American e-bike manufacturer Hi-Power Cycles (HPC) offers everything from cargo and folding bikes to commuters and mountain bikes. You may have even seen them on an episode of Top Gear. Now, they think they’re changing the downhill market with their Revolution AT fat e-bike.
The world’s first downhill fat e-bike
The Revolution AT from HPC is built in-house at their L.A facility. The frame is made of 6061-T6 aluminum and is paired with a CNC machined aluminum swingarm. They built it with a do-all mentality thus giving it 4.8″ Maxxis Minion tires, a 14-speed Rohloff internally geared hub with a 526% gear ratio, and a 200mm DVO Emerald Fat fork to go with the 230mm travel from the Jade rear shock. The idea is to crush downhills and skip the shuttle line, and offer a bit more traction than the average DH bike.
The 76lb bike is fueled by your choice of battery 1008Wh – 2400Wh and power outputs of 1500W – 3000W. Available chargers ranging from 6hr down to 2hr charge times. Plus, there’s an optional Magura wireless dropper post for an additional $500. Prices vary based on battery, charger, and lights. The standard $13,200 build comes with a range of 45 miles, a 1500W output, and the 6hr charger. Want all the options? Then it will run an eye watering $18,200.
The HPC Revolution AT is available in 9 colors including red, black, raw alum, green, light blue, blue, black, pink, and white. Custom rim colors are available to match.
