160 E C1 SLX e-Bike by Yeti Cycles

Yeti makes its debut into the world of e-mountain bikes with the all-new 160 E. While there's no denying they took their sweet time getting there Yeti wanted to be sure they got it right and after throwing a leg over the 160 E and knocking out 30 miles in less than half the time it normally takes we feel they might just have gotten it perfect.

That being said Sixfinity allows for an adjustable leverage rate and the bike comes with a 3-position flip-chip that lets us tune the bike to be ultra-plush ultra-efficient or right in the middle with a well-balanced middle setting. As for the motor and battery Yeti opts for the Shimano EP8 system that's already well-proven in the field. This means no proprietary parts to worry about as the Shimano system is readily supported worldwide. The 630-Watt hour integrated battery provides hassle-free off-the-bike charging and has more than enough juice to propel us int...
