The Dyname 4.0 Drive System. The most powerful available



With a bespoke motor Rocky Mountain are able to design their e-mountain bikes to reflect the ride quality of their highly evolved non-motorized bikes. The Dyname 4.0 drive system is a completely redesigned system for 2022 . It offers the same amazing power and ride experience, is almost silent, comes with a bigger battery, easier servicing and maintenance and greater customisation options for fine tuning your power settings. 

With 108NM torque it is one of the most powerful climbing motors on offer. It's not just a headline number though.

The motor offers instant acceleration and responsiveness thanks to its inline torque sensor and it climbs like a mountain goat. With the new inframe 'Jumbotron' display (named with a nod to RM's Canadian links) you can fine tune your power settings for how you prefer to ride. 

The new system comes with a large slimline 720Wh battery and can be easily removed. A piggy-back second battery with an extra 314Wh is also available if you need more range.
