WE DON’T PARTY UNTIL THE RACE IS OVER. SO WE TOOK OUR TIME TO DESIGN AN E-MTB THE WAY A YETI E-MTB HAS TO BE DESIGNED: READY TO TOE THE LINE AT EWS-E RACES.MEET THE 160E: THE WORLD’S FIRST RACE SPECIFIC E-MTB.
With the right suspension an e-MTB can do things a pedal bike can’t, taking you further, faster. Sixfinity delivers a suspension design that is expertly tuned for the added weight, speed and demands of an e-MTB.
EFFICIENCY AND TRACTION. OPTIMIZED.
Pedaling an e-MTB isn’t relegated to the low-end gear ranges. Across the entire cassette, there is a very small change in anti-squat (9%) in the pedal zone. Now, suspension performs consistently and predictably, regardless of gear choice. Bottom line: use the power efficiently in every single gear.
TRACTION AND COMPOSURE. ACHIEVED.
Due to the greater mass of an e-MTB, we reduced the anti-rise magnitude to 65%. Anti-rise remains consistent across the entire travel range, striking a balance for the unique demands of the added weight and power of an e-MTB.
COMPOSED, PLANTED, WICKEDLY FAST.
More trails. More laps. More of what you love. Sure, any e-MTB technically delivers “more”. More for the 160E is added composure, speed and agility. See also personal bests, wins, and championships.
FAST. BEYOND THE POWER.
The 25Km/h motor limit can be easily outpaced by racers. As a foundational design requirement, the 160E continues to elevate its performance and composure, the faster you go. So much so, Jared Graves has a new favorite bike.
TUNABLE LEVERAGE RATE.
Every track is different. Every racer has their ride preferences. Sixfinity has an adjustable leverage rate progression that provides a dynamic range of suspension feel. All while preserving geometry, anti-squat and anti-rise characteristics, and only a minute impact to wheel travel at +/-2mm.
