The Mid-Drive Advantage
Mid-Drive Systems are excellent for out-putting big amounts of torque, applicable for everyday commuting, climbing hills and powering through unfavourable terrain. Instead of individually powering the front or rear wheel through a single-speed conventional hub motor, the highly acclaimed Bafang MAX-01 allows you to take advantage of the bike’s drivetrain, and sends power through the gearing to efficiently amplify your power seamlessly.
• More predictable control and speed
• Equal Weight Distribution (Fitted in the middle)
• Better power efficiency
Lithium-Ion Battery with Panasonic Cells
A great electric bike needs a great battery to work. The E-Spresso i8 comes with a big 36v 2200mAh Panasonic cell to keep you going and going. Safety tested to strict international standards and comes with intelligent protection board for longevity and durability.
Be in Control
With a large backlit Bafang LCD Display and built-in controller, you’ll be able to see your speed, trip stats (max speed, average speed, trip total and odometer), current power assist & battery charge. Cycle through 5 levels of power assist, with higher numbers providing more motor assistance during pedalling.
Superior Stopping Power
Experience the unparalleled stopping power of hydraulic disc brakes, capable of bringing you safely to a halt in any conditions. Hydraulic disc brakes are more reliable than their mechanical counterparts and afford riders greater control with less effort required.
Shimano Nexus Internal Hub
Enjoy a consistently smooth ride with the 8 Speed Shimano Nexus Internal Hub gear. Reduced maintenance is a trademark of Shimano Nexus hub gearing, with gears protected from external debris. The result is a greatly reduced need for maintenance and cleaning of the drivetrain.
Stay comfortable even through the bumps and jostles of uneven roads with Suntour Nex Suspension Forks. The Lockout feature allows you to disable the suspension with the twist of a dial when shock absorption is not a priority.
Accessible and Manoeuvrable
The E-Spresso i8’s Low-Step-Through Lightweight alloy frame is simple to both control on the road, and mount/dismount.
Practical and Convenient
A range of additional features make the E-Spresso i8 ideal for riding in any situation including front and rear PVC mudguards and an alloy rear rack, perfect for attaching bags on long rides.
