The 2018 HPC Typhoon is part electric bike, part dirt bike, and an AWESOME combination of both! With the insane amount of torque available from the powerful mid driven hub motor, the Typhoon can conquer all types of trails and exceedingly steep terrain! With 210 Nm of torque measured at the rear tire (mid-level Typhoon 4.0) you can be sure the Typhoon will get you to the top of the hill without any drama, and best of all- you can ride any time of the day since the Typhoon is nearly silent! No more waking up the neighbors for your late night adrenaline rush.
The Typhoon 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5,0 and 6.0 are based out their respective electrical output in kW. The 2.0 outputs slightly more than 2,000W, and the 3.0 outputs 3,000W and so on. Our fastest and most powerful Typhoon 6.0 (over 8 electric hp) is an absolute rocket and provides tremendous acceleration. The HPC Typhoon is the most robust and heavy duty offroad electric mountain bike we currently produce. All Typhoons climb hills very well, but as you move up in power levels, you get better hill climbing and more range capability.
The Typhoon features a very high quality RockShox Boxxer RC dual crown 200mm travel forks, a Rockshox Vivid R2C rear shock with over 8" of frame travel, a cane creek 40 series headset, Truvativ holzfeller direct mount stem, and the phenomenal Magura MT5 brakes, all standard! The HPC Typhoon is ready to rock and roll right off the showroom floor! Conquering steep terrain has never been this fun!

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.
