The XH-7 is one of those bikes which people find difficult to classify. Why would anyone need a motor on a mountain bike? Well, simply put, not everyone wishes to spend all day climbing for just a few minutes descending. Also, not everyone can manage to climb every mountain, even if they’d like to.
With it’s high-performance Bosch Centre-Drive crank-based motor system, weight is centralised. Variable assistance up to 15.5mph (25kph), really helps on long climbs. The high capacity Lithium Polymer battery provides enough juice to out-run most mountain bikers, especially when ascending for miles at a time.
Prefer a hard-tail? Try the AVE XH-3.
