Are electric mountain bikes fun? That's the question that the folks from GMBN, the Global Mountain Bike Network were looking for an answer to in their latest video.
And what's the answer? Well, we won't spoil it for you before you've had a chance to watch for yourselves. So here's the video!
GMBN had a lot of fun with their e-MTB. Not really a surprise to us: every time we've sat anyone on an electric mountain bike they've had the time of their lives. It certainly doesn't hurt that they were on board the Scott E-Genius 710 Plus, which we tested lasy year and remains one of our favourite bikes so far.
We gave it four and a half stars when we reviewed it, saying, "Overall this bike is a compelling package. It’s nimble enough for trail use, with enough in the suspension and the tyres to soak up some pretty big hits. And of course once you’re at the bottom of your run you’ve got 250W of help to get you back to the top."
If you've never tried an e-MTB then you should definitely give it a try. We'll be teaming up with manufacturers and distributors in the coming year to run a series of demo events, so we'll keep you in the loop on those. Stay tuned!
