Designed in Canada, the Rocky Mountain Powerplay™ drive system is a sleek, lightweight, and powerful electric assist that pushes the boundaries of electric bikes.
Its compact, low-mounted motor allows us to design electric mountain bikes to our suspension and handling standards—with proper geometry and ideal pivot placement. The system provides class-leading torque, ultra quiet operation, instant power response, and super fast charging.
When you step on the pedals, the Dyname 3.0 drive delivers immediately. Competitive systems can exhibit lag, apply power too abruptly (causing wheel spin or loss of control), and generally introduce odd sensations to riding. With Powerplay, beginning on a hill is easier than ever. Getting up to speed is simple. Dyname's electro-mechanical torque sensor measures chain tension through movement of a magnetic field, providing instant input to the brain of the drive. Less lag. More power.
Dyname needs to crunch numbers quickly, and lend support to the rider even more rapidly. When the chain moves, Dyname reacts instantaneously. How? Every time the chain straightens out, a magnetic field sensor measures the chain position. This sensor measures 1000 times per second. This extreme sensitivity helps maintain traction on greasy trails, allows for subtle torque modulation on complex terrain, and produces a natural-feeling power output.
It’s a question we hear about eMTB batteries all too often. The answer isn’t simple. Are you hammering flat fire roads, or turbo-lapping steep, technical singletrack? In the south of France on a warm summer day, or submerged in the deep dark dank of a North Shore winter? eMTB batteries can only take you as far as your legs go, but Powerplay elevates every rider to their potential.
Dyname spins at 1200 RPM (1/4 the competition's speed). Less whine. More efficiency.
Tuned to the key of human
Specifically designed to an MTB-friendly cadence and real world singletrack riding. No spinning out.
Virtual quads kick in when you need them and stand down when you don't.
A motor's intuition
Seamless power modulation between drive and human. Dyname reads your rhythm and responds to your ride.
Three patents. In-house customization. Limitless design freedom.
The bottom bracket is part of the bike, not the drive. No creaking, less wear, and local shops can service it. We love local shops.
While developing the first-ever Rocky Mountain eMTB, we refused to be held hostage by existing drive designs. We built the drive to fit the bike, not the other way around. For ten years, our engineers dreamed, created, tested and meticulously improved upon Dyname until they got it right. The Dyname drive is compact, powerful, and smooth. It facilitates pure, unbridled design freedom, as evidenced by the seamless integration of the RIDE-9 adjustment system.
