We had the Conway eMT 627MX in for testing. You can find it all – a stiff aluminium frame, a powerful Shimano Steps E8000 motor and mismatched wheel sizes just like a motorbike. But what’s it capable of out in the wild? Does this ride light your fire or does this bike shoot blanks? We pushed the Conway eMT 627MX to the edge to find out.

Conway eMT 627MX – In brief

The Conway eMT 627MX is an ambitious creation

The Conway eMT 627MX had already piqued our interest when we saw it at Eurobike 2017. The “MX” letters, slyly integrated into the name, provide some clues about the roots of this bike and what inspired its design. Motocross – that’s where the idea to use two different wheel sizes came from. At the front a narrow 29” wheel gives good rolling and steering characteristics, whilst out back a fat 27.5” wheel shod in plus rubber trundles over everything in its path.

Equipped with a 140mm RockShox Revelation RC, the cockpit is at the perfect height. The wide bars handle nicely, and Shimano XT gears take care of shifting without any complaints. Braking is managed by Magura MT5 brakes with 200/180 mm rotors front and rear. The frame itself is finished nicely and makes a very good overall impression. However, it’s hard to overlook just how blue it is. You’ll have to like that colour because there’s no hiding away from it.

The chassis surges forward with a powerful push of the Shimano motor

The Shimano Steps E8000 is likely in second place in terms of prevalence in the market at the moment. While it performed well before, since the last firmware update it’s been improved even more with excellent, effective and efficient power delivery and easily used, ergonomic controls. The Conway eMT 627MX makes full use of this power unit and races away when you turn on Boost mode. The motor soldiers heroically on and doesn’t falter even on the steeper inclines. No more than a quiet hum from the unit will accompany you during your riding – definitely nothing that is unpleasant or particularly loud.

Real-world range

Reichweite
# Reichweite

31.8 km /690 metres vertical ascent

1 h 24 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 31.8km and 690 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.

Here are the exact details of our test ride.

On the Trail

Uphill

eBike-6159
# eBike-6159

… until we clip our pedals.

The agile Conway eMT 627MX isn’t afraid of any slopes. It doesn’t matter how steep it may be, this eMTB will find a way up. The Shimano Steps E8000 motor pushes us along and helps multiply our efforts on the way up. The central position makes us feel light on our wheels and any slope seems manageable. There’s just one limitation: the trails can’t be too rough. Unfortunately, Conway decided to spec 175mm crank here and more often than not a race to the top of hill is quickly brought to a halt by the inopportune impact of pedal against rock. Attached to a slightly creaky (but secure) saddle clamp, the narrow saddle looks very nice but seems to transfer any impact force directly to your sit bones. It’s especially on a E-Hardtail that this starts to get a little uncomfortable.

Downhill

eBike-6216
# eBike-6216

Bombing it down to the base of the valley.

Some skill is required to pilot an E-Hardtail on downhills. Impacts at the rear are transferred directly to the rider when the going gets rough. Thanks to the 780 mm bars, capable RockShox Revelation fork and the slack 65.6-degree head angle the Conway eMT 627MX maintains its composure and stays on course. The two different wheel sizes have a noticeably positive effect on handling. The large front wheel provides precise steering over rough terrain whilst the 27.5” plus-tyred rear wheel helps the Conway roll smoothly over obstacles. Being an E-Hardtail, it still requires relatively active riding and a degree of fitness to manoeuvre the bike.

The Magura MT5 brakes have what we feel are excessively large brake levers – it’s almost as though we’re dealing with a 2.5+ finger lever here. They do have very good stopping power though. The front is fitted with a 200 mm rotor and we’d like to see the same at the rear instead of the 180 mm rotor as it comes from the factory.

Hard and fast – an exhilarating ride!

This E-Bike feels right at home on the trails. The playful geometry lets you rail the corners and turn through tight corners with ease. The soft Addix compound of the 29” Schwalbe Hans Dampf provides ample grip and keeps you in control. The powerful motor propels you up small slopes and helps you maintain a rapid clip of speed. It is an admittedly bumpy pleasure to race along the trails, but it is a pleasure nonetheless!

We noticed

  • 175 mm cranks – we would like to see much shorter cranks fitted. A 160 mm crank would improve ground clearance and avoid pedal strike.
  • Uncomfortable saddle – the Contec NeoSport saddle is too narrow to support us properly and seems to transport any impact directly to our sit bones.
175 mm long cranks meant we had to contend with quite a lot of pedal strike

eMTB-News Summary: Conway eMT 627MX

The Conway eMT 627MX is a E-Hardtail with playful and agile handling that’s simply good fun to ride on the trails. The stiff frame is driven effectively by the powerful Shimano Steps E8000 motor, easily getting this E-Bike up any slope. Shorter cranks would serve it well by improving its climbing on rougher uphill trails though.

The mix of 29” and 27.5”+ front and rear makes sense to us and combines the best of both worlds. Precise steering at the front with grip and better puncture resistance at the back – what more do you need? If you’ve already got an E-Bike in your garage and are looking for your n+1 E-Bike, you have a great candidate with the Conway eMT 627MX.

  • Loud colour scheme
  • 29” front wheel and 27.5”+ rear wheel

About the Test

Please expand for test 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 Conway eMT 627MX here:

  • Bamberg and Bad Kreuznach in Germany. The riding provides narrow and tight trails with technical rooty, rocky sections, steep and technical uphills as well as flowing downhills.

I ride everything: E-Enduro, E-Trailbikes, hardtails, downhill, road – I enjoy it all, whether it’s E-assisted or not. I’ll admit that I do quite like having a motor on the uphills though. There’s lots to love about flowing trails; natural or built. The only thing I hate – switchbacks.
