The electronics wizards at DJI—best known for their drones—have launched a new e-bike brand, Amflow. The Amflow PL is an eMTB with a proprietary new motor, the Avinox.

Not to overstate things, but in a world full of disruptions, this new motor is going to disrupt the eMTB market.

The Avinox drive unit looks like a typical 250W mid-drive motor. It’s not, though. This mid-drive may produce 250W nominally, but its peak power output is 850W with a massive 105Nm of torque. That is, that’s the peak output until you put set the controller to Boost mode in which peak power output jumps to 1000W and torque climbs to 120Nm. Despite all that power, this is still a Class 1 motor with a maximum assist speed of 20 mph. It weighs just 2.5kg (5.5 lbs.), giving it one of the highest power-to-weight ratios on the market.

Amflow produces the PL Carbon in two different versions. The Amflow PL Carbon is made in four sizes and features 150mm of travel. In spec, the Amflow PL Carbon comes with the Avinox drive unit, an 800Wh battery, Fox Float Performance shock and Fox 36 Performance fork and a SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain with Magura MT-5 4-piston calipers matched with 203mm rotors. Maxxis tires, an alloy bar and KS dropper post.

The Amflow PL Carbon Pro features the same frame and Avinox motor, but upgrades the Fox Float Performance to a Fox Float X Factory and the fork to a Flox 36 Factory. Riders are given a choice between a lighter 600Wh battery and the 800Wh battery. The drivetrain goes to SRAM’s X0 Eagle transmission with a wireless AXS Pod controller. The bar is upgraded to carbon fiber and an adjustable-travel Fox Transfer dropper post.

The Amflow PL Carbon Pro is reported to weigh just 42 lbs., a weight that rivals some of the lighter eMTBs with lightweight motors that can’t match the output of the Avinox drive unit.

Amflow produces a smartphone app that will allow users to adjust certain performance parameters as well as remotely track the PL Carbon’s location. If the location is “abnormal” the owner will receive an alert on their phone.

The OLED display mounted in the top tube will display a range of information, not just battery level. The GaN charger is said to take a battery up to 75 percent of charge in just 90 minutes.
