No, it’s not the Terminator, nor is it a new China e-bike. ET.CYCLE is rather the e-bike brand of the globally active e-bike dealer Leon Cycle from Hanover. With the ET.CYCLE T1000, this company has now presented not an assassin robot, but a new e-trekking fatbike. Among the highlights of the features include, in addition to fat tires, a powerful Das Kit rim motor, as well as a 960 Wh strong battery.
ET.CYCLE T1000 in detail
About a year after the launch of the F1000 e-fatbike, the ET.CYCLE T1000 awaits you with an edgy and eye-catching new e-trekking fatbike. As the name suggests, the bike sits on particularly wide tires. A trademark of the still young bike manufacturer.
“With our ET.CYCLE series, we want to bring the spirit of American motorcycles to European roads and thus specifically address the young target group,” reveals Tanja Pfister, Marketing Manager DACH at Leon Cycle. “Especially in the city, e-fatbikes are a real alternative to the conventional bicycle. Because the wide tires glide downright over streetcar tracks and curbs.”
In addition to the wide 26-inch tires, a Das-Kit rim motor with an output of 250 watts, as well as a 960 Wh strong battery, also from manufacturer Das-Kit, are among the highlights of the features. Concrete details about the torque or the range are not yet mentioned.
Visually, however, the beefy and angular frame of the T1000 is supposed to be based on the chopper motorcycles from the United States. Features also include a comfortable saddle from Selle Royal, as well as luggage racks front and rear.
Braking is by means of hydraulic disc brakes from Tektro. The ET.CYCLE T1000 weighs in at 35.5 kg. That’s more than twice as much as the Thömus Lightrider E Ultimate, which the Swiss manufacturer recently unveiled.
Price and availability
The ET.CYCLE T1000 is expected to find its way into stores from 01 quarter 2023. The manufacturer’s RRP is 2,399 euros. For more details on the e-bikes from Hanover in Lower Saxony, Germany, visit the manufacturer’s homepage.
