Our all-new lightweight eMTB range blends the very best natural mountain bike handling and ride feel with the power and capability of ‘full-fat’ eMTBs.
Engineered for riders who want a lighter and more familiar ‘mountain bike’ ride experience than full-fat eMTBs offer, E-Lyte is designed to deliver zero compromises wherever your trail takes you: the singletrack, the all-day epic, the home trail hot laps, the drop-ins, the descents, the tech and the climbs back out.
LIGHTWEIGHT WITHOUT THE COMPROMISE
Comprising of three models – the E-Lyte 140 Works, E-Lyte 150 Works, and the E-Lyte 150 RSX – the range includes our lightest ever electric mountain bike, the E-Lyte 140 Works, which weighs just 16.4kg (size M) and delivers uncompromised XC/trail performance together with 650Wh of combined battery capacity.
The beating heart of every E-Lyte is an all-new, lightweight yet strong carbon fibre chassis that carefully packages Bosch’s light and powerful Performance Line SX mid-torque (55Nm), full power (600W) motor and 400Wh internal battery seamlessly so you can fly under the radar as stealthily as you’ll fly down the trails.
EXCEPTIONAL HANDLING, HOWEVER YOU RIDE
We’ve carefully positioned the mass of the Bosch PowerMore 250Wh range extender – included with both Works bikes as standard – as low in the frame as possible to optimize the bike’s center of gravity and deliver an exceptional handling bike, however you want to ride: with the range extender on for longer rides out in the hills, or without for lapping your local trails.
Similarly, without the PowerMore in place, you can run a full 750ml water bottle in the same rock-bottom low position, using the supplied bottle cage mount, for the same handling win.
NATURAL RIDE RESPONSE
With its sensitive and reactive response, the new Bosch Performance Line SX motor delivers a more natural ride experience than the full-fat Performance Line CX motor, rewarding higher pedalling cadences and rider effort as it delivers up to 340% support and 600W of peak power. This means it requires you to pedal at higher cadences (around 100-105rpm) to unlock its higher support and peak power but, once there, it will sustain that support even up steep and technical climbs. The motor’s narrower 160mm Q-factor is also more akin to mechanical (analogue) bikes, too.
TRAIL PROVEN PARTS
The category four trail/enduro 150 Works trail/enduro bike weighs 19.2kg (size M) and the similar RSX at 18.9kg (size M). Despite these low weights, every E-Lyte comes complete with a fully trail-proven spec, including reinforced tyres, four-pot brakes, full-length dropper posts, wide handlebars and appropriate forks, so there’s no need to compromise on the way you ride.
