YETI 160E T1 ELECTRIC MOUNTAIN BIKE 2022
Intended for hard-charging enduro style riders, Yeti’s 160E T1 Electric Mountain Bike builds on the brand’s gravity-biased heritage and adds a healthy dose of climbing ability.
The Sixfinity carbon frame offers kinematics specifically designed for the extra power that is generated by an electric bike as well as the additional weight, delivering prodigious grip and great handling. The Switch link in the suspension changes direction halfway through its path, improving the frame’s anti-squat characteristics whilst the flip-chip allows the leverage rate progression to be altered between 25%, 30% and 35% without altering other ride characteristics or travel.
As the Sixfinity suspension chassis is electric-bike specific, it still has short chainstays for more nimble handling despite the 29” wheels and bottom bracket motor. With a 630Wh battery and 250W Shimano DU-EP800 motor, there is plenty of power on hand for assistance up to the legal limit of 15.5 mph / 25 km/h, yet the bike still feels eminently rideable at speeds far exceeding the assistance.
FOX’s Factory 38 GRIP 2/170MM E-Tune fork provides control and traction at the front, with a tune that takes into account the demands of high-speed electric bike use.
The 29” wheels are DT Swiss’ 30mm wide EX1700 model that pairs perfectly with the wide, tubeless-ready Maxxis tyres to provide grip and confidence when flying downhill as well as helping to exploit the bike’s climbing ability. A wireless Reverb AXS dropper seatpost is ideal for such an all-mountain machine, allowing the saddle height to be raised or lowered instantly as required.
Mechanical shifting is supplied courtesy of Shimano’s reliable XT drivetrain, with SRAM’s powerful, 4-piston Code RSC brakes on duty when it comes to controlling the bike’s speed.
