SyncDrive Life is ideal for city E-bikes used for daily transportation or recreation. These motors have Smart Assist technology, featuring six sensors including a slope detection sensor and an accelerometer. With these additional sensors, it is now possible to ride in a smart support mode, which means the sensors determine exactly how much power is needed and then automatically calculate the amount of torque, cadence, slope and speed to deliver smooth, powerful pedalling assistance. The result is an extremely comfortable and natural E-bike riding experience. SyncDrive Life offers a very quiet performance while still delivering powerful, tunable support ratios up to 300 percent.
The new, sonically tuned compact SyncDrive Sport motor is updated with 6-sensor Smart Assist technology for smooth, quiet performance. The new compact motor is the ideal solution for riders seeking a versatile, do-it-all E-bike experience. SyncDrive Sport delivers high power, even at low speeds. The Smart Assist technology calculates the amount of torque, cadence, slope and speed and, based on these calculations, determines the amount of motor output the rider needs. It feels more powerful due to its higher cadence support and faster ramp-up in torque. This improved torque ramp-up (from 500ms last year to 190ms) gives it a quicker, more responsive feel.
The SyncDrive Pro is our top-level motor. Designed for high-performance bike riding, offering 80Nm of torque, up to 170rpm cadence support and will support the rider with up to 360% of the power they put in. Any electric bike with 'pro' in the name features the SyncDrive pro motor.
Home Delivery / Click & Collect
If you decide to purchase your Giant bike online, there's a couple of options available. we offer a free click and collect service to your nearest Giant retailer, or free delivery to your home, in certain locations. Every bike is fully built and assembled by a Giant authorised mechanic before you ride it, so you can be confident from the first pedal stroke that your new purchase is ready to roll.
Want to make sure you are getting the most out of your electric bike? Our guides can help to explain some of the more technical stuff and give you every bit of information you need to know about hybrid bikes.
A Guide To Giant E-bike Batteries
The battery is the beating heart of any electric bike, and we’ve partnered with one of the biggest and best manufacturers in Panasonic to deliver a high quality, long-lasting and technologically advanced product. Find out more about its class-leading performance in our guide.
Cycling to Work Guide
Fancy commuting into work by bike? A hybrid electric bike is a great option if you want to get to work easily and without any stress. The pedal-assisted support reduces effort during the ride, delivering you sweat-free and ready to start the day. Our guide below will give you everything you need to know about starting your cycling commute.
If you want to test ride, we have over 90 demo locations across the UK & Ireland offering a wide variety of electric bikes to choose from. With prices starting from £35 per day for an electric mountain bike, it's an easy way to try before you buy - simply visit our hire website and book your bike. What's even better, after you safely return the bike, you'll receive the same amount back as a voucher code to spend on the Giant or Liv website - it doesn't even have to be a hybrid you purchase either, if you decide electric isn't for you.
How long does a battery take to charge?
The charging time varies per battery, however a 500Wh will take no longer than 3½ hours to full charge. With SmartAssist charging, the battery can gain 60% capacity in just 90 minutes. For lesser capacity batteries, the charging time will be slightly reduced.
How much does the battery weigh?
Again, this varies per battery, however, an integrated downtube 500Wh capacity battery is 4kg. A lesser capacity version will be slightly lighter.
If the battery is not integrated and located externally on the rear carrier, then a 500Wh battery weighs 3.2kg. A lesser capacity version will be slightly lighter.
How fast can my E-bike go?
Due to EU regulation, E-bikes are limited to 25 kmph / 15.5mph and will provide support up to this speed. Once the speed has reached this figure, the motor will stop assisting until the speed has dropped below the limitation.
Can I buy replacement / additional batteries for my E-bike?
Yes - we offer replacement batteries for the majority of our range models in excess of 10 years old, so you can be sure that your E-bike will be supported for the duration of your ownership.
If you would like to inquire about obtaining a replacement or additional battery, please contact your local retailer, along with your frame number, so we can accurately advise on the correct unit.
Please note, LaFree Twist & Giant Suede batteries are no longer available.
Do I need to pedal to receive support from my E-bike?
Yes - e-bikes are classed as pedal-assist, which means that the drivetrain needs to be engaged in order for it to provide support.
Any bike that provides support without pedalling is classed as a motor vehicle and therefore will need taxing, insurance, MOT and a valid drivers license in order to be road legal.
Will my bike charge as I pedal?
No, the battery can only be charged by being plugged in.
What warranty is available?
We offer a 2-year warranty on the electrical system, which includes the motor and the battery. Apart from that, the warranty for an E-bike is exactly the same as a standard Giant bicycle - find out more information on our dedicated warranty page.
What does the different Nm mean on the motor?
Nm stands for Newton meter, and it’s the measurement for communicating torque. Newton Meter (Nm) is used to measure and rate the rotating force produced by an E-bike motor. This is the most important factor in determining how well a motor climbs up hills and accelerates, so generally, the higher the figure the better the bike will perform.
However, please note that we spec our bikes to have the correct motors for the type of riding the bike will do. For example, an electric mountain bike would be expected to climb steeper and muddier terrain, so they will generally have a higher torque figure than a city or adventure E-bike, which will be used in a less demanding way.
