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.
Power is only as useful as the manner in which it is applied. The EP8 RS power band feels alive, smooth and responsive, echoing your input and cadence. Our custom electronics are tuned so that the peak power delivery come at rider cadences of 75-95 rpm – no coincidence, as this range happens to be where experienced riders produce the most power and efficiency. This way we optimise human and bike interaction and enhance natural riding.
The harder you pedal, the more assistance Rise provides, and full power comes when you’re also doing your best. It’s instantaneous and extremely sensitive to your output, producing an amazingly natural feeling that encourages you to pedal. And being one of the quietest motors on the market provides a totally unique feel.
As we are all different riders and we have different needs, Rise comes with two preset RS Power profiles. Both profiles can be fine-tuned in seconds to your personal liking, using the Shimano E-tube mobile app. Profile 1 delivers a more subtle support feel, maximizing range and natural riding experience. Profile 2 is tuned for slightly more assistance within the RS Power parameters.
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.
The 2.2kg main battery might be one of the lightest and slimmest examples out there – housed in a strong and reliable alloy case, this energy bank is based on the newest 21700 cell that provides a higher rate of charge/discharge and ultimately much better battery life and heat management.
Our RS Range Extender gives you an additional 252Wh (70%) of exploration. Adding the RS Range Extender gives ride times comparable to a 900Wh battery on a regular ebike. The range extender cage is also compatible with standard water bottles, so you can optimize the battery/hydration configuration of every ride.
There is a limited lifetime warranty on the frame, as well as 3 months of free service at Kelowna E Ride, the Okanagan’s original and best electric bike shop!
