KTM Racing Hardtail
Part of KTM’s 2018 hardtail range of dependable, speedy bikes, focussing on integrating the extraordinary power of Bosch’s Performance Line CX motor into a frame developed to be lighter and stronger.
The Bosch Performance Line CX is developed to match the ambitions of the most demanding e-biker. Highly responsive, with a maximum torque of 75Nm, the motor flattens off road terrain and the steepest hills. The maximum drive of the motor returns 300% of your input, granting a huge boost to your speed and uphill power, while the sporty start behaviour keeps it controllable and allows for easy setting off even when starting on an incline. The 400wh battery keeps the bike light, with plenty of power capacity to carry you for any day’s ride.
The Force 271 is equipped with Smart Sam tyres. These tyres are an outstanding development, providing a balanced and modern tread, with outer lugs for greater off road grip and a central rib for comfortable rolling. The tyres are suitable for all conditions, fast on smooth terrain and sturdy off road.
KTM have developed a great reputation for bikes that are fast and capable, great for racing or exploring off road routes in an exciting and dynamic way, and this bike is no exception. With Deore gears for slicker shifts and suntour forks for sturdier suspension, this is a superb entry in the early 2018 range and one we thoroughly recommend trying out.
