Light AM/enduro ultimate list


Jul 30, 2020
Hi guys, I've compiled a list of lightweight full-suspension Trail/AM/Enduro e-bikes with travel between 140mm (RIP Scott Lumen, BMC Fourstroke AMP LT and Rotwild R.X275) and 180mm. These bikes weigh under 20kg, with some exceptions at 21kg. I've only included the top-of-the-line models. They should all be carbon except for the Nicolai and Orange models, which are aluminum. With the exception of the Rise, I've (temporarily?) excluded aluminum versions of other bikes for being too heavy, like the Transition Relay Alloy. The list is divided by motor type.

The light segment is recent: this is a provisional list that is expected to grow. Complicating matters, there are also full-power sub-20kg models. I've included a couple. Once upon a time there was the Crafty Carbon RR SL. Other recent e-bikes might make the list, but I couldn't find their weights online, for example, the Sonic EVO EN SL Daytona (150mm/160mm) might be light. Please add any missing light e-bikes in the comments, considering the criteria above, and point out any errors or inaccuracies, thanks!
