The powerful SHIMANO STEPS motor is strong enough to handle the steepest of hills, yet intuitive enough to give you just the right amount of support for every pedal stroke along the way. Designed specifically to give you the natural feel of riding a normal bike. Weighs only 2.6kg, one of the lightest motors on the market. Stable, smooth intuitive power for improved bike handling over every part of your day. Solidly supports speeds up to 25 km/h.
Lightweight yet rigid crankset for direct power transfer. Both crankset and the rest of the drivetrain are built on SHIMANO’s proven technology. This gives you reliability and confidence from first to last pedal stroke. Drivetrain components are designed to work in sync with each other for unparalleled effectiveness and reliability. Spec’d with Gates Carbondrive chainring, belt, and rear sprocket for a maintenance low, durable, and strong drivetrain. A 165 mm crank arm minimises pedal strikes and maintains smooth cadence and motor assistance.
