Before riding your E-Bike, be sure to understand the rules and regulations in your local area.
Note: Riders must ride safely and respect the laws governing E-Bike use where they ride. Always know the rules of the road, operate the bike within local and all applicable laws, and ride responsibly and with respect for other people, cyclists, vehicles, etc.
Riders should confirm the following details with local law enforcement to learn about their local rules and regulations for E-Bikes:
- E-Bike peak power limit
- Top speed
- Throttle usage
Note: Do not use the throttle unless you are on the bike. Always keep one hand on the brake lever and be prepared to squeeze the lever to disengage the throttle if needed, or turn off the bike to prevent accidentally engaging the throttle.
The table below summarizes how E-Bikes are classified in the US:
|Motor Wattage Allowance

Taking an E-Bike on an Airplane
Bandit E-Bikes are not permitted on planes with the battery due to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations. The 672 watt hour (Wh) battery our models use is beyond the maximum Wh allowed by the FAA.
You could ship your E-Bike via FedEx, UPS, DHL, or another freight carrier, or contact your airline for other delivery options.
