SyncDrive Motor Technologies

Giant offers three different SyncDrive motor options for its various E-bike models. Each one is engineered and tuned to support specific riding styles. From daily commutes to recreational and high-performance road and off-road riding, there’s a SyncDrive motor for every E-bike adventure. Here’s a look at the three levels of SyncDrive.

SyncDrive Pro
SyncDrive Pro powered by Yamaha is designed for high-performance E-bike riding. Giant tuned the motor to make it more powerful, producing a performance-oriented riding style. The lightweight, compact SyncDrive Pro motor is used primarily on Giant’s high-performance E-bikes including the new Full-E+ SX Pro and Full-E+ Pro off-road models.

SyncDrive Sport
SyncDrive Sport offers three support modes and is equipped on E-bikes that are used for both everyday riding and more demanding off-road riding. This small mid-drive motor delivers a powerful 80Nm of torque and is widely acclaimed for its performance and reliability. It delivers instant motor engagement and smooth power delivery that feels like a natural extension of a rider’s own pedaling power.

SyncDrive Life
SyncDrive Life is the ideal solution for E-bikes with low step-through frames. This compact, mid-drive motor ensures perfect weight distribution, which makes the E-bike more stable and balanced. Centralized mass leads to a natural weight balance while riding and while stopped, so it’s a great choice for recreational E-bike riders. It delivers a maximum 60Nm (Newton Meters) of smooth torque, letting you conquer hills and greater distances with ease.
