No, instead of using a direct drive hub motor which would allow the RadRover to have regenerative braking enabled, we opted for a brushless geared hub motor which increases the efficiency on hills and at lower speeds. The geared hub motor also freewheels when you are coasting or just pedaling making it feel more like pedaling a regular bike without fighting cogging/magnetic resistance.
