    Lightweight and compact

    The TQ-HPR50 drive unit offers natural assistance with 50 Nm and currently the highest torque density on the market: 82 Nm/dm³.

    Everything in sight

    The beautifully integrated display shows important data such as battery status, riding mode or available range at all times and directly in the field of vision.

    Goodbye chain, hello comfort

    Optionally, the chain drive can be replaced by a durable belt drive.

    Why make it difficult when it can be easy

    The integrated Vario seatpost, which can be lowered and raised at the push of a button, makes mounting and dismounting of the bike a lot easier. 

    Slim design

    The weight savings result from the use of the carbon frame and fork, as well as the extremely lightweight motor, which weighs in at only 1,850 g.

    Extra Power

    The standard 360-Wh battery can be extended by 160 Wh via the dual battery option.

    Internally routed cables

    The cables are routed through the headset into the frame interior. This not only looks sleek, but also protects the inner and outer cables and reduces the necessary operating forces.


    The SILKCARBON TQ has been designed to save a lot of weight. The carbon frame ensures efficient power transfer and also high sitting comfort. The fork is made of carbon as well and ensures low overall weight and optimum stiffness. The flyweight can be carried effortlessly over obstacles – which is particularly advantageous for stairs or pasture fences.

    An insider tip in terms of comfort is the optional adjustable seat post. It allows riders to get on and off the bike easily, for instance, at traffic lights. And thanks to optional studded tyres, the trekking bike also cuts a fine figure in off-road terrain.

    If you opt for a gear hub, we install a rust-free and maintenance-free carbon belt instead of a classic bicycle chain.


    Smart Headset

    All cables run from the handlebar through the headset into the frame interior and provide a tidy look. The shorter cables also save weight and don't come into the enclosure in front of the handlebars.

    Do you love the natural feel of a bike, but would like a little assistance when pedalling? Then the TQ motor is the right choice! You have to be as quiet as a mouse to hear the motort when cycling to work. The drive unit is barely visible, as all the components are beautifully integrated into the bike. The current battery status, riding mode and range are visible on the LED display integrated into the top tube. You will only feel the slight energy kick of the HPR50 "made in Germany" drive unit when riding.

    You can find out more about the TQ motor and other e-bike motor systems we use in this magazine article.
