Eco: top speed 12mph, range 20+ miles

Hill-climbing

Approximately 12.5% – based on an 80kg rider going 12mph for at least 500 metres (rolling start, not standing).

When comparing hill-climbing statistics, make sure to find out tested rider weight, speed, distance travelled, etc.

Speed restriction?

Yes. Product will arrive unrestricted, rider can adjust.

Voltage / Max voltage

Max voltage: 50.2v.

Battery capacity

368 watt-hours (lithium-ion high power discharge).

Battery Management System

Taur's proprietary BMS monitors the battery 100 times per second to ensure it's healthy and happy. Any performance or safety issues can be caught, and caught quickly.

Maximum rider weight

While Taur is capable of carrying heavier folk, our warranty only covers riders up to 220 lbs (100kg).

Charging

Charge time

– 0-80% in 1 hour 50 mins (85% in 2 hours).

– 0-100% in 3 hours.

Charger

150W

Power outlet

Any standard wall power outlet will do. No special infrastructure or converters required.

Wheels

Brand

Continental®. Air-filled and Kevlar-reinforced for puncture resistance.

Tire size

2 x 12.5 inch tires (code: 12 1/2 x 2 1/4 (63-203)).

Brands such as Continental or Kenda can be found online or in some bicycle repair stores.

Rims

Die-cast aluminum

Brakes

Front

Variable regenerative brake. Uses the stopping force of the 500W motor to charge the battery as you slow down.

Rear

140mm hydraulic caliper disc brake.

Variable Braking

A small squeeze of the brake lever provides a small amount of braking force to both wheels – and vice versa.

Lighting

Front

300 lumens Cree® LED, high power directional beam. The light is curved and frosted to provide side-on visibility to 240°. Pacman/pie-chart visual to show % of scooter visible

REAR LIGHTING SYSTEM

Rear light

80 lumens LED. This light is also curved and frosted to provide side-on visibility to approx. 200°.

REAR LIGHTING SYSTEM

Rear projection light

A 100 lumens Cree® LED is focused through optics onto the rider's back, fully illuminating them from behind. Head to toe visibility to approx. 180°.

Brake lighting scheme

When braking, a bright solid red light appears on the rear light. At night, the entire rear lighting system shines with extra brightness, same as a car.

Ride Control

Accelerator

Thumb-throttle on right handlebar. For safety reasons, the motor will not engage if the wheel isn't spinning (>1mph). Riders must therefore hold the thumb-throttle down + kick off to get going.

Traction control

Fully holding down the throttle will result in smooth acceleration in all conditions.

Brake

Hand brake lever on left handlebar. Braking is variable on both wheels – see 'Brakes' section above.

Interface & Display

5-way joystick

The joystick is mounted on the left handlebar, and is easily controlled with your thumb while riding. It can move up, down, left, right and in. Functionality currently includes:

– sounding the horn
– turning on lighting
– switching performance modes

Digital display

RGB ring with integrated OLED display.

Information displayed

Speed, battery level and performance mode.

Horn

Volume

Polyphonic sounder up to 95 decibels. Audible over traffic noise.

Position

Behind Taur's 'bull' logo in the middle of the handlebars, protected by a water-resistant Teflon cover. Specifically located to project sound forward.

Security

Digital lock

To unlock and ride, place an RFID key on the display. 2 key fobs included with every unit.

Physical lock

Through-frame and wheel (front wheel recommended). Lock not included.

Ride in the rain

Enclosure

IP55 rated. Protected against dust ingress that could be harmful for the normal operation of the product but is not fully dust tight. It is protected against solid objects and water jets projected by a nozzle (6.3mm) from any directions.

Storage Modes

Center Stand

Taur has a motorbike-style 'center stand'. Roll Taur forward to snap the stand back underneath the frame.

Center stand on fold rest

The center stand can be used when the product is folded too.

Folded vertical stand

Taur can also fold and stand vertically on the rear wheel and tips of the handlebars.

Portability

Weight

37.6 lbs / 17kg.

Sustainability

Recycling

– Aluminum is the most easily recycled metal and it's by far the most common material in the product.
– All metals in Taur are fully recyclable – and are 'single material', which makes recycling easier.
– Taur maximises use of recyclable packaging (no plastics – all recyclable cardboard and foams)

Efficient, long-lasting design

– Highly robust aluminum frame– Over-engineered electronic solutions
– Exceptional quality components (battery cells, brakes, wiring, connectors, LEDs, etc)
– Puncture-resistant Continental tyres (low air pressure, low rolling resistance)
– High levels of ingress protection (IP55)
– Smart Battery Management System will maximise battery longevity to minimise environmental impact

Local Maintenance

– Taur is made of 5 core modules plus standardized bicycle components.
– If anything goes wrong with Taur we've designed it to minimise the cost and difficulty of getting it fixed, instead of throwing it away.
– It's also possible to do all this locally. Both regular wear and tear and deeper issues can be fixed by the customer or by a local bicycle repair store – without needing to ship the product across the country, using more packaging and emissions in the process.
