THE LIMITATIONS OF CONVENTIONAL MID-DRIVES...
Mid-drive ebikes are an excellent option for those who desire high performance, but they rely on regular bicycle parts for handling the motor-assist power. The problem is that standard components were only designed to withstand human pedaling power. As such, the amount of power you can reasonably supply with a mid-drive motor is restricted by the strength of these components. While technologies such as shift & brake sensors have greatly improved mid-drive reliability, it still has it's limitations. Even at a power cap 750W or 1000W, breakdowns can occur if you push the bike too hard or fail to use the gears properly.
Getting plenty of power to the rear wheel is exciting, but has always come at the risk of ongoing costs in replacement parts, and time lost riding. Many casual to moderate riders will not ride hard enough to cause such issues. But for those who want to push the limits, a more robust solution was needed to build the dream e-bike machine, with extreme endurance.”

HEAVY DUTY PARTS
See the difference side-by-side. The XD employs tough 219 chain and a thick alloy sprocket. These heavy-duty components can handle 10x the forces that a regular chain and sprocket could. The XD is over-engineered for extreme durability.
HUB DRIVE VS. MID DRIVE?
TRY DUAL DRIVE.
The redundancy and ruggedness of hub motors, paired with the poise, performance, and gearing advantages of traditional mid-drives…
It's the best of both worlds.
Never worry about shifting gears under power, with instantaneous power delivery to the rear wheel, regardless of pedal cadence or gearing.
The powertrain between your motor and the road operates with 10 to 1 reduction, optimized for a sporty feel with precise control, while the Dynamic Tensioner maintains low noise from the XD system.
Peace of mind is yours, knowing you've got both pedal and motor power available to get you home, on independent drive systems.
The typical disadvantages of mid-drive systems are solved, providing a dependable daily-riding workhorse, ready to conquer commuting, cargo, and new challenges in life.
We figured one of the best ways to prove out the XD Drive system was in the wild, so we configured our first bikes around these rough and tumble outings (along with regular servings of roads and trails!). Year-round ride tested, rain, snow, and lots of sun.
Following in the fat-tire footsteps of the Juggernaut, the new XD models will climb higher, cross country quicker, and keep on trucking, no matter the duties and terrain.
Canadian winters? Not a problem.
The XD system breaks new ground, reaching levels of performance and reliability that were previously unachieved with the ebike form factor.
DESIGNED & BUILT
The XD Drive system was developed in Saskatoon, Canada, by a team of e-bike enthusiasts with a shared passion for better solutions to transportation. The global pandemic conditions forced them to improvise, adapt, and overcome, tackling the bike parts shortages, chip shortages, shipping shortages, and forces of nature simultaneously throughout development. The resulting product and its manufacturing approaches are primed for navigating such challenges with agility, and competitive in-house solutions.
Our answer to the manufacturing challenges, to ensure rapid development and in-house production, was to bring as much of the process as possible Locally.
Whether it's engineering, fabrication, PCBs and programming, machining, anodizing, powder-coating, metals, composites or plastics, we've trained ourselves to get it done right, and produce results quickly, with Quality our entire team can be proud of.
