A true sports fan is the Focus throne pulses Speed 10G XT – which already makes the first look at the powerful E-bike clear. Full suspension, wide tires and sport-oriented features show the mountain genes. Fired it is the new Impulse-speed motor, a proprietary development from the house of Derby Cycle .

The combination of a sporty mountain bike and brisk 45er engine raises the essential question: For what purpose this was E-bike developed?Clearly: For the fleet tour the office – for example. Therefore, the full suspension is not only comfort element, but a suspension, which positively to the driving characteristics of the S-pedelec effect: The throne is in sports, but safe and comfortable in handling.

For this purpose it accelerates nimbly and continuously. However, the motor from about 35 km / h forfeits at liveliness. A more powerful vote would go but according to Focus on the expense of his life. By the way: Unpaved roads and narrow trails are not for the Focus throne pulses Speed 10G XT – an S-pedelec must not in the woods or on the bike path.
