We sell a lot of Scott’s mountain bikes but we are equally impressed by their commuter/road style e-bikes too. They have brought their comfortable geometry and smart look to the e-Sub Comfort and powered by the lightweight S.T.E.P.S drive by Shimano, the bike will be easy to maintain which will be music to the ears of someone who needs an e-bike for commuting.
What we like…
The choice of wheel/tyre. 28″ wheels are really smooth when you’re simply rolling along on a long straight road, which is often the case on a commute. It doesn’t take long to get up to a comfortable cruising speed. The e-Contact tyres by Continental are hard-wearing with a high level of puncture resistance. If this e-bike is for commuting, then you won’t want to be late for work because of a puncture.
What you’ll like…
It’s just immensely usable. The Shimano STEPS motor has a good ‘kick’ off the line at traffic lights, which is really handy – and feels much safer. Light frame, looks and rides just like your normal bike…with more oomph obviously. We first stocked Shimano STEPS road e-bikes in 2015, and they have been universally well received by the commuter. If you are an e-bike commuter, it’s also very smart looking, so if you’re in your business suit, it won’t look out of place.
What the manufacturer says:
“The SCOTT E-SUB Comfort makes getting around town easier. With comfortable geometry, a 400wh Shimano STEPS battery and an integrated carrier, the E-SUB Comfort is the ideal commuter e-bike.”
