An e-bike is a rather complex system of mechanical and electrical components. While that can be said about many products, getting your product specifications right is critical when importing e-bikes from China.

Buyers in the US, Europe, and Australia need to be even more cautious. E-bikes, and their components, are regulated – and the consequences of non-compliance are serious. Let’s begin by taking a look at the technical aspects.

What’s more, Chinese suppliers, including those in the e-bike industry, tend to lack strict internal quality guidelines. In practice, this means that many suppliers basically use any components they have in stock – unless you explicitly “tell them” to use specific components. Let’s look into the most important specifications when buying electric bikes from China: Continue reading Importing E-bikes from China: A Complete Guide
