At Interbike 2014 we found a company called Höganäs that is just breaking into the electric bike motor market. Höganäs is a Swedish company that has its roots in the development of metal powders for the automotive industry. By applying some of their metal powder technology to electric bike motor design, they've been able to magnetically insulate some motor components and create a transverse flux motor for e-bikes. David from Höganäs does a great job of explaining their motor in the video, so be sure to check it out.
Instead of having windings like a standard motor, the Höganäs Eclino motor has three coils that run parallel to each other. The result is a motor with greater torque, hill climbing ability, and efficiency.
For more info on the Eclino drive system, check out the Höganäs website.
