E-MTBs with capable suspension and at least 150 mm travel – that’s what we were looking for when we selected the three models that we’ve gathered together in this group test. The fact that the bike with the most interesting price is also fitted with the best components surprised us just as much as how diverse the riding characteristics of our candidates were. We take a brief look at the contenders here.

Diashow: Three E-Enduro bikes on Test - Cube, Scott, Bulls – higher, faster, further!

Die Uphill-Performance der Test-Kandidaten wurde auf technische anspruchsvollen Trails genau unter die Stollen … äh, unter die Lupe genommen.
Auf den Teststrecken im spanischen Aínsa folgten wir den Spuren mancher EWS-Stage und brachten das Material ordentlich an seine Grenzen.

E-Enduro bikes have a lot of demands made of them. Sufficient but not too much travel, capable kinematics, manageable geometry and solid technology. These are the key criteria that need to be considered with E-MTBs. We sent three models out into the field to test them on diverse trails. In Aínsa, Spain we tested downhill, trail and climbing performance on harsh, technical trails and found ourselves surprised how much difference a little Flipchip can make.

These are the contenders: Scott Genius eRide 900, Cube Stereo Hybrid 160, Bulls E-Core Evo (ltr)
# These are the contenders: Scott Genius eRide 900, Cube Stereo Hybrid 160, Bulls E-Core Evo (ltr) - Every one of these E-MTBs belongs in the E-Enduro category (at least 150 mm travel) and is fitted with premium Fox suspension. We tested these E-Mountainbikes on our home trails and in Ainsa, Spain.

Bulls E-Core EVO AM RS Di2

Bulls class E-MTBs with 150 mm travel under “All-Mountain” – we would call them E-Enduro bikes. The Bulls E-Core bristles with technical details and interesting solutions. With its TwinCore technology, Bulls has really innovated and gives you the option of doubling the battery capacity to 750 Wh with an additional battery. We think this is an innovative and interesting approach. You’ll have to read our full review to find out how this E-MTB handles the trails.

Cube Stereo Hybrid 160 Actionteam

This model is ready to race! This is exactly the spec that the Cube Actionteam would be dressed in for E-Bike races and likely also ride to the podium. In short, there are absolutely no unfulfilled wishes as regards the components. This E-Bike is fitted with anything that promises to improve performance. It’s not really possible to upgrade much. If you think that you’ll have to cut your children out of their inheritance or auction off your dad’s classic car, you’d be mistaken. This Bosch Performance CX motor equipped E-Mountainbike is the cheapest in our test.

Scott Genius eRide 900 tuned

This brightly colour E-Enduro enters the running with large 29” wheels. Powered by a Shimano Steps E8000 motor and equipped with Scott’s proprietary Twinlock technology, this E-Mountainbike makes a good first impression. The superb paint job draws attention from some distance away and up close, looks very good. The finishing underlines the dynamic shape of the frame and made us hot with anticipation before we finally got to ride this bike. The E-Bike impressively demonstrates the impact a Flipchip can have on the climbing abilities of a bike. You can find out more in our detailed test.
