Dangerholm is known worldwide for his bike conversions, so as expected, this is not his first project. But one thing is completely new for him! Scott threw him a curveball - the first conversion of an electrified mountain bike – the already super light Scott Lumen eRIDE with our TQ-HRP50.
The very clear goal is: Build the lightest e-MTB in the world.
So how do you build the lightest e-MTB in the world? Of course, it is so much easier said than done. A challenge bigger than Dangerholm’s thighs with an ambitious goal. Because it is not enough just to replace a few components such as wheels, forks and shocks. It takes not only the skill and creativity of Dangerholm, but also the inventive spirit and commitment of many manufacturers who came together to achieve this goal.
Even though the HPR50 is already inherently the lightest, quietest and smallest e-bike system in its class, our product managers and developers put everything on the line and worked with partners who made it possible for our system to become even lighter. Let’s get real deep into the tech.
Starting with the drive unit itself, the small powerhouse conversion:
The most energy dense HPR50 360 Wh Battery conversion:
The new cable harness has also allowed for weight savings.
In total, the custom TQ-HPR50 components have saved a whole 278 g. That does not sound like much at first, but we're playing in a league where every single gram counts. In the end, an astonishing 12.9 kg (incl. pedals) stood on the scale, beating the already ambitious 15.5 kg.
