We were really glad to see this on offer in NZ because a lot of the hardtail eMTBs that are around are just not quite set up for riding real mountain biking – often there’s something just a little lacking in one of the key areas like gear range for climbing, quality of front suspension, no dropper post or something like that.
The eBIG.TRAIL 600 however comes with everything that’s needed for a fully committed trail hardtail. Enduro geometry represented in the slack head angle, a dropper post to get the saddle out of the way for descents (or spontaneous jumps), plus tyres for extra float and grip, big rotors (200 front 180 rear), big range cassette for when the climbing gets steep and a powerful MTB drive unit.
And these features aren’t just handy for the born-to-shred hardouts sending gaps out there, anyone mountain biking at any level will experience the benefits of a consummate mountain bike that’s completely ready for what the trail has to offer. Extra grip, control, stability and ride quality is a very good thing!
Possibly the best trail hardtail we’ve seen at this price to date. A hardtail with the full range of uncompromised trail features.
HFS-hydroforming Prolite 66 triple butted aluminium frame with aggressive trail geometry – Shimano STePS E8000 motor allows for short chain stays delivering agility. ‘Smart Entry’ cable routing for rattle free running. Casting motor bracket creates an integrated appearance of the motor into the frame as well as provides an extremely strong connection between frame and motor.
FULL GAS WITH BOOST
6 mm extra hub spacing at the rear: The eBIG.TRAIL comes with the new ‘Boost 12×148’ standard and through axles front and rear. The shallower spoke angle allows for an even stiffer wheel. On top of that, the chain line moves outwards – an important requirement for short chainstays.
130 MILLIMETER OF SLACKNESS
A hardtail as a trail bike? No problem! 130 mm travel, a super stiff front end and an enduro-like 67.5° head angle set our eBIG.TRAIL up perfectly for fun orientated trail duties. The 760 mm bars and super short stem fit seamlessly into the trail bike concept.
STEALTH DROPPER SEATPOST
A dropper post is allowing the rider to get the saddle out of the way when the gradient gets steeper, giving him/her more space to manoeuver and control over their bike. The fitted dropper posts featuring internal cable routing and remote levers, creating a cleaner look and allowing easier ‘on the go’ saddle height adjustment.
ULTRA SHORT CHAINSTAYS
434 mm long chain stays are perfect for delivering a super playful handling. Thanks to ‘Boost’ hubs and the super compact size of the STePS E8000 or E7000 motor, the chain stays are not much longer than the ones on a non-powered trail bike.
650B+ wheels featuring 35-40 mm wide inner width rims and 2.8″ tyres which are hugely capable when the going gets rough but also offer loads and loads of up-hill traction, cornering grip, puncture resistance and cushioning, without being draggy or sluggish. Most models offer tubeless ready rims and tyre configurations making a conversion to tubeless incredibly straightforward.
Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent rattling when the trails and roads get rough. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with Di2, hydraulic hoses, brake cable and gear cable housings etc.
