The advantage is that it's an inexpensive way to get some sort of pedal-assist onto the bike, but the disadvantage is that the pedal assistance can feel jerky, laggy, and counterintuitive. Also if you want to pedal faster than the motor is spinning, the motor will actively work against your efforts.  

2. Torque Sensors (Advanced)

The torque sensor is a totally different technology that uses a  precision strain gauge. It measures your actual force on the pedal, sampling at 1,000 times per second over the entire pedal stroke. 

The harder you pedal, the more power it gives to the motor. If you pedal lighter, less power goes to the motor. It makes this adjustment in real-time so it is technically amplifying your every input. It feels like you are bionic. 

Most higher-end e-bikes use torque sensors and in some countries, cadence-only sensors are not allowed to be sold. The disadvantage is the cost is significantly higher to implement this technology as the precision component is relatively more expensive. 


Many people will assume that a torque sensor is ideal and represents the gold standard for PAS control and that the basic PAS sensors represent a poor but inexpensive alternative. We don't think it's that simple, as people who prefer to regulate motor power independently from their pedal effort will be better served with a basic PAS setup.
