E-Inception AM 9.7.1 GTF – STEVENS 2023

E-Inception AM 9.7.1 GTF

Power, Performance, Pace
For maximum uphill performance

The top model of our multi-award-winning E-Inception all-mountain range gets an upgrade to Bosch's exclusive Performance Line CX Race Limited Edition drive unit for the 2023 model year. Designed for extreme performance in competition, it offers up to 400 percent of your own pedal power assistance combined with aggressive power delivery thanks to the new Race mode that is exclusive to the CX Race Limited Edition. The racing power is fed by a Bosch PowerTube battery pack firmly integrated into the frame. Whether long stages to and on the trail, technical uphill or alpine adventures - with its 750 Wh it offers endurance, power and reliability.

But it is not only the drive unit that is fully designed to meet the needs of demanding e-bike athletes. The lightweight SL HMF carbon frame of the E-Inception AM 9.7.1 GTF in elegant black combines the highest quality, race-proven components from the most renowned manufacturers. These include the finely responsing 150 mm Fox Factory suspension consisting of a 36 Float Factory fork and Float DPS Factory shock as well as Shimano's exclusive XTR racing groupset for the best possible shifting performance in all situations. Shimano's top of the range XTR 4-piston brakes with forged brake calipers provide plenty of stopping power, even in long downhill sections, and promise perfect control on the trail. And the Race Face Next-R wheelset with Schwalbe Magic Mary Evo tyres offers a balanced mix of agile handling, control and traction.

Carbon frame

The high-quality carbon SL HMF frame of the E-Inception AM 9.7.1 GTF is lightweight while offering optimised stiffness for best possible rider feedback and stability. With the downhill-oriented GTF geometry and its precise construction, it provides best control going downhill at top speed while allowing full bike control. To complement its performance on the trail, its matt black design with visible glossy carbon elements ensures a noble appearance with a lot of understatement.

Fox suspension

It is immediately recognisable: Fox's exclusive, gold-shimmering Kashima coating. It ensures silky-smooth responding damping components, a long service life of the components even under extreme conditions on the trail and it complements the matt black of the high-end carbon frame perfectly. On the E-Inception AM 9.7.1 GTF, it is used on the 36 Float E-Optimised fork, the DPS Factory shock and the Fox Transfer dropper seatpost.

Shimano XTR

XTR. These three magic letters are the dream of many mountain bikers, because they name Shimano's exclusive MTB race component group. It is lightweight, offers absolute competition performance and on the E-Inception AM 9.7.1 GTF it is used both in the form of the 12-speed groupset with RD-M9100-SGS rear derailleur and as the BR-M9120 4-piston brake system on the front and rear wheel.

Race Face cockpit

Maximum control is provided by the Race Face cockpit, finely tuned to the frame geometry, with Turbine-R stem and Next-R 800 millimetre carbon handlebar. It offers modern ergonomics, guarantees the best possible control on the trail with a low weight and underlines the luxurious appearance of the E-Inception AM 9.7.1 GTF.

USB-C charging socket

The USB-C charging socket integrated into the top tube can be used to supply smartphones, bike computers etc. with power which is supplied directly from the bike's battery. Never fear long days in the saddle again, desperately looking for the next power source for your mobile phone.

Integrated cable routing

With the Acros headset, the cables and wires for the rear derailleur, brakes, display and remote are routed directly from the handlebars into the head tube. This ensures a clean look of the frame and cockpit, and bushes on the trail have less chance of getting tangled up in the bike. In addition, the headset is equipped with end stops that prevent the handlebar, brake levers or the levers of the shifter and seatpost remote from damaging the top tube of the carbon frame in the event of a crash.

Bosch Performance Line CX Race Limited Edition

Based on the Performance Line CX drive unit and developed specifically for challenging e-MTB races and ambitious mountain bike athletes is Bosch's new Performance Line CX Race Limited Edition drive unit. Made to enable extreme performance in competition and race conditions, the drive unit allows very high acceleration out of corners, it offers superior uphill performance and an even more direct support of your own pedal power.

The Performance Line CX Race Limited Edition drive unit has a maximum torque of 85 Nm for powerful, enduring support. Sprints from a standing start and from low speeds after challenging sections or obstacles are easily possible, as is dynamic riding with high pedalling frequencies of up to 120 rpm. At the same time, the support is sporty-aggressive and extremely powerful in all riding situations.

This is made possible by the Race mode, which is exclusively available for the Bosch Performance Line CX Race Limited Edition and that was specially developed for use in e-MTB races and with the support of successful e-bike athletes. It offers stronger and more direct acceleration as well as a maximum support power of 400 percent of your own pedalling force. For even more power reserves, the Extended Boost known from the eMTB mode is integrated. This has been adapted for the Race mode and is available for even longer in order to be able to quickly tackle complex rock or root passages. The forward drive of the Performance Line CX Race Limited Edition is so vehement, especially in Race mode, that a precise riding technique and a high degree of bike control are required to exploit the full potential of the drive unit.

The new Hill Hold walk assistance prevents the e-bike from rolling back unintentionally when pushing on steep slopes and in difficult passages. This makes the e-bike easier and less energy-consuming to move, the rider is less tired and thus makes faster progress in the end. In tight and steep curves, Hill Hold can also be used to move the rear wheel of the e-MTB in a controlled manner.

Thanks to a revised housing design, weight has also been saved so that the Performance Line CX Race Limited Edition drive unit weighs only 2.75 kilograms. The reduced mass of the drive unit allows for a lower overall weight of the bike and thus improved handling, especially in fast and challenging corners, banked turns and on difficult trails.

The Performance Line CX Race Limited Edition drive unit supports Bosch's "The smart system" and offers intelligent networking and update functions for all system components. In addition to the drive unit, this also includes the Bosch 750 Wh battery, the new Kiox 300 display and the LED Remote.

If you want to create your very own uphill flow, you can utilise the Bosch eBike Flow app. With its help and full Bosch "The smart system" integration, the drive unit can be extensively customised. Fine-tuning the assistance levels, activity tracking, navigation and route planning - these are just some of the features that Bosch's third generation eBike system has to offer.
