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

Yeti 160E T1 - In our big 2022 eMTB group test 2022

Rudolf Fischer

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

  • Near-perfect spec

  • None

Yeti 160E T1 review

Alex Evans

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

  • Well-considered geometry

  • 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

Yeti 160E T1 review: great handling, suspension, cornering, comfy - MBR

Danny Milner

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.

Field Test: 2022 Yeti 160E - The All-Rounder E-MTB

Henry Quinney

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
