Which motor for your ebike?

Caught up with Martin from e-bikeshop and talked a bit about the current and future motor technology for EMTB’s.

  1. Think Bosch are leaders at mo with motors good build and excellent warranty policy PLUS German engineering
  2. Are all the Bosch motors noisy though? I’ve just watched Rob’s test of the Cube Stereo Hybrid and it sounded like a diving Stuka!

    OK, I’ll bite.

    Sabre Tooth Tigers aren’t as long in the tooth as the Bosch motor. It’s noisy, draggy and has a serious design flaw. Yes, the warranty is good, but Bosch deserve the same panning that Spesh are getting over the 2019 Levo.

    The Brose motor is quieter, lighter, more powerful and disengages when not in use. PLUS German engineering… ;)

  4. Its hair splitting, they are all good motors with different pros and cons. Personally I expect an e bike motor to make a noise which thankfully they all do when spun up to 750 watts
