Giant Bicycles has launched their new 2017 electric bike line up of Full E+ mountain bikes, Road E+ road bikes, and their commuter style Quick E+.
Giant has been making electric bikes since the 1990’s and this year they are stepping things up with this new line, especially with increased distribution of their eBikes in the North American market.
Their eBikes use the Giant HCT (Hybrid Cycling Technology) drive system that is based on the 500 watt 80Nm Yamaha mid drive motor, 400Wh or 500Wh EnergyPack integrated frame battery, PedalPlus 4-sensor technology, and RideControl display & control pad with Bluetooth integration.
Here is a video about the Giant HCT drive system:
The Giant SyncDrive Sport (Powered by Yamaha) provides 500 watts of power with 80Nm of torque. Also in this picture is the Giant Maestro rear suspension design found on their conventional full suspension mountain bikes.
Here’s a look at the RideControl EVO display and control pad near the left grip.
