We’ve been testing the Rotwild R.G+ Ultra 36. There’s undeniable downhill DNA with the 200 mm travel in the rear, but is this E-Freerider just for the descents? How does it handle trails? How does it handle the bike park? Isn’t 200 mm travel a little too much? We took a look and answered these questions for you. Read on for our full review.

Fox suspension for the hardest hits

With its mixed matt white and red paint job, the Rotwild R.G+ Ultra 36 looks good. The tube shaping is modern, and the finishing is the typically high quality we’ve come to expect from Rotwild. With this model, Rotwild took its E-Downhiller platform and swapped the Fox 40 for a 180mm travel Fox 36. No changes were made to the shock, so the R.G+ Ultra 36 keeps the huge 200 mm of rear travel.

The bike is equipped with everything you would expect from a gravity-oriented build. Shimano Saint does the braking, shifting is provided by a Shimano XT 11-speed drivetrain and the chassis rolls on the durable DT Swiss FR1950 wheels with narrow 2.4” Continental Kaiser tyres. That smaller tyre volume should make for a more direct feeling on the trail, with the grippy tread and precise nature of narrower tyres making for better steering.

Motor & Battery

Rotwild R.G+ Ultra 36 with Brose Drive-S
# Rotwild R.G+ Ultra 36 with Brose Drive-S

If it had a removable battery this E-Bike would be amazing!

The Rotwild R.G+ is equipped with the latest Brose Drive S motor. The premium unit provides silent support up to the 25km/h limit, above which it is completely decoupled and doesn’t add any drag to your pedalling. The latest generation also provides noticeably more torque when you need to accelerate. That’s perfect for corners, where it can provide a hefty push to get you back up to speed. Despite the power on offer, it never ends up feeling like an E-Motorbike. That ‘natural’ bike-like feeling is a key part of Brose’s design philosophy, that puts emphasis on gentle support rather than flinging you forward. That’s definitely been achieved with the Brose Drive S which has a very ‘natural’ feeling ride.

The IPU.500 CARBON downtube unit contains a 518 Wh battery
# The IPU.500 CARBON downtube unit contains a 518 Wh battery - sadly its a fixed battery that can't be swapped out easily

In the carbon downtube — Rotwild has dubbed it IPU.500 CARBON — you’ll find a 518 Wh battery. The downtube is nicely proportioned and doesn’t have the heft of some other E-Bikes on the market. But there’s a problem — the battery is non-removable and can only be replaced or swapped in the factory. If the 518 Wh capacity is enough for you that’s not a problem, but for anyone riding further this is a deal breaker. There’s also the issue of charging — you’ll always have to have your E-Bike close to a plug, rather than being able to remove a significantly more transportable battery. We beg the engineers at Rotwild: please design a new ‘IPU’ for this model that allows you to fit a removable battery. That can only improve the appeal, value and versatility of this machine. Lutz Scheffer already did something similar with the IPU.660.R, so it’s definitely possible.

The display is now a Marquardt Remote 4311 unit
# The display is now a Marquardt Remote 4311 unit - it's intuitive to use, legible and easy to get on with

It seems Rotwild might have listened to us regarding the display, as the puny and illegible Bloks display has been replaced with a Marquardt Remote 4311. The clear display provides all the information you need and is easy to read on the move. The mode selector buttons are easy to reach and the display includes Bluetooth and USB connectivity, and can connect via an app to your phone. A small joystick lets you navigate the menus to access all the information you need.

Real-world Range

Range test for the Rotwild R.G+ Ultra 36
# Range test for the Rotwild R.G+ Ultra 36 - 35,10 km | 815 metres vertical ascent | 1 h 29 min

35,10 km / 815 metres vertical ascent
1 h 29 min

Quoted figures for range tend to be on the optimistic side so we like to test bikes for ourselves, draining a whole battery and seeing how far the bike will go. For this test we managed 35.1 km and 815 metres of ascending, staying in the highest power setting throughout. Please note that these values in no way represent rigorous or normalised testing, instead they should be seen as ballpark figures. Using lower assistance modes increases the range significantly too.

You can find the exact details of our test ride with the Rotwild R.G+ Ultra 36 here.

On the Trail

Uphill

Uphill sections aren't a problem
# Uphill sections aren't a problem - but when the going gets really steep the motor does start to struggle a bit

Please no more narrow uphill sections!

Lower the saddle a bit, slide forwards and we can pedal our way leisurely up steep ramps. When the going gets really steep, the Brose Drive S does start to struggle a little, but for everything else it chugs along happily. The long chainstays (adjustable to 462.5mm) and the resulting wheelbase means the front wheel stays glued to the ground and only shows a hint of the front lifting on the absolute steepest inclines. The short 165mm e13 cranks make pedalling in choppy terrain possible with the minimum of pedal strikes.

Downhill

The Rotwild R.G+ Ultra 36 is a mini-downhiller really
# The Rotwild R.G+ Ultra 36 is a mini-downhiller really - it remains incredibly planted on the roughest sections of riding

This is the kind of terrain the Rotwild R.G+ Ultra 36 just wants to ride again and again
# This is the kind of terrain the Rotwild R.G+ Ultra 36 just wants to ride again and again

Make some space, we’re coming through!

Downhill is where the Rotwild R.G+ Ultra 36 is in its element. With a geometry that pro-downhill racers would be happy with, we can just let it roll, provided there’s enough space on the trail. The plush Fox 36 forks and Fox X2 shock swallow everything and encourage you to eek that extra bit of speed out of the bike. The slack 64.5-degree head angle gives this E-Bike a very planted feel and descending at high speeds feels calm and relaxed.

We’re incredibly impressed by the DT Swiss FR1950 wheels that have taken all the abuse we can dish out admirably. Doesn’t matter whether we hammer through rock gardens or run low tyre pressure for matted roots — the rims shrug off any impacts with a wry smile. The narrower 27.5×2.4” Continental Kaiser tyres provide great grip and steering precision. For experienced riders this setup is perfect, though may be slightly less forgiving of poor line choice.

Our only gripe is the 180mm disc rotor at the back. The Shimano Saint brakes still have plenty of power, but a larger rotor would just provide that extra bit more. We would always like to see 200mm rotors front and back on E-Bikes.

Like a rally car on a go-kart track

The things that makes the Rotwild so good for downhill, can lead to a little consternation whilst riding trails. The Rotwild R.G+ Ultra 36 needs a lot of space to be manoeuvred and can start to feel a little out of its depth on narrow and tight trails. The full potential of this E-Bike can’t be made use of, because just by its sheer dimensions it needs to be ridden slowly on tighter trails. It feels like taking a fully-fledged rally car to the go-kart track. Probably possible but not quite what it’s meant for. However, if you want to ride your trails as quickly as you can (and the corners aren’t too tight or narrow) then you’ll have a lot of fun aboard this E-Bike.

We noticed

63.5-degrees is an extremely slack head angle
# 63.5-degrees is an extremely slack head angle
A somewhat small 180 mm rotor at the back

  • Too slack – the 64.5 degree head angle is extremely slack. That contributes to a very stable ride but robs this E-bike of its agility. We’d like to see an adjustment option, for example with a flip chip or adjustable head set, to allow this to be tuned.
  • Small rotor – small disc rotors don’t belong on E-Bikes. We would like to see 200mm rotors on the rear as well.

eMTB-News Summary: Rotwild R.G+ Ultra 36

The Rotwild R.G+ Ultra 36 is an E-Bike with downhill DNA
# The Rotwild R.G+ Ultra 36 is an E-Bike with downhill DNA

The Rotwild R.G+ Ultra 36 is an E-Freerider with huge amounts of travel. The finishing is top-class and the handling, in terms of high speed stability, is more than class-leading. However, that’s also this eMTBs limiting factor — it’s not a very versatile machine for anything other than the steepest downhills and on normal trails it’s a handful to move around. But give this bike some space and give it the reins and it will take you down the mountain at top speed.

To improve its versatility, we would like to see adjustable geometry to allow the head angle to be steepened slightly. That would help speed up the handling a bit again. It’s admittedly hard to fault the Rotwild engineers for this though, as they set out to make a purebred E-Freerider and that’s what they’ve achieved here.

Pro
  • Great finishing
  • Smooth Brose Drive S

  • Fixed battery
  • Lacks agility on tighter trails

What do you think of the Rotwild R.G+ Ultra 36? Do you need 200 mm travel at the back?


About the test

Please expand for details

On our test runs we usually stay in the highest assistance mode and drain the battery completely at least once. We then publish our results on our Strava account.

Our loop has everything we need to test what our E-bikes are capable of:

  • Tight uphill trails with roots, rocks and loam
  • Flat trails with small climbing sections
  • Fast and flowing downhills
  • Long gravel trails up- and downhill

E-bikes are subjected to our route multiple times to allow us to draw our conclusions.

We tested the Rotwild R.G+ Ultra 36 here:

  • On the trails around Bamberg and Bad Kreuznach, Germany. The riding provides narrow and tight trails with technical rooty, rocky sections, steep and technical uphills as well as flowing downhills. In Spain the trails featured large rock garden and sandy terrain.

Am liebsten fahre ich Enduro, Downhill, Dirtjump, E-Enduro und Crosser – ich habe auf jedem Rad meine Gaudi. Primär geht´s mir um das schnelle Bergab fahren – ob im Bikepark oder auf selbst erklommenen Trails. Das E-Biken ist Neuland für mich aber macht mir ebenso mega Spaß. Unerreichten Spaßfaktor gibt´s für mich nur bei Rennen. Dabei findet man mich bei den meisten Enduro- und Downhill Massenstart Rennen. An jeder noch so kleinen Kante abziehen und das Rad in schräge Positionen zu manövrieren taugt mir ebenso ganz gut.
I like to ride Enduro, Downhill, Dirtjump, E-Enduro and Crosser – I have fun on every bike. My primary concern is to go fast on downhills – whether in the bike park or on self-climbed trails. E-biking is new for me, but it’s also super fun. Unmatched fun factor for me is only in races. You can find me at most enduro and downhill mass start races. Pulling off on every small edge and maneuvering the bike in oblique positions is just as good for me.
