Powerful e-bike drive from TQ impresses in practical tests over multiple days:
The TQ HPR 120S drive from the technology company TQ has been recognized in the ‘Components’ category of the Design & Innovation Award 2018. The most powerful and compact drive on the market today, the TQ HPR 120S is well suited for electric bicycles, pedelecs and electric transport vehicles.
The award committee explained its choice as follows: “With soaring levels of power, the TQ HPR 120S makes every other e-bike drive look dated! With 120 Nm of constant torque, the motor lends mind-blowing acceleration to any bike. TQ has designed the motor and gearbox in a compact, round case only 144 millimeters in diameter, demanding very little space. Thanks to its enormous power, it's capable of darting up steep climbs and transporting heavy loads.”
Reiner Gerstner, CMO of the TQ Group: “This award shows that our product can combine state-of-the-art design with performance under extreme requirements. That is precisely our claim at TQ, and we are pleased to receive this recognition.” In designing the award-winning drive, TQ worked together with the agency Target-Design of Seefeld near Munich.
The Design & Innovation Award is both a seal of approval and a benchmark achievement for the bike industry's highest-performing products. The award is based on product tests in the real world and assesses products in their entirety. This year once again saw the award team – consisting of international journalists, professional test riders and industrial experts – invest more than 6,000 work hours in the award process to honor the best and most innovative products of the upcoming year.
