Hans Rey's E-MTB

Hans rides a GT E-Verb equipped with a Shimano STEPS E8000 Drivetrain.

About the System




I love the way my GT eVerb full-suspension e-MTB rides. Its a great all-round bike, that can even handle steep and rough trails. I have tried out many different e-bikes in the past years, I really like the way the STEPS E8000 motor feels, its a very natural support that feels like riding my regular mountain bike with lots of extra help (power). I also like the many option for individual setup the Shimano system offers.
