Cannondale makes their first foray into the full-suspension e-bike segment with the Cannondale Moterra E-MTB. It is designed around Bosch electronics and built with numerous integrated features, this electric pedal-assist mountain bike makes quick work of climbing up rugged trails. The Cannondale Moterra E-MTB is an electric pedal-assist bike that requires the user to pedal and shift gears as on any bicycle but, as soon as you step on the pedals the Bosch 250W drive unit with 500W battery kicks in to give you a powerful boost. Cannondale has designed the Moterra E-MTB with wide 27.5″x2.8″ tires for superior grip in any type of trail condition. A RockShox Yari fork with 130mm of travel and rear RockShox Monarch shock also with 130mm of travel smooths out the trail for easy handling even over rocky patches.
The bike’s frame is made from SmartForm C1 alloy, creating a design that not only accommodates the battery but also leaves plenty of room for water bottles while retaining a short, back end of the bike. An offset from chainring and wide ECS-TC pivot thru-axle give the bike added stiffness for efficient energy use and tight handling. Once you hit turbo mode, the climbs stand no chance as you zoom up trails with the pedal assist. The drivetrain features a Shimano XT Cassette with an 11-42T ratio, with a smooth running chain and seamless shifts. When it come times to descend, the bike’s fat tires, full-suspension, and powerful Shimano SLX hydraulic brakes all work in combination to smooth out the trail and give you total control for fast, fun descent. The Cannondale Moterra E-MTB will let anyone enjoy the thrill of charging he mountains with less effort and more fun.
The Cannondale Moterra E-MTB is available in four sizes, Small – X-Large. It is available in the color Stealth Grey with Hazard Orange and Anthracite Grey accents.
