29er wheels are a new-ish concept and many riders in the UK aren't used to seeing tyres so large, but the science behind them is impeccable. The larger contact patch gives the rider stability and predictability, and also they keep momentum so well. So don't be afraid of getting these larger wheels. It is very much worth it.
Whole Shimano System
This bike uses the Shimano STEPS system which is a 'total' system. The whole drivetrain - the mechanical and electrical parts - are manufactured by Shimano so that they work completely harmoniously. The effect for your ride is smoothness and efficiency. It's also a lightweight motor system too.
Stiff frame, kept light
The Speedfox uses Twin-Hollow Core technology; a type of frame that can accommodate an internal battery and yet maintain the stiffness in the front triangle that you need for a stable, powerful ride.
Summary: Swiss-engineering has been put to fantastic use in this light and agile full-suspension e-bike
As with all our e-bikes, this is available to test-ride. Contact your nearest showroom to reserve your slot.
