JD – TranzX: Focus on Central Motor Systems
At Taipei Cycle the TranzX systems will be on display at booth J-408. JD Group, developer of the TranzX drive systems, is focusing on the trend for ModelYear 2014 which is toward central motors.
To satisfy the needs of a wide variety of cyclists, TranzX M07 range offers two central motor types, mounted to the bottom bracket to provide a lower center of gravity and increased vehicle stability. The drive system of the high-performance TranzX M07HC central motor is characterized by high power and torque.
The M07HC brings a comfortable riding experience perfect for City and Trekking bikes. Both wheels can be engaged in a variety of combinations, such as gear hubs with hub dynamos and a coaster brake. By integrating the motor into the bottom bracket and connecting it directly to the chain rings, e-bike acceleration and performance are increased. With the M07 central motor range, TranzX is the only provider of e-bike drives to offer all three system solutions, front-, rear- and central motor.
In advance of this year’s Taipei Cycle Show, the M07HC central motor has been honored with a Taipei Cycle d&I Award for its high level of innovation. Another d&I award is there for the new Automatic Shifting Technology for conventional bicycles, AGT Bike+. With the new AGT Bike+, TranzX extends its popular, Eurobike Gold award-winning AGT E-Bike technology to conventional bicycles. AGT Bike+ is a handlebar mounted, computerized unit that determines when the rider needs to shift – and brings the bike automatically into proper gear.
The system utilizes a combination of intuitive sensors to monitor the road speed of the bike and calculate the optimum shifting instant, keeping the rider’s pedaling cadence steady. The easy to operate, 7-speed, internal gear system lets riders choose between a fully automatic and semi-automatic cycling mode.
