The Lightest Full-Power Mountain Bike Ever*
Moterra SL is the first 150mm trail bike to pack 85Nm of torque, 600W+ of peak output, and 601Wh of power into a machine weighing as little as 20.6kg /45.4lbs. Full-power fun meets lightweight agility – it’s in a class of its own.

What's all this SL about then?

High on Power, Low on Weight
Electric mountain bikes with this much power on tap have never been this light. The lightweight carbon fiber frame features our weight-saving FlexPivot technology and houses a custom battery that packs more watts per kilo than any other on the market. That unmatched power-to-weight ratio makes for one hell of a fun ride.

Full Boost
Power comes from a custom-tuned version of Shimano's EP801 drive unit – the lightest motor capable of the big power we were looking for. With 85Nm of torque and 600+ watts of max output, it brings big-time boost to the lightweight party.

Power a la Mode
We developed custom ride modes for Moterra SL, specially tuned for the kind of high-speed sessions this rig encourages. Four different levels of boost, easily adjustable on the fly, help you choose between maximum range, monstrous power, or your ideal blend of both. Whether mild or wild, your ride will be whatever you want it to be, no more and no less.

Heavenly Handling
At a glance, it looks kinda crazy – an adjustable head angle slack enough for a DH bike, the long reach and steep seat angle of a modern trail bike, suspension layout, and geometry fully customized by size – but when it all comes together, it absolutely rips.

Animated Suspension?
More than just weight-savers, our burly FlexPivot stays are also at the heart of our suspension design. By acting as a Horst pivot, it creates a true four-bar system, allowing our engineers to dial in the perfect suspension response for every input. The result? Incredible traction, confident braking, and a playful feel that just begs to be pushed harder.
