GIANT uses the PW-X mid-mounted engines, but calls the system “SyncDrive Pro” Delivering superior power output for performance-minded E-bike riders, SyncDrive Pro represents the most advanced motor technology in Giant’s latest line of E-bikes. SyncDrive Pro hardware is produced by Yamaha, and the software is programmed by Giant. The result of this partnership is a lightweight and powerful pedal-assist technology that’s tuned to give riders a seamless power boost for performance riding applications.
The new SyncDrive Pro offers five support modes (Eco, Tour*, Active, Sport and Power) and powerful assistance with a maximum support ratio of 360%. This means that, in the “Power” mode, 100% of human torque input offers 360% of pedal-assist power. Even the weight and the measurements have been slightly reduced (in comparison to Yamaha PW-X)
For performance-minded riders, this motor offers 80Nm of powerful support up to 120 max rpm in the three upper support modes (Active, Sport, Power). The rider experiences no power loss at higher cadences, which makes steep climbs more accessible and comfortable. At the two entry support modes, the rider is rewarded with 110 max rpm and 80Nm of motor torque. SyncDrive Pro is also tuned to give a quick and direct response to pedalling. It delivers 100% of 80Nm of motor torque in less than 190 milliseconds.
RideControl EVO represents state-of-the-art design and aesthetics. Clean, rounded corners give it an elegant look and feel. And with its aluminium housing, the new RideControl EVO is more shockproof and durable, even on rough terrain.
The handlebar-mounted command centre provides easy-to-operate controls with a more ergonomic button that controls the display and support levels in a comfortable way. The RideControl display has a central position and is multi-adjustable. It provides riders with the following important information: Battery level indicator, support level indicator and general indicators like speed, distance etc.
ECO The lowest power assist level can be used for riding urban and suburban roads when minimal assistance is needed. Eco level requires less battery capacity and helps you cover greater distances.
NORMAL This support level is good for hills and country roads. It helps riders complete longer distances with less effort and fatigue.
POWER The Power level gives you the highest power boost to climb steep hills. It’s the perfect choice when you’re riding the most challenging mountains and terrain.
Connected: The RideControl EVO keeps you connected while it offers USB charging possibilities.
