Scott’s High Value Urban E Bike
A fantastic value e bike, the E-Sub Cross 20 takes the comfort and convenience of its non-electric counterpart and gets you further faster with the Bosch Activeline motor.
Bosch Drive System
The Bosch Active motor is an elegant and light motor, snugly fitting onto the frame so as not to interfere with your centre of gravity. There is very little noise, so the experience of riding your bike should also be undisturbed. The motor is designed to be harmonious with your cycling; adjusting the level of assistance is smooth and intuitive thanks to the Purion display, which allows you to keep both hands firmly on the handlebars as you use it, and the level of assistance you receive corresponds exactly to the level of effort you exert on the pedals. This ranges from 40% added support level on Eco setting, up to 250% on the Turbo setting.
Shimano gears and brakes
The E-Sub Cross 20 features the Shimano Acera 9 speed gears, an ideal gear system for entry level mountain biking. The gear system benefits from much of the technology of higher end derailleurs in the series, providing smooth and reliable gear changes, all in a neat and well protected package. Combined with Shimano disc brakes, you can be assured of stable, easy control of your bike, so you can remain confident as you ride.
Tyres and Forks
The Smart Sam tyres are fantastic to look at, and feel great on the track as well. Edged outer lugs keep a firm grip even as you execute sharp turns on tricky terrain, while the centralised rib ensures smooth and speedy travel on roads. These make for a reliable and comfortable ride, particularly when combined with the Suntour forks which provide 63mm of travel.
The Scott E Sub Cross is a great package at a fantastic price, perfect for entry level mountain biking with an electric edge. This is a great way to experience the design sophistication of Scott with the power and responsiveness of Bosch.
