Big improvement on their old offering, but only 504wh? Wouldnt bother me personally but seems a bizarre choice, especially as pricing wise they aren't the greatest value, but then again maybe they are with recent price increase taken into account? Who knows :unsure:

What’s happening to e-Bike prices?

That aside, I quite like the look of the bike, the battery size is plenty for me as well, and more bikes will hopefully increase competition etc.

Available late April.

23.9kg for the ELITE in Size Small.

24.05kg :) for the Pro in Small.

24.2kg for the base model with the just don't do it E7000 motor.

"Our small and medium bikes come with mixed wheel size, while the large and extra large utilise the full 29er setup."

2kg more than my E-Sommett, even with same size battery and the lighter EP8 - still waiting for someone to bring out a bike that isn't a tanker truck and doesn't cost 10k!

...and at the same time Saracen is moving to a direct-to-consumer model. The trend continues...

It's just logic.

The super light bikes came along and you paid more for a smaller motor and smaller battery.

So the Full Fats have to fight back, they have a bigger motor and bigger battery, so should cost more ! :ROFLMAO:

Rotwild R.X375 Ultra 18.2 kg and only €11,500 - in fairness, it's lightweight so you pay more, but comes with a full size motor, so you have to pay more for that too. +€750 for a second external battery to double range.

Plus it has @Rob Rides EMTB dream of a single button to release the battery :

When I saw Saracen in the thread title I initially thought that we might have a more affordable option, unfortunately not though.

Decent looking bike though, in a familiar kind of way, I wouldn't mind the smaller internal battery if they offered a range extender as an option.
