What a machine!  Feels just like a regular bike, there's no need to think about a longer braking distance, pedal drag or weight, as it’s even possible to ride the bike with the assistance switched off.  This is an E-Bike for a mountain biker, with all the benefits of a regular bike.  With added assistance to get you up those hills faster to enjoy riding further and for even longer. 

We're excited to say we have a small allocation of this beauty when stocks become available.  If you want to find out how you can secure your new dream machine, get in touch with Chris or Sarah today.

Here's the tech:

The Lumen features a 360Wh internal battery which can be further complemented by a 160Wh external range extender. Thanks to TQ’s electronic expertise, the HPR50 battery, when combined with the range extender, guarantees maximum performance right through until empty.

TQ is a German company founded in 1994 who specialize in electric components across a range of industries. The HPR50 delivers an unprecedented weight/power ratio of 1.8 kg for 50Nm. With a diameter of 8 cm, TQ has innovated by using a harmonic gear system. This results in a lighter bike, better integration, while reducing backlash for a more natural pedalling sensation. This technology also allows for the reduction in system noise for a truly natural experience. After all, you are in the outdoors to, well, enjoy the outdoors.

The TQ motor allows us to keep a standard Q-factor with a 55mm chain line – exactly the same as the Scott Spark. This allows us to do a few interesting things. Firstly, we can guarantee great tire clearance while not sacrificing stiffness – which is key when it comes to power transfer. Secondly, it gives you the exact same rider stance and pedal width as on a regular bike.

The system can be controlled via a minimalistic handlebar remote paired to the integrated top tube display. The modes are easy to switch through, and, thanks to the ergonomic placement on the handlebar, can be easily controlled whilst riding, as well as when using Walk Mode.

To maintain a clean cockpit, the TQ system puts the focus on a minimalistic display located in the top tube paired to a discrete shifter on the handlebar. The LED display provides all the essential info, such as the battery level %, remaining KM range and even Watts, thanks to an integrated power meter. Want more? Link up your phone and dive deep using the TQ E-Bike app. Utilizing the built in ANT+, the system easily connects with a bike computer such as a Garmin, Hammerhead or Wahoo unit.

The TQ app offers real benefit and is easy to use. It’s easy to connect, customize and control your TQ-powered e-bike with the TQ E-Bike app. The bike comes with a suggested SCOTT motor tune, with the app you can further tune your drive unit to either save battery life or maximise the power output. You can also customize the display, altering the order and number of screens available, turn on and off control sounds etc.

The Lumen uses the same suspension layout as featured in the SCOTT Spark, now a double World Championship winning bike. Our integrated suspension technology also helps us to engineer frames with a lower shock placement which lowers centre of gravity Why integrated you ask? Well for one, we think it looks fantastic. But also keeps the shock fully protected from any foreign elements. Rainy wintry ride? No problem, your shock will continue to perform at its best regardless.

Accessing the shock via the bottom bracket area is facilitated through a hatch. This makes it easy to adjust rebound, compression, shock pressure, and for installing or replacing the cable for our TwinLoc Suspension System.

The Lumen features our Twinloc Suspension System. With the remote, the user has the ability to choose from three ride modes; descend, traction control and lockout, effectively changing the bikes geometry, suspension damping and spring curve simultaneously. Our lever also features the dropper post actuation below the bar. This ergonomic solution puts all of the bike’s controls in one place making them easily accessible on the fly.
