180kg gross vehicle weight

180kg gross vehicle weight

The e-bikes with the "Plus" suffix are allowed to weigh 180 kilograms, including rider and luggage. Enough for even the strongest types and most demanding tasks. The frames are designed for this load - and put to the acid test by the experts of the 'Zedler – Institut für Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit'.

29/27.5" wheels

29/27.5

29" wheel on the front and 27.5" on the rear provide even more trail fun. While the larger front wheel provides more grip, better rollover behavior and smoothness, the smaller rear wheel gives more space, more acceleration and above all more agility in tight corners. The so-called mullet bikes are very much in vogue.

Dropper Post

Dropper Post

Optimum seating level for best drivetrain efficiency. Push the button: saddle down for best clearance on technical descents. Push the button: saddle up … this could go on forever - and on some technical trails the dropper post remote will be actuated more often than the front derailleur shift lever. Experts for fun and safety alike agree: Very rarely has an innovation meant so many convincing advantages and so little disadvantages like a dropper post with infinitely adjustable seat height.

        GTF Geometry

        GTF Geometry

        The sportive GTF geometry of the STEVENS E-Inception series is fully designed for downhill-oriented performance. A long reach and a flat steering angle give the E-Fully more smoothness, which is positively noticeable in the downhill controllability of the E-MTB. A shorter head tube and a steeper seat angle provide more control on steep climbs. GTF stands for gas to flat, which means full speed with full control downhill.

        Dropouts with integrated pannier rack eyelets

        In collaboration with pannier rack specialists Tubus/Racktime STEVENS' engineers have developed a dropout that also serves as an elegant pannier rack mount. It not only looks fantastic, it also ensures that forces caused by luggage or large amounts of groceries are evenly transmitted inot the frame - resulting in a more stable and safer design.

            A practical stand at the rear of the STEVENS E-Inception bikes is not a must, but a welcome extra. That's why our engineers have installed an unobtrusive stand mount. On the FEQ models, a stand is standard equipment. On all other E-Inception models, it can be retrofitted without any problems and without sacrificing heel clearance on complex trails.

                "15" stands for the diameter in millimeters, "QR" for quick release. Combined they are the most useful method to fix the front wheel to the (suspension) fork. With convincing advantages: high stiffness, precise positioning of the brake disc and super-easy handling. So STEVENS specs almost all its mountain bikes and even high-quality trekking bikes, cross bikes and pedelecs with a thru-axle. Additionally, especially with 29" MTBs axle spacing is increased from 100 to 110 mm which makes the design even stiffer.

                  Up To 28 mm Tire Clearance

                  Even pro riders in the Tour de France already know that wider tires sometimes roll faster. And aren't it not those small back-roads with their sometimes questionable surfaces that are the most fun to ride? Those who often ride on roads with less than perfect pavement can prepare their road bike with up to 28 mm wide tires - and benefit from better comfort.

                  Up to 45 mm Tire Clearance

                  STEVENS engineers have fitted 40 mm wide tires as standard but have given the new gravel bikes even more clearance. So if you prefer even wider tires, you can retrofit up to 45 mm.

                  Tire clearance up to 47 mm (ATB+Pedelec)

                  Tire clearance up to 47 mm (ATB+Pedelec)

                  Those who are riding on rougher surfaces now can mount up to 47 mm wide tires to benefit from more comfort and flat protection that derive from their larger volume, and that can be ridden with lower pressure. Frame and fork are already prepared accordingly.

                      When you ride on roads with less than perfect surface, you can now mount up to 54mm wide tires - e.g. Schwalbe’s current no.1, the Marathon E-Bike Plus - and benefit from maximum comfort and flat protection provided by its extra large air volume, as it can now be ridden with even lower tire pressure. Frames and forks are already prepared to fit these wider tires.

                      Belt Drive

                      Belt Drive

                      A belt drive, as the name suggests, uses a drive belt instead of a chain to transfer power from the cranks to the rear wheel. Since the belt cannot be split like a chain the special STEVENS frame utilizes a splittable seat stay, but the advantages are convincing: lower weight, silent operation, significantly lower maintenance effort.

                        Rohloff E-14

                        The electronic Rohloff E-14 sets a benchmark for e-bike shifting. Combined with the e-shift function of the Bosch motor it offers a unique, fast and faultless shifting performance: One push of a button - the motor will immediately reduce power and the Speedhub will change gears. Hold the button and the hub shifts all 14 gears in three-gear steps at a time. And when stopping on a red light it will automatically shift to a pre-selected gear.

                        But not only the electronics, also the mechanics delights the rider: There are Speedhubs out there having run more than 100.000km. And there are thousands of everyday and long-distance riders who never ever want to use any other way of shifting again. Maintenance? Maybe one oil change per year - that's it.

                        S-Lite Aluminium Fork

                        This is what modern rigid forks look like: The straight fork legs and fork crown are made in one piece - this reduced the number of welds and guarantees highest stiffness and steering precision. Full-size mudguards and a low-rider pannier rack can be attached just as easily as an elegant head light bracket. The QR-15 thru axle version can additionally be made more safe against theft with the optional Pitlock system. And still the STEVENS S-Lite aluminium forks lives up to its name when put on a scale.

                          This bike becomes even more versatile when real mudguards are assembled - this threads on the frame and fork are there. Then a multi-layer wardrobe is sufficient to enjoy riding even in awful autumn or winter weather or working-out during a few extra commutes late in the year.

                            The most intelligent way of lightweight design for STEVENS engineers is to use carbon forks with 100% carbon fibers that run all way though from dropout to steerer tube in one single piece. This results in an amazing riding experience on and off-road: Lightweight, knife-sharp steering precision effortless climbing and maximum lateral stiffness even when combined with disc brakes.
