Despite an aggressive look, the rigid rear end of the E-505 Hardtail Electric Mountain Bike isn´t meant for rough terrain.
Bosch is the major motor manufacturer in the EMTB world, alongside Shimano - and it's no surprise, as the Performance Line CX shows. With torque under the motor cover, the support is generous. Nobody needs to fear steep hills anymore. Furthermore, the power of the motor control is regulated so that the start always feels dynamic,. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the E-505 Hardtail Electric Mountain Bike with only an average range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the E-505 Hardtail Electric Mountain Bike in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (6000) .

The very good fork brand Federgabel absorbs roots with the calmness of a Buddhist monk. Especially for heavy riders, the Whyte brakes could be a problem. With four pistons they only decelerate averagely. At the drive components and the remaining parts, Whyte uses very good parts. The head tube angle falls very flat with 65,5°. The bottom bracket is also very low. The geometry thus clearly drifts into the extreme. Experienced full-throttle shredders will find this geo the stuff of happiness. Less experienced riders might be better off with a more moderate geometry.
