2017 HPC Revolution
The HPC Revolution is our premier product here at Hi-Power Cycles. What you see here is a product that has been over two years and five prototypes in the making. No costs were spared in making the ultimate Freeride/DH electric bike on the market. The Revolution is hand welded and 100% built here in the United States. It is designed to be the fastest, most nimble, lightest weight and most powerful downhill electric bike available anywhere. It all started with a handbuilt 6061-T6 Aluminum frame that is hand welded one at a time by a highly esteemed Aerospace welder here in Los Angeles, CA.
Our group of engineers for this project are experts in bicycle and moto geometry, as well as suspension performance. This amount of R&D, lab and field testing, and suspension tuning puts the Revolution head and shoulders above its competition. There is not one off the shelf part for this frame, all parts- including bottom bracket, headtube, swingarm, shock mounts, seat tube, etc. are made from CNC Aluminum in low quantity. At only 12.8 lbs, the Revolution frame is the lightest of its type in the industry! We are beyond proud to build this bike from scratch here in the USA.
The Revolution 5.0 comes standard with top shelf components such as a 203mm travel Rockshox Boxxer RC dual crown fork, Vivid R2C Coil shock providing over 9" of frame travel, and the highly regarded Schlumpf High Speed Drive that allows for a 85T equivalent front chainring with the click of your heel.
We urge you to swing a leg over the Revolution and test ride one at your local HPC Dealer. You will then understand our labor of love, and why the Revolution is such a spectacular machine. The ride and handling are truly second to none!
