Late to the game as Yeti is, it wasn’t without reason—Yeti wanted to get the 160E right from the beginning.

After building exciting mountain bikes for nearly four decades, the American cult brand is rightly considered one of the pioneers of mountain biking. However, Yeti were also one of the last to jump on the electric bandwagon. Now they’re determined to secure victory in our 2022 eMTB group test. Was the Yeti 160E T1 able to assert itself against the competition with its Shimano EP8 motor, 630 Wh battery and complex Sixfinity rear suspension?
Enormously-wide range of applications
Excellent suspension performance

Masterful performance on all terrain types thanks to impeccable suspension and great geometry. The 160E is eye-wateringly expensive, though, and the EP-8 motor failed during testing but was replaced under Shimano’s warranty scheme. Therefore, my score is based on the bike’s performance alone.
Super-supple, supportive and progressive suspension sets new benchmark for enduro bikes
Overall downhill capabilities hard to beat
Value for money isn’t great
Tyres are disappointing on a bike of this nature
EP-8 motor failed after a month of use
Impossible to evaluate longevity of pivot bearings during month-long test period

Long-awaited Yeti 160E T1 e-bike is built to race with a complex six-bar linkage that claims to bring efficiency and composure on the roughest descents.
Great handling and suspension balance. Confident cornering. Comfortable at pace.
Seat tube could be shorter. Heavy and could be more agile. Some heel rub with wide feet. Shimano charging port and battery release could be more refined. Very expensive.

The 160E was built for racing, but it's not just for the steepest and rowdiest tracks around.
Great feeling suspension that blends lots of good characteristics
All around handling
Flip chips that offer a real and useful change
Slacker head angle could improve performance on steeper terrain
The 450mm seat tube may prevent some riders from running longer travel dropper posts
