Swiss e-bike manufacturer Flyer has launched a new model called the Goroc TR:X, designed for urban and urban commuting as well as a purpose-built full-squeeze trail bike and capable bike tourer.
The Goroc TR:X is built around a sporty carbon/aluminum frame with a Suntour suspension fork and an X-Fusion rear shock connected to a four-link setup to help smooth out any uneven terrain it encounters. It is reported to weigh about 30 kg (66 lb) with the battery and much less without the battery. The rear rack installed can tow up to 15 kg (33 lb) of gear, with a maximum load capacity of 150 kg (330 lb).
The e-bike rides on 29-inch wheels with Schwalbe Johnny Watts 2.35-inch tires and is powered by Tektro TRP C2.3 disc brakes with 203mm rotors. When busy city streets are left behind for challenging off-road adventures, the dropper post throws the Selle Royal saddle out of the way on steep descents and pops out again when needed.
Flyer chose to power the ride with a Pinion 600-W (peak) mid-drive motor with an integrated 12-speed electronic transmission. Smart.Shift is built in to automatically provide just the right amount of assistance at speeds up to 25 km/h (15.5 mph) – the rider has access to four pedal assist modes as well as walk assist.
The TR:X uses Gates Ribbon Drive CDX for low maintenance and a quieter ride, and the motor delivers 85 Nm (62.6 lb.ft) of torque. The 700 Wh battery is available now, and a range extender will reportedly follow next year.
100 Lux headlights and taillights aid in visibility in daytime traffic or after-dark shenanigans, riders can check e-bike status via a 2-inch color display, and full fenders and mounts are also included.
The versatility of the TR:X comes with a pretty hefty price tag, available in two frame colors starting at €8,699 (which converts to about $9,735).
