What is nominal vs peak wattage?

Nominal output refers to the wattage level at which the motor can operate smoothly without encountering any issues; it represents the recommended operating power.

Peak output, on the other hand, is the maximum amount of watts that the motor can produce. Running the motor at this peak level for an extended period can cause it to overheat. If the motor overheats, the power output may be restricted or even shut off until the motor has cooled down. Fortunately, Favoritebikes includes a feature to safeguard your bike, protecting it from potential overheating by automatically managing these power levels.
