Geared vs DD motor hubs

Last Updated: Oct 04, 2016 10:10AM UTC
  • The geared has less friction when you pedal when  the motor is not running (less drag)
  • The geared hub has more climbing ability (more torque)
  • The geared hub is generally smaller than the direct drive
  • The direct drive has less moving parts so probably more reliable, geared hub are still very reliable.
  • The direct drive is faster
  • The direct drive makes less noise
  • The Magic/smart/edge has a built in controller so less wiring.
