The Corratec E-Power XVert 650B CX ebike with its fully integrated Bosch Powertube 500Wh battery is one of the leading hardtail electric mountain bikes available and you can hardly tell its electric. It comes with excellent running gear for the mountain bike purists - Manitou front forks, 11 speed Shimano Deore XT gearing, Magura MT5 hydraulic brakes and it packs a punch for hard core hill climbing with the Bosch Performance CX motor. The Powertube battery is fully integrated into the frame which provides perfect balance for handling and completely protects the battery. Strong 27.5" Cross Attack wheels running on Continental XKing 2.4" tyres provide plenty of stability and traction. On the E-Power XVert 650B you can conquer all tracks, straight out of your garage, up Mt Coottha or into work. Made in Germany and made to last.
In the past two years we have seen a revolution of sorts with drive system and frame design and Corratec are one of the brands leading the way. Utilising the new Bosch Powertube technology, the 2018 Corratec E-Power XVert 650B CX is an e-bike that features great tech as well as being superbly specced as a mountain bike. This hardtail e-mountain bike has the grunt you would expect with the Bosch Performance CX motor and you can hardly tell it is electric with the subtlety in the way Corratec have designed their frame. Corratec's patented Shadow Edge tubing houses the Bosch Powertube 500Wh battery snugly and safely into the frame providing perfect handling and balance.
There is also a heap of extra patented Corratec technology that puts them ahead of other mountain ebikes. Tech that makes sure Corratec E-Power XVert ebikes are reliable, strong and stable to ride and to minimise maintenance. For example, the Shadow Edge Tube which houses the battery is designed to look great (always important!) and allows easy removal of the battery for charging. It is made of high grade polyamid with glass fibre reinforcement to protect the battery and electronics from external shocks and grime. Internal cable routing keeps things stylish and clean and Corratec's has developed an engine bracket that improves stability and stiffness, protects the motor and is still service and maintenance friendly.
