All for fun, and fun for all. This lively enduro e-bike is your ticket to the far side of the mountain where the best-kept trail secrets are. Shimano's latest development, the E7000, keeps your momentum going with customizable assist modes. This rig lets you cover more ground, plus you'll save your energy for good times riding, rather than sad times climbing. Blended 279 geometry delivers the punch-it factor of a 27.5 with the roll-over advantage of a 29er. And it's no surprise that this tech-laden trail beast is nicely spec'd with Fox Performance Float 36 and DPX2 shocks, so you're up for an I-can't-believe-it's-not-butter kinda ride.
