We are proud to introduce the 2019 HPC Scout! This is our first USA designed, engineered and hand welded hardtail frame. It is a very robust, 150mm travel hardtail meant to take abuse. For the first time, we are offering for customers a high power torque sensing mid drive coupled with a throttle! No more pedal assist only low power ebikes! The Scout offers up to 2000W of raw torque sensing power!
For the quality of the components that you get with this bike, it is a great value. If you live for the mountains and yearn to explore untamed wilderness, this bike is for you. Featuring robust mid drive 750W, 1500W or 2000W output, this bike is engineered to take you places a normal hub motor bike can only dream of. Steep climbs have never been so fun. The torque sensor is very smooth and accurate and will feel like you have super human strength. The harder you pedal, the more power the system automatically gives you, so if you use the pedal assist function it feels like you are riding a normal bike, but your legs just feel incredibly powerful. You can vary the pedal assist power levels at a touch of a button! If pedaling is not for you, great! Just push the throttle to get as much or as little power as you want. You can disable the pedal assist system completely.
This do it all e-bike is equally suited for hunters who want to venture way back into the wilderness and get as much range as possible or for college students looking for a silent, powerful daily commuter that will climb any hill he or she may encounter along the way. Since you can shift through the different speeds of the bike with your motor, your top speed can vary from 11 mph with huge torque for hill climbing to 40 mph (2000W version) on the straightaways- all with one motor!
The Scout is a great looking MTB that performs as well as it looks. Its provided Rockshox Recon RL 140mm travel AIR suspension fork is tough, high quality, and offers long travel to soak up the bumps! A full SRAM GX 11 speed shifter and rear derailleur system ensures shifts are quick and efficient. 180mm Hydraulic Magura MT4e brakes deliver supreme stopping power.
The Scout is proudly hand built from scratch in the USA.
Technology and Features:
140mm Travel Air Suspension w/ Tapered Head Tube
Featuring magnesium lowers and an updated dampening system for 2019, the Recon RL offers 150mm of plus suspension travel. The air suspension system allows for fine tune adjusting by each individual for the perfect ride and suspension performance! The reinforced tapered head tube is specifically designed for the increased stress loads of our high performance motor systems and keep the frame as fork as stiff as possible.
Boost Spacing (15x110mm Front and 12x148mm Rear)
With the hub flanges wider, the spoke bracing angle is now increased and wheel stiffness is improved. Additionally, by making the bike’s chain stays wider, we were able to make them shorter while still maintaining tire clearance. Shorter chain stays mean optimum weight distribution and more agile handling than a similar bike. Sticking with the newest bike standards will allow much more options for upgraded hubs in the future.
27.5" Plus Size Tires (27.5x3.0)
A tire for a new generation of ebikes. The Havok's Plus sized combination of larger air volume, increased contact patch, and the versatile tread pattern make it the perfect tire for a high performance electric bike application. The increased traction and stability will inspire you to take on even the gnarliest terrain!
Powerful Mid Drive Motor + Torque Sensor + Throttle
The Ultra Drive System puts the rider in complete control. In spite of a generous power output and a maximum torque of more than 160 N.m, the motor operates in virtual silence. The modular motor design and integrated controller make disassembly easier and improve service responsiveness.
USA Made Lithium Battery System
Our battery systems use only the finest authentic cells that are triple checked for consistency and performance. Our in house assembly process allows us to be in total control of the quality and make the most reliable and highest performing battery systems possible. All battery packs feature intelligent Battery Management systems and smart chargers to keep the battery performing at its optimal level, charge after charge.
Intelligent Color Display
Our full color display is seamlessly integrated with the bike and offers the rider a plethora of information. Not only do you have a very accurate battery voltage meter with battery bar, it shows you current power draw, speed, power mode, pedal assist level and distance traveled in a highly attractive display. With the integrated USB port, your power hungry devices will always stay charged! The integrated pod mounted on the handlebar easily navigates all the menus and pedal assist levels without taking your hand off the grip
Refined Frame Geometry
Through several iterations and hundreds of hours of testing, our team of engineers designed a bike that will perform as well as it looks! We keep ourselves aligned with cutting edge industry standards for suspesnion design and bike geometry to make sure our frames will be comfortable and perform as well as they look.
Hydraulic Braking System w/ Cutoff
Custom Magura hydraulic brakes offer great feel and effortless stopping power! The custom integrated brake lever cutoff will cut all motor power as soon as the brake is applied. Oversized Magura 180mm (or optional 203mm) rotors provide immense stopping power in all conditions.
SRAM GX 11 Speed Transmission w/ Derailleur Clutch
Leveraging the legendary history of SRAM shifting, the GX 11 speed rear derailleur provides incredible shifting speed and precision. X-ACTUATION™ technology eliminates slop and shifting variation. ROLLER BEARING CLUTCH™ technology delivers maximum drivetrain stability—even through the most punishing terrain. And with CAGE LOCK™ technology, wheel removal and installation are easier than ever.
Current Expected Build Time: 3-4 weeks
