Switching & adjusting assist modes in the app

Ampler is in the process of moving to an in-house built connectivity platform, which means new firmware, mobile application and backend systems. In this period of transition, there are bikes that are running the previous firmware and the new one, which means two apps are available simultaneously for some time. Read more about where to download each app and when the new app will be available to you here.

The strength of the motor support can be regulated in two support modes, but, thanks to our torque sensor, is always based on your input on the pedals. There is no need to switch between those two support modes during your ride.
You can switch between both modes through the power button or the app - read more on how to switch modes in the app below.

Danger

Do not switch modes, make adjustments in the app, or use the power button while riding.

To switch between modes on your smartphone, connect the Ampler app with your bike and tap on the icon on the bottom right of your screen.
You can switch between "Default" (assist level 70%) and "Max" (assist level 100%).

You can also switch the motor assist off. This only switches off the motor support, but has no impact on your lighting settings.

To individually adjust the modes, tap the control icon next to the mode you want to change.
You can now set your maximum assist speed and configure the assist amount. At a lower assist speed, the motor gradually stops supporting at your set speed. The assist amount regulates the push from the motor, depending on your pedal input. Lowering these values can prolong your battery range.

Note on maxmimum speed

In accordance with EU regulations, the motor will not push anymore over a speed of 25 km/h at 250 W. In our case the support gently tapers off so it is less noticeable once the bike switches to leg-power only. The private road mode available for Ampler Bikes before 2019 makes it possible to adjust the speed up to 35 km/h and 350W - for private road use only.
 I am using the previous Ampler App

The bike comes with two standard assist mode settings: "Normal" & "Boost".

  • To switch between modes on your smartphone, connect the Ampler app with your bike and tap on the icon on the bottom right of your screen.

If you set your assist mode to 0 in the Ampler Bikes app dashboard, you can ride with only the lights on and without any motor support.

You can adjust the standard assist modes within the Ampler app under "Vehicle"

  • max speed – the speed at which the electric assist stops helping you, the maximum here is 25 km/h*
  • max power – increase or decrease your acceleration. The maximum here is always 250 W*
  • power multiplier – how much the motor assists you in proportion to your input. 100% means default, 150% simply means 50% more than default.
