Three new e-bikes this week and all feature Bosch mid-drives. With high end mid-drives now giving pretty similar and very impressive performance the question for the manufacturers must increasingly be how they differentiate themselves from others.
Integration and connectivity are two areas based on the evidence of this week’s new e-bike releases – Scott have produced one of the most integrated looking e-bikes to date whilst Vaast have opted for a Unique suspension system and Evari stress hidden (or very well integrated) display and connectivity tech, with as many elements as possible hidden in a carbon monocoque frame.
In this week’s news:
- Scott’s integrated Patron eRide eMTB
- Vaast go Urban Adventure
- Carbon-framed Evari from the UK
- Bafang mid-drives
- Magnet speed hack from New Zealand’s NLS
- San Francisco Transit First Analyzed
