Does the first gear on the woom 3 AUTOMAGIC make hill climbing easier? What benefits does the first gear provide?

The first gear on the woom 3 AUTOMAGIC offers less pedal resistance than the second gear. Its primary function is to make it easier for kids to get started from a stop before they’ve picked up speed. The first gear may also make for an easier time dealing with an incline or a headwind, but not necessarily since this depends on the Rider’s speed.

If a Rider approaches a hill and maintains a speed over 7 mph, they will remain in second gear. Hence, the main purpose of the first gear is to assist young Riders as they push off from a standstill.
