Full Suspended / E1-X Carbon 8.0
At 2.8 kilograms, Steps 8000 is one of the lightest power units on the market. It ensures smooth, user-friendly power delivery, which can adapt to the characteristics of any routes and make the bike easier to handle even in the hardest stretches. Pedalling efficiency is enhanced by its narrow Q Factor (only 177 mm distance between crank rotation planes), the same as in the current XT. The motor covers hide the cable harnesses and fixing screws from view.
Designed for a shorter rear stay, to be in line with the geometry of a standard mountain bike, this motor delivers 70Nm of constant maximum torque and 250 Watt power.
The Shimano 8020 504Wh battery is fully integrated in the slanted tube and guarantees up to 100 kilometres' range after one charge cycle. It can be charged to 80% in less than two hours and to 100% in five hours, with a life cycle of 1,000 charges without any significant power loss. The system is controlled by a computer with LCD colour display, indicating the motor assistance level and the battery charge level.
