The Cowboy 3 is single speed. It has an integrated torque sensor which tells the motor exactly when you need more assistance. This removes the need for gears and makes for an exceptionally smooth and uncomplicated riding experience. Whether you are starting from a standstill or riding uphill the e-bike will sense that you need more help, and the motor will provide it.
The Cowboy 3 is designed to be connected to your smartphone through the Cowboy app. Through the app you can enable features such as Auto Unlock and Crash Detection. You can also view your riding statistics such as average speed, calories burned and CO2 saved. While connectivity through the app is preferred, you can still turn the e-bike on using the Manual Unlock feature simply by removing the battery and reinserting it within 20 seconds.
Carbon belts have many advantages over conventional chains. They are substantially more durable and can last up to four times as long. They do not require any lubrication and therefore are much less likely to pick up associated dirt and grime, and cleaning is as simple as a wipe down with a damp cloth. They are manufactured with carbon fibres running through the core which makes them much lighter than a steel chain but also exceptionally tough. Finally, carbon belts are much quieter than chains. While chain drives are made up from hundreds of metals pieces, a belt drive is a singular and flexible band.
