With proper power management, Powerplay will yield 1,800-2,000m of climbing (based on 102 kg rider).
Our rapid-charging battery gets you to 80% capacity up to 66% faster than the competition.
We care about aesthetics. Powerplay not only rides like a mountain bike. It looks like one too.
Powerplay's superior 48-volt system increases range when compared to the standard 36-volt battery featuring the same capacity.

In 2009, the concept for a revolutionary electric drive system was presented to the design team at the company’s headquarters in Beauce, Québec. The forward-thinking vision paralleled Rocky Mountain’s philosophies. Together, Propulsion Powercycle was created with the purpose of developing an innovative electric drive system which would be named Dyname.
Three years later, in 2012, the design team debuted an urban electric bike featuring the proprietary Dyname 2.0 drive. Shortly thereafter, we introduced North America to its first electric bike sharing program. At this point, Europe had embraced the e-bike. Consumers in North America were curious. Media was asking when we’d witness the first truly capable trail-ready eMTB. Rocky Mountain would provide the answer.
In early 2017, the Rocky Mountain Altitude Powerplay launched, featuring the third-generation Dyname 3.0 drive developed collaboratively between our research centres in Vancouver, B.C. and Beauce, Quebec. Vancouver handled the bike and Quebec developed the drive system. The Powerplay was on.
In 2019, the Powerplay family, powered by Dyname, expands to three platforms – Altitude Powerplay, Instinct Powerplay, and Growler Powerplay. From 27.5 to 29er. From hardtail to full suspension. Powerplay leads the way with diversity, quality and—most of all—a great ride.
Every Powerplay bike is warrantied against defects in materials and manufacturing.
We stand behind our products. We’ve increased the warranty on our electrical components from 24 months to 36 months, making it the best in the industry in terms of coverage length. This change is retroactive and will apply to all Powerplay models from their purchase date to present day, and into the future.
