0, 1, 2 or 3: choosing your assistance mode
OFF mode – Assistance disabled.
Eco mode - Gentle assistance at up to 25 km/h that means you can forget about the weight of the bike - battery life of around 120km under normal conditions.
Normal mode - Moderate assistance up to 25 km/h - battery life of around 90km under normal conditions.
High mode - "Boost" assistance up to 25 km/h for more difficult inclines with battery life of around 60km under normal conditions.

What are the benefits of a central motor vs a rear motor?
- A smooth ride without any jolts thanks to the progressive assistance.
- When pushing off, cycling uphill, or when you are carrying baggage, the assistance is more dynamic.
- More manoeuvrable thanks to excellent weight distribution.
- Rear wheel easily removable
- Improved battery life thanks to better energy management
- Better performance, no braking effect beyond 25km/h
- Option to attach a bike trailer
Motor: use those watts!
The new ultra-quiet central Shimano Steps E6100 motor has been designed for long-distance road and trail riding.
With its 60 Nm torque, you get powerful assistance on hills when heavily laden.
This new motor is the upgraded version of its predecessor (the E6000) to give you an even longer battery range:
- less resistance for 20% more motor efficiency
- 210 g lighter, now weighing just 2.88 kg.
