Rocky Mountain Bikes launch its first eBike with ebikemotion technology, “Welcome to altitude Powerplay”


The Canadian Brand goes directly in the e-MTB business with the new Altitude Powerplay. One pure electric mountain bike that the Canadian band has designed in a complete different way to the rest of the market because it includes their own motor, the PowerPlay™

Introducing a fully integrated, electric-assist mountain bike that takes our Altitude’s legendary handling and ride quality and adds a compact, powerful drive system. The new Powerplay™ drive system was designed in parallel with the frame, delivering ultra-short chainstays, optimised suspension kinematics, super-low centre of gravity, and class-leading torque. The result is an e-MTB that actually rides like a proper mountain bike—perfect for everything from self-shuttling all mountain trails, finding flow between the descents, and squeezing in power lunch rides.


The new e-MTB was presente at the end of May in France and it is the result of the brand in order to introduce anything totally different.

eBikemotion Technologies, was the provider selected to add the technic layer to the new e-MTB. The requirements of the system were:

–         Introduce a USB charging point for Smartphone of Light.

–         As simple remote that could be able to offer battery information, assist level, errors and notifications.

–         Bluetooth® BLE connection.

–         User and Dealer Smartphone APP

–         Web area full connected to other platforms like STRAVA™, Facebook® , etc.

In order to support these requirements, the best product available were the iWoc® remote, based in LED information and Bluetooth®. The biggest problem in the project was focused in the RS485 technology used by Rocky team for the communication with the high power motor controller included in the motor and developed by a third company. The current 5 buttons iWoc® was only compatible with CAN BUS, anyway ebikemotion developed and specific electronic for Rocky based in 485 because the project was totally different to the rest of the market and got our attention.

After 16 month of hard work, the new Altitude Powerplay™ has arrived to the market. For sure is the most exclusive downhill e-mtb of the market, but taking in mind that includes also a high level technology that other eBikes doesn’t includes, even using a remote that was born for urban.

The iWoc® remote with 5 buttons is IP67 (other ones are IP54), so it can offer and extra resistance to the worst using condition, like humit or rain. Also it is possible to keep the smartphone safety in the poket during downhill and installed in the handlebar during uphill for guiding and navigation, even offroad.

STRAVA™ if full synchronized with the APP and also support off-line navigation and off-line maps, so it is no necessary to have internet connection for APP operation.

Ebikemotion APP has included also the off-road navigation and guiding, something exclusive in this kind of eBikes, and the possibility to control the APP directly from the remote (ZOOM, active screen, etc.)

Dealer also have available a new exclusive APP for diagnosis and installation of components in the eBike controlled by Bluetooth®.

Congratulations to all members of the Rocky Mountain Bikes team for the exceptional work done in this eBike and also for giving to us the possibility to participate in this amanzing project. Our best wishes for this new baby. Great product!!!
