Bergamont has presented it’s new E-Trailster eMTB platform at Eurobike 2018. The new E-bikes are equipped with Shimano Steps E8000 motors and integrated batteries. We went to take a closer look at the Bergamont stand and examined what else the brand is offering.
E-Trailster – a new range from Bergamont
The E-Trailster is a completely new full suspension platform for Bergamont. It’s designed around the Shimano Steps 8000 system and the battery has been fully integrated into the downtube. The E-Trailster, as the name suggests, is a pure bred E-Trailbike with 160mm travel up front and 145mm at the back. The top-end model is equipped with high-end parts from Fox and promises excellent performance. We’re also pleased to see grips and saddles from Ergon, the specialists for on-bike ergonomics and comfort.
The 145 mm rear has been designed around a four-bar Horst link. The design adds an additional pivot in the chainstays i.e. the Horst Link, that results in a linear, upward axle path.
A look at the geometry sheet promises good handling and the tidy design is complemented nicely by the Shimano Steps E8000 motor. The motor is controlled by the new E7000 remote and all the required information is provided by the monochrome E7000 display.
Prices will star at €3999, going up to €5999.

The E-Trailster Models
We particularly like the ability to switch between 27.5 and 29” wheels, with a flip chip allowing the geometry to be adjusted to suit each wheel size. Bergamont has also followed the (much appreciated) trend for shorter crank arms and have fitted 165mm items here.
There’s one more very practical detail: the E-Bikes feature a kickstand mount and the matching stand is available from Synchros for € 29.95.
The E-Contrail family consists of shorter 130mm travel E-Trailbikes that offer a sporty ride. The geometry should suit a wide range of riders and the Shimano Steps E8000 system will likely improve range and exploration capabilities. The newly designed chassis is nicely finished and should have good handling paired with excellent climbing abilities. The tidy design fits into the Bergamont family very well.

Are E-Bikes just for grown ups? No way! The E-Revox Junior 24 makes it easy for kids to get a foothold in the world of E-Bikes. The E-Revox features youth specific geometry and 24” wheels. There will also be a 26” version for older children. Interestingly, the 24” version provides assistance only up to 20 km/h, whilst the 26″ version cuts out at the usual 25 km/h assistance limit.
The E-Revox models are equipped with the near-silent Bosch Active and Active Plus motors and are fitted with 400 Wh batteries.
Bergamont E-Horizon FS & E-Helix FS
Bergamont has continued to develop its Universal Chassis Concept and has expanded its offerings. The new Trekking all-rounders E-Horizon FS and E-Helix FS set new standards in comfort, ergonomics, handling and safety. The combination of the powerful Bosch motor and full suspension with 100/80mm travel front/rear make these E-Bikes very versatile options.
The E-Trekking full-susser has its place both in an urban environment and further afield. High-quality components, ergonomic contact points along with an integrated lighting setup make these perfect for tours and a potential choice for commuting. It’s also interesting to see the unisex geometry designed around a lower standover height.
The E-Trailster and E-Contrail are two high quality E-Mountainbikes. We’re not surprised that Bergamont has designed these around the Shimano Steps E8000 motor as it is a very capable and popular system.
Introducing children’s E-Bikes no doubt took a little bit of courage, but we’re convinced that the choice will bear out and there will be significant demand for them.
What do you think of the newest releases from Bergamont? Is the E-Trailster for you or not?
