Our brand new RELATE 9.0 is the top version of the series and and that’s how it's presented too: The base is our current, hydroformed aluminum frame with 625 Wh battery integrated into the down tube and the welded-on rack, which fits beautifully into the elegant look and absorbs a proper payload if needed. The powerful Bosch CX motor with its 85 Nm torque and up to 340 percent pedal assist take care of the drive, which you can monitor from the ultra-modern Nyon display that also performs navigation services if desired. You can adjust the motor from the handlebar in four modes. From Eco for long trips covering a lot of miles to Turbo for maximum mountain sprints, you’ll always find the right assist level. The sublime Rock Shox Recon Gold suspension fork with its 100 mm travel provides tremendous comfort on tour, and it’s supported by Schwalbe’s Marathon E-Plus classic tires with plenty of volume. To make sure no mountain is too steep, we added the Shimano XT 12-speed gear system to the Relate, which offers the right gear system in any situation with its enormous range. This is paired with the grippy Shimano XT brake, which easily controls deceleration in fine increments, even on the steepest gradients. Since the motor and equipment easily allow for long tours and trips, we equipped the contact points that are crucial for comfort with ultra-comfortable products from the ergonomic specialists at ERGON. The ST10 saddle and the GP10 grips, for example, succeed in preventing pain and making extended tours a pleasure. Should you ever end up in the dark, you’ll always find the right way with the powerful IQ XS lighting system. Find your adventure, and your RELATE will be there.
