B'Twin Elops 900e

Jun 2018

The B’Twin Elops 900e is a decent e-bike that’ll get you around with a minimum of fuss. At £999 it’s keenly priced, as we’d expect from a company with the buying power of Decathlon. Available in diamond frame and step-through configurations, the Elops 900e has everything you need for city riding. It doesn’t have the most powerful motor though, so it’s not the best choice for hilly terrain. The Elops has been part of B’Twin’s city range for a while, with bikes starting at just £199 for the Elops 500.

Specs
Build
Frame

"The steel frame is lowered to make it easier to get on and off. Made out of steel for a very durable bike and fewer vibrations. The frame's dimensions were designed for users measuring between 1.60m and 1.80m."

Fork

To limit vibrations, on cobblestones for example, the bike is equipped with a curved steel fork.

Groupset
Crank

Your bike is equipped with a Shimano 6-speed derailleur with grip shifters. Single chainwheel guard crankset makes changing speeds easier!

Shifters

Your bike is equipped with a Shimano 6-speed derailleur with grip shifters. Single chainwheel guard crankset makes changing speeds easier!

Brakes

Your bike is fitted with aluminium V-brakes with interchangeable pads. The life span of your brake pads accounts for the weight and speed of an electric bike. In poor conditions (rain, regularly carrying loads on the bike, etc.), their life span is 400 km.

Wheels
Tires

"Your bike is equipped with 28-inch, double-walled tyres with 36 spokes for improved durability. And for greater comfort, we chose wide tyres."
