Scott E Sportster 2011 Electric Bike

Scott E Sportster Overview

The Scott E Sportster is an electric bike that is great for those who live in urban areas and are in need of supplementary power to get them to their destinations. The pedals can be used just like a normal bike and Scott has endeavoured to arrange the set up of the E Sportster so that it performs in exactly the same manner as its non-electric siblings. However, with an electric motor mounted to evenly distribute weight and provide balance you can always take advantage of an extra boost when you most need it.

The Scott E Sportster’s electric motor is mounted on the bottom bracket. Because balance is very important to a bike it has been placed so that its weight does not have a significant impact on the way the bike handles. To complement the motor you have other high-end features, including disc brakes from the Avid Elixir range which feature 160mm rotors and can bring the bike to a safe halt in most conditions. There are nine gears on this bike so both your pedal power and the electric motor can be put to good use and a little extra help will let you tackle steep hills without leaving you swimming in sweat or rubbing sore muscles for the next few days.

The Scott E Sportster benefits from a subtle black design and a host of extra touches, which you will not find elsewhere. You get a light on the front and mudguards covering both wheels that will make you visible when the darkness falls and also keep you free from splashes and mud if the weather takes a turn for the worse. This is an ideal commuter’s bike, as it does not feel hindered by its electric motor when it comes to handling or performance.
