First of all, why talk about dual assistance ?
Unlike conventional VAEs which only have one electrical assistance via a torque or cadence sensor, the LMX 64s offer a second assistance: an accelerator on the handlebars. Like on a motorcycle !
Over the modes, the two assistances can be independent and combine according to what suits them best. This dual assistance is a technology at the heart of the LMX philosophy. Indeed, one of our missions is to place innovation at the service of versatility and sporting pleasure. Electric assistance is not a “lazy” or “pseudo-sports” solution, no ! It’s a real way to surpass yourself and have fun in a different way.
With the ultra-versatile LMX 64, there’s something for everyone:
A bike approved for 45 km/h with an accelerator handle on the handlebars and a torque sensor ? Designed and manufactured in France by freeride two-wheeler enthusiasts ?
You only find this at LMX Bikes !
This is a unique innovation of which we are proud and which is as close to our hearts as our double transmission. The LMX 64 proves to be a true concentrate of technology.
How it works ?
This first electric assistance is the one you will most commonly find on classic VAEs. This is a sensor located at the level of the pedals which will determine the speed of rotation of the pedals as well as the torque provided by the pilot.
The assistance power is then proportional to the effort you put into pedaling and to the assistance mode chosen on the LMX, for an extremely natural and responsive feeling. Of the 5 modes available on the LMX, the torque sensor is active on the first 4 modes.
In mode 1, 2 and 3, you only have access to this assistance mode. It is he who will help you overcome all obstacles by increasing your physical effort.
From mode 4, the accelerator on the handlebars becomes active, in addition to the sensor which is always present. This is the most versatile and fun mode !
How it works ?
The throttle on the handlebars is the second assistance system of the LMX 64. This is where the added value of the vehicle lies. It is a rotating handle located at the handlebars which serves as an accelerator, just like on a moped or a motorcycle !
The power delivered is then proportional to the user setpoint and to the assistance mode chosen on the LMX. Just turn the handle for an immediate response and enjoy the full power of your vehicle, without having to pedal.
This accelerator is available on modes 4 and 5 of the LMX, to make you benefit from all the power of the engine!
During enduro and all-terrain outings, the accelerator on the handlebars allows you to step on the gas at any time to overcome an obstacle or go back uphill even in situations where you cannot pedal. A real stroke of genius for all enduro fans who want to rediscover the sensations of motorcycling while pedaling on a sporty vehicle with a real power reserve.
