The higher the Wh is, the greater range you can cover in theory. In reality lots of factors have to be taken into consideration:
The weight of the bike: the heavier the bike is, the more energy it needs to be propelled. At SCOTT the weight and the balance of the bike is always a key point.
The quality of the motor: a smooth and smart motor will save energy and increase range. SCOTT bikes are equipped with Shimano and Bosch motors, which are the actual benchmark on the market. Motors are also adjusted with regards to the program of the bike, a city bike, for instance, will have different settings compared to an off-road bike.
The environment: road quality, wind, temperature, grade of the road, all of these play an important role.
Riding 80km* with a 500Wh battery is a good point of reference on an e-mountain bike and 100km for an e-urban bike
*on eco mode with 80kg rider.
