We use FOC to rotate our e-bike motors. It means that a motor (and a bicycle too) will work more quietly and efficiently. We already tested our motors in Krakow and now we should test it on hills with gradients > 12% (we had tests on these hills with our old controller last Autumn).

Many thanks, Wojtek who provided a very cute house near Nowy Targ where we stayed for a few days. The weather was not very nice. Not nice for cycling but very suitable to check out how is our handlebar bag waterproof and finish our transport map. We put a bike with a bag under the rain for a few hours and everything inside a bag was dry.

After a few tests, we found that motor twitches when you try to start on steep ascents. It's possible that we start using sensorless mode on low rpm (revolutions per minute). We will think about how to fix it because it annoys a lot. But anyway Vekkit kit works very quietly and smoothly. Sometimes we didn't hear any noise at all.
