My Bomber doesn't like mountains.

@Jamesgw , try gearing down to a smaller gear, ease off the throttle a bit and pedal more. Although the Bomber is a super high speed ebike, all electric bikes have a point that is too much, especially in a really hot humid climate where the controller has a hard time cooling. Can you give us a little more info on the hills that are tripping the overheat mode?

Pedal more. Lower your gear and help the bike (Its got pedals and a $1,000 gear box for a reason), also keep your momentum up, stops and specifically restarts use a lot of watts.

Ive been up hills steep enough on my bomber that the front wheel spent very little time touching the ground.
