2020 SUNN Gordon eMTB gets integrated Shimano battery first look!
French VTT maker SUNN updates 2020 ebike range with new frames and integrated batteries
French bike builder, SUNN, is set to launch new versions of its eMTBs including an updated SUNN Gordon with new frame and internal battery.
If you don’t live in France, speak French, or ride a BMX, chances are you don’t know very much about Sunn mountain bikes. Even if you know Sunn from back in the 90’s it’s highly likely that you didn’t even know this French company was still in business.
If you didn’t know, Sunn is still in business, and they do make ebikes and have done for at least the past 2 years.
In the 2019 Sunn range of ebikes there are the Sunn Charger and Sunn Rage. For 2020 though, the Rage and Charger are to be joined by the Sunn Flash hardtail and 2020 Sunn Gordon. The two new eMTBs both use Shimano motors, and have fresh alloy frames that locate the battery internally.
Sunn will offer 2 build options of the 2020 Gordon, a Finest level build with high-end parts and the S1 with price-conscious components. Sunn hasn’t updated its website with the official details of the Sunn Gordon, but we’ve done some digging and got our hands on a few notes.
2020 Sunn Gordon Finest
The Sunn Gordon Finest will cost €5,399 in France. The alloy bike comes with 29in Magic wheels, WTB tires, and an SRAM groupset. Suspension is from RockShox, and SDG is the supplier for the saddle and dropper post.
2020 Sunn Gordon S1
For riders on a budget, the Sunn Gordon S1 is priced at €3799. Again this bike has 29in WTB tires, and Shimano motor, and it looks to use the sale alloy frame too. We can only tell you what we see from the images and what we see is a Shimano 1 x 10 drivetrain.
Both the S1 and Finest come in frame sizes S,M,L and if we look at the specs of the original Gordon, we can guess that the 2020 model should have about 130mm suspension travel.
Sunn’s new Flash ebike uses a similar looking internal battery, but on a hardtail frame with Shimano motor. We’ll keep an eye out for Sunn at Eurobike this week.
