ELITE

MTB HARDTAIL

REDUCED TO THE MAX.

We've learnt a great deal about both carbon frame construction and the specific needs of e-bikes over the years. All of that knowledge and experience has been poured into the Elite Hybrid C:62's brand new frame. The result is a lightweight, rigid chassis built from our premium C:62 carbon, using our Advanced Twin Mould manufacturing technique. Bosch's PowerTube battery lives inside the large, super-stiff down tube under its own sealed cover – but you can charge it without removing it from the frame. The new, sleeker battery and drive housings have given us space to incorporate two bottle cage mounts. Cables run internally to complement the elegant looks, with provision for a stealth dropper post upgrade in the future. The 12mm through axle, oversized down tube and tapered head tube combine to creat the stiffest possible structure for transmitting the Bosch drive's power to the rear wheel, and Agile Ride Geometry (ARG) ensures you're always in control in every trail situation. If there's a faster, more inspirational e-hardtail, we're not aware of it...

Tuned Drive Position

Unlike the conventional position of the Bosch drive unit in the frame, we rotate the motor by between 8° and 31°, depending on the bike's intended use. This allows the chain stays to be connected lower down on the frame and thus drastically minimises chain slap. The length of the chain stays can also be optimised as a result. The sportive and agile look is a positive side effect.
