The 2019 Cannondale Moterra is here, with a new timeless design and an integrated battery. We’ve got an overview of the new models for 2019 here.

When Cannondale introduced the Moterra in 2016 there were mixed opinions about the company’s typically maverick design. From “Wow that’s awesome” to “Erggh, that’s awful”, there were lots of differing opinions. In reality, the Cannondale Moterra always performed extremely well, with capable suspension kinematics, and a low centre of gravity that only served to improve handling. It was just the looks that were unique and distinctive out on the trail.

Today, Cannondale has announced the next stage in the evolution of this E-Mountainbike, with the NEO moniker signifying the update. The design of the frame has been toned down a little, becoming more “consumer friendly” and integrating the battery neatly into the downtube. Cannondale has stayed true to the Bosch motor of the previous model, with the Performance CX model powered by a PowerPack 500 battery.

The design places particular emphasis on agile and nimble handling. The 457mm chainstays of the Cannondale Moterra NEO are shorter than many other competitors that also use the Bosch Performance CX motor. That results in a lively ride and we think this E-Bike could be a cornering demon. Of course, we’ll have to see whether that plays out in reality with a more in-depth test.

The unique battery configuration of the previous Moterra is likely fresh on the minds of many. This new design places stock in a sleeker look. The fully integrated Bosch battery can be easily removed from the base of the downtube and results in a more conventional and less polarising look than the predecessor. All the characteristics that make this a true Cannondale are still there though. The carbon linkage as well as the construction of the rear-end remains typically Cannondale. Paint and finishing are, as is to be expected, top quality.

Opinion @eMTB-News.de

The redesign of the Moterra is a Cannondale coup. The updated design is fresh and the paint job pops, though the overall shape is a little more “consumer friendly” than the predecessor. It will be interesting to see how this E-Bike handles, because those short chainstays could result in even more fun over the previous generation. We’re looking forward to a thorough test.

Cannondale has done a lot of work on integration and looks with this update, and as a result should enjoy a growing fan base for the Moterra range.

What do you think of the new Cannondale Moterra NEO? Looks ready to rock, right?
