INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING
With internal cable routing you have the benefit of a modern clean look and the added benefit of preventing rust and fraying of your shift and brake cable, being internal also means your cables are protected while in storage or being transported on the car!
HYDRAULIC DISC BRAKES
Disc brakes provide you with better braking performance in all conditions, unlike rim brakes which can be heavily impacted by dust and water, disc brakes maintain control in all conditions. These brakes give you confidence that you’ll stop when you need to and with a hydraulic system you will have greater control and have better feedback through your levers, hydraulic systems aren’t prone to cable stretch and self adjust as your brake pads wear down – meaning you can focus on the riding!
MAHLE BATTERY & MOTOR
The rear hub MAHLE motor system X35+ offers 40 Nm of smooth and drag-free support and is powered by a 250Wh internal battery. The system is controlled by a one-button iWOC switch which is positioned on the top tube. Different colours of the switch indicate the support as well as the battery level.
