Unmatched Performance, Unrivaled Quality
The Scout is our premier hardtail E-bike Hi-Power Cycles. What you see here is a product that has been over 2 years and 4 prototypes in the making. Our goal with the Scout was to build the best bang for your buck ebike and pack as many features and technology in it as we could. We ended up with an unbelievable hardtail packing a powerful motor system, plus size 27.5" tires with boost frame technology, 150mm of suspension travel and the best overall ride experience we could imagine.
The Scout is hand welded and 100% built here in the United States. The frame itself is mitered, jigged, CNC'd, welded, heat treated, spray quenched, straightened, media blasted and powdercoated right here in California. It is designed to be best performing electric 27.5+ hardtail on the market and we are happy to say we hit our target goal! The Scout is built from 6061-T6 aluminum and custom hydro-formed tubing that are then welded one at a time by a highly esteemed industry professional with over 30 years of TIG welding experience. The amount of R&D, lab and field testing, and suspension tuning puts the Scout heads and shoulders above its competition in terms of overall quality, electric system performance, and ride quality.

The result is a seamless blend of power, performance and precision that pairs perfectly to the rider in any situation!
Powerful Integrated Mid Drive Motor
The Ultra Drive System puts the rider in complete control. In spite of a generous power output (750W/1500W/2000W) and a maximum torque of more than 160 N.m, the motor operates in virtual silence. Want more power? Simply pedal harder or put the assist level up! If pedaling is not for you, just press the thumb throttle and kick your feet back while the motor does all the work for you! This motor system comes in three different power packages: 750W, 1500W, and 2000W.
Using the extra wide 381% gear spread on the Scout, this motor system is capable of blistering speed (36+ mph with the 2000W motor) and incredible hill climbing power in a light weight, reliable and silent package. The integrated sine wave control system is smooth, dependable, and offers excellent power response!
Advanced Torque Sensor + Cadence Sensor
Featuring the newest in e-bike technology, the intelligent sine wave control system is able to process rider input and immediately increase or decrease assistance based on the data it receives. By constantly processing data from rider input at over a thousand times per second, the bike will know exactly how much assistance to give at any given moment.
Want more power? Simply pedal harder (or use the throttle)! Want to slow done? Pedal lightly. Want the motor to stop? Stop pedaling or tap your brake lever. The controller processes not only torque values but cadence values (how fast you are pedaling) as well to give the smoothest riding experience possible! Put the assist to Turbo mode and you will feel like you have superhuman strength!
Made in USA Battery System
Any electric bike is only as good as its battery. What cells that are used (making sure they are authentic and not counterfeit like many imported packs), the assembly process, the materials used in the battery production, what connectors are used, and what battery management system is used is imperative to getting the proper performance and safety from your e-bike.
Our battery systems use only the finest authentic cells that are triple checked for consistency and performance before they are assembled. Our in house assembly process allows us to be in total control of the quality and make the most reliable and highest performing battery systems possible. All battery packs feature intelligent battery management systems and smart chargers to keep the battery performing at its optimal level, charge after charge. With up to 80 miles of range (160+ miles in eco mode), the only thing you need to worry about is where will go next!
Intelligent Color Display
Our full color display is seamlessly integrated with the bike and offers the rider a plethora of information. Not only do you have a very accurate battery voltage meter with battery bar, it shows you current power draw, speed, power mode, pedal assist level and distance traveled in a highly attractive display. With the integrated USB port, your power hungry devices will always stay charged! The integrated pod mounted on the handlebar easily navigates all the menus and pedal assist levels without taking your hand off the grip. There is even a "walk" function to help you up hills you don't want to ride up!
Refined Frame Geometry
Through several iterations and hundreds of hours of testing, our team of engineers designed a bike that will perform as well as it looks! We keep ourselves aligned with cutting edge industry standards for suspension design, bike geometry, and component standards to make sure our frames will be comfortable and perform to our exacting specifications. The frame is the most important aspect of your bikes handling and feel so this is not an aspect to overlook since even the smallest degree change can have a huge impact!
150mm Travel Air Suspension
(Tapered Head Tube)
Featuring magnesium lowers and an updated dampening system for 2019, the Recon RL offers 150mm of plus suspension travel. The air suspension system allows for fine tune adjusting by each individual for the perfect ride and suspension performance! The reinforced tapered head tube is specifically designed for the increased stress loads of our high performance motor systems and keep the frame as fork as stiff as possible.
Boost Spacing Frame/Hubs
15x110mm Front Hub/12x148mm Rear Hub. With the hub flanges wider, the spoke bracing angle is now increased and wheel stiffness is improved. Additionally, by making the bike’s chain stays wider, we were able to make them shorter while still maintaining tire clearance. Shorter chain stays mean optimum weight distribution and more agile handling than a similar bike. Wider hub contact patches allow for more precise handling and control.
Magura MT4e Hydraulic Brakes
How to slow down from warp speed? The Magura MT4e with oversized 180mm rotors is the answer. Relying on experience from motorcycles, Magura makes class leading hydraulic brakes. The MT4's are light, reliable, and feel fantastic! The integrated cutoff will cut motor power as soon as it is activated.

X-ACTUATION™ technology eliminates slop and shifting variation. ROLLER BEARING CLUTCH™ technology delivers maximum drivetrain stability—even through the most punishing terrain. The extra large 11-50T 11s rear cassette offers a huge 454% gear range to enable the motor to thrive in any situation!
A fast e-bike requires the most robust wheelset for performance and safety. The Scout features custom Alex MD40 rims matched with high quality custom sourced E-Bike hubs. All of our wheel builds start by cutting each individual Phil Wood spoke in house and then hand lacing them to the hubs. By using the highest quality spokes, nipples, hubs, and rims, we ensure the best wheel you can get!
Frame Size: Choosing the right frame size is an important aspect of bike riding. These frame recommendations are general guidelines. Note: Frame sizing is not as important for e-bikes compared to standard pedal bikes so get a frame you feel comfortable with!
Medium Frame: For riders ~5'4"-5'8", inseam ~28"
Large Frame: For riders ~5'8"-6'1", inseam ~31"
Extra Large (21")
Extra Large Frame: For riders ~6'2"+, inseam ~33"
