Regular price£8,550.00
VAT included.

One of the lightest full power E-Bikes ever produced, the category redefining Moterra SL 1 combines as little as 19.7kg in weight with a full power 85Nm Shimano Ep801 motor and 600W battery to give a bike that handles like an SL E-Bike on the descents with no compromise to climbing speed or range. 

A real riders bike and sporting the perfect all round 160mm / 150mm travel combination, it features Mx wheels,  a head angle adjustable between 62.5' and 63.8', size specific chain stays and a set of geometry numbers that wouldn't look out place on a World Cup race bike. Forget timid, trail style SL bikes, this one is built to descend absolutely flat out, riding downhill like a proper enduro bike, but one that's ready to boost you back up for another lap.

The frameset is full carbon, using Cannondale's well established flex pivot platform to create a 4 bar suspension system while saving on weight, complexity and maintenance. Fox factory suspension sits both front and rear, while SRAM Code Silver Stealth brakes will slow the SL 1 down in a hurry when the time comes to scrub off speed. Combined with the all new SRAM XO T-Type transmission drivetrain, this spec is almost unupgradable out of the box.

From World championship wins to the award winning BASE college course, we've experienced and forged it all. Our evolution led to the formation of Tweed Valley Guides and now Tweed Valley Bikes too, allowing us to help you buy the right equipment, and be able to ride with you on the best trails and help you learn how to get the most out of it. Our shop has genuinely grown from the trail.
