This is not only my choice but also the cyclists who have had so much fun riding this bike. This years winner is the Mondraker Crafty R Full Suspension Electric Mountain Bike. “The stealth Alloy Evo chassis of the Crafty R houses the latest, most powerful Bosch Gen 4 motor and 625Wh powertube battery to minimise climb times and surge you out of every corner. Fox’s monster new 38 Fork syncs beautifully with the Crafty’s forward geometry handling for maximum attack authority. Fox’s DPX2 has been totally revised for next level control via the E-bikes optimised Zero Suspension Kinematic. Bombproof DT Swiss hybrid 29er wheels, triple compound EXO+ reinforced Maxxis Minnion 2.6 tyres and 200mm rotors lock down control to open up full throttle on every run.” – so say Mondraker.
What does all this “gobbledegook” mean you may ask? It is a bike that will take you anywhere and will bring you back safe as it gives you immediate confidence. This Mondraker E-bike is so powerful that is flattens hills and so stable to encourage fast down hill descents. That’s what the powerful Bosch CX motor gives you, coupled with the 625Wh Bosch battery for all day enjoyment. Off road, the full suspension is perfectly balanced to ensure a ‘floating’ ride over the toughest terrain.
What more can you ask of a bike other than pure pleasure?
