All new Products sold on the website are covered by the Legal Guarantee of Conformity provided for by art. 128-135 of the Consumer Code (“Legal Guarantee”). The Legal Guarantee is reserved for consumers. It, therefore, applies only to Customers who have made a purchase on the website for purposes unrelated to any entrepreneurial, commercial, craft or professional activity carried out. The warranty relates to manufacturing defects, it does not cover those of installation, exposure to humidity and heat sources, or improper use not provided for in the manual.
Fitting the device may void the bicycle’s factory warranty.
The functioning of the Products is guaranteed for the software version of the ebike indicated in the product sheet on the Site at the time of purchase. If the ebike is subsequently updated with software for which the Eplus solutions have not been tested, problems may occur in their operation, in which case Eplus does not respond with the warranty.
Eplus declines all responsibility for any anomalies or engine blocks caused by the anti-tuning protections that the motor manufacturers could activate.
2.11. After – sales assistance
For the products purchased on the website, a service is active that manages requests for technical assistance relating to the Products during the validity period of the legal warranty, out of warranty or not defective but, returned for repair, which have undergone software updates and / or reconditioning.
In order to use the Service, the Customer must send Eplus a specific communication EXCLUSIVELY by email addressed to: email@example.com specifying:
- the purchase receipt
- detailed description of the problem encountered, possibly attaching images and / or videos
Within 7 days of receiving the e-mail Eplus will assign a ticket number to the request and the Assistance Service will handle the request exclusively via email. If the problem is not solved, an RMA number will be assigned for the return of the Product, to be shown on the package in a clearly visible manner.
Any packages that will eventually be delivered to us without RMA authorization will not be collected.

Eplus Assistance Service
RMA No. … ..

15020 Camino AL – Italy
In the event of a lack of conformity duly reported within the terms, the Customer has the right to free repair or replacement of the goods and any repair and shipping costs to the Customer will be borne by Eplus. If, on the other hand, the Support Service does not find the lack of conformity, it will not be possible to apply the Legal Guarantee and, therefore, the transport costs and any repairs will be charged to the Customer.
Eplus will inform the Customer of the circumstance and any costs to be incurred for the repair, sending him the estimate so that the Customer can decide whether or not to have the repair carried out at his own expense. In all cases, the repair or replacement of the defective Products, if due, will be carried out as soon as possible and in any case, except in exceptional cases or force majeure, within 30 days from the day in which Eplus received the defective product.
Before activating the procedure for requesting assistance, it is necessary to read the manuals on the website (https://www.eplus.bike/assistenza/) relating to the purchased product. If the product sent for assistance proves to be functional following the instructions and procedures written in the manual, an amount equal to 25 € (shipping costs included) will still be due for internal management costs.
