The hydro-formed alloy body is featured in four sizes and includes a Shimano display screen that offers ride information as well as enabling the three pedal-assist setting provided.
Silverback bikes, based in Germany, has introduced a new ebike variant to the S-Electro collection. The Metro is a sleek bike designed for pleasure and convenience. It has Shimano components, an inbuilt bike lock and fork suspension. The S-Electro city pedal-assist ebike, according to Silverback, was created to transport cyclists where they want to go while being comfortable. It has a unique hydro-formed alloy structure, rack mounts for cargo hauling, front and back guard mounts, and a high riding profile for better visibility in traffic.
In addition, an inbuilt back-wheel lock connected to the seat frame has been provided for safekeeping throughout rides. Based on assist amount, riding style and environment experienced, the locked and detachable Shimano E8035 504-Wh battery located in the down tube is said to last for about 30 and 100 kilometers. A 250-W Shimano Steps E7000 mid mounted engine with 60 Nm of torque powers the three selectable pedal-assist options and while no numbers are offered in the statistics, being a European design likely implies that the engine help is limited to 25 km/h and there’s no accelerator on board.
For passenger versatility, there is a Shimano HG-50-10 10 speed derailleur chosen as it demands less servicing than those who have 11 or 12 gears and is ‘recognized for top notch switching’ and an SR Suntour shock absorber joint with 63mm of transportation and hydraulic shutdown should help ease out handful of the setbacks on the road trips. The Metro runs on surface 29-inch perfectly straight alloy rims with Schwalbe Marathon Plus tyres, Shimano Deore BL T6000 hydraulic brake system with 160mm rotors provide directional control, a Shimano E6100 screen is affixed to the Kalloy handlebar for trip data and to contact in support, and wiring is redirected from within for a clean uncluttered look. This bicycle is currently marketed on three color options and four different sizes for £2,799 and US $3,300.
