Mid drive

the ideal engine for an e-bike

The engine: the heart of every electric bicycle

An e-bike can be fitted with three different engines: on the front and rear wheel, as well as at the bottom bracket – the mid drive. The latter provides the most natural cycling experience as the engine assistance adjusts to your pedal effort.

The engine is one of the most important parts of the electric bike and, together with the battery, embodies the driving force behind a good support. Each e-bike engine features its own characteristics and impacts the bike’s riding behaviour. All engines of our QWIC electric bikes have been extensively tested and are among the best on the market. Our range of electric bikes with mid drives is extremely wide and diverse!

Why an e-bike with mid drive?

No matter which price range you are looking for, we offer a broad choice of award-winning bikes. QWIC e-bikes have been voted best electric bikes of the year. Thanks to collaborating with only the best manufacturers, we have been able to develop the most reliable and powerful engines the bicycle industry can offer.


The mid drive ensures perfect weight distribution and stability of the e-bike.

Powerful and smooth support

The electric bikes from QWIC feature the most powerful and modern mid drives available on the market. Our mid drives support you with at least 80Nm (Newtonmeter) torque and reach up to 90Nm. This makes cycling through hilly terrain and steep mountain slopes easier than ever before.

Efficient and trouble-free

The renewed mid-engine is more efficient and economical, offering you a larger range for cycling adventures. In addition, the mid drive is less prone to errors and failure. This is because the force sensor, usually mounted at the bottom bracket, is directly built into the QWIC engine. There, it instantly calculates how much support you need at any given moment.
