Back in stock July 2020.
The Dillenger Hunter (now in its second generation) is an off road electric bike at the top of our range of production off-road models, featuring the brand new monster BBS-M600 (500W nominal, 1,200W peak) power unit, hydraulic disk brakes and a high discharge potential Samsung battery. With a top speed of up to 40-45km/h it's an obvious staff favorite. This model is strictly for sale as 'off road, private property use only'. Cleverly styled to resemble a regular ebike, the Hunter V2 is anything but. As the V2 designation suggests, this electric bike is an absolute rocket. It's a staff favorite thanks to the ability to cruise along at high speed on something that feels lightweight, powerful, but doesn't look like an electric motorbike. The new model hunter also features Nobby Nic Schwalbe tyres and Samsung 10.5Ah battery (now 504Wh!).
A careful consideration in the design of any electric vehicle systems is the balance of capability between the individual cell, battery pack, BMS (battery management system), controller and motor. The design discharge potential of the cell type should always be higher than the discharge requirement of the pack and the pack should be more capable than the design requirements of the BMS. The discharge capability of the battery and BMS together should then be higher than the requirements placed on the pack by the motor and controller. So when we put together the Hunter V2 with the high current and voltage demands, only the Samsung high power cells were fit for the task.
Proper stopping power
Most bikes don't regularly hit up to 40-45km/h on the flat so it's pretty important to have exceptional stopping power. The Tektro hydraulic disk brake system feels as good as motorcycle brakes on the Hunter. The larger diameter disks provide even more leverage to stop the bike when needed. The M600 PAS is torque based which means e-brake sensors are no longer required as the controller inhibits power to the motor as an added safety when pedal torque is reduced or the throttle is at zero percent. This means the brakes have an easier life and the system is extremely safe.
1,200W Peak Mid Drive Power
The BBS-M600 is based on the BBS-HD from the Hunter V1. The HD internals were a complete ground-up rework for the most powerful and efficient mid drive unit on the market. The BBS-02 was a 9 FET 25A system based on the BBS-01. The BBS-HD has grown a lot in size up to 12 FET and can comfortable churn out 30A all day long without missing a beat. The BBS-M600 comes custom spec'd with a gear shift sensor as standard. The BBS-M600 is at the limit of what is viable on an e-bike for a mid drive powerplant. The gear shift sensor works with the motor and intermittently inhibits the power from the motor during each gear shift, to ensure you don't throw a chain or damage the shifter and derailleur. We've tuned this system so you don't have to.
The Hunter is designed to look like a bicycle, but feel like a crossover between a bicycle, and an electric motorbike. This bike provides limitless fun, while riding a machine that still resembles a bicycle, not a motorcycle. More finesse goes into the design of product that has performance but is also subtle at the same time. This 'best of both worlds' was the design mantra for the Hunter range and the Hunter V2 is at the pinnacle.
