ION G16 EBOXX E14
What will the EMTB of the future look like? The EBOXX E14 is our answer to this simple question. Our entire experience of 23 years has been gathered here. Here historically grown braids are cut off. The derailleur system gives way to the durable GATES belt in combination with the almost indestructible ROHLOFF hub, which can even be shifted electrically under load in this bike. Everything on this bike is at its finest: GEOLUTION geometry, FOX chassis, multi-chamber down tube, BOSCH CX drive system with integrated battery and much more. Get the future of e-MTB´s on the trail today.
A short tap with the thumb is all it takes to engage the next gear in 180 milliseconds. Nobody shifts faster! A longer pressure changes three gears at once. The chassis in combination with the belt tensioner is designed in such a way that clean Anti-Squat values can be achieved and the bike can be pedaled neutrally.
Our GEOLUTION geometry perfectly complements the EBOXX concept – downhill as well as uphill. The already high subjective safety due to the long main frame, flat steering angle and central seating position are further enhanced by the low centre of gravity. Whether in high-speed trail sections at the traction limit or in breakneck steep sections – the EBOXX E14 intuitively tempts you to push your limits and drive harder and faster.
The groundbreaking design of the EBOXX E14 is only possible with a new down tube. It is manufactured specifically for NICOLAI by an innovative and very complex extrusion process. The massive and yet surprisingly light multi-chamber down tube made of 7000 aluminium is very torsionally stiff and integrates the BOSCH CX drive unit and the 500 Wh Intube battery visually and technically of high quality. If you want to fine-tune the geometry even more, you have further possibilities of engagement at the rear via different mutators and the length-adjustable truss struts.
The Rohloff transmission with its 526% ratio bandwidth naturally also contributes its part to the fact that you can master with the EBOXX-E14 just steep and technical climbs noticeably easier and more relaxed. The Gates Carbon Drive timing belt and a belt tensioner developed by us complete the concept of our innovative Enduro-E-MTB.
Because of its advanced system integration we only offer the EBOXX E14 as a complete bike.
The special feature of Float X2 is the adjustable damping, which is based on a double-tube system, as with Cane Creek. This allows the large oil volume and the oil flow to be controlled very well. In addition to the air pressure, high and low speed compression and traction stages can be set separately.
The award-winning 36 series offers the right model for every aggressive enduro rider to have great trail fun.
The Hope Tech 35W rims impress with a rim design optimized for 27.5 inch plus bike tyres. This is achieved by the production of 6061 T6 aluminium, a welded rim joint, a mouth width of 35mm for more support and higher traction as well as 3 hollow chambers. In addition, the increased wall thickness in the area of the rim bed of the loosened Tech 35W rim prevents distortion or cracks even with high spoke tension. By means of a tubeless kit, the wheels can be converted to the smooth-running and more puncture-resistant tubeless system. Hope Hoop wheels are spoked and centered by hand. This guarantees optimum concentricity and uniform spoke tension.
With a maximum torque of 75 Nm, the Performance Line CX is the powerful drive for ambitious and demanding eBikers. In eMTB mode you always get the power you need – from tour to turbo. Up to 300% perfectly dosed support, unbelievable dynamics and unique grip – together with the improved starting behaviour – optimally support you in every terrain. Progressive engine support automatically adapts to your individual driving style, no need to change support modes, allowing you to focus entirely on the trail.
The new electronic Rohloff E-14 sets standards for e-bikes. Shifting has never been more intelligent and comfortable. And all this in legendary Rohloff quality. In combination with the eShift function of Bosch eBike systems, city cyclists, extreme athletes and tour fans look forward to a uniquely fast shifting performance and a shift unit that can be operated error-free. A push of a button takes the drive load out of the system and the Rohloff E-14 switches. Hold down the button and the E-14 shifts every 14 gears in a fast sequence of 3. And when the traffic light stops, the system automatically shifts back into the approach gear. The most efficient and durable circuit for all mid-engined e-bikes.
So that the Rohloff E-14 is as reliable as all Rohloff products, the Rohloff SPEEDHUB 500/14 forms the basis.
The SPEEDHUB transmission has been proven for 20 years, is known for its reliability and tandem strength. It has proven for almost as long in e-bikes that it is the only durable option for mid-engines.
With 14 gears, a wide transmission ratio of 526% and the highest efficiency of all gear hubs, this transmission is ideal for e-bikes with the most powerful drives and S-pedelecs (45 km/h). With the Rohloff E-14, the SPEEDHUB is now controlled by electronics.
It consists of two components: the electronic shift unit on the handlebar and the shift control unit on the SPEEDHUB. To be prepared for the future, the Rohloff E-14 has Bluetooth LE. This is used to install updates, modify features and access apps.
The Bosch Intuvia Performance Display shows all gear changes of the E-14. And more. The Bosch eBike system synchronizes with the Rohloff E-14, which gives you the impressive advantage of shifting to the next gear with a slight push of a button. The secret behind it: As soon as you engage the gear change, the Bosch system takes load from the powertrain for a tiny moment and in 180 ms the new gear is engaged from the E14. No other circuit is currently faster.
The Rohloff E-14 achieves even more shifting comfort via Multi-Shift. This allows 3 gears to be shifted up and down in one sequence. Finally, Auto-Downshift: At the traffic light stop, the Bosch eBike system communicates with the Rohloff E-14 and automatically switches back to an individually selectable approach gear.
The clearly defined pressure point and maximum power make it the first choice of gravity and high-speed pilots. The 1-finger HC brake lever modulates the enormous braking power as desired. The HC brake lever and the pressure point adjustment provide the necessary ergonomics to have the brake perfectly under control even on the heaviest terrain. In hard enduro or downhill use, the additional braking power of 4 pistons offers fine dosing and maximum stability, adapted from Magura motorsport experience. Braking power does not have to be heavy. Carbotecture® SL brake handle and aluminium lever reduce the total weight. The 4-piston brakes are characterised by high thermal stability, which is achieved through optimum weight distribution. Optimum use of material where it is needed.
