The Ekano 2 CF Factory was among the earliest EMTBs to sport SRAM's fresh Eagle Powertrain motor. Packed with generous travel, this EMTB aims to bring freeride vibes to spots where a motorless freerider wouldn't dare to tread.
Sram is aiming to elevate system integration in E-Bikes to a new level with its own Eagle Powertrain engine. For this, the Americans are technically relying on hardware from the German manufacturer Brose and mainly scoring points with innovative software that completely relieves the rider of the need to shift gears through its Autoshift function. If desired, the 12 gears of the Transmission drive can still be manually shifted. As is customary with Brose motors, the Eagle Powertrain motor operates very quietly. The power development is $dynamic and the 9 Nm torque takes the fear out of even the steepest inclines. The average range can become a problem especially for long mountain bike rides.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Ekano 2 CF Factory in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (11000) .

The high-quality Fox chassis also takes away the fear of rough root sections. Setup-Nerds can squeeze out the maximum performance from the chassis thanks to the many setting options. The thick 38mm stanchions on the fork provide an extra dose of steering precision and performance. At the rear, the steel spring shock absorber provides maximum sensitivity. At the brakes, Propain instals upper class brakes with four pistons and large brake rotors from Magura. For an Enduro , the Schwalbe tires with a width of #reifen_inch_breite inches are relatively narrow. In our opinion, Propain could have put on wider tires. At the drive components and the remaining parts, Propain uses very good parts. The handling of the bike is pleasantly balanced due to the moderate geometry. This allows you to intuitively control the bike over the trails. Overall, the Propain developers have done a great job with a very god geometry.
