Legal Questions

Are eBikes legal in the US?

Every state has its eBike regulation and policies that govern eBike legality. Delfast eBikes are completely legal in most states if you abide by local traffic laws and keep your speed under 20 mph on all public roads.

Are eBikes legal on public roads?

Yes, it is legal to ride your eBike on a public road but you must ride in the bike lane along with all other bicycles. If you choose, you can also register your eBike (though it’s not required).

Is it legal to own an electric bike?

Yes. Federal regulations limit electric motor power to 750W and speed to 20 mph when driven on public roads. These regulations apply to public roads and trails only - you can drive more freely (and in Unlimited Mode) on private land and off-road.

Do I need a special license to ride an electric bike?

In the US, the eBike classification varies from state to state. Some states classify eBikes as motorized vehicles. If that’s the case, you need to get your bike registered and get a license. If that’s not the case in your state, you do not need a license. We suggest you call your local authorities about state requirements before riding an electric bike.

Do I need to wear a helmet?

Yes, of course. This is the No.1 safety rule when riding any bike. Helmets are required even if you’re just taking a slow joy ride down your street. And if you ever wondered, “What kind of helmet do I need for an eBike?”, the answer is simple ‒ the same you would use for riding a motorcycle.
