Rocky Mountain unveils Blizzard Powerplay eMTBs

Riding bikes in the winter can be very harmful and scary as it has less traction in cold conditions, and there may be ice on the road.

Canada-based Rocky Mountain Bikes has unveiled its two new winter riding electric bicycles, Blizzard Powerplay A50 Sram and A30 Microshift. They are fat-tire mountain bikes that allow winter riding in a new way.

The e-bikes are nearly similar to each other; both the bikes are packed with an alloy frame and a carbon fork. Also, the bike has an integrated display and internal cable routing. Moreover, there are 15 mounting points around the cycle for attaching the optional accessories needed for snow-spraying adventures.

The Rocky Mountain’s electric mountain bike features a new Dyname 4.0 mid-drive motor with a peak power of 700W and torque of 108Nm. The electric bikes are powered by the 720-Wh removable Li-ion battery as standard.

Both bikes have 27.5-inch Wilderness Trail Bikes (WTB) tubeless-ready rims and 4.5-inch wide VeeTire Snow Avalanche fat tires.

The only difference between both the bikes is that the A50’s stopping power is provided by four-piston Sram G2 hydraulic brakes, and the A50 sports a 10-speed Sram gear set. On the other hand, the A30 gets dual-piston Sram Level varieties, and the A30 rides with a MicroShift setup.

Both bikes’ pricing, speed, range, and other details have yet to be revealed. However, the company said they will update the specifications and prices of the bike very soon. The bikes will be available soon on their website.
