Figured you'd have a fit if I ran that chart. I figured the results were relevant enough to run it anyway - with a disclaimer clearly stating "Best" can be viewed a hundred ways. See which YOU would prefer!". And you still get mad....eZee motors are known for the high quality build. The simulator doesn’t address build quality. But hey what would I know from actually having built with both and run both. Argument? surely not you...
Don't be fixated by the watt ratings, take them with large grains of salt. In the first place, hub motors should be rated by how much torque they can produce rather than how many watts they can produce, but even this figure could be subject to much variation and will be difficult to compare across manufacturers and vendors.
- Motors don't have fixed power ratings. The sustainable power output of a given motors depends very much on the RPM at which it is spinning. At a higher RPM a given motor can produce more power.
- Motors can handle substantially more power for short times than they can sustain continuously, and that short term power is usually all you need for getting to the top of a steep hill.
- When ebike companies talk about a motor power, there is no standard at all for whether this is a continuous power rating, a peak output power rating, or a peak input power rating, or something stamped on the product for legal compliance. When Grin talks about a rated motor power, we treat it as some broad ballpark order-of-magnitude kind of thing.
