If you'd like to charge your bike faster, all Cortina e-bikes have a quick charger option, but they cost a little more. You pay an additional price for a battery with more power and a larger range.

4 Tips for buying your Cortina e-bike:

  1. Obtain proper information about all the different Cortina e-systems and go on a test ride
  2. Consider carefully what you want to use the e-bike for. Is it for going to school or to work? Do you cycle long or short distances on a daily basis? Do you need to charge your battery quickly?
    The Cortina dealer knows which e-bike you need.
  3. A bike that is too high or too low ruins your enjoyment. Determine the right frame size together with your Cortina dealer so that they can adjust it perfectly for you.
  4. Do you take your kids to school with your e-bike? Go for a Cortina Roots. Do you often carry your sports bag too? Our sturdy transport models are suitable for transporting baggage.

 

We're all very custom to refurbished smartphones and laptops. At Cortina also the batteries of the e-bikes are being refurbished. This way you don't have to buy a new e-bike or completely new battery when you're old battery is worn down. With refurbishing, the cells of the battery are being replaced. This saves you money, but also is better for the planet since the battery doesn't go to waste.
The lifetime of an electrical bike is mainly determined by the lifetime of the battery. After a certain amount of time, depending on the usage and how often the battery gets recharged, the battery will need to be replaced. Now you don't have to replace the complete battery anymore!

Which batteries can get refurbished?


Refurbishing is - at the moment - being done for batteries of the 24V Ecomo system. You can tell if you're battery is a 24V Ecomo battery because then it will be called M, L, XL or XXL battery, which is also readable on the battery. You hand in your old battery at the Cortina-dealer and you buy a refurbished battery with new cells. This will give you 100% capacity and the electric bike will perform again as it should. If you buy a refurbished battery, you can still choose between the sizes M, L, XL or XXL and you will receive 12 months of guarantee. This will save you €110 up to €200 compared to if you would buy a new battery.

Do you have an e-bike and do you doubt about it's battery quality, then please go visit a Cortina-dealer to let them check your battery and get advise on what to do.
