In this year's top model RELATE 9.0, we have exhausted the available installation space in the men's model and for the first time in one of our trekking e-bikes, we have installed the large Bosch Powertube with a huge 750Wh capacity. But first things first: the drive is provided by the latest generation Bosch Performance CX motor including Smart System. With its massive 85Nm of torque and up to 340% pedalling assistance, the CX easily takes you anywhere, with the four riding modes you determine the speed and can enjoy even the longest climb to the full. And it can last for quite a while, because the large 750Wh Powertube battery has plenty of capacity to take you to the next summit if you feel like exploring. All conceivable key and performance data can be found on the Kiox 300 display, which sits centrally in front of you next to the stem and is easy to read. The ultra-modern, hydroformed aluminium frame with battery integrated into the down tube forms the basic framework for our most modern e-trekking bike. The welded-on luggage rack blends beautifully into the elegant appearance and, if necessary, also takes a good load on board when you're going on a longer tour. With the Rock Shox Recon Gold, we ensure a completely safe and comfortable riding experience in every riding situation this season. Thanks to the generously dimensioned 100mm suspension travel and the voluminous Schwalbe Marathon E-Plus tyres, you can iron out every bump and glide along in a relaxed manner. And if there is a sudden surprise lurking around the bend, no problem: with the snappy Shimano XT brakes you can decelerate without batting an eyelid. To complete the noble overall package, our product managers have selected the Shimano XT 12-speed shifting system, the favourite of all bike lovers, so as not to compromise on the drivetrain and to guarantee crisp gear changes even in the long term. Elsewhere an expensive extra, here standard: an ergonomic cockpit with Natural Fit All Terrain grips, Busch & Müller lighting system and variable cockpit. Chapeau, the RELATE is waiting for you!
