Maxon’s BIKEDRIVE is a permanent-magnet ironless-core electric bike motor that outperforms virtually everybody in terms of power density, acceleration, heat dissipation and overall efficiency.
Designed and manufactured in Switzerland, the maxon BIKEDRIVE electric bike conversion kit is extremely light and launches from 0 to 20 mph in less than 3 seconds.
This BikeDrive full-package includes the motor built into a DT Swiss Wheel with a 142mm axle, 48 Volt battery, charger, cables, and a quick-release or through-axle adapter to match your bike’s wheel setup.
Engineered to fit most high-end full-suspension mountain bikes, the maxon BIKEDRIVE system kit weighs only 13 lbs and allows you to instantly convert your bike into an electric bike that rides just like it did before.
BIKEDRIVE blasts out of the gates with 500 watts continuous while operating at an unheard of 85% efficiency (75% on steep hills). That’s over three times the efficiency of most electric bike motors. Over-heating BIKEDRIVE is impossible.
The BIKEDRIVE system weighs only13 lbs and provides the delicate balance professional riders demand. Most e-bikes don’t have the weight distribution necessary for serious riding because of excess weight and poor efficiency (over-heating). Only BIKEDRIVE is light enough to handle like a real mountain bike.
The maxon Powergrip that lets the rider choose from three twist-click positions and a full-grab throttle-boost to temporarily accelerate over demanding obstacles or for shooting out of corners with a throttle-like feeling.
BIKEDRIVE is the only system on the market that’s compatible with the new 148-mm (Boost) hub standard and 12-speed SRAM Eagle Drivetrain. Available with axle dropout widths of 135mm, 142mm or 148mm for bikes with quick-release axles or through-axles.
