Do I Need a License?

No, federal law treats electric bikes just like a normal bicycle as long as it is limited to 20 mph while being powered by the motor and has less than 750 watts of power. Each state has different speed restrictions so you should check your DMV for additional information. California has categorized electric bikes into 3 tiers:
Tier 1 – pedal assist bikes with a max speed of 20 mph and less than 750 watts of power
Tier 2 – Throttle on demand bikes that have a max speed of 20 mph and less than 750 watts of power
Tier 3– “speed pedelec” bikes with a max speed of 28 mph and less than 750 watts of power
Our Espin pedal-assist eBikes for sale are Tier 3 electric bikes.
