Is this the nicest looking eMTB to date?
Mondraker have revealed details and pics of their new e-Prime Stealth Carbon RR+ deluxe eMTB and it’s one of the first electric mountain bikes that could lay claim to being pretty.
The weight is claimed to be 18.8kg (41.4lb) which is certainly one of the lightest eMTBs that we’ve seen to date.
The bike’s announcement comes with the claims of enabling riders to “reach higher peaks, climb faster with less effort and go further”. Which is all standard fanfare for eMTBs of late. But there’s no other eMTB quite as blingy as the Stealth Carbon RR+!
This isn’t the first year that Mondraker have made eMTBs, the e-Prime Stealth Carbon RR+ heads up a range of Mondraker’s second generation of eMTBs. This new RR+ offering however is a seriously high-end machine designed without much of an eye on budget constraints.
There are four different models of e-Prime MTBs going to be available, each in a carbon guise and an aluminium guise.
Forward Geometry included
All of Mondraker’s e-Prime bikes will sport their Forward Geometry sizing. Forward Geometry is essentially a significantly lengthy top tube allied to a very short stem. e-Prime bikes will all come with 30mm ‘FG30’ stems as standard.
The Stealth Carbon RR+ is carbon fibre hardtail that sports 27.5+ plus tyres (in this case Maxxis Ikon and Rekon 27.5 x 2.8). Mondraker have opted for the Plus tyre format for “safety, grip and comfort”. The internal width of the rims is 35mm.
The carbon layup combined with areas such as the “flexy” flat profile seat stays is again meant to offer increased levels of comfort for a hardtail.
The motor is from Bosch whoa re rapidly becoming the de-facto choice for quality e-bike motors. The Bosch Performance CX motor on the Stealth Carbon RR+ offers a claimed 75nm of torque and comes with a 500w/h battery mounted on the down tube.
The motor is housed in an integrated engine protector.
There are four assist modes available: Eco (50% assist), Tour (120%), SPort (210% and Turbo (300%). The motor is controlled by a handlebar mounted unit called the Intuvia Performance bar display. This is where you select you assist-level and it’s also where your battery life, range and other information is displayed.
