The Macina Flite 11 from KTM is an innovative drop bar ebike for the 2018 season.
A true performance eBike, and a perfect cyclo-cross participant!
With a full road bike design in mind, the Macina Flite is a masterpiece of engineering. Exceptionally versatile, this drop bar beauty is both sporty and energetic. Ideal for both long or short commutes to work, the Macina Flite is equally at home on long, leisurely rides too. The gorgeous look of this gem is aided by the fully integrated Bosch PowerTube. Sitting neatly in the downtube, the 500Wh battery delivers immense range. Couple that with Bosch’s high torque Performance CX motor, and the result is a powerhouse that’s ready for huge adventures. A minimal Purion display on the bars provides both clear and concise information. It controls four levels of assist as well as a walk function.
The handlebars are slightly splayed in true cyclo-cross fashion, providing far greater stability than a conventional road bike. In addition, they sit slightly higher than a pure road bike too, providing a much more comfortable riding style for longer journeys.
KTM Macina Flite: Unique Design & Features for 2018
The Macina Flite is a unique performer. Aerodynamic rims come with DT Swiss 370 classic hubs, some of the most affordable, highest performing hubs on the market. A set of Schwalbe G-One allround, Microskin,40-622’s ensure minimal rolling resistance yet effective grip.
This highly specialist road bike comes with all the necessary equipment for practical and safe rides.
Weighing in at a mere 21.4kg, the Macina Flite is relatively light considering it’s 500Wh battery and Bosch motor. Thanks to a very nice 40mm travel headshock, handlebar vibration is minimal, ensuring ultra comfort at all times. The frame is made of light aluminium alloy hydroform and features a tapered steerer for strength and rigidity. Internal cable routing further add to the already pleasing aesthetics.
Available in matt black with glossy highlights, the Macina Flite has a very unique look and presence. There’s simply nothing quite like it on the market. If a drop bar road bike with range, power and longevity ticks all the boxes, then look no further.
