This Substance model provides an agile, stable and comfortable performance at a low weight, giving it the versatility that’s suited to everything from gravel racing to bike packing adventures and epic trekking journeys. Plus, it’s kitted out with fast-rolling Prime Kanza Tubeless Ready wheels wrapped in WTB Tubeless tyres and has mounts for both mudguards and a rear cargo rack.
Lightweight and Versatile Carbon Adventure E-Bike
The E-Substance Carbon is built around a lightweight and versatile UD Carbon frame, with integrated electric drive system from Fazua – the lightest and most compact drive system in the industry.

A unique natural riding feel with no mechanical resistance above the legal speed limit makes the Emitter perfect for anyone looking to enjoy a fun ride at any speed, on any terrain. 3 levels of assistance up to 250 watts allow you to tailor the ride to suit. Featuring the latest generation Evation with integrated Top Tube controller.
