A new era for eMountain bikers
Perfect motor control
Sporty riding enjoyment: The multi-sensor concept enables a dynamic and responsive drive unit for precise acceleration and a unique trail experience.
Direct power transmission
Always full performance: The motor ensures powerful riding behaviour right from the start. The drive delivers constant power over a very wide cadence range – perfect for fast intermediate sprints and crisp changes of tempo.
Minimal pedal resistance
Authentic: The new gearbox concept significantly reduces pedalling resistance when the drive is switched off and at over 25 km/h, while the eMountain biker benefits from a natural riding sensation.
Highly adaptable: Weighing just 2.9 kg and with a size reduced by 48%, the new drive sets new standards. This allows different frame geometries with shorter chain stays and optimal integration, making eMountain bikes much more nimble and agile.
Ready for every terrain: In eMTB mode, the progressive motor support automatically adapts to the individual riding style. This prepares the bike for whatever the terrain may have to throw at it, without even having to change gear. The eMountain biker benefits from significantly better traction.
