What is the difference between the Silent and Silent HT electric motors?
Van Raam has a Silent and a Silent HT electric motor. The difference between these motors is that the Silent HT electric motor is slightly larger than the regular Silent motor. Additionally, the Silent HT electric motor also weighs slightly more than the Silent. The Silent electric motor weighs 5.7 kg and the Silent HT weighs 7 kg. However, the most important difference lies in the power of the motors.
Difference in power
The biggest difference between the electric motors is the power. The Silent HT has more Nm (Newton meters) than the Silent electric motor. The Silent electric motor has 45 Nm and the Silent HT has 60 Nm. Nm is the unit for the amount of force that rotates an object around an axis or pivot point, which is also called 'torque'.
Because the Silent HT has more Nm, its power is greater than that of the Silent electric motor. The Silent HT motor is therefore very suitable for:
- Heavier bicycles, such as the Fun2Go side-by-side tandem bike, VeloPlus wheelchair bike, or Chat rickshaw bike.
- Users who frequently ride in mountainous areas.
- Users with reduced pedaling power.
- Users who want to ride longer and further without getting tired quickly.
Please note: Due to the powerful torque of the Silent HT, this motor consumes slightly more electricity on average.
