Where are e-bikes going? How about other transportation means? Or what does the internet of things mean in the context of light electric vehicles? In our blog, you can find our opinions about these matters.

  • The Story Behind Our Controller Design – Part 2 - In this 2nd installment of the story behind our Controller design blog series, we cover additional facts and considerations, features that weren’t introduced in the 1st part, and add some color to the happenings behind the design process. Future-proof Forecasting is very difficult, especially when it’s about the future. Some of the biggest breakthroughs and […]
  • Weight Matters – Not Only the Amount But Also Where It’s Located - E-bikes are inherently heavier than their oxygen-powered siblings. There’s no going around the fact that the drive unit and the battery which holds the energy stores for propulsion add weight to the bicycle. When it comes to ride-characteristics, total weight does matter, but how it is placed on the bike is at least as important.  […]
  • Revonte Q&A – you asked, we answered - We made an inquiry in our social media feeds, i.e. Facebook and Linkedin, about things you wanted to know about the Revonte ONE Drive System. The most popular questions with answers are listed below in a Q&A format. Enjoy! Q: Is the system capable of re-generation, e.g. recharging during riding?  The Revonte ONE Drive System […]
  • Software as a Service – a New Look into E-bikes - Until now e-bikes are seen only as hardware that provides a means for transportation. The addition of electricity and circuit boards to a 200-years old invention can open doors that haven’t been discovered before. E-bikes can be so much more when some “smarts” are added to them and we are on our way in doing […]
  • EAV and Revonte ONE Drive System – A New Type of Cargo E-bike - As you might have already heard we have collaborated with EAV – a new generation vehicle production company – with a goal in producing an innovative cargo e-bike by integrating the revolutionary Revonte ONE Drive System into a new type cargo bike platform. The powerhouse of choice for the upcoming and innovative EAV models will be the […]
  • Ride Experience Is More Than Performance Metrics - Evaluating e-bike drive systems is a lot more than comparing performance metrics, i.e. peak power or peak torque values. Numbers do matter but a lot remains hidden if the assessment is done purely based on them. To deliver an exceptional ride experience, the drive system needs to work in smooth harmony to determine how the […]
  • Cargo E-bikes Pave the Way For Electrical Transportation - E-bikes are here to stay and it is not something to be argued with. The relevant question is to what extent will e-bikes substitute their “acoustic siblings”. Commuter bikes and e-mtb’s are undergoing an electric revolution, but it does not end there. The main goal in developing our drive system was to make not only […]
  • The Story Behind Our Remote Design – Part 1 - Those of you who have visited our site previously might remember the remote control which had a lot of similarities to existing control units. We have moved on from the original design because things have changed on many fronts. First of all our thinking about the subject has changed and the whole industry has made […]
  • Changing Landscape of Urban Mobility - Urban mobility is reaching a critical turning point. The condensation of services and working opportunities into cities has caused a considerable increase in population density i.e. more people are living and getting by on their daily tasks in smaller areas. This poses considerable challenges to the infrastructure and how transportation is conducted.  Luckily, the answer […]
  • Revonte in Taichung - The Taichung Bike Week and Eurobike form the big duo of events as far as the bicycle industry is concerned.

  • Eyes on the Taichung Bike Week - There are two big annual events in the cycling industry that are relevant for the industry people: Eurobike and Taichung Bike Week. As you probably and hopefully know already, the launch of the Revonte ONE Drive System in Eurobike was a big success for us. As a reference, we were listed as one of the highlights […]
  • Eurobike 2019: Launch of the Revonte ONE Drive System - Eurobike took place in the first week of September in Friedrichshafen, Germany. It’s the event where the whole bike world gets together to show their latest products and visions. As usual with every major expo, plenty of gadgets and inventions with questionable utility can be found as well. To put it shortly, Eurobike was big […]
  • Revonte Drive System Offers the Highest Level of Configuration - The Revonte Drive System development has had two distinct phases: hardware and software. Most importantly, they form a unit that works harmoniously together in a way which is unprecedented in the e-bike market. First of all, the mechanical structure of our motor is simple and ingenious in its own right and when the broad scale […]
  • Automatic Transmission is the Future of E-bike Drivetrains - If you are visiting our site for the very first time, our drive system and the principles behind it aren’t most likely familiar to you. The Revonte Drive system is based on integrated automatic transmission – a technology which has been used in a wide range of industrial applications. In the car manufacturing world heavy […]
  • Optimizing the motor and the CVT - Hi there – nice to have you reading this! My name is Dr. Antti Lehikoinen (just Antti will do), and I’m working as a special advisor for Revonte. This post will take you through what our team has spent the last few weeks on – optimizing the Revonte drivetrain. It’ll cover the benefits and workings […]
