Great bike for exploring the countryside.
Bosch powered and Shimano equipped cross/hybrid bike with low cross bar. It’s light at only 21.1Kg including battery.
Forme is a British Brand established in 2010 and are owned by the established UK bike distributor Moore Large. We are pleased to support a but of the UK bike market and we think the bikes are well thought out and offer good quality at an affordable price.
The motor on this bike is the Bosch Active Line. It’s lighter than the more powerful Performance Line models but can give up to 250% assistance. It’s compact and extremely reliable and there is no resistance when pedaling without any assistance. From the 300 Wh Bosch battery, Forme quote 25-62 mile range. This will obviously depend a great deal on many factors but would certainly be enough for those anticipating shorter journeys or access to more frequent recharging. The battery is easy and quick to charge, either on or off the bike, taking 2.5 hours from flat.
Components on the Bike
It’s most at home on the road, but with suspension front forks and Schwalbe Marathon tyres, it would definitely be happy on tracks and trails.
It is equipped with 9 speed Shimano derailleur gears and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes. In the comfort department you get ergonomic grips, a Forme Comfort Plus saddle and adjustable handlebar stem. The Bosch Intuvia display gives you all the information you need for your ride on a large, clear display in the centre of the handlebars.
The bike isn’t supplied with rack and mudguards, but we are happy to add those on request.
If you want comfort and practicality in a lightweight, low cost package, the Forme Peak Trail 2E could be just what you’re looking for.
