Eurobike 2019: The Bianchi E-SUV is the future of eBikes!
A full carbon eMTB with integration and safety in mind.
We’ve seen a lot at Eurobike today, too much to post, but the new Bianchi E-SUV ebikes are something we just had to get up right now.
Bianchi isn’t new to the ebike game, but with the new E-SUV of 3 ebikes the Italian brand has taken what it has learned to the next level with integration and functionality.
Bianchi is calling this “a disruptive e-MTB” and it’s easy to see why. This full-carbon ebike has a 720Wh battery, integrated front, and rear lights, and looks almost like a futuristic motorbike than eMTB.
The E-SUV bikes are said to be next generation ebikes and Bianchi says that the E-SUV (electric sports utility vehicle) is all about going anywhere and following your spirit of adventure.
Each model sports a full carbon frame with an edgy design that they say was inspired by the unique shape of the Dolomites and shows the connection between nature and technology. We think it looks like everyone’s fantasy of what an ebike could look like.
Inside the unique carbon frame is a 720Wh battery covered with a battery door with a unique cooling system that helps to prevent the motor and battery from overheating. There’s an air intake that brings in cool air with a space for the circulated air at the bottom to escape.
Battery integration is hardly new, but Bianchi has also taken an element of safety into hand with integrated front and rear lights fitted to the bike. A headlight lives in the stem while rear red lights are found in the seat stays of the frame.
Looking past all the futuristic design and carbon fiber what Bianchi has is an ebike with Shimano Steps E8000 motor and 12-speed drivetrain.
3 versions of the Bianchi E-SUV will be available with the E-SUV Adventure model built with an SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain, E8000 motor, 150mm travel front and rear, 720Wh battery and mismatched wheels.
The E-SUV Rally offers a similar specification but with Shimano 1×12 drivetrain and integrated mudguards, while the E-SUV Racer has 160mm of front wheel travel and 29in wheels front and rear.
