Introducing the 2017 HPC RECON. Inspired by Military design and based off of the legendary Montague Paratrooper frame, this folding 26" Electric Bike offers high performance with ZERO compromises. Featuring the same highly spec'd components as the HT-Series, the HPC Recon offers portability while offering the same high performance ride and feel as any of our standard bikes, yet has the capability to fold up and stow away in even the smallest trunk. The ultra rigid frame has been in Military use for over a decade and was originally conceived to be tough as nails transportation that could literally be thrown out of a plane by paratroopers. The HPC Recon has a load capacity of 500 lbs. and is one of the strongest bike frames currently available on the market.
New for 2017 is a brand new updated design frame bag that is now thicker with 1000 Denier Cordura Nylon. It also features lockable storage, and is waterproof with dual YKK zippers on each side. Also new is a 1/16" polycarbonate hard case shell built into each side of the bag to add puncture resistance to the battery system. This frame bag is meticulously hand sewn right here in the United States!
One of the most exciting feautres for the 2017 model year is the addition of the incredible Schlumpf High Speed Drive! This amazing plantary geared crankset allows you to mulitply your sprocket size by 2.5x! This means you can have a medium 34T sprocket, click a button and immediately have the pedal power of an 85T crank. This means you can actually pedal the bike and help the motor along at speeds up to 50 MPH (4000W system). It is truly an astonishing feeling! The Schlumpf High Speed Drive is standard on the HPC HT ELITE and optional for the HT-1 and HT-2.
We encourage you to ride as many of our competitors bikes as possible before you test ride our bikes. Not only will our bikes out power and out handle the competition, with the HPC RECON, it can do all of this while being ultra portable as well. It is truly the best of both world's in one intelligent package. It very well could be the last bike you will ever need!
