PEUGEOT unveils its new electric mountain bike range with in-frame battery: the eM02 PowerTube
The range of four PEUGEOT eM02 PowerTube electrically assisted mountain bikes have an elegant and modern design with a battery incorporated into the frame. Their versatility is assured, with a powerful motor and full suspension (front fork and rear shock absorber options available, depending on the model).
The entire range has been created around the new compact BOSCH 500 Wh PowerTube battery. Its in-frame position is optimal for the balance of the bike, which has a low centre of gravity. Battery removal by the top side of the down tube is easy while ensuring that it is shielded from projections. It has a range of up to 125 kilometres.
The BOSCH Performance CX motor gives eM02 PowerTube bikes instant and maximum power from the first pedal-push. It makes light work of the steepest slopes and bumpiest terrain. Climbs are as much fun as the descents on these bikes.
The shock absorbers developed by RockShox (depending on model) make it easier to get over obstacles, with 160 mm of travel. The 27.5 inch wheels with wide tyres are effective on all terrain. The Shimano XT brakes (depending on model) ensure optimal safety.
