The History of E-bike


Do you remember when you first heard of E-bike? Do you know how long it has been since it became an invention? It seems that E-Bike is a new products popping up in recent years. However, E-bike actually have a history over one century. And Here I’d like to introduce the birth of e-bike briefly this to you, hoping it will help you learn more about E-bike.

It dates back to 1895 that the prototypes of ebikes appeared and it was in early 20th century that the very early ebikes were put in wide use. Ogden Bolton Jr. is the first one who designed and owned an electric bike, granted US Patent 552,271 in December, 1985. This patent was for the bicycle powered by a battery with “6-pole brush-and-commutator direct current hub motor mounted in the rear wheel.” Then in 1897, Hosea W. Libby invented an upgraded type of electric bike that was powered by a double electric motor. The momentum kept advancing in the following years. In 1898, Mathew J. Steffens designed a rear derive electric bike with a belt attached to the wheel. One year later in 1899, a” roller- wheel” style e-bike. This was the rapid birth of e-bike in the end of 19th century.

  It’s noticeable that at that time, the e-bikes were equipped with 48 volt batteries as nowadays the e-bikes of many brands do. Yes, don’t be surprise. About 120 years have passed, and it still stuck in 48 volt batteries. However, that’s not the case when it comes to Magicycle.
