To build the Apex, we have partnered with pioneering tech manufacturer Shimano to deliver a revolutionary pedal-assist system. Combining the Shimano E8000 Steps System and the enhanced toughed frame to give you an unmatched riding experience and allowing you to tackle any terrain on and off-road.
The Shimano STEPS motor is located in the central crank. This gives the ebike a low centre of gravity allowing you to ride it as naturally and effortlessly as it gets.
The Sony 504wh battery will give you the boost you need when you need it. This battery is positioned ergonomically to offer an unprecedented cycling experience and will offer you over 90 miles of fun-filled riding. (Distances vary depending on riding conditions).
As well as the advanced battery and the ground breaking motor, the Apex is fully fitted with state-of-the-art technology too. These features include: SR Suntour AION suspension, 10 Speed Shimano Deore gears, Nobby Nic tyres designed for all terrains by Schwalbe. You can find a full list of features and specifications below.
Wherever you ride this e-Mountain bike, you’ll be enjoying one of the most advanced pedalling experiences on the market. Don’t just take our word for it, book a test ride today and take it for a spin yourself.
