The ZR TEAM HYBRID 9.0 CX 500 is our flagship this year and impresses with high quality parts and agile handling. Like with its sister models, we are setting new standards in this price segment with the brand new, fourth generation Bosch Performance CX motor. More lightweight, more compact, quieter and a more dynamic power development compared to the previous model are the key features here. With a 250 watt output, up to 85 Nm torque and 340% support, you’re bursting with performance. The powerful 500 Wh power pack sits semi-integrated and centrally positioned in the lower frame triangle and its low center of ensures a harmonious driving behavior. The award-winning Rock Shox Recon Silver RL Air works on the front, which can be perfectly adapted to your weight and riding style with a couple of simple steps - now you can enjoy fatigue-free riding, even off road. For the gear system, we are relying on a high quality mix of Shimano’s DEORE and XT series: 12 gears and a large 10-51 tooth cassette offer an unfathomably large range with a simultaneously low weight and crisp shifting performance. For the contact points with the bike, we use the ergonomic GA30 grips from Ergon as well as the sporty Selle Italia X1 saddle. Actually all that’s missing is a standard braking system that safely and quickly brings you to a standstill again: with 4 pistons on the front and 2 pistons on the rear, the Shimano BR-MT420/MT410 combination does its job with gusto and will give you that added security in any dicey situation. For € 2,529, you get a smartly equipped and modern E-MTB with above-average equipment - let the adventure begin!
