Giant has introduced the slogan ‘Hybrid Cycling Technology’ to support the introduction of their intelligent power system. According to Giant this is not an e-Bike, but rather an ‘enhanced cycling experience allowing people to ride faster and with greater ease, as it seamlessly blends human pedalling power with battery-fuelled electric power’.

But what’s new on this product? Giant claims it hosts several technological features that work in unison with your own human power, setting Hybrid Cycling Technology apart from old-fashioned e-Bikes. For example, the RideControl command centre provides three modes (Sport, Normal or Economy) and the PedalPlus sensor, in combination with the I² driver unit or controller.

The I² driver unit gives the biker the feeling of a smooth ride no matter how rough the pedal stroke is. Giant claims the new EnergyPak Lithium Ion batteries are one-third the weight of traditional batteries, offering a reach of no less than 110 kilometres! The EnergyPak comes with a SmartCharger that automatically determines how long the EnergyPak has to be charged. A full charge takes about four hours, half the time of traditional batteries.

Finally the Syncdrive features a clutch mechanism for when the bicycle is not being powered by the EnergyPak, to eliminate drag if the bike is ridden without power assist.
