Hilltopper | Summit Electric Bike Conversion Kit (500W Motor)

 

Fly up the hardest hills and turn heads as you show off your new super powers. The powerful 500W motor provides a consistent cruising speed of 20 mph with a 5-level pedal assist that gives you power with every pedal stroke (“go fast now” throttle also included).

 

The lithium-ion battery will give you 25-40+ miles of range depending on power use and a LCD screen provides real time data on your speed, range, and power.  This is our most powerful conversion kit, with enough torque for the steepest of hills. Fits most bikes and adult trikes. No spandex required.

Components

Your Wheel

Your wheel is built by hand. Stainless steel spokes are combined with a double wall rim. Extra thick nylon rim tape provides extra protection against flats. A complementary Kenda tire & tube is included to make installation easy (and save you money). All wheels are disc brake and rim brake compatible.

 

Motor

At the center of things is a 48V 500 Watt Electric Motor in black. This high torque motor provides fast acceleration and a continuous 20 mph top speed to ensure your bike remains street legal. Hilltopper motors are legendary for their long lifespan, typically outlasting the battery and your bike.

 

Battery

Motor is powered by a 48V 10Ah Lithium Ion battery. Range of 25 - 50+ miles depending on how much you pedal and the terrain. Built in a rugged duraplastic case, this battery mounts on your downtube using the water bottle cage mounts. Or on a rear rack or in a basket. Battery has a LED gauge that tells you how much charge is left, plus a lock that keeps the battery safe and turns it on and off. Very energy dense, with lots of range for the battery size.

 

Pedal Sensor & LCD Display

Enjoy a boost every time you pedal. LCD display controls how much power the motor adds to your pedal stroke, while also providing real time data on your speed, battery usage, and miles traveled. Pedal sensor is two pieces, and easily clips on to your cranks. This is a full feature kit that can be installed at home without specialized tools.

 

Variable Speed Throttle

Activates your super powers and allows you to control how much assist the motor gives you. Fits most handle bars (fits all flat bars, mountain, hybrid, cruisers, etc. may not fit some drop style road bars). Installs by sliding on, you must remove your grips first to install. Very easy to use and long lasting.

 

Charger

Charges your 48V battery in 4-5 hours. Optimized for Lithium-Ion chemistry, this charger ensures a long lifespan for your battery.

 

How to Install

 

FAQ

Disc Brake Compatibility

Yes, all Hilltopper wheels are disc brake compatible with standard spacing and 6-bolt rotor attachment. All of our wheels are also rim brake compatible giving you the most options to fit your bike!

For instructions on how to install a rotor on your new Hilltopper, check out the following video: https://youtu.be/ZxDQUXOZqps.

 

What is a variable speed throttle? How do I make sure it will fit on my handlebars?

Our variable speed throttle is just one piece of our kits that allows the rider to control the amount of power fed to the motor - kind of like a gas pedal!

The throttle is a versatile piece that can be installed on your handlebars and adjusted to whatever suits you and your bicycle best. We recommend putting the throttle on the left, placing them between the handlebar grip and the brake/shifter levers.

The most common type of handlebars on the market today would be a flat or riser handlebar. Our throttle is specifically made to match these handlebars with its 22.2mm grip diameter.

While the throttle grip is too small to fit most road bikes, drop bars, and any other handlebars with uncommon geometries, there is a pretty simple workaround - a handle bob (a quick Google search should get you plenty of result) can be attached to any of these handlebars for a quick and easy install.

Check out our video on how to install the variable speed throttle!

 

How Far Can I Go (Battery Range)?

• 36V 2020 Sprinter battery has 10 - 20+ miles of range.

• 36V Universal Battery Replacement has 20 - 25+ miles of range.

• 36V 2020 Horizon battery has 25 - 50+ miles of range.

• 48V Summit battery has 25 - 40+ miles of range.

Mileage rates are based on a 170 pound rider on a 30 pound bike on a flat paved surface, with no wind, using the motor and not pedaling. Your mileage may vary, though most people get more than advertised mileage. For the best possible mileage we suggest pedaling anytime the motor is engaged.

 

How Fast Can I Go?

All Hilltopper electric bikes and kits have a maximum speed of 20 mph. This keeps them street legal and compliant with state laws and city ordinances in the US.

For choosing a power system, here's what to keep in mind: The 36v, 350 watt kits (Horizon) can go 20 mph with minimal pedaling. This is great for steeper hills, faster commutes & carrying bigger loads.

The 36v, 250 watt kits (Sprinter) can go 15 mph with minimal pedaling on flat ground, but they perform best as a boost to your pedaling with pedaling required on hills. Perfect if you are looking for an added boost to your ride at an affordable price. Cuts your commute time by 25%, gives a boost up hills & puts a smile on your face.

 

How Do I Charge My Hilltopper?

For all of our electric bikes and conversion kits we've made sure charging is easy as can be. Just a few simple steps:

• Grab the charger supplied with your Hill Topper and plug it into the wall. For the best possible performance we recommend plugging directly into the wall, avoiding the use of extension cords and power strips whenever possible.
• Once the green light on the charger comes on, go ahead and plug the barrel end into the battery.
• When the charger is connected to the battery the light should turn from green to red to indicate that it is filling up the battery.
As soon as the battery is full the light will turn back to green so you know it's done.

That's it! Follow these steps and you can rest assured you'll be ready to roll!

 

When Should I Charge My Hilltopper?

You can charge your Hilltopper whenever you like! All of our batteries are smart batteries with no memory affect, so there is no need to drain it fully before recharging like you would with older battery types like NiCad or others.

Generally we suggest simply charging it after every ride, or at the end of the day if you are a regular commuter. That way you always know your battery is ready to go when you are.

If you are putting the bike away for the winter or just know you won't use it for some time, we suggest charging it fully first and storing it in doors. For the absolute best life of your battery we would also suggest plugging it back into the charger every month or so to keep it topped up. Before you ask, no, unfortunately we cannot suggest simply leaving the battery plugged into the charger long term.

 

Need a Bigger or Smaller Tire? No Problem!

All HillTopper kits come complete with a tire already installed so you can get going quickly. That said, our awesome tires might not be the best fit for you bike or your style. No problem, swapping out the tire to meet your needs or match your other wheel is super easy. Our rims can fit a wide variety of tires, everything from skinny road tires (25 mm minimum) to big 2.2" mountain tires.
