Like most American manufacturers, Yeti has long resisted the topic of e-mountain bikes. With the 160E T1, however, the company from Colorado has succeeded in creating a respectable first model.
In the automotive and motorcycle world, Japan has always had a reputation for being a breeding ground for excellent engines. Shimano is doing its utmost to live up to this reputation in the e-bike world with the EP8 engine. 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 160E T1 with only an average range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the 160E T1 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (14000) .

The chassis, besides the motor and battery, is one of the most expensive components of an EMTB. With the golden shine Fox suspension elements, Yeti doesn't skimp in this area. Thanks to an fantastic function, the entire bike lies comfortably on the track when it goes downhill. 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. With its four pistons and larger brake rotors the SRAM braking system decelerates extremely goodly. This allows you to maintain control over your own pace even in the steepest descents. Those who live for premium quality will love the transmission and parts of this EMTB. Here Yeti cranks up the bling-bling factor to 11. The handling of the bike is pleasantly balanced due to the moderate geometry. This allows you to intuitively control the bike over the trails. The low bottom bracket height is a party pooper for the handling on the trail. On other bikes, you are more centrally located behind the handlebar. Short chainstays and make the front end light in steep climbs. To keep the front wheel on the ground, you need to consciously lean forward. Hell yeah, the geometry is killer! Here the know-how of the Yeti developers is videly visible. The scale stays at 22,5 kg with this model. That makes the 160E T1 one of the light Enduros.
