What is up, everybody? We're back with another in-depth review and this time we're looking at the Breeze from KBO. Spoiler alert: we like the bike. After testing it pretty thoroughly over the last couple of months, I think this is one of the nicer Ebikes at this price point. Now, I haven't ridden every Ebike at this price point, and I have a few more that are waiting to be tested, but for now, the Breeze is on top. It has a quality feel to it that alot of direct-to-consumer brands (again at this price point) don't have. It was a pleasure to ride and we've got all the specs below! Enjoy :)

Hey there! If memory serves, it was on and off (PAS 0 being off, and PAS 1-5 being on) Pretty sure you have access to the full power here. I went back and watched the review and didn't see myself switching PAS level to hit top speed, so I'm leaning towards On/Off. :)
