This has been a tricky category to choose the finalists, as we’ve already seen what’s coming in 2020 – and as you’d expect with new technology, there are some giant leaps that make the older models look almost quaint. But what we’re interested in for the Singletrack Reader Awards are the things that you’re riding now – so 2020 bikes are going to have to wait to slug it out at next year’s awards. Here’s the finalists that made the cut:
The Finalists – Best e-MTB
150mm rear travel, 160mm fork, 29er front wheel and 27.5+ rear wheel…nope, this is not just a Spectral with a battery strapped to it. Shimano Steps motor keeps things going mile after mile, and with prices from £3,449 it’s competitively priced.
185mm rear travel, 160mm fork, 29er front wheel and 27.5+ rear whee, carbon frame and a Shimano Steps motor. It’s not cheap, but it is fun. And it’s absolutely nothing like the old Tazer (for those who remember that far back)
With so many of these on the trails, it was bound to make the final shortlist. 150mm travel front and rear, and 29er wheels front and rear too, with a carbon front triangle and Brose motor.
