For me, the most important thing about mountain biking is being in the nature. That’s what drives me again and again. Whenever I have time, I’m out there. For me, mountain biking is simply the ultimate passion. A new design or a new product doesn’t come from out of the blue, it’s a lot of practical experience. When you think about E-MTB, the main thing is the battery. Which battery? How big? Which design? These questions were the start and also the reason for my many tours. I did ride 250,000 meters of altitude in order to determine how much battery capacity I need on average on my tours. On average it was 750 watt hours, and this was exactly the size I wanted to install in my bike to get rid of an annoying second battery. That was the initial idea of this bike. But where were the hurdles? Motor, battery, carbon frame, travel, geometries, stand-over, weight, stiffness Everything had to be thought of permanently. If you don’t know where you want to go, then you have no goal for your daily work. I always have some riding tours in mind, then I imagine landscapes, adventures, and that’s what I want to experience. A design process is similar. You imagine something, you put it on paper, you bring it into a 3D form, then into reality and finally, when everything comes together, I want to go out into the mountains and nature with the bike. And then it has to work unconditionally well and optimally. We owe that to our customers. With the R.X750 and the R.E750 we are between 22 and 23 kg with 150 or 170 mm travel. A bike weighing 25-26 kg is just the decisive 2-3 kg too heavy. The additional weight of an E-MTB, of course, comes from the motor and battery, which we have placed as low and central as possible. We achieve a very good balanced wheel load when riding uphill very steeply, the bike feels more stable on the trail. It’s safer to ride, you can rider steeper and faster if you want. It’s a new world, this bike is a statement. It is aesthetically as well as technically simple that non-plus-ultra. Quite simple. Everyone who has ridden the bike comes back with a smile. It’s just fantastic, it’s a whole new experience. It’s a new league of its own!
