Vintage Electric Bicycles is honored to connect arms with a few of the South Bay location's ideal epicurean ability in support of the victims of the recent wine nation fires. The Santa Clara based e-bike manufacturer is contributing a custom-painted fire truck themed bike to the alleviation initiative, putting it on the auction block for the highest bidder.
Structure on over a years of complete suspension framework design, the Motobecane HAL eBoost PRO 27.5+ is made for approximately 5 inches of terrain subjugating travel both front and also rear. The HAL shock absorber utilizes a chainstay installed pivot for even more supple suspension tracking as well as control even under difficult stopping.
The reversed style keeps constant lubrication on the fork sliders, helping improve level of sensitivity throughout the stroke, especially off the top. And the Boltron works with 29er wheels and also tires up to 2.4 broad, or 27.5 hoops with tires as much as 3.0. Travel is 120mm or 150mm. We tester Haibike XDURO AllMtn 8.0 eMTB was set-up with plus tries as well as 150mm of traveling. Other topline attributes include stock fork leg protectors as well as a beefy 20x110mm axle. Press bet a full tech run-through, including a gone through of the wheel elimination process.
No chairlifts in your neck of the timbers? No problem with the new Haibike DWNHLL, a 200mm trail crushing e-mountain bike that awaits numerous laps on the gnarliest of gnar. Element highlights include a Kashima-coated Fox 40 dual crown DH fork, and also the industry-leading Bosch drive system with 500 Wh battery. The top of the line version comes in at $7000.
With its combination of smooth appearances, Stumpjumper derived handling, and also efficient power delivery, the brand-new carbon Turbo Levo strengthens Specialized's placement among the leading makers of e-MTBs. Rivals are capturing up promptly, but for now, the Levo remains the bike to acquire.
Tires in the Bontrager line are not ready for this bike yet, with the only available plus tire being the fast-rolling Chupacabra. Rather Trip sourced the Schwalbe Nobby Nic for the work, as well as it does a great task in the back. Nevertheless, we could not wait for the arrival of the Bontrager XR4 or something equal in plus sizing. This will certainly allow the Powerfly to reach its full potential with great cornering side knobs.
Swiss bike manufacturer BMC has been studying the MTB e-bike market carefully to explore where they can compete in the segment. Their access is a no-holds disallowed 150mm travel plus bike called the Trailfox Amp.
Clearly there's a considerable difference between a wispy 22-pound XC hardtail and also the 51-pound Haibike XDURO AllMtn 8.0 eMTB that worked as test burro for our testimonial of the Magura Boltron suspension fork. Though they both share the exact same basic mountain bike moniker, genuinely the last deserves its own classification and also components. I wouldn't dare charge right into the gnar on this bike were it not for its beefy alloy framework, effective 4-piston brakes, and the Boltron, with its 40mm stanchions, 20mm thru axle, and 150mm of well-lubricated suspension.
