First Look: 2021 Flyer Uproc6 eMTB

Jul 13, 2020
by Daniel Sapp  

PRESS RELEASE: Flyer

Swiss brand Flyer's latest eMTB features a 29" front wheel paired to a 27.5" rear wheel, with a full carbon frame that provides 160mm of rear travel. That's paired with a 170mm fork, giving the bike a 64.5-degree head tube angle, 75.3-degree seat tube angle, 470mm reach, and 445mm chainstays, for a size large.

According to Product Manager Silas Furrer, “With the Uproc6 we made our vision of the perfect mountain bikecome true. The bike combines the climbing capabilities of an e-bike with the downhill performance of a first-class enduro bike."


The Uproc6 employs a Bosch Performance Line CX Gen4 motor system mated to a 625 Wh battery to provide up to 340% assistance and 85Nm of torque. The battery is secured via a 6mm Allen bolt to prevent it from any movement while riding.


The bike is spec'd for heavy enduro-style use with Double Down casing tires, heavy-duty brakes, and wheels, along with Fox's new 38 fork or the RockShox Zeb, depending on the model.

Flyer has the Uproc6 available in three different models, with the top of the line Uproc6 9.50 selling for 10,99 EUR, complete with a Fox 38 Performance fork and Fox DPX2 Factory shock along with a SRAM X01 Eagle AXS drivetrain and Reverb AXS seatpost, Magura MT7 brakes, DT Swiss HX 1501 Spline 30 wheels, and Maxxis tires. The Uproc 6 6.50 sells for 6,999 EUR and features a RockShox suspension package, SRAM NX group, Shimano BR-MT520 brakes, and DT Swiss H 1900 Spline 30 wheels.

 Best looking E-bike so far, in my opinion. I figure they got about another decade and a half to figure out these things before I’ll want one, but I can see a nice e-bike in my retirement years.

 Ditto, they should also sell that without the motor...

 You haven't seen the Orbea Wild then...

 @THE-GUNT: The Orbea is nice, I like this one better. Not a huge fan of the cross braces near the BB and I prefer the geometry of this as well. If I was getting an E-bike Enduro bike, get me slacker than 65 HA, IMHO. At some point, I think we will settle on something closer to a dirt bike HA of 63 for this type bike. This is at least close. Additionally, I’m a sucker for the mullet. Haven’t ridden one yet, but, especially for e-bike, I think it may be the way to go.

 @Shred-BC: I checked the website and it's 55lbs.
Very heavy!

 Aside from the Turbo Levo SL, I agree

 @endurocat: not that long ago that weight was the norm for DH bikes.
I have no idea how it relates to anything nowadays, but I thought was worth mentioning....
On that note..... disregard my comment.

 e-bikes with e-drivetrain and e-seatpost got me thinking that they should use the bike's battery. Hey SSSCHRAM im talking to you. Patent Pending.
  • 3 0
 Shimano already has this save for the dropper. Fox has already done live valve with Bosch. Seems like everyone else is closer than Sram and they aren’t going to add wires after making a big deal about not having them.

 this is an awful idea. have you ever ridden with someone on an ebike with Di2 that had their battery die? They are completely f*cked vs grinding it out on a 50lb bike which is doable with a little effort.
  • 15 0
 @noplacelikeloam: Having done this.. the bike (atleast my E-bike) will always reserve battery to allow the Di2 to work fter the motor cuts out.

 @Healelw1: Ha, good to know. Buddy had a Pivot and just crapped out on him. Major bummer.

 Then you'd be back to having cables to your dropper to run the power... Smile

 Yeah you are right, now I think it's a bad idea. This is the cheapest market research ever

 Looks like a... Levo? Sorry I’m new to the ebike version of this game

 Actually looks a bit like an Orbea Occam, but with a THICC bottom tube.

 Uproc6 Sounds like a 4x4 name, and the top bike is priced like one.

 That's a good looking bike! Looks futuristic, but not over the top. Neat.

 38mm forks are 29" wheels really help balance out the proportions of e-bikes. The downtube and motor area look less out of proportion with the rest of the bike now.

Making the downtube slightly more vertical is a clever trick too as it reduces the overall visual presence of the most out of proportion element of an ebike.

 Rad looking lines. Proportions looks great.

 Looks good, yesterday I saw what I think is the most interesting ebike, decathlon stilus, why, because it's a full sus ebike with the latest Bosch motor for just £2700. It's not top spec like this, but when ebikes start to be produced at that price point, on par with a normal full sus , then it really will come down to choice between analogue and digital. And I can see a lot people thinking if they both cost the same , may as well get the assistance.

 looks amazing!

 I don’t anticipate going electric any time soon but the somewhat easily removable battery seems like a must. Especially if you are on a long road trip or something you are gonna want 2 or 3 batteries to swap between while charging and whatnot
  • 3 1
 I Like the looks and geo. of this bike, well done...Looks like a Focus and Specialized love child, lol.. However my thoughts on ebikes remain the same and is Spot-On. Which is motor Manufactures need to focus on silencing the motors (Brose gets an A+), less power with a similar range(smaller battery) and consistent reliability...That is how the bike manufactures will win the majority market share..

 Lol no ones hating anymore ????. Ebikes ftw
  • 5 1
 the haters have finally worked out how to limit their feed to non-ebike material

 @enduroNZ: I’m still here!

 All the haters eventually went out and tried one, saw Wyn Masters ride one, or otherwise were exposed in a positive manner and no longer exist.

 Do any of these....bikes have a kers type system?? Thinking about how you could use the riders pedalling input to generate at least some energy reserve. Not for me at the moment but when/if I get old or broken, I'll get one.
  • 4 0
 Any regen would be only beneficial when the motor wasn’t driving the wheels and then you wouldn’t be pedalling. It could possibly be done in a non assisted mode but pedalling a 20+ kg bike is bad enough without the added drag of generating energy.
Regen braking isn’t possible due to having a free hub. You would need a fix wheel to make this possible in a mid drive design.

 Just went to their site and viewed the "comfortable hardtail" the Uproc2. Wonder why they put that bike in the E-mountainbikes for the Alps my ass hurts just thinking about it

 Flyer is kind of a cool company. You can just go to their factory, pick a bike and take it for a ride for the rest of the day (for a small fee).
