KTM Macina Style XT 11 CX5 Electric Bike (2018)
The Macina Style XT 11 CX5 is brand new for 2018 and features Bosch’s fully integrated 500Wh PowerTube.
Designed for practical, comfortable riding over a wide variety of terrain, the Style is indeed a great example of the next generation of e-bikes. It boasts stunning good looks thanks to the new PowerTube and semi-integrated motor. Bosch’s Performance CX drive is the highest torque motor produced by Bosch and delivers unrivaled power. This e-bike is an outstanding performer in every respect, being both powerful on hills, and forgiving on the flat.
Long gone are the days when electric bikes looked clunky and ugly! The Macina Style XT 11 CX5 is a true sports utility vehicle. Great for commuting or leisure riding, the Style takes in forest trails, canal paths or the less than smooth UK road network with ease. Those climbs, and accelerations away from tricky junctions aren’t a problem as power is delivered by the powerful Bosch CX drive system. Handling is superb, and comfort is assured.
The Macina Style XT 11 CX5 comes equipped with a top of the range 11-speed Shimano Deore XT T8000 Shadow Plus derailleur with rapid fire shifters. Changing gear is effortless and precise, just when needed. Suspension is via a pair of Suntour NCX-E air forks that absorb every bump and hollow with ease. There’s lockout available also for harder surfaces for greater efficiency. The ride is ultra comfortable, yet sporty. Designed with the rigours of day to day use, the Style bikes come fully equipped. Front and rear mudguards ensure a clean arrival. The rear carrier is capable of carrying more than ample loads. It uses the Racktime Snap-IT system for easy on and off attachment of luggage. Hassle free, with no awkward clips or Velcro requiring fastening. High powered Busch & Müller lights both front and rear enhance safety and visibility.
The Intuvia display with walk assist function is mounted unobtrusively, centrally on the bars, providing all rider information. Schwalbe Energizer Plus tyres with anti-puncture lining set on Ambrosia rims ensure a good level of puncture resistance at all times. The addition of a very nice Selle Royal saddle ensures the Style is an extremely comfortable ride, enhanced further by Ergon grips with barends. Shimano XT shifters and XT brakes are high end components and complement the Style perfectly.
The Macina Style XT 11 CX5 is a top of the range trekking e-bike with top level components for an extremely high quality ride.
