Yes, Electric Dirt Jump Bikes Actually Exist

Aug 26, 2022 at 12:10
by Mike Kazimer  

I can honestly say that I've never thought that my dirt jumper needed an electric motor. Hell, it barely needs a chain. Onyx, a California-based company that go their start making electric mopeds inspired by cafe racers, think differently. They've launched two motorized dirt jumpers that they're billing as “all-terrain hyper slayers.” The hyperbole is extra thick with this launch – the bikes are also claimed to allow riders to “hit the biggest jumps in the park and tame the most challenging urban obstacles without breaking a sweat.” However, sweating will likely occur if you need to lift the bike over a fence to get into a spot, or to evade an over-eager security guard – the bikes weigh around 40 pounds.

The bikes even have S.W.A.T., but it's not for storing tools inside the frame à la Specialized. Instead, that acronym means Smooth Weld Additive Technology - Onyx are using an additive welding process that gives the aluminum frame an extra smooth look, without the visible beads around joints that comes from traditional welding.

There are two different models, one with a 500 Wh battery and an Onyx-labeled mid drive motor that has a pre-sale price of $1,999, and the other, the LZR Pro, which has a 900 Wh battery and a Bafang motor that's priced at $2,799 USD.


LEDs indicate the pedal assist mode and the battery level.

It's hard to argue against the simplicity of a dirt jumper. Take a singlespeed hardtail frame, add some 26” wheels, one brake, maybe a suspension fork to help with botched landings, and you have the recipe for endless good times at the pump track, dirt jumps, or skate park. There's minimal maintenance required, and no need to worry about getting upgrade anxiety whenever some new 13-speed drivetrain or fancy shock gets released.

Arguing against the need for a motorized dirt jumper? That's easy. There are already way too many one-wheelers trying to make their way around pump tracks – the last thing the world needs is another motorized contraption zipping around what should be an accessible area for riders of all abilities. The same goes for dirt jumps – I can already picture the case marks when little Billy realizes that it's a lot harder to get enough air to make it to the landing on a 40 pound bike, motor or not.

What about the concept that this could be some sort of adventure commuter, a bike that you can hit urban features with on on your way to work? Unless your commute is only a block or two, or you really, really like pedaling standing up, I don't really see that as a viable option.

Who knows, though, I've been wrong plenty of times before. Maybe there's a whole cadre of retired dirt jumpers that have been dreaming of the day they wouldn't need to pedal the hundred yards or so back to the top of a jump line.


The future hurts my brain.

 @ktmrider143: The problem in the U.S. and Canada seems to be that the lack of culture. They are unable to express themselves in anything but superlatives, cliches, and this stupid style of trying to communicate as the informal yet informed everyman.
Conversations with Americans and/or Canadians often involve people pretending to be like a character off the idiot box.
Sorry, that was all uncalled for, but we have to make the comments section fun, and if we can't do that then we have to make it cathartic.

 Well, you do see most DJ riders pushing their bikes back up to the roll-in for another session.
I could also see them using a "thrust" button to gain speed between hits, to prevent risk of slipping a pedal while cranking. But it does not excuse the god awful appearance of this bike and size of the battery.

 @Cafemagnum: I don’t really see how you're going to win over any actual dirt jumpers with that attitude. I just don’t see how that this product has any positives that out weigh the negatives for it’s intended market. I’m willing to bet that the rider in the video has a lot more tricks in his bag, but that’s all that he could pull off with that thing. I guess my analog world of thinking just doesn’t get the necessity for an unnecessary product, maybe with some more name calling and belittling from companies I might get it. Maybe I’ll look into it more but right now I don’t have time as one of my electronic devices broke cause it fell on the ground.

 I mean, you're just proving everyone's point of the sheer absurdity: the bike is so pointless that you're taking it to the store instead of jumping it.
Literally the main point of Jump bikes is that they're light and nimble for tricks, not so heavy that you end up using it to ride around the block and barely jump it.

 I don't really understand the concept of an electric commuter. For me, commuting is either about saving money or getting in shape for riding season. A $4,000 e-bike doesn't fit either of those criteria plus I can't image parking a $4,000 bike all day outside my office. I built a $1,500 dirt jumper (with a dropper post) that I love for the mellow trails near Cleveland, and would really enjoy riding it to work but I wouldn't park that at work. My commuter is a $300 rigid single speed.

The vehicle I ride (bike or auto) 100% has everything to do with destination and the activity in mind and zero percent to do with my financial planning or fitness.

Like most riders I know, I've spent a decent heap of money on bikes, and the wear and tear on my body has probably negatively impacted my fitness, especially commuting.

But if you’re just riding dirt jump trails-fine by me and looks fun.

My main beef with Bropeds is they endanger access that mountain biker advocacy groups have fought for. In particular, some areas clearly don’t allow motorized access. Please (PLEASE!!) don’t ride your Bropeds where you could jeopardize access for all of us.

If you’re riding 2 tracks to hunt, riding where they’re allowed, commuting to work etc. have at it.

 There is a potential for a bike like this for trying things impossible to do without a pedal assist: jumping a set of dirt jumps backwards or hitting gaps with an uphill approach (stairgaps up stairs). For any serious dirt jumping it's a huge no-no. Tailwhips are going to be difficult to initiate/stop because of the mass of the battery. Current dj bikes weight between 10 and 12 kgs and here we're looking at 18 kgs.

 Well as a concept I guess there is promise, a little electric assistance to get you back to the top would be a nice creature comforts, but 900Wh??!!!! That's bigger than the battery on full fat e-bikes! Makes no sense to put restroom brakes and a no-name fork on there too for three grand...

 alright as much as I don't think this product is a good idea at all, I can see how it'd benifit me. I live about 2 1/2 miles from the trails/dirt jumps I ride, and I don't have a car to drive there and back, so I end up pedaling my full squish super far just to try and hit jumps on a trail bike. I love jumps but the only reason I don't have a dirt jumper is because I don't want to pedal it that far. now maybe if they had made this product actually useable I would invest in one, but for now I'm gonna stay away, idk how someone could hit a jump with this.
