Take Charge Of Your Trail Riding Using Yeti’s World-First Race-Specific E-MTB

Sep 14, 2021

Category: Rides

Although e-bikes used to be something of an outlier in the cycling industry, these days, every major manufacturer is looking to get in on the trend. And it’s for good reason; as the technology becomes more advanced and also more accessible, no longer do electric bikes have to be ugly, bulky things overburdened by unsightly batteries.

Case in point: the Yeti 160E. As the world’s first race-specific E-MTB, the 160E is a ride that breaks new ground for cyclists. That is to say, rather than acting as a crutch (like electric bikes often have in the past), Yeti’s offering instead serves as an enhancement, allowing riders to go further, faster, and with more fun. And here’s the thing: the 160E is a bike that’s purpose-built for high-speed enduro racers — not merely a repackaged frameset with an added battery. As such, it rides on Yeti’s all-new Sixfinity suspension platform, enabling 160mm of rear travel as well as user-adjustable progression rates. What’s more, it comes crafted from lightweight carbon fiber, with Fox shocks, DT Swiss Wheels, and a Shimano groupset. Powered by a 630Wh battery and a Shimano EP8 motor, you can buy one starting at $10,100.

Purchase: $10,100+
