E-bikes have grown in number massively over the past few years. However, technology has not evolved quite as rapidly as most would have wished. This is especially true when it comes to drivetrains. In addition to offering industry-leading ride experience, the Revonte ONE Drive System is the most low-maintenance option around!

Simplifying the Drivetrain
The traditional drivetrain architecture has served bicycles well – until now that is. With the advent of e-bikes, we’ve mode from the area of low loads to the territory of high loads. The combined power output of the rider and drive unit does pose a new set of challenges to the whole bike, especially the drivetrain components.
The cluttered combination of a dozen or so sprockets and the derailleur hanging on the side of the bike can only cope with so much. We are here to offer a better solution that’s time-tested.
Enter the single-speed drivetrain. Until now, running a drivetrain of that sort has meant foregoing gears – a compromise that’s a tall order, to say the least. The Revonte ONE Drive System offers the best of both worlds; a robust power line from the front sprocket to the rear wheel with a wide gear ratio. On top of this, the gears inside the drive unit operate automatically and in a stepless fashion – something that’s unseen in the world of e-bikes until now.
Less Moving Parts
The basic principles of engineering and practical lessons are in full effect when it comes to bicycle components. A practical, and most basic takeaway is that fewer moving parts come with decreased maintenance needs. When moving from a combination of a dozen or so chainrings onto a single pair, we are talking about a change that’s more than just a small step in development. A game changer – a term that’s often overused – is well warranted here.
A single-speed chain and a pair of sprockets are not immune to wear, but they can withstand more mileage and ride even in the most challenging conditions than a narrow chain and a cluster of sprockets ever can.
If ease of use, minimal maintenance needs, and an oil-free drivetrain is preferred, then we recommend taking a look into the carbon belt drive by the Gates corporation. Our in-house testing has given some very promising results when it comes to the longevity and wear-resistance of this drivetrain solution.
The benefits do not end here. In addition to the simple and robust drivetrain structure, all the critical components related to gearing are protected inside the stealth housing of the Revone ONE Drive Unit. Dust, rain, mud and splashes do not reach inside the housing and subject the transmission components to contamination.
This feature alone has been a massive downside for traditional bicycle gearing systems. With the Revonte ONE, it’s just one of the numerous benefits.
More Riding, Less Wrenching
Basic regular maintenance measures geared towards the drivetrain components go a long way. Or to be more accurate, are all that’s needed to keep a Revonte ONE equipped e-bike running.
Who wouldn’t like a more carefree e-bike that requires less maintenance than the current “old-fashioned” models? Because of the ingenious design of the Revonte ONE Drive System, one can ride more with less downtime thanks to the lessened service needs. And when the time eventually comes to replace components that are subjected to wear, like chains and sprockets, the task is easier and orders of magnitude more affordable.
Ride more, wrench less and have fun.
