ANT+/BLE Wireless Module 

It is required for wireless mode. It allows you to connect the motor to your smartphone and control the parameters by using a Falco Flash BLE app. You can have full control and set the parameters according to your requirements. Resetting parameters, increasing or decreasing the level of assistance, changing modes, readouts, and many more features are available. 

Wired Console

Console is an e-bike computer display. It consists of a five feet cable that directly plugs into the motor. No need for charging the console or pairing with the motor. Simply plug it into the motor, switch it on, and start riding. It comes with a wireless plus/minus controller which allows you to change the power levels, applying the brake, and setting circumference. 

Wired Plus/Minus

The wired plus/minus is a controller that allows you to control the power levels; increase or decrease the levels. Easy to change pedal-assist or regeneration mode and apply the brake, and use reverse mode in trikes. 



Wired Plus/Minus and Wireless Module

Both can be used simultaneously. It allows you to pair it with your smartphone app. Using wired plus/minus allows you to have a hassle-free ride. By using this combination, you can easily set the parameters, and also you can ride without connecting your phone by using wired plus/minus. 

ANT+/BLE Wireless Module and Wired Console 

Both ANT+/BLE Wireless Module and Wired Console cannot be used simultaneously. Either you can use ANT+/BLE Wireless Module or Console. When you want to use the smartphone app to set the parameters or monitor the torque sensor readings, you need an ANT+/BLE wireless module. If you are going to have a regular ride.

Plenty of power to give me a wonderful ride

I am a 71 year old who is experiencing the joy of biking once again, thanks to the Falco ebike system. After researching many different systems, I am so glad I decided on Falco. The gearless motor is silent, yet provides plenty of power to give me a wonderful ride without tiring me out. I love riding my recumbent bike now that it has the Falco kit. I highly recommend this system. Greg Cuff


I have been using this system for several years on a Trek 9.2 frame and it is fantastic. The charge lasts through 10 miles of hilly commuting every day. I installed the system myself and support has been very helpful with any issues coming up over the years. Nicholas D.

It is Great!

I just wanted to let you know that my e5.3 eBike System was successfully installed by my local bike store and I took it out for its first ride yesterday. Long story short, it was great! I kept it on 1 most of the time and still was able to keep up with my friend riding her DF. This was the first time ever I was able to do that without wearing myself out. 18.6 miles of rail/trail riding on crushed limestone made easy by the e5.3. Best investment I've ever made except for my 559 that is. Thank you again for all the help you gave me in selecting the unit. Jeanne Clayton

Can not get enough of this

I have now been riding my Falco for six months. The ride experience has been quite good. I have a HP Velotechnic and I have been using it for a number of long rides. So far the battery range has been 60+ miles. I have two batteries and I do not want to take a chance with just a single battery. I can say Falco is the best option when it comes to electric assist.

Great Kit! Clean to Install

Great kit. Very clean to install with minimal wires showing. Works very smoothly and quietly. Had some problems initially with the quality control but after some perseverance with Rakesh and Cameron over at Falco, we got it working exactly the way I wanted it. I am very happy with my purchase now, and I have two friends who after riding it, want one for themselves. I'm so happy I went for it. I ride so much more often now that I can go anywhere. I ride to work, to the gym, on errands, anywhere I would normally drive. It's been a life changer for me. I love it and I'm getting a great tan. Barry Barnett
