Automated Bike Shocks With Linear Actuators


Linear DC actuators are innovative features applied on automated bikes to help improve pedaling efficiency on a hilly terrain due to the force applied by the shock absorbers. This article focuses on how this feature works while reflecting on their ability to detect the movement of a bike and the nature of the terrain they are on.

Linear DC actuators
Shock absorbers are an essential feature in bikes because they help offset shock especially when one is pedaling on a ragged terrain. However, these shock absorbers are problematic when one is pedaling up a hill because of one tends to drain a lot of energy when cycling because of the energy applied. Continue Reading
