Ride1UP Announces New Off-Road Focussed Revv1 DRT

Motor and battery

To provide the Revv 1 DRT the form of muscle it might want to carry out offroad, Ride1UP selected the Bafang G0F4.1000 brushless, geared hub motor. This can be a 52V, 1000W motor that produces a robust 95Nm of torque.

Powering the 1000W motor is a 20Ah, 52V lithium-ion battery with Samsung cells that can present 1040Wh of capability. The battery consists of Samsung cells and is licensed to UL 2271.

The Ride1UP Revv 1 DRT ships as a Class 2 e-bike with a most pedal-assist and throttle pace of 20 mph. It may be unlocked for Class 3 speeds (as much as 28 mph max) or set to “off-road mode” which eliminates the pace restriction. In off-road mode, the Ride1UP Revv 1 DRT will probably be authorized to journey solely at Off-Freeway Automobile (OHV) areas.

Ride1UP estimates riders will see a variety of between 30 and 60 mi. with the prevailing variations of the Revv 1. To get towards the higher vary, a rider must be keen to pedal and confine their pace to beneath 20 mph, which may appear to be the alternative of what you’re going for with an e-bike like this. Riders planning to go offroad can count on to see extra modest vary numbers as knobby tires see larger rolling resistance.


Particulars within the preliminary press launch are a little bit skinny, however the elements decide seems to be to be practically similar to the spec of the Ride1UP Revv 1. Primarily based on what we see, we imagine that the Ride1UP Revv 1 DRT shares the identical 720mm-wide, 120mm-rise handlebar. It additionally seems to share the identical 45mm, 6-degree-rise stem.

With the prevailing Revv 1, which is geared towards highway driving, thanks partly on account of low-profile-tread tires, the alloy fenders are mounted near the tires, one thing that may pose an issue with muddy driving. With the Revv 1 DRT, the alloy fenders are mounted away from the knobby tires to ensure they will’t pack up with mud.

Drivetrain, brakes and wheels

Like most e-mopeds we’ve seen, the Ride1UP Revv 1 DRT comes with a single-speed drivetrain. The explanation for that is that Ride1UP figures that the majority riders will throttle their manner round, pedaling solely when it’s actually obligatory. Whereas the bench seat isn’t as large as some we’ve seen, it’s large sufficient to make pedaling a bit awkward. The considering goes that in the event you’re not pedaling a lot, there’s no want for a multi-gear drivetrain as a result of the rider isn’t going to have any bother making it uphill, or reaching high pace.

Judging from images, the Ride1UP Revv 1 DRT appears to be spec’d with the identical 4-piston LBN brakes paired with 203mm rotors for efficient stopping, even when at pace. The brake levers embody computerized cutoff switches, that are essential to maintain the brakes from combating the motor, must you start braking earlier than releasing the throttle.

Rounding out the moto-style journey are the 20 x 4-in. Innova tires. They function massive blocks that can provide nice traction in comfortable circumstances, whether or not muddy or dry.
