Decathlon E-Stilus 29″ Electric Mountain Bike
The new Decathlon E-Stilus Electric Mountain Bike is currently the cheapest full suspension electric mountain bike on the market and is going to be a sure-fire hit.
There have been a few compromises over the more expensive Stilus V2 but that costs £700 more! What the E-Stilus has to offer will satisfy most beginner to intermediate e-MTB riders.
This model uses the less powerful Bosch Gen 4 Performance Line motor which produces 65Nm of torque (vs 85Nm for the CX). It has a lower capacity 500Wh battery, but this should still give the rider approximately 40-50 miles of range out on the trails.
Other components like the drivetrain have been changed, although the Shimano Deore M4120 rear derailleur with 11-42 cassette works just as well as the SRAM SX system fitted to the more expensive model (albeit with 2 less gears).
Suntour XCR34 front forks with a Radion rear shock both have 130mm of travel, which for the average rider will be plenty.
At a glance the new Decathlon E-Stilus 29 looks to be excellent value for money and should be very popular. Watch this space for a full review on my sister site ebikechoices.com
COMPACT, STABLE FRAME
Full suspension 6061 aluminium frame with a compact main triangle.
66° head angle. Parallelogram rear triangle geometry designed for 130 mm rear travel. The battery sits fully in the down tube.
65NM TORQUE MOTOR
With 65 Nm of torque and great performance, this bike’s motor always gives you the right level of assistance at the right time, even on hill climbs. The pedalling motion is natural and almost resistance-free when riding in OFF mode and at more than 25 km/h. On top of all that, it’s almost completely silent, giving you a more enjoyable ride.
Natural pedalling is a must. The effective, versatile motor accelerates powerfully and guarantees an authentic experience thanks to its lack of pedalling resistance, even when you’re not in assistance mode.
The Stilus mountain bike is equipped with a Bosch Powertube 500 Wh battery that lasts for up to 4 hours and 1500 m of ascent (depending on the route and operating mode).
It takes just 15 seconds to mount/remove the battery:
1. Slide the protective cover down
2. Turn the key
3. Press the alu lever on top of the battery
and you’re done.
Your battery will always be protected from vibrations and big water/mud leaks.
Equipped with the PURION screen: a sleek on-board computer designed for riders who want to keep their handlebar uncluttered.
When riding, you have easy access to all the info you need at the touch of a button.
Five different riding modes give you the assistance you need in any situation.
5 ASSISTANCE MODES
The Stilus E-ST bike has 5 different assistance modes: Eco, Tour, eMTB, Turbo and Walk.
Eco mode aims to be economical,
Tour mode is for versatile use,
eMTB mode is very versatile but perhaps a bit less economical
and Turbo mode is powerful for a big push.
For the most difficult sections, use “Walk” mode to help you easily push your bike while on foot.
APPRECIATE THE SILENCE
The sound of a great ride! The innovative silent drivetrain makes the Performance Line (25 km/h) one of the quietest motors in its class.
E-MTB: FOR EVEN MORE ADVENTURES
Ready for any eventuality: the five riding modes turn every trip into a real joy.
Electric mountain bikes have a dedicated assistance mode called eMTB to make your adventures off the beaten track even faster.
A POWERFUL START
More fun, less effort: the motor accelerates dynamically, even at a low pedalling cadence, giving you powerful assistance right from the first turn of the pedals.
