If you're like the majority of our customers, you're interested in an electric bike that's going to be capable of taking you out of the city and into the green spaces of the countryside with their un-tarmac'd trails and dirt tracks through grassy meadows. An electric hardtail mountain bike with 29 inch wheels is about as close to a 'universal' countryside e-bike as it gets. Capable of handling unpaved routes while keeping you in control. That's the crucial bit. It's all very well riding a lightweight, sleek, racing bike off-road, but when it gets dusty and bumpy, you will want traction, good braking and agility to keep on top of the ride - and keep on top of your bike!
Bigger battery...but it's hidden
Bosch are now creating 625wh batteries. This is 25% bigger than previous batteries, with extra mileage being your reward. A lot of our customers like the idea of riding with the biggest battery possible. With an e-bike with off-road capability, you're always tempted to "see what's over there", and this obviously requires a little bit more battery life. Now you can happily explore that much further without battery anxiety.
You've got to 'C.X.' to believe it
The Bosch CX motor is serious fun. Serious. Fun. It's a combination of having enormous power at the top of it's range, but also a smooth power curve up to that point. Our head mechanic often uses the phrase, "It flatters the rider" and it really does! Get on an electric mountain bike like this and the 'confidence' of the bikes is contagious.
Summary: Feel in control even after the tarmac runs out. We have been happily selling Scott eMTBs for years. Let's put it this way, you won't be 'cross' when riding the Sub Cross eRide.
As with all our e-bikes, this is available to test-ride. Contact your nearest showroom to reserve your slot. Size guide: Check with your nearest branch.
You can count on the Bosch CX motor to get you to the summit smiling.

About the Scott brand
The Scott Sports brand is a pioneer in several fields from skiing and running to cycling and now e-biking. In fact it was Scott Sports who pushed forward electric bike design with their first collaborations with Bosch. Their comfortable, fit for purpose electric bikes have become over the years here our best selling crank drive bikes and several staff members here ride a Scott e-bike themselves.
Based now in Switzerland, Scott Sports continues to innovate and push e-bike design forward. Only their e-bikes come with the TwinLoc system which allows you to have complete control over your suspension; perfect for the fast-changing terrain of a trail centre. Their Sub Active range are some of the most comfortable electric bikes you'll ever try and are popular with both leisure riders and commuters.
