Scott electric bikes have successfully used the Bosch power system for a few years. Now, fitted with the new STEPS integrated e-bike system by Shimano, the Scott E-Sub Tour 20 unisex is the first of the e-bikes in the Cycling Made Easy showroom, to feature this system.
Scott electric bikes are renowned for having great components and the STEPS system does not compromise this at all. The bike has exclusive components such as the ‘SIL-TEC’ coated, reinforced drive chain and with the drive unit weighing only 3,2kg, it has a significant weight advantage over other crank drive e-bikes.
The bike on the whole is surprisingly light considering the weight of other similar looking bikes. In fact, at only 21kg, it’s lighter than a Boris Bike and a whole lot more fun to commute with!
Like all the E-Sub Tour bikes, the frame geometry is very comfortable. If you like to cycle in an upright position, this is possible for you on this bike. It is perfect for long leisurely cycles.
For your convenience mudguards, lights and a rack have been fitted as standard but we would also recommend some panniers to give you some carrying capacity. While the seat is fairly comfortable, we have found that most of our customers want to upgrade the Scott saddles to something they can sit on for hours. Head here for info on our saddle range.
