Watt-hour (Wh) is an energy unit indicating the capacity of e-bike batteries, representing the energy storage and delivery level. It combines power (watts) and duration (hours), providing an idea of the energy deliverable by your e-bike battery over a certain period. Higher Wh ratings suggest longer ranges but actual distance depends on factors like terrain, rider weight, and weather conditions.

Torque in e-bikes refers to the rotational force generated by the motor, affecting the bike’s hill-climbing ability, acceleration, and load capacity. Measured in Newton-meters (Nm), a higher torque implies a more powerful motor. However, bike weight, gear ratios, and power delivery systems also impact performance.

Watts measure the power output of an e-bike motor. Higher wattage typically means faster acceleration, higher speeds, and better hill-climbing and load-carrying capabilities. However, consider your use, terrain, and local regulations as legal restrictions may apply to higher wattage motors.
