The ultimate E-160
Powerful, agile and balanced, the E-160 RSX is the ultimate all-rounder – not just a jack of all trades, but a master. Whether you’re thrashing the hills, racing e-enduro between the tapes or having a blast on back-country singletrack, E-160 RSX is engineered to give you the confidence to push the envelope, everywhere.
– Optimised low centre of gravity gives you exceptional handling.

– Multi-butted 6061 T-6 aluminium hydroformed frame is built to last.
– Bosch Performance CX 85Nm motor (600W peak power) for class-leading performance and reliability.
– 750Wh battery gives you the range to ride further for longer.
– 29er wheels front and rear for balanced handling.
Ready to smash your PB
When you feel good, you ride your best. So for the E-160 RSX we’ve dressed the bike with the finest, trail-proven parts for perfect grip, feedback, and control to help do just that: SRAM GX T-Type AXS 1x12 wireless electronic gearing, DT Swiss wheels, Maxxis tyres, Whyte custom-tuned Fox Performance Elite suspension, SRAM Code RSX brakes, Crankbrothers Highline dropper post, and more – all combined and tuned with the singular focus of inspiring your best, every ride.
Confidence on any terrain
Our Total Geometry approach gives the E-160 RSX a generous reach, reassuring head angle and short offset fork, making it the most confidence-inspiring, nimble e-bike we’ve ever made. We’ve also given the E-160 RSX a rock-bottom centre of gravity by optimising the distribution of the battery and motor mass within the chassis. So you can expect exceptional cornering agility and a planted feel on even the choppiest terrain. You can also adjust the bike's geometry using its Shape.It Link ‘flip-chip’ (switchable from the stock 'High' setting to 'Low' to slacken the bike out by 0.6 degrees and lower the bottom bracket by 8mm) for even more gravity-focused handling.
Engineered for life
We’ve engineered the E-160 RSX not just to perform today but for every day you want to ride it – for years to come. Everything from making the day-to-day tasks simple and easy – like hassle-free battery installation/removal and in-the-bike-charging – to standing behind you for the long haul with the best rider support out there, four-year extended frame warranty and our lifetime warranty on bearings for total peace of mind. Because when a bike is this good you’ll want to ride it as much as possible.
With the Bosch Smart System – which links up the E-160 RSX’s bar-mounted LED Remote, battery and motor via the companion 'eBike Flow' app – you can have even more information at your fingertips to manage, tailor and personalise your bike just how you want: tune the motor support levels; keep track of your bike’s performance and battery consumption; plan and navigate routes; keep your software up to date. And much, much more.
