A QUICK OVERVIEW OF THE COMPETITION

This year’s eMTB Shootout was a doozy! Our crew traveled from far and wide to the awesome and eBike-friendly destination of Knoxville, Tennessee to put over a dozen pedal assist electric mountain bikes to the test. We spent a lot of time riding everything from beautiful flow trails in Baker Creek Preserve to challenging the bikes and our bodies at Windrock Bike Park’s gnarly downhill mountain bike trails. Be sure to subscribe to the channel as we’ll be dropping daily review videos in build up to our grand finale episode where we pick our favorite eBikes of the year.

We’d like to thank Knoxville, Tennessee for hosting us and having such awesome trails and food!

Also, this project would not be possible without the gracious support of our sponsors, so please be sure to thank and support them as well.
