This is what Ridley have to say about the Elykx
We’ve created the Elykx 29er hardtail e-MTB with real adventurers in mind. Incorporating our proven technology, the Elykx is stiff yet agile and handles like a normal top-level MTB. Giving it that next level of personalization is the integrated Shimano STEPS e-MTB (E8000) technology. Its intuitive support curve responds to your pressure on every pedal stroke to deliver just the right amount of support. It also allows you to choose your power-assist levels, so its delivered range of custom-adjusted smooth steady power very closely matches your specific demands.
What you will feel when riding the Elykx is simply stronger and more technically adept. Everything feels that much easier as you remain in the flow from beginning to end.
STEPS e-MTB is lightweight yet powerful, so you can ride longer and farther. Explore trails that were previously out of reach. Come home feeling fresh enough to spend quality time with friends and family. It’s also the ideal bike when it comes to levelling the playing field when riding with others. Simply adjust its STEPS settings remotely via Bluetooth from your smartphone to match your strength and skills to your riding buddies.
Its internal cable routing keeps them away from the effects of inclement weather. Disc brakes deliver reliable stopping power no matter the trail conditions. Stealth dropper compatibility allows you to attack the trails that much harder.
Compatible with both mechanical and electronic shifting.
Elykx C is our ultimate e-MTB, with full carbon layup. It is for those who demand only the best! It delivers that natural feel of a pro MTB but with that extra support perfectly tailored to your riding style. The ideal bike to take to one of the fast-growing e-MTB category races, or to play hard with your buddies.
