Rhinos are equipped with a 7-speed Shimano Altus Trigger Shifter drivetrain. These gears are there to help you ride more efficiently on the flat as well as any hills in your area.
You can use gears in combination with your throttle and pedal-assist at any point when you’re out on your ride. Just use the trigger shifter on the right-hand handlebar.
Here are a few tips on making the most of the gears while riding:
When to shift into a lower gear
- Slowing down or coming to a stop so it is easier to start pedaling again and accelerate faster
- Starting to climb a hill so you can maintain the same pedal cadence as the incline increases
When to shift into a higher gear
- You’ve accelerated to a comfortable speed and you’re ready to cruise. This will help you bike further and faster with each pedal stroke
- Starting to ride down a hill so you can stay in control of your pedals as your speed increases
