What is Infinity Control System?
Infinity Control System is the in-house hardware on the base of PLC (programmable logic controller). This is the unit that with the frequency of more than 10 times per second sends commands to the motor regarding the required assist level. Infinity Control System is positioned between the motor and the battery and connected to them with cables.
Together with the in-house software Infinity Control System permits to monitor and adjust energy consumption, check the heart rate, switch between riding modes and lots more.
Both Infinity Control System and the Smartphone App are fully developed by in-house team of Engineers and Programmers.
How do I control my bike?
You need to download the app first and login to activate your Infinity.
With the App you can control the battery status, calories burnt, speed, heart rate, elevation gain and other parameters. Navigate with built-in maps, save and share your rides with Infinity Ride Club.
What are the riding modes?
There’re two main riding modes: Power and Cardio.
In Power riding mode the motor provides a fixed assistance in terms of watts and not the speed. You can manually select the desired assistance level using the App. Read more about Power riding mode.
In Cardio riding mode the motor assistance is automatically adjusted by Infinity Control System based on the cyclist’s heart rate and pre-selected training program (it is possible to use cardio modes only with a BT cardio Smart sensor, like Polar, Wahoo, Garmin etc, paired with the Smartphone). Read more about Cardio Assist.
Riding modes (available without use of cardio sensors):
Walk, Run, Turbo: constant preset speed, speed level increases from one mode to another.
Power riding modes:
Eco: 40 Watts of constant assistance from the motor, ideal mode for long rides and flat routes (guarantees the autonomy of about 6 hours with the battery Pack250)
Tour: 80 Watts of constant assistance from the motor, ideal for short trainings with the fixed assistance (guarantees the autonomy of about 3 hours with the battery Pack250)
T Power: user chooses himself the desired fixed assistance to receive from the motor (min 40 Watt – max 250 Watt)
Riding modes (available only using cardio sensors):
HRW Power: user sets the minimum and maximum heart rate values and Infinity control system adjusts the motor’s power during the ride increasing the assistance as the heartbeat tends to reach the chosen maximum.
Fat Burn: user sets his heart rate zones in the dedicated App section and Infinity control system adjusts the motor’s power in the way to ensure the user always stays in the lighter training heart zone, doing thus aerobic exercise aimed at fat burning.
Endurance: user sets his heart rate zones in the dedicated App section and Infinity control system adjusts the motor’s power in the way to ensure the user stays in the training heart rate zone to improve his athletic condition. In this mode mostly sugars are burnt but the user always stays below the anaerobic effort threshold.
What is Cardio Assist?
It is an innovative system that adjusts the motor power based on you heart rate level. The higher heartbeat you get, the more assistance you receive from the motor.
Infinity team of engineers and programmers has developed hardware and software that put into practice a simple concept that heart rate level is directly proportional to the effort made by cyclist.
Therefore, as the effort increases, the motor assistance increases as well, and, thanks to a continuous bio-feedback, this smart assist keeps the heart rate stable within the selected training program. Read more about Cardio Assist.
Why does Infinity ebike keep me FIT?
There are several reasons for it:
- There’re no riding modes with constant speed. All the riding modes are fitness oriented.
- Cardio riding mode introduced by Infinity offers the most efficient way of training. Read more about Cardio Assist.
- Power riding mode permits you to join any group of cyclists no matter how strong they are and get the same work out as they do while getting a fixed motor assistance in terms of watts and not the speed. You will be able to go at the speed of the group, but will feel all the climbs, change in wind and surface same way as cyclists without assist.

Can I use the bike without smartphone?
It is possible to use your bike without smartphone depending on the mode that you choose.
If you are to ride in Power mode and don’t need to observe parameters of your ride you would need your smartphone just in the beginning to set the assistance level, after what you can put it aside. Infinity Control System would manage the motor assistance independently.
In Cardio riding mode instead, you would need your Smartphone to be always active, since the information on the heart rate is transmitted directly from the phone to Infinity Control System.
