Engineered to unlock your potential
With its huge 750Wh battery and high power 85Nm Bosch Performance Line CX motor, our E-160 S ensures you're geared up for maximum enjoyment on the trails, wherever you go. We've also fitted exactly the componentry you need to inspire you to take your riding further: fully wireless and electronic SRAM AXS GX 1x12 gearing delivers instant shifting through all conditions, custom-tuned RockShox suspension keeps you connected and in control on the trail, and four-piston SRAM brakes deliver reliable power through all weathers.
Confidence on any terrain
Our Total Geometry approach gives the E-160 S 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 S 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’ geometry adjust (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 S 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, keeping room for a water bottle in the main frame, 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 S’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.
