Rider Synergy (RS) Concept
A new riding experience that enhances the joy of traditional trail riding with smooth support that feels as natural and alive as your own body. RS is a new philosophy – a completely integrated system that becomes a reality when Power, Range, Interface and Weight are considered together.
The idea of creating our own power plant for Rise was daunting, but we believed that this would be the only way to realize our goal of a complete RS system for trail bikes. We had been looking for the best way to achieve this for a long time, so when Shimano shared the plans for their new EP8 motor, we quickly realized that this awesome drive unit offered us the perfect platform on which to build the RS Power concept. Our dream of a “rider first”, highly responsive and super-efficient system had become a reality. Working jointly with Shimano, Orbea developed our proprietary electronics and batteries while Shimano configured their EP8 motor to work perfectly running our specific RS firmware.
Rise is intended for big rides. 8 hours and over 4,000m of climbing in Eco mode. It features a modular battery solution that provides up to 612wh, combining a very light and compact 360wh main battery integrated in the down tube with a patent-pending 252Wh range extender. The RS concept provides a great day on the trails because the lighter bike, lower power consumption and of course, the pedal-friendly weight and assistance extends battery life by a factor of over 1.5x. This means the 360Wh RS Battery of Rise delivers ride times and ranges similar to a 540Wh battery in a typical eBike.
