How do Power Assisted Bikes operate ?
They are bikes equipped with a battery powering a quiet engine, located at the bottom of the drive which provides assistance at the first stroke of the pedal, allowing you to ride up slopes without difficulty.
In parallel, e-bikes, like any conventional bikes, also have shifters that allow you a maximum of accuracy in your ride. The assistance stops when you exceed 25km / h - thats the law; of course, this will not prevent you, in a descent for example, to ride as fast as 50km / h.
Our electric mountain bikes:
We opted for the Giant Dirt E power (men) and Liv Vall E (women) 27.5-inch reference mountain bikes, for robustness and reliability.
For sizes ranging from XS to L, equipped with 400 Wh or 500 Wh batteries, these bikes have a battery life ranging from about 80 to 100 km on paths without significant differences in level. Their 120 mm semi-rigid front fork will offer you flexibility of driving, both on roads and on tracks. They are equipped with a rear view mirror and a luggage rack, as well as vertical handles on the handlebars that will allow you to relax at your convenience.
Our rental operation:
We are based above Saint-Gilles, in Saint-Gilles les Hauts; you can of course pick up your bike on site. But the main principle of Formibike is to provide the bikes to your place of residence, to avoid you having to use your car! And this at no extra charge between Saline les Bains and St-Paul, or St-Gilles les Hauts.

The freedom to come and go being of great importance, you can enjoy our plastic maps with indicative notes fixed on the handlebars that will guide you through the chosen trails.
Several tracks are thus possible in a completely autonomous way, which will allow you to depend only on your own freedom.
It is also possible to opt for a guided trip; you will not worry anymore for a single moment about your itinerary, taking advantage of a professional guide who will communicate you his knowledge (botanical, historical, geographical & cultural aspects) on the intense island during your trip: the Tour des Roches, the forest of Etang-Salé, the volcano, the natural environments of the East, the heights of the West coast, the road along the beaches ...
