Pinarello has updated its Nytro range of E-Bikes, adding the new German-built TQ HPR50 motor system to its E-Road, E-Gravel and E-All Road variants that’s capable of delivering up to 50Nm of torque and 300W of power in a quiet, compact design.
“Not only is the TQ HPR50 lightest e-bike system in its class, its compact size means that it fits discreetly into the frame and provides a Q-factor [the horizontal distance between the outer faces of the crank arms where the pedals attach] of 135mm, giving the same naturally efficient pedal stroke as an analogue bike,” boasts Pinarello.
At the top of the range is the Nytro E-Road, which Pinarello claims is the lightest electric assisted road bike on the market, tipping the scales at 11.4kg (25.13 pounds) thanks to the use of lightweight Toray T900 carbon.
Next, is the Nytro E-Gravel, which bumps down to the slightly heavier Toray T700, but Pinarello says it’s just as comfortable as the higher modulus T900.
Both models share the same Dogma-esque frameset, including an aero-profiled seatpost for the E-Road, while the E-Gravel gets a conventional 31.6mm round seatpost, giving owners the option of adding a compatible aftermarket dropper post.
“The head tube, down tube, and rear stays have been designed to obtain maximum aerodynamic performance. And with Pinarello’s TiCr [an internal cable routing system that uses a 1.5in upper bearing], every cable is integrated into the handlebars to maximize the reduction of drag coefficient and provide a cleaner design,” explains Pinarello.
Additionally, the both frames are built to Pinarello’s usual asymmetric design principles “with the left side structured to compensate for the greater force exerted by the drive on the right side”, providing enough clearance for tires up to 700×32 on the E-Road and up to 700x50mm on the E-Gravel, as well as provisions for mudguards and a rear rack on the latter.
The final model in the lineup is the Nytro E-All Road, which shares the same frame as the E-Gravel, albeit with a flat handlebar set-up and a Shimano Deore groupset, lights and mudguards.
“This is a bike designed to be pedalled every day, whether it’s to the office or on a wonderful adventure at the weekend,” Pinarello points out
The Nytro E-Road is available in three guises, while the Nytro E-Gravel comes in three options from SRAM.
