Engineered to unlock your potential
With its huge 750Wh battery and high power 85Nm Bosch Performance Line CX motor, our E-160 S ensures you're geared up for maximum enjoyment on the trails, wherever you go. We've also fitted exactly the componentry you need to inspire you to take your riding further: fully wireless and electronic SRAM AXS GX 1x12 gearing delivers instant shifting through all conditions, custom-tuned RockShox suspension keeps you connected and in control on the trail, and four-piston SRAM brakes deliver reliable power through all weathers.
Confidence on any terrain
Our Total Geometry approach gives the E-160 S a generous reach, reassuring head angle and short offset fork, making it the most confidence-inspiring, nimble e-bike we’ve ever made. We’ve also given the E-160 S a rock-bottom centre of gravity by optimising the distribution of the battery and motor mass within the chassis. So you can expect exceptional cornering agility and a planted feel on even the choppiest terrain. You can also adjust the bike's geometry using its Shape.It Link ‘flip-chip’ geometry adjust (switchable from the stock 'High' setting to 'Low' to slacken the bike out by 0.6 degrees and lower the bottom bracket by 8mm) for even more gravity-focused handling.
Engineered for life
We’ve engineered the E-160 S not just to perform today but for every day you want to ride it – for years to come. Everything from making the day-to-day tasks simple and easy – like hassle-free battery installation/removal, keeping room for a water bottle in the main frame, and in-the-bike-charging – to standing behind you for the long haul with the best rider support out there, four-year extended frame warranty and our lifetime warranty on bearings for total peace of mind. Because when a bike is this good you’ll want to ride it as much as possible.
With the Bosch Smart System – which links up the E-160 S’s bar-mounted LED Remote, battery and motor via the companion 'eBike Flow' app – you can have even more information at your fingertips to manage, tailor and personalise your bike just how you want: tune the motor support levels; keep track of your bike’s performance and battery consumption; plan and navigate routes; keep your software up to date. And much, much more.

Customer Reviews of Les's Cycles
Les’s Cycles has to be the best cycle shop in Essex. All the staff are friendly and helpful.
A small store from the outside but an Aladdin’s cave on the inside.
Not at all pushy like big chains.
Will not be going anywhere else from now on
Thank you Les’s CyclesGoogle Reviews
Just got my e bike sorted by Les Cycles. They were brilliant. My bike is under warranty and the manufacturer wasn’t very helpful at all. Despite this Les Cycles persisted and managed to eventually get the part needed. They fixed it all up and now I’m happily cycling again. Would definitely recommend them. The after care they give is truly first class.Google Reviews
The best bike shop by far.
Order a bike late on a Saturday (11:30pm) and by 11am the next day it was built and ready for me to collect.
The staff were more than happy to spend time explaining all about my new ebike, never had one so I had alot of questions.
Very knowledgeable and helpful.Google Reviews
