From April 28 to May 1, the Bike Festival returns to Riva del Garda.
Lots of market novelties to try, races, expo area, parties… In short, everything that can make the hearts of all enthusiasts beat! More than 60,000 are expected at the Bike Festival booths for a start of the season with a bang.
A four-day festival dedicated to the world of MTB and EMTB, but not only!
All 2023 models will be on display at the Bikel booth, with a special focus on the bicycle touring sector. Free test bikes will frame the new expo area located along the shore of beautiful Lake Garda.
During the festival over 1,000 mtb and e-mtb bikes will be available for free testing.
We look forward to seeing you at our R6 booth with lots of news and offers!
Running parallel to the expo area of the festival is a rich program of sporting events and competitions such as:
Scott Bike Marathon to be held on Saturday morning starting from the center of Riva del Garda;
Funduro, an absolute fun course with this year’s novelty: 2 types of rankings and special prizes!
Lake Bash: For the first time in the history of the festival a Gravel Challenge!
It will be held on Sunday and you decide whether to experience it as your own race or as a tour. On a 100 km course, time is taken on only three sections. Anything that happens in between does not count for ranking purposes. So there is plenty of time to chat, ride together and enjoy the breathtaking nature of Lake Garda.
Many other challenges and events await, even for the little ones, fun is guaranteed!
With the new Polini E-Bike App (available for iOS and Android) you can easily, intuitively and immediately manage all the qualities of the E-P3+ and E-P3+ MX motor, adapting all the settings to your needs.
The app allows you to view the entire e-bike display on your smartphone screen, offering a more practical and clearer view of all data.
The app allows you to quickly and directly manage the 3 standard maps (Touring, Dynamic and Race), lights, assistance levels and trip statistics, with the possibility to reset the “trip”.
With diagnostics control you can also keep an eye on the health of your engine, battery and the entire system.
You can also create 2 new custom mappings: “Custom 1” and “Custom 2”, acting on the 5 assistance levels and the as many engine torque “limits” provided.
The whole customization is made more convenient thanks to the possibility of changing the parameters directly by clicking on top of the graphs, moving the control points manually, or entering the precise parameters in the appropriate “assistance” and “limit” bars.
Also customizable is the motor cut-off time, that is, the rate at which the motor stops giving support once you stop pedaling: from 0% (immediate cut-off) to 100% (you can count on a slight boost provided by the motor for a short time).
Of course, once you have set your custom settings, just save the map (Sync button) to use it whenever you want.
Upgrading the firmware (an operation that can only be done by specialized Bikel or Polini personnel) also makes it possible to:
detect the rider’s thrust more accurately and adjust/improve engine response
manage power in situations of less grip, modifying and expanding the dynamics of the Dynamic and Race mappings (levels 3-5-4)
improve the “walk” function
make e-bikes for hire by default and lock on Turing map
