First look at Indonesia’s latest enduro e-MTB

Take a first look at the Patrol E-Six 2020 eBike from Indonesian mountain bike brand Patrol a boasting 630Wh internal battery.

Patrol Sports is the flagship brand for Indonesian bike maker United Cycles. United Cycles has been manufacturing bikes for Asian markets and other, brands since the 1960s but in the mid-2000s the company decided to launch its own brand.

Patrol’s bike range for 2020 includes specially designed kids bikes, dirt jump bikes, full-suspension mountain bikes, hardtails and 2 new eBikes bikes with integrated 630Wh batteries. Those big internal batteries are wired into Shimano E8000 motors and drive a 1 x12 Shimano drivetrain.

2020 Patrol E-Six First Look

Patrol E-Six S-Spec comes with Fox Factory suspension.

From our first look, it is clear that Patrol hasn’t cut corners on the specifications. Its first full-suspension eBikes both feature a complete Shimano 12-speed drivetrain, Shimano E8000 motor, and high-performance Fox suspension front and rear.

SLX and XT drivetrains deliver crisp and precise shifting even under loads and that extra-large 51t combined with the 70NM Shimano motor provides enough range and power to clear the most tricky of climbs.

Controlling the E8000 motor modes is a matching E8000 underbar controller which forces the dropper remote overbar. An E7000 LCD display is fitted to both versions of the bike. It might not be as fancy as the E8000 display but it is just as useful.

The E-Six frame is alloy, features the brand’s 4 bar suspension linkage and a kinked top-tube. An oversize downtube encloses the SMP 630Wh internal battery, significantly boosting range compared to a Shimano battery.
