Eurobike is the premier annual show which showcases the new products for the upcoming year as well as showcasing new technologies and developments which are about to be employed in the market in the near future. In short, the annual show organized in Friedrichschafen Germany shows who’s who by calling every major player to show their hand for the upcoming year.
Making an Impact
Eurobike was a big midterm goal for us. First, we wanted to present all the hard work and development that has gone into the Revonte ONE Drive System since our last appearance in the show in 2019. Back then, we did not have a rideable prototype with us – something that was going to change for 2021.
The testing and development have been ongoing and even fierce. At any given time we’ve had rideable prototypes around the office, but we wanted to make sure that the version that was coming with us to Eurobike would be pristine in its performance. The current supply chain issues and material shortages have not played any favours on this front, but we made it happen.
It goes without saying that there was no shortage in demand when it came to test ride slots. There were almost no idle moments when the bike was on the move, whether ridden by our future potential customers or media personnel.
We partnered with our longtime collaborators EAV and Lavelle bikes to have a strong presence in the show. Our booth stood out with its central location, ample footprint, and timeless black and white color theme. The bikes from EAV and Lavelle were the icing on the cake, displaying the versatility of the Revonte ONE Drive System.
The futuristic and highly refined model from Lavelle Bikes was an eye-catcher to say the least. The shapes and highly engineered carbon lay-ups of the frame are a work of art by themselves as is the asymmetrical design which is enabled by the Revonte ONE Drive System.
The EAV 2Cubed cargo e-bike had just as strong of a stand in the show. Leo from EAV had no dull moment during the entire four days of the show in describing the features of the vehicle and the design philosophy behind it.
Eurobike produced more than anticipated interest towards the Revonte ONE Drive System. When it comes to e-bike drive systems, combining the motor and the transmission all in one enclosed unit is the way of the future, and has been our solution from the start.
Currently, we are finalizing the mechanical design, testing, and stress-proofing the production methods and moving into the production phase in 2022. The start will be done on a smaller scale to ensure the highest level of quality control. Once the production processes have been verified and thoroughly tested, we’ll be moving into mass production in the 2nd stage.
Bikes equipped with the Revonte ONE Drive System will be available in 2022. If you want to be among the first lucky ones enjoying the automatic & stepless operation of our drive system, stay tuned for future updates on specific bike models.

When it comes to e-bikes – and especially e-mtb’s – the EMBN.com site and YouTube channel are the platforms to watch! We had the honor to have a visit by the legendary rider and reporter Steve Jones the first thing when the show started. To get Mr. Jones’ take on our drive system and the future of e-mtb’s watch the video below!
In case your German language skills are a bit out of touch, a translated version provided by Google can be read here. A summary of the test ride is found below.
“The full assistance mode topped it off so that there was an abundance of power available! You notice this when you accelerate quickly, which happens still really quietly. Only the gear changes were a bit rougher, but this will be brought to an optimal level in the course of the development of Revonte.
Overall, the system has already made a good impression on us and we can expect a unique drive system for the series variant, which does not have any susceptible derailleur gears.”
This Instagram channel is for the connoisseurs of the bike industry. The feed focuses almost exclusively on products that are manufactured inside the EU – criteria we are proud to fulfill! The post describes nicely the frames of Lavelle Bikes which are made in Spain and of course the Revonte ONE Drive System which is engineered in Finland.
