evation pedelec drive system

Award   GOLD WINNER 2017
Category   Bike Components
Company   Fazua GmbH

evation is an innovative drive system for pedelecs that combines the benefits of two different worlds in a single unit, as the weight, handling and optics of a conventional bicycle are paired with the powerful on-demand motor support of a pedelec. The Drivepack, which weighs just 3.3 kg and houses the motor, electronics (1.92 kg) and Battery Pack (1.38 kg), can be installed and removed on the bike's downtube using a quick click release. This gives riders the ability to easily convert their bicycles into pedelecs and back again in no time at all. evation provides bicycle manufacturers with a way to simply integrate a powerful, lightweight and subtle drive system into their models.

Outstanding in the following evaluation criteria

  • Degree of innovation
  • Functionality
  • Added value

Jury Statement

Fazua is creating an entirely new segment with its evation drive. Motor and battery can be easily removed so that a normal bike remains. Lightweight design and ease of handling are further award-winning features of the evation drive. A number of bike producers have already come to the same conclusion and are using the system in their pedelecs – including those intended for the road bike segment.
