More boost on the mountain. The Uphill Flow.
Every mountain is unique. Every trail a challenge. But flow isn't only achieved on the downhills. Because the eMTB mode gives you a boost on the uphills, too. Always optimally adapted to you, the incline and the terrain – regardless of rocks, roots or steps. With this riding mode, which you can select via your display, you'll receive ample power on the uphills and can enjoy them just like the descents! So you get power on the uphills and can enjoy them like the downhills. A unique riding sensation for maximum riding enjoyment in eMountain biking. We call this 'Uphill Flow'.
The gradient and surface vary constantly. But the eMTB mode gets you going in all riding situations. On gentle climbs, it sensitively delivers the support of the drive system. On steep sections it helps you conquer obstacles and gives you more control. However much power you need: The sensor-controlled eMTB mode recognises it in a flash from the pressure on the pedals.
For your unique eMTB experience
Focus on flow: Dynamically increasing support
A trail changes with every metre you conquer with your bike. Sometimes the path becomes steeper, sometimes rockier: In every situation, the eMTB mode adapts its support perfectly to you and the surface – dynamically, with increasing support and maximum sensitivity. While you focus on the flow and enjoy the natural riding sensation, the eMTB mode optimises your trail performance.
Full speed uphill: 85 Nm of torque
The climb to the top takes energy, but don't worry: The extra push of the Performance Line CX takes the strain off your muscles. The motor unleashes its 85 Nm of power when you need it. This allows you to go higher and enjoy the view on the summit without breaking a sweat.
Tackling demanding routes with ease: The Extended Boost
Root systems or steep passages with loose surfaces: The Extended Boost helps you in particularly tricky situations on the trail. With targeted pressure on the pedal, the function provides the decisive kick – and you have conquered the obstacle in the blink of an eye.
A little kick is all it takes to master challenging obstacles with powerful support or to accelerate powerfully out of corners.
On relaxed sections, your battery is conserved – and you save energy so that you can go further.
Technology in detail
eMTB mode for power and control
The eMTB mode provides you with targeted support for eMountain biking and always delivers power exactly when you need it. Whether on steep sections or individual obstacles. This is precisely when it delivers up to 340% of the rider's own power and a maximum torque of 85 Nm. This is how the power for the Uphill Flow is created.
How much power the eMTB mode provides depends on the pedal pressure. Sensors measure the load more than 1,000 times per second to achieve the optimal motor response: fast, but particularly sensitive power delivery that adapts to your needs. Because maximum torque is available over a very wide cadence range, you'll make better progress in any riding situation.
Extended Boost overcomes obstacles
Whatever challenges the trail has in store for you: the Extended Boost helps you tackle them. With the clever function of the Extended Boost, technical sections can be mastered with confidence and root systems or steps can be overcome without any problems. All you need to do for that decisive and well-delivered power is push the pedals when you need it.
As a function of the eMTB mode, Extended Boost dynamically releases power. Because targeted pressure is sufficient to trigger the impulse for propulsion via the pedal, the boost can be optimally controlled and pedal strikes can be easily prevented. This is good for both pedal management and handling.
What our athletes have to say about eMTB mode
“I like tricky climbs that challenge me technically. Climbs that require a lot of intuition. The most rewarding eMTB mode experience is mastering an uphill climb that I previously thought was impossible.”
“Uphill, before tight turns or steep steps, I sometimes doubt myself if it's possible – and the very next moment I've moved on without a problem. The eMTB mode is so much fun because it lets me overcome uphill obstacles with ease.”
“How much support do I need? Which mode is the right one? It doesn't matter. The eMTB mode always supports me just right, so I don't have to think much about it and can enjoy the ride.”
“I ride in eMTB mode 90 percent of the time because I trust it 100 percent. I'm not overwhelmed with too much power and not underwhelmed with not enough thrust. That gives me huge confidence. I also trust the eMTB mode for big jumps.”
“The bike magically sticks to your foot, even in steep riding situations up the mountain. In my riding technique training sessions, I show what new scenarios are possible thanks to the eMTB mode – and what fun it is.”
Uphill Flow – with better riding technique to the summit
Your eBike contains the power to take you to the top with confidence. With the right riding technique you can experience the Uphill Flow even more intensely: We reveal the best tips for improving your technique, from starting to optimal pedal management to the uphill wheelie.
