The Armadillo is electrically assisted. We really want to highlight the word assisted. The electric assist system has a force sensor, which means that you will always need to contribute to some degree to get the Armadillo moving.
Health benefits even at maximum electric assist
If you don’t want more exercise than a light walk, just put the assist level to maximum. No sweat will be broken, but that light exercise will still give a huge health benefit compared to just sit in a car seat.
The harder you push, the faster you go
The force sensor and soft cutoff at 25 km/h will also always reward harder pedalling with more speed. So the Armadillo will always encourage you to turn fat into leg muscle and get some good cardiovascular exercise!
