HFS-hydroforming Prolite 66 triple butted aluminium frame with aggressive enduro geometry and 160 mm rear wheel travel – Shimano STePS E8000 motor allows for short chain stays delivering agility. ‘Smart Entry’ cable routing for rattle free running. Casting motor bracket creates an integrated appearance of the motor into the frame as well as provides an extremely strong connection between frame and motor.
A trunnion mount shock gives our frame designers more flexibility by using a shorter shock with increased stroke. Combined with the ball bearing bushing of the upper mount, shock sensitivity is increased, and the suspension performance can be perfectly tuned.
‘Boost’ standard front & rear. The extra 6 mm rear hub and 10 mm front hub spacing in comparison with conventional hubs brings the width up to 148 mm / 110 mm and gives the eONE-SIXTY wheels noticeably more stiffness and strength.
The geometry of our performance bike says it all: 440 mm reach (Size M), 439 mm short chain stays, 75° seat and 66.5° head angle – you simply can’t squeeze more fun into an E-full suspension.
Loved by riders but also by the press. Since its introduction, the eONE-SIXTY has won multiple tests and awards and the stream of great results has not yet come to an end. DIRT adds the eONE-SIXTY to the infamous DIRT 100 the second year running and E-MOUNTAINBIKE awards the eONE-SIXTY 800 with another test win.
650B+ wheels featuring 35-40 mm wide inner width rims and 2.8" tyres which are hugely capable when the going gets rough but also offer loads and loads of up-hill traction, cornering grip, puncture resistance and cushioning, without being draggy or sluggish. Most models offer tubeless ready rims and tyre configurations making a conversion to tubeless incredibly straightforward.
Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent rattling when the trails and roads get rough. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with Di2, hydraulic hoses, brake cable and gear cable housings etc.
