New Swedish ebikes unveiled at Eurobike 2020
Husqvarna hits up Eurobike with a complete 2020 line up of extreme eMTBs powered by Shimano motors and designed to take you where other ebikes won’t dare!
There is nothing subtle about the 2020 Husqvarna ebike range. Everything about these bikes shouts loud and looks extreme, from lairy downhill ebikes to futuristic carbon wheeled all-mountain bikes this Swedish brand has it all and at Eurobike, we got a chance to see them first hand.
Husqvarna Hard Cross HCX 27.5
The Husqvarna Hard Cross 27.5 is an alloy enduro bike with full intergrtated battery and fully active 4 bar suspension system. Listed as an enduro bike, the Hard Cross 27.5 runs 180mm of suspension travel front and rear controlled by RockShox suspension systems.
The stealth black bike uses a Shimano E8000 70Nm motor, with E7000 display, but the battery isn’t Shimano and instead, it’s a larger 630Wh Simplo internal battery with 4A fast charging.
Husqvarna offers the Hard Cross in various builds, but this top of the line bike ships with a Race Face carbon bars, Magura MT7 4 piston brakes, SRAM AXS Eagle wireless drivetrain, and a Kindshock C1 dropper post.
What helps this bike stand out from the crowd this are the Bike Ahead Bi TurboRS full carbon 6 spoke wheels, which brings the price of this unique eBike to €11,999.
Husqvarna Mountain Cross MC8
This Mountain Cross 27.5 uses a similar suspension system as the Hard Cross but produces 150mm of suspension travel instead. Fox dampers handle the bumps on this all-mountain / enduro bike, and while it doesn’t come with fancy 6 spoke wheels it does get some flashy kit.
Kashima coated suspension, Shimano E8000 motor, internal 630Wh battery, Shimano 4 piston XT brakes and Shimano’s electronic Di2 drivetrain. The cost of the Husqvarna Mountain Cross MC8 is €6,799 but prices start at €4199 for the MC4.
Extreme Cross 27.5+ EXC9
If 180mm of travel still doesn’t quite cut it then what about the Extreme Cross line up with 200mm of travel and a dual crown downhill fork? Husqvarna builds the Extreme Cross on 27.5in wheels using a downhill-specific version of the 4-Link suspension system.
The top of the line EX10 comes gets Fox suspension and a coil shock for €7699, while this more affordable and more subtle blue EXC9 ships at €5399 with RockShox Boxxer fork, Super Deluxe coil shock and dropper post.
