Greyp electrical bikes enter US
Greyp’s e-bikes had been born out of a facet venture of Mate Rimac, the founding father of Rimac Automobili. The bikes rapidly advanced into award-winning designs that embraced Rimac’s status for innovation. Whereas Greyp’s electrical bicycles aren’t fairly as quick or high-powered as Rimac Automobili’s electric supercars, they’re almost as tech-infused.
The corporate’s flagship G6 line is a full-suspension electrical mountain bike. I had the pleasure of attending its release last year in Zagreb, Croatia, and let’s simply say that the bike was completely well worth the lengthy flight.
The bike incorporates a pedal assisted vary of as much as 100 km from its 700Wh battery. The swappable battery makes up a central design component within the Greyp G6 body.
The Greyp G6 line has built-in 4G connectivity with a T-Cell eSIM card that permits it to obtain over-the-air updates in addition to combine with cell apps on each iOS and Android platforms. Along with commonplace automobile diagnostics and telemetrics discovered in lots of linked e-bikes, the G6 line has a pair of built-in excessive definition large angle cameras on the entrance and rear of the bike to offer hands-free imaging throughout driving.
The cameras can be utilized for livestreaming (with the contact of a button on the handlebars for distant digicam operation) or for saving thrilling moments from a trip. A number of riders also can view the digicam feed from different bikes of their group in actual time, and even from all over the world, on telephone screens mounted on the handlebars. An indication we noticed on the discharge night time confirmed two riders participating in a stay race via the town, which we might watch on jumbo screens within the occasion corridor. The race ended with the primary rider bursting via the door and driving up onto the stage — fairly a formidable efficiency after watching the first-person view stay and following the rider’s journey to the presentation.
The day after the disclosing final yr, I had the possibility to do an extensive ride across a rocky and mountainous Croatian island. Take a look at the trip video beneath to see how the bike carried out. (Spoiler alert, it was epic!)
The bikes additionally embrace different sensors together with built-in GPS for navigation, accelerometer, and barometer. The GPS may even present a real-time vary estimation primarily based on the battery remaining and the course the rider is planning to take. A wrist-strap coronary heart charge monitor can be included as an adjunct that modifies the motor output in actual time to take care of the rider’s desired coronary heart charge.
Along with the tech, the precise G6 bikes are additionally fairly good too. They function carbon fiber frames, RockShox Monarch rear shocks and Yari RC Debonair forks, a mid-drive MPF 6.0C motor, suspended seat put up, SRAM EX1 transmission, Components Cura 2-piston hydraulic disc brakes and customized Greyp pedals and handlebars.
They don’t come low-cost although, with three completely different fashions of Greyp G6.1, 6.2 and 6.3 priced at $7,999, $8,499 and $8,999 in the US.
Greyp additionally has a hardtail model referred to as the Greyp G5 that was unveiled at Eurobike last year. It isn’t out there but within the US, however will quickly be. When it joins the G6 stateside, will probably be priced at between $5,499 and $6,499.
Greyp mentions that “different fashions” will likely be out there for particular order. That presumably refers back to the firm’s insanely highly effective Greyp G12 e-bike, a 12kW full suspension beast that’s virtually extra motorbike than bicycle.
Having ridden a Greyp G6, I can attest to how unbelievable the bike is.
The early model I rode had just a few tech hiccups with the app often quitting out, however the bike had simply been unveiled to the press and the corporate was nonetheless tweaking the software program.
Tech apart, the Greyp G6 line is a premium electrical mountain bike. It’s outfitted with top-shelf elements, has a snug trip geometry that’s appropriately aggressive whereas nonetheless offering a pleasurable trip, and the bike can maintain its personal towards some of the best electric mountain bikes out there.
Then while you add in all of the high-tech options that Greyp constructed into the G6, the bike actually stands by itself.
If something, there’s virtually an excessive amount of tech. I’m certain many riders received’t even be capable to make the most of the entire options out there. However for riders who aren’t price-sensitive and are on the lookout for a premium electrical mountain bike that’s not like anything, that is it.
