The VMG Typhon The first Enduro E MTB to be developed in Australia.

(/ˈtaɪfɒn/, /ˈtaɪfən/ “The father of all beasts”)

The VMG Typhon making premium performance available for everyone

The first Enduro E MTB developed in Australia, using expert craftmanship, design and engineering from around the world.

The Typhon is built to our own unique design in our own tooling using high quality Japanese carbon fiber. 

The modern and aggressive design, suspension kinematics and completely up to date geometry inspires confident riding.

The unique design challenges of an E MTB such as keeping the chain stays short, active suspension for climbing, yet good mid stroke support and bottom out resistance all while fitting 160mm of silky smooth travel, meant designing the overall package required many iterations to get just right.

The Typhon utilizes the tried and tested four bar linkage which means reduced bearings in the linkages for more reliability and less bearing maintenance. A vertical rear shock layout reduces side loading and wear on the rear shock

The frame has been tested at loads of 70 – 80% higher than required for ISO 4210 for both strength and fatigue, no shortcuts have been taken with this frame.

The Typhon is powered by the new magnesium cased Bafang M510 48V, which offers 95nm of torque, 20% more power, and 0.5 kg less weight than the previous generation. An integrated brake rotor/droput speed sensor streamlines the package for a more reliable and cleaner look. (Optional Bafang M600 motor for some regions)

Battery power is a whopping 820 WH from a genuine Bafang BT25 battery.  On average at least 10% higher than most other E MTB.  This huge capacity lets you explore further and climb the steepest hills knowing you have plenty of range in reserve.
