GEM in-wheel motors of type G2.X and G1.X are designed as a direct drive motors and are typically mounted directly to a wheel of a vehicle. Motors of type G1.X are designed to be used with nominal 10’’ and motors of type G2.X are designed to be used with nominal 13’’ motorcycle or car tyres. Of course, other bigger tyre sizes can be used with both motor types, but speed and performance of the e-vehicle might be different from nominal performance. You are welcome to contact our experts and consultancy team if using tyre size other than nominal.

Our clients can choose from two different mounting options of the rims: Integrated rim or standard rim. Integrated rim is lighter and smaller, and its design is optimized for less mechanical stress on the GEM in-wheel motors. Standard rims option offers more flexibility, since you can use your existing rims of the shelf. GEM in wheel drive can be fast and professional customized to your needs.
