Mounted battery and hub motor: The E-ST 500 27.5 wants to distance itself from modern e-mountain bikes and prefers to go after customers with a favorable price.
At steep sections, the somewhat weak Brose motor requires a lot of initiative from the biker. The Brose Drive C Alu gives off a natural riding feeling. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the E-ST 500 27.5 , because of its low range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the 27.5" Electric Mountain Bike E-ST 500 - Mid-Drive Motor in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (2000) .

As the bumps get bigger and rougher the average SR Suntour fork limits the downhill fun. The average shifting components and accessories leave some tuning potential open. For most e-bikers, this should be an acceptable point. If the Meta's chainstay length is less than 445, the short chainstay and, if the Reach's Relative Rating is less than 3, the relatively short reach characterise the Rockrider as a playful, agile bike. This makes it easy to navigate through winding trails. The 27.5 inch wheels additionally emphasize the playful character. The low bottom bracket height will likely be a sticking point for trail riders, as it negatively affects handling. Short chainstays and and a slack seat angle make the front end light in steep climbs. To keep the front wheel on the ground, you need to consciously lean forward.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Rockrider 27.5″ Electric Mountain Bike E-ST 500 – Mid-Drive Motor

The E-ST 500 27.5 isnt`t a specialist on the trail. Despite a simple brake system and a weak range, it remains a solid all-rounder with a wide range of use. Be careful when choosing the size: The Aluminium frame sizing runs small.
