The Uproc X wins the 2022 Design & Innovation Award
“With the Uproc X, FLYER has found a new formula for the modern climbing machine: Thanks to its sophisticated geometry, the Uproc X positions riders perfectly on a mountain e-bike for steep inclines. The powerful Panasonic GX Ultimate motor delivers abundant power to transport the FLYER relentlessly up any mountain, while still being able to develop its 95 Nm torque tactfully in the smart automatic mode. FLYER combines the innovative motor system with the FIT 2.0 control system, which shines with high connectivity and digital features,” was the jury’s verdict.
What’s more, the Uproc X impressed the experts with its innovative carbon frame, whose sophisticated fastener ensures that the large 750 Wh battery sits firmly and is still easy to remove. The jury sees further advantages in the integrated Monkey Link interfaces for the easy installation of headlights and the successful integration of the Panasonic motor. The model that was tested was the FLYER Uproc X 9.50.
“We are delighted about the award for the Uproc X. We developed a new carbon frame and balanced the geometry down to the finest detail for this powerful bike. It was important to us that the bike is fun on every trail. The Design & Innovation Award jury has now impressively confirmed that our project team has come up with a perfect trail bike,” says FLYER Product Manager Philipp Suter.
With the Uproc X, FLYER has found a new formula for the modern climbing machine:
The Uproc X, our all-mountain powerhouse. In addition to the innovative carbon frame, also offers a lot of torque and a powerful battery. The integration of FIT 2.0 also enables innovative functions in an intelligent overall system. The Uproc X offers you these and other technical highlights:
The four-link suspension design with 150 mm travel, carbon rocker link, large industrial bearings and specifically tuned rear shocks ensure control, safety and, at the same time, ample freedom of movement in the terrain for this performance e-MTB. Thanks to the Panasonic GX Ultimate Pro Fit drive with 95 Nm torque and a peak performance of 600 watts, the Uproc X has plenty of thrust for the steepest inclines. The 750 Wh battery offers plenty of energy for long tours.
The battery is fastened in place with a bolt to guarantee a vibration-free fit of the fully integrated battery and this also makes it possible to replace it in a few simple steps. The top models boast a fully integrated stem/handlebar unit. All of the models have a MonkeyLink interface, to which a headlight can be connected in next to no time. The mixed wheel concept with a 29-inch front wheel and a 27.5-inch rear wheel enables outstanding roll-over resistance, great grip and maximum agility.
FIT 2.0 system integration enables intuitive operation and smart functions such as the individual adjustment of riding modes or GPS navigation. Another new feature is the boost function. This allows the motor to be briefly switched to turbo mode at any assistance level, which is helpful when conquering steep inclines, for example. The easy-to-replace display can be upgraded at any time to a larger display.
