Performance & Power Combined
Whether you’re running errands, shuttling kids to the school drop-off, taking a partner along for a ride or hitting up some forest roads for a weekend getaway, the new Shimano STEPS EP8 e-bike system is there to give you a little – or a lot – of boost.
A true leader in e-bike development, Shimano has learned a lot from its many years on the scene and has truly refined their system.
The compact, light EP8 drive unit delivers up to 85 nM of smooth, direct power to ensure you’re always in control while experiencing a natural ride feeling. This is a Class 3 e-bike motor with a maximum assist level of 20 MPH.
With 630Wh, you’ll be able to ride further without having to stop and recharge. A single 630 watt-hour battery provides between 30 to 60 miles per charge, depending on conditions. The STEPS EC-E6002 charger is included.
The E5003 cycling computer gives you easy handlebar access to control your e-bike system. With large display and easy to use button layout, you’ll take less time thinking about your electric assist and more time enjoying your adventure.
All Shimano STEPS powered Xtracycle come ready to ride anytime of day or night with a Herrmans H-Black Pro front light and H-Track Dynamo rear light.
Take on your commute in full confidence with 85Nm increased maximum torque. EP6 delivers smooth, direct power to ensure you’re always in complete control while experiencing a natural ride feeling.
Shimano STEPS batteries are renowned for keeping you out longer and riding further and the new BT-E8016 is no exception.
