With 2020 fast approaching the popularity of electric mountain bikes continues to grow at a rapid pace, as does the advanced technology involved with them. E-Bike manufacturers are constantly striving to give us more power, more battery range, lighter bikes and an even better riding experience.
My top 4 bikes in this electric mountain bike review include the Specialized Turbo Levo Expert, the Merida EOneSixty range, the Cube Team Action Stereo range and the Lapierre EZesty Ultimate.
E MTB Review 1: Lapierre E-Zesty Ultimate
The Lapierre E-Zesty Ultimate E MTB has broken new ground using the new Fuzua motor and battery system. Lapierre has combined a full carbon fibre frame with a superb selection of parts to produce one of the lightest E MTBs on the market. The result? A very stylish E mountain bike from the French company that will certainly turn heads on the trail.
E MTB Review 2: Merida EOneSixty
Again, Merida has improved the EOneSixty range with carbon front triangles and the new internal Shimano battery. This electric mountain bike is also available with the new 12 speed Shimano group sets – offering some choice in a world dominated by Sram. Merida has launched into the new 2020 E MTB bikes with a 29″ front wheel and 27.5″ rear, giving an awesome ride and increased mud clearance on the rear.
E MTB Review 3: Cube Team Action Stereo
The new Team Action E mountain bikes from Cube use the Bosch 625Wh internal battery with the gen 4 CX performance motor and Kiosk display. This specialist bike comes dripping with fox top tier components and the all-new Shimano XT group set. Cube retail these bikes at £5499 which is an incredible value with the all-carbon front triangle. Stunning looking bikes with some very cool paint finish.
E MTB Review 4: Specialized Expert Levo FSR
Finally, the last electric mountain bike review in my 2020 round-up is the 2020 Specialized Expert Levo. It oozes class with its two excellent colour schemes. This combined with their 700Wh battery and Brose motor makes the Levo an instant classic. The Levo range was one of the first E-Bikes to hit our shop floor and it has always been a very popular choice.
With our workshops being extremely busy and having to prioritise our customers we, unfortunately, can only carry out warranty work on E MTB bikes we have supplied. When you buy from Primera Sports we carry out all warranty work, bike setups and firmware updates FOC.
