The launch of SHIMANO’s new e-bike system, known as SHIMANO EP8, brings the two pillars of e-biking - the hardware and the software – up to a new benchmark in system-engineered e-bike components that can tackle everything from premium mountain biking and competition racing to trail riding, cross-country, casual MTB, trekking and off-road adventuring.
Shimano's second generation e-MTB system is packed full of new features designed to bring EP8's performance standard to the best ever seen in Shimano's e-biking history. Many of the unique features of SHIMANO EP8 come in its more powerful yet lighter weight, smoother pedaling, cleanly integrated and reduced-noise drive unit, which also manages to keep cool more efficiently and provide improved bike handling over its predecessors.
As well as this two revamped mobile apps – the E-TUBE PROJECT app and the E-TUBE RIDE app – give riders more display options and more customizable control over their drive unit’s characteristics.
The new system follows SHIMANO's long-standing e-biking principles of creating a natural feeling ride with controllable high power when you need it most, wrapped up in a total SHIMANO system package. From the e-bike drive unit to the drivetrain and brakes, it’s the performance level you expect from a brand with almost unrivalled experience in mountain biking.
