Bianchi announced a family of three new e-bikes, dubbed E-SUV. Key features include a full carbon frame and rear triangle, integrated front, side, and rear lights, integrated mudguards, and a huge capacity 720 Wh battery. Suspension travel is 150-160mm on all models, and it utilizes the high-powered Shimano E8000 motor system.

Bianchi has an extensive range of e-bikes and mountain bikes, and added a new e-MTB to the list – the E-SUV. With three models all using 150 – 160mm travel, it fits in to the all-mountain category… and even uses mixed wheel sizes on two models.
Bianchi reports that they began with three main areas of focus – design, integration, and function. Both the front and rear triangles are full carbon, and feature integrated lights and mudguards. The front light design wraps around to add side visibility for extra safety.
The front-end control display can show information such as GPS and battery level.
Bianchi uses a massive 720 Wh battery in the downtube, along with a unique cooling system using a front intake and rear exhaust. Shimano’s powerful E8000 motor handles drive duties.
An asymmetrical chainstay is used to prevent damage, improve aesthetics, and decrease noise from the chain hitting the frame.
