Higher system weights and increased cornering speeds demand precise steering. Our 1 1/2" oversized head tube, combined with a tapered fork, deliver exactly that, giving the rider the confidence to push into the next corner that little bit harder.
Our e700C LITE frame comes with multiple fixing points, allowing for fenders, rear rack and a kick stand to be fitted. This makes all three models very adaptable in case you want to turn your sporty e-road bike into a fast commuter or touring bike. The eSPEEDER 400 EQ comes fully kitted out as standard – ready for the daily commuting duties.
Depending on your preferences or the terrain you are going to ride on, you can fit 700c wheels with up to 40 mm tyres, even when fenders are fitted. If you prefer 650B wheels, then up to 47 mm wide off-road biased tyres are no problem.
The rear hub MAHLE motor system X35+offers 40 Nm of smooth and drag-free support and is powered by a 250 Wh internal battery. The system is controlled by a one-button iWOC switch which is positioned on the top tube. Different colours of the switch indicate the support as well as the battery level.
Should the 250 Wh battery not be enough, or you are intending to go for an extra long outing, then you can fit a 250 Wh range extender. The range extender can be attached to one of the bottle cage fixing points and plugs straight into the system for immediate range extension.
All cables are run internally, to give the bike a neat look as well as protect them from moisture and dirt. On our e-road bikes, we go one step further by letting all cables enter the frame through a specific headset cup, making the cockpit super clean and clutter-free.
HFS-hydroforming Prolite 66 triple butted aluminium frame with internal 250 Wh battery technology. Comfort orientated geometry and usable with 700c or 650B wheels. Tyre clearance of up to 40 mm with fenders (700c). Fixing points for mudguards, rear rack and kickstand.
All models are equipped with a full carbon tapered fork. Carbon has great vibration absorbing properties in addition to being lightweight, so ride quality is improved. The carbon tapered steerer provides great stiffness to the front end of the bike, delivering precise and confidence-inspiring handling.
