Berria Bikes has introduced its latest all-mountain eBike in the form of the Berria Mako Hybrid GT, a 151mm travel eMTB powered by a Polini Motor capable of delivering 90 Nm torque and 400% assistance. The frame is composed of Berria’s own HMR2X carbon, a composite incorporating a reinforced “Mach R” resin said to improve vibration damping. There are seven models to choose from and three sizes available, with pricing starting at € 6,899.

Berria say the Mako Hybrid GT is their lightest eMTB to date, though we are still waiting to hear exactly what the claimed weights are. Let’s assume it is at least lighter than the Mako Hybrid HP, given that it boasts a full carbon frame and a Polini mid-drive motor that is over 400g lighter than the Bafang motor that powers the other eBikes in the Spanish brand’s lineup.
It is their first eBike to be powered by the Polini E-P3+ MX, a 2,950g motor that delivers up to 90 Nm torque and a peak power of 600 W. It offers up 5 levels of assistance ranging from 30% in Touring mode, right up to 400% in Race Mode. Polini aren’t quite mainstream within the eMTB world just yet, but their motors are raced by the Fulgur Team at E-EWS events.
The Berria Mako Hybrid GT is available at no fewer than seven price points, starting at €6,899 for the GT 6, topping out at €12,199 for the GT LTD.3 that boasts Rock Shox Ultimate Level suspension components, the XX1 AXS wireless electronic shifting drivetrain from SRAM, and Zipp 3Zero Moto Carbon wheels. All run the same HMR2X Carbon frameset, and are available in Small, Medium and Large frame sizes, covering rider heights from 160cm to 198cm.
Reach comes in at 435mm, 465mm and 495mm for the Small, Medium and Large frame sizes, while chainstay length is maintained at 454mm for each. The Mako Hybrid GT has two geometry configurations thanks to a flip-chip positioned at the seat stay-rocker interface.
In the “Touring” Mode in which it is shipped, the head angle sits at 64.8 degrees with the BB drop at 33mm, with rear wheel travel at 146mm. Flipping its orientation puts the bike into its so-called “Race” mode, in which the head angle goes steeper to 65.2 degrees, the BB is raised to a drop of 27mm, and the rear wheel travel is boosted to 151mm.
