The double butted aluminium Superlite frame was developed specifically to match the requirements of the new Bosch system. The frame is extremely stiff despite being very light - and that means fantastic drivetrain efficiency and superb steering precision. That's a good start, but it's really the combination of our in-house Agile Ride Geometry (ARG) and the optimal positioning of the Bosch system (ODP) that transforms the Reaction Hybrid Race into a fleet-footed, fast-accelerating trail rocket with the kind of handling that most e-bikes can only dream of.
Bosch's new CX drive, with up to 75Nm of torque, is the most powerful MTB drive system available. It gives you the ultimate motor-driven support for longer rides, while taking you to impressive heights for relatively little effort. The standard battery is an impressive 400Wh, but you can fit the optional 500Wh unit for even greater range. Shimano's brand new 11 speed XT transmission - with XT ShadowPlus rear derailleur - has the widest possible gear range, making it the perfect setup for an e-bike. It's the same story with the brakes, Shimano's BR-M506 hydraulic discs providing supremely powerful, reliable stopping in all weathers. Light, stiff wheels are built around next generation Shimano XT hubs. The RockShox Recon Silver suspension fork features 100mm of smooth, controllable travel, stiff 32mm stanchions and adjustable rebound damping with remote lockout - perfect for clearing the path ahead and embarking on new trail adventures.
