Altitude Powerplay

Integrated performance

Award   WINNER 2017
Category   E-Bikes & Pedelecs
Company   Rocky Mountain Bicycles

The Powerplay system is the result of designing an electric drive for the needs of mountain bikes. This is the first electric bike that actually rides like a mountain bike should. The bike has the same geometry and suspension performance as the Altitude platform. It is the first e-MTB that features a true aggressive trail ride feel. Our system allows true mountain bike performance, while providing class-leading torque, massive battery capacity, and quiet operation. A chain torque sensor provides smooth, instant power response, making for an intuitive ride with no learning curve. The 48v system provides short charge times, taking 2 hours to reach 80% capacity of the available 632Wh battery.

Outstanding in the following evaluation criteria

  • Functionality
  • Design
  • Added value

Jury Statement

We are thoroughly impressed by the way in which all components have been integrated in the Altitude Powerplay. Together with the other high-quality features, it clearly stands out from other e-mountain bikes thanks to the discreet integration of the motor.
