First Look: Scott 2016 Electric Mountain Bikes

By Martin Brown on October 26, 2015

We are pleased to announce details of the new 2016 Scott eBike range coming to the UK shores. Some exciting new electric mountain bike models with an expanded range for 2016.

Due to the success of the 2015 range, we have decided to stock in more models for 2016 with a new expanded range of eMTB’s consisting of full suspension, hardtail & different wheel sizes.

What’s new?

Scott are fairly new to the eBike game, we say that, they have been around in the eBike world for a few years now.. But for 2016 the range is refined and incorporates the new exciting Bosch Performance CX drive with more torque and power than ever before.

The system is predominantly designed for mountain biking and also includes a larger capacity 500Wh battery pack for more extended trips in the saddle. You can read more on the new Bosch system in another article here.

More models?

We will be offering the full range of eMTB’s, this includes a mix of 2 27.5″ hardtails & 2 29″ variants. Also on top of the standard 2 Scott Spark (120mm travel) full susser’s we will be offering 2 larger travel 29″ version and also 2 new 27.5+ versions!

How to navigate the range?

It’s fairly easy to navigate the new 2016 Scott electric bike range, we break it down as follows:

The E-: Of course refers to the fact that it’s an electric assisted mountain bike!

Every eBike has 2 spec grades built on the same frame, wheel size and electrical system.
10: means higher spec, lighter & more durable components.
20: means base model components, built to be well equipped but more affordable.

E-Genius: means larger (140-150mm) travel full suspension eBike.
E-Spark: means smaller travel (120mm) full suspension eBike.
E-Aspect: means that it is a hardtail electric bike (without rear suspension).

 

Anyway enough gassing, let’s get on with the models on offer! Starting from the top down:

Please Note: Although all hardtails are pictured above with the standard Bosch performance motor they will arrive spec’d with new Bosch Performance CX drive unit for 2016.


What do we think?

The new Scott eBike range looks really good for 2016. We have decided to expand on the model range to include the bigger travel suspension bikes.

Although we will be stocking both the 27.5″ & 29″ entry level hardtail models, these will be to run alongside the higher spec ones to make it easy for you to see the differences. Our money is still on the higher spec models, considering the small price difference, the spec is justified and in our mind – is a no brainer.

It’s also nice to have the larger travel, bigger wheel 29″ suspension bikes. This really closes a gap in our range for those hardcore 29’er boys looking for a fully spec’d eMTB.

One of the models we think will be most popular is the new E-Genius 710 PLUS bikes, the 27.5″ wheels combined with the wider tyre will offer superior levels of grip and ultimately be the middle ground between a fat bike and practical trail conditions.

When can I get one?

Is exactly the same question we are thinking!. All models are available to pre order right now on our website. The hardtails come in around November time, with the full suspension models following a little later on. Some even before xmas!
