The ever-popular Turbo Levo range is now available in hardtail form and uses Specialized’s own 1.2 E, custom Rx Street-tuned motor for smooth and quiet assistance on the trail. Up front, you’ll find 100mm of travel from the SR Suntour fork, and an agile aluminium frame. Great for those who want a bit of assistance on steeper hills, or just want a bit of added wow factor to their trail riding.
Best full-suspension MTB electric bike: Trek Rail
Predictable assistance and smooth motor engagement are what make the Trek Rail range stand out from its rivals. With a long-battery range (between 33 and 50 miles) and enduro levels of suspension travel (150mm rear, 160mm front), Trek has outdone itself with an engaging and exciting e-MTB. Bosch Performance Line motors and batteries are used for an unrivalled electric experience on the trail, while the 12-speed drivetrain offers plenty of range for even the steepest climb.
