It’s time to get electric! We’re starting the rollout of electric bikes this week with three models for you. The brand-new El Kahuna takes cues from the Honzo and the revered Kahuna. It’s the perfect way to dip your toe into the electric mountain bike world. Also returning is the Remote 160—the electric mountain bike that received accolades from a ton of media outlets in 2019. Last but not least, is the Splice E–the perfect companion for those rides that take you on the backwoods paths, the long way to the grocery store, or cruising through the park. Splice up your commute with this fun, easy-t0-ride electric bike!
The Remote 160 brings the power of an e-MTB to the masses. After a successful 2020, it’s back and better than ever. Shimano’s E7000 motor with 504 Wh battery means bigger days than ever before. Process-derived geometry provides playful handling on the descents. A 160mm RockShox Zeb Charger R Debonair fork and RockShox Super Deluxe Select rear shock provide the perfect amount of squish. E-MTB-specific SRAM Guide RE brakes with 200mm rotors slow you down when you need. Running Maxxis Minion 27.5x2.8” tires give you excellent traction over the roughest terrain.
The Kahuna is one of our best-selling hardtails. People love its simplicity and practicality. We brought that ethos to the El Kahuna and built a bike that was multipurpose—capable of riding the local singletrack for hours on end, and still have enough battery to go get the groceries on the way home. A Shimano E6100 pedal-assist motor is powered by a semi-integrated 504 Wh battery. A 100mm Suntour XCR 34 Air fork provides just the right amount of suspension to absorb smaller hits on the trail. Shimano Deore brakes provide reliable stopping power. WTB ST i27 TCS 2.0 29” rims are wrapped with super grippy WTB Trail Boss 2.25” tires making the El Kahuna the perfect all-rounder.
The Splice-E is back and better than ever. A redesigned frame holds a semi-integrated battery for a Shimano E6100 motor. The display provides an easy-to-read screen with simple controls. The Splice-E is one smooth ride thanks to its Suntour NCX D LO fork with 63mm of travel which means those bumps in the road, rocks on the path, and pesky cracks in the sidewalk will feel like nothing as you cruise on by. Complete with fenders, Busch & Müller lights, and a kickstand, the Splice-E is ready for your campground cruises, neighborhood pub crawls, or a long day on your favorite adventure ride!
