HEAD Bikes is rolling out a new spring line of e-bikes, among others, to round out its offerings in 2022. For many, HEAD is synonymous with tennis and skiing – which makes sense.
The company makes top-tier equipment for those sports that see wide use among athletes that frequent the Olympics, world cups, and tournaments worldwide.
HEAD, not to be confused with HED Cycling Products, well-known for the ultra-light carbon wheels, has also been making bikes for years. With the new 2022 lineup, HEAD has options for kids, commuters, mountain bikers, and roadies, along with a healthy run of electric bikes to fit every lifestyle.
Sold exclusively in North America by Cycle Force Group, several 2022 e-bike models are available for pre-order, including the E-Terrain, E-UP2, Groove-E.
The E-Terrain is the electric-assisted version of the Terrain line of gravel bikes that will include five different models, including the E-Terrain. Only the E-Terrain is currently available for pre-order.
The E-Terrain features 700c tires, disc brakes, and the Shimano Tiagra 4700 10-speed drivetrain. It also comes equipped with an integrated mid-drive 200-watt motor and a 36-volt battery with a range of approximately 35 miles and a six-hour charge time.
The E-UP2 is a hardtail 27.5-inch mountain bike rig with an integrated 350-watt motor and a 48-volt battery that can shred up to 40 miles of single track on one charge. It comes with an 80-millimeter travel SR Suntour XCT 30 fork and a Shimano Deore 10-speed drivetrain.
The Groove-E is a commuter suited for trips to the office or store or just cruising around town. Like the other 2022 E-bikes from HEAD, it features an integrated battery with a 40-mile range and a 350-watt motor. It includes lights, fenders, and a rear rack to help haul whatever you need and stay safe on the streets. Additionally, 60 millimeters of suspension up front will help smooth out the ride.
The E-Terrain costs MSRP $3,800. The E-UP2 goes for 3,300, and the Groove-E costs $3,000.
Aside from the new bikes, HEAD also has several other models in the works set to release soon. They include the Berm hardtail mountain bike, UP2 full-suspension mountain bike, and the Pava road bike. HEAD also plans to release belt-driven models soon.
The spring collection will be available to test ride at the Sea Otter Classic from April 7 through 10.
