Class 1 Pedal Assist (PAS) electric bikes have an electric drive system that can only be activated through a pedaling action and is limited to relatively low speeds (20 mph). There are no throttles on a Class 1 ebike (if there is a throttle, whether or not the ebike also has PAS, then it is categorized as Class 2).
This collection is wide-ranging, and some of our favorites PAS-only ebikes include:
