The Connect is our latest model and features the popular Shimano STEPS motor. The Shimano system is the most advanced crank driven electric motor on the market today. This system reads information about how you are riding and delivers power appropriately in real-time, resulting in a ride that feels completely natural. The motor will read information such as the torque exerted on the cranks when the user pedals, the gradient and speed. It will then calculate how much power the motor should produce to supplement the rider’s pedalling.
Brakes and gears on the Connect are also produced by esteemed manufacturer, Shimano. Featuring the Alfine hydraulic disc brake system to the front and rear wheels that enables highly responsive stopping power in all conditions. The Shimano Deore 9 speed gears and premium derailleur system provides smooth gear changes with a push or pull of the handlebar mounted levers.
All components throughout this electric bike are selected for quality, included are Kevlar strengthened tyres by Kenda and 700c rims by Alexrims. Even the mudguards have been chosen for their strength and flexibility from German manufacturer, SKS. SR Suntour’s industry renowned NCX suspension forks absorb the effects of rough or bumpy terrain with ease, providing a smooth and comfortable ride. The Spanninga LED lights ensure you will be seen on the roads and can be controlled from the control screen on the handlebars.
With 700c wheels and a taller frame (20.2”), the Connect has a sleek and agile look accentuated by features like the smooth welding on the frame and electric blue styling.
