[Press Release] – Givisiez, Switzerland. September 6th, 2021. – A true Trail bike from fork to fender, the new Patron eRIDE is designed to conquer any terrain. From fast high alpine to technical narrow trail in the forest, the Patron eRIDE will give plenty of support and power with its 160mm of travel front and rear. As comfortable on the climbs as the descents, the Patron eRIDE descends like an enduro bike but keeps the pedaling efficiency of a cross-country bike thanks to the Twinloc-System.
The team took a blank page when designing the Patron and used the opportunity to rethink integration, design and a greatly improved riding experience. Integrated shock and cables, totally dialed geometry and a new drive unit from Bosch with a bigger battery, positioned to allow for optimum power & cooling.
The Patron comes with a completely new and revolutionary design. The rear suspension is fully integrated into the frame and gives 160mm of travel. More than purely a design statement, the shock integration gives space to the other elements such as the motor, the battery and a water bottle. Easy to access, the shock comes with our TwinLoc technology to lock the suspension directly from the handlebar for optimal pedaling efficiency.
The Bosch motor comes with 85Nm and up to 340% assistance and totally new software that amplifies this natural feeling. The motor is one of the key element on any E-MTB, therefore we wanted to protect it from impacts. On the Patron eRIDE, the motor is vertically positioned and supported from underneath. The frame acts like a nest with the motor cradled on top for a natural support.
As the Patron eRIDE motor is supported from underneath, its top part seats in the open air, therefore, like a chimney the air is free to go out. This ventilation stream is even reinforced when you ride thanks to the holes on the cover.
The Patron eRIDE comes with the latest electric technology from Bosch. Looking for more autonomy? The Patron sets a new standard with the new 750Wh battery and its 20% additional capacity. One of the biggest achievement of this bike is to fit the biggest battery on the market without impacting the tube proportions, we were also able to keep offering all sizes from S to XL. Expect to do up to 100km or 2000m of elevation on eco mode or half that if you select the Turbo mode.
The Patron eRIDE comes with a unique technology to provide an optimal battery support. How? The battery is the heaviest element of the bike, therefore it’s crucial to have it properly mounted without compromising the ease of removal. The battery fits like a glove into its tube which is incorporated into the main carbon frame. This tube in tube construction ensures an easy battery slide-in when it’s time to go riding. Cable routing is as well nice and tidy too.
Electric mountain bikes have a crowded handlebar, between the brakes, dropper post, gears, drive unit cables, remote and suspension lockout, that’s a lot of cables. The Syncros Engineering team together with the SCOTT team worked on a clean solution to route cables directly into the headset for a clean finish. Inspired by our racing department, the Patron comes with the carbon 1 piece stem/handlebar combo, the Syncros Hixon iC SL.
A front and a rear fender are delivered with the bike, both fenders are tailor made for the Patron for a clean and perfect adjustment. For optimal security, the rear fenders come with integrated LED lights that are directly powered by the motor battery. A cable is already routed, and a plug already mounted on the handlebar for a front light. A range of Syncros accessories are available for the Patron eRIDE such as a kickstand, a rear fender, a rear rack or an action camera mount.
