Scott e-Sub 10

Scott E-SUB 10 Electric Bike

The Scott E-SUB 10 is a high-end electric bike that is back for the 2011 season with a stylish design, safety oriented set up and useful electric motor that can supplement your pedal pushing with more power when the hill is too steep. It is the most striking model in the E-SUB range thanks to its green design. The lights on the front and rear will keep you visible whenever you choose to ride and you will not have to affix extra lighting yourself. This all comes at a price but for the modern urban rider it might be a suitable alternative to standard bikes.

Adding an electric motor to a bike can cause all sorts of trouble. The extra weight and its placement invariably alter the centre of gravity and although the motor will work to give you more power, it can hamper the handling. Scott has taken this into consideration and so positioned the motor on the E-SUB 10 so that it does not impinge upon the nimbleness or responsiveness of the bike, which is a real boon. Although it is not completely in the same league in this respect as other bikes, it comes closer than most.

The style of the Scott E-SUB 10 is worth noting because it comes from a range of bikes, which have a classic elegance coupled with forward thinking tech. A green paint job with white rims, saddle and handlebars gives it a fun look and the inclusion of lighting on the front and rear puts it at the top of the class. You can mount a rack for storage whilst cycling but this is an extra.
