All DŌST riders should check their local laws and regulations before operating an electric bicycle. DŌST Bikes Inc is not responsible for any fines, and or punishments resulting from riders who do not follow their local laws and regulations.
DŌST Bikes meet all USA and Canadian regulations for eBikes. See below for details on each country.
In the USA, in majority of states, electric bikes are classified under a 3 class system. Depending on where in the USA you are located, these classifications may vary. As our bikes are able to be configured to all 3 different classification systems, all DŌST Bike models are street legal in the USA.
In Canada, the regulations are fairly straightforward. An eBike has operable pedals, has an electric motor of 500 watts or less and has a maximum speed capability of 32 km/hr from the motor while riding on level ground. Be advised that in Canada, other jurisdictions like municipalities and provinces may have specific regulations, so be sure to check in your area.
