Porsche has unveiled two e-bikes that reflect the brand’s timeless design and outstanding technical features.
Hot on the heels of the Taycan Cross Turismo, Porsche has unveiled two e-bikes: the Porsche eBike Sport and the Porsche eBike Cross.
Both feature a full-suspension carbon frame inspired by the lines of the Porsche Taycan, as well as the powerful, latest-generation Shimano motor and Magura high-performance brakes.
The Sport version has been designed for daily use, whether in the city or countryside, or on the way to work. It is kitted out with the new, powerful and ultra-compact Shimano EP8 motor, which provides motor support up to 25 km/h, as well as a Shimano electronic gear shifting system, to guarantee optimum performance.
Thanks to the Magura high-performance brakes that are integrated into the handlebars, the look is clean and compact, and the elegant design is emphasised by M99 LED lights from lighting specialist Supernova, which are embedded in the handlebar stem and aerodynamic seatpost. High-quality suspension components such as the Magura upside-down suspension fork and the Fox rear shock absorber, in combination with smooth-running tyres, provide a sporty and balanced ride on asphalt or gentle terrain.
The Porsche e-Bike Cross, meanwhile, has been designed for use off the beaten track. The powerful motor, newly developed by Shimano, demonstrates its full ability in difficult terrain and delivers maximum performance while maintaining a natural riding sensation. The Magura-MT Trail high-performance brakes have extra-large, heat-resistant brake discs that ensure optimum deceleration, while the mechanical Shimano XT 12-fold shifting system enables fast gear changes according to the rider’s needs and the terrain.
The hydraulically adjustable Crankbrothers Highline seat post ensures the seat can be quickly adjusted to varying degrees in order to find the perfect position, while the ergonomically designed handlebars guarantee full control at all times. They feature the Shimano colour display, which shows distance and range in real time, as well as speed. The clean design is rounded off by a full-suspension carbon frame, which perfectly combines the spirit of adventure with style.
Both models were inspired by the Porsche Taycan, with the wheels drawing inspiration from the naturally shaped carbon frame of the vehicle’s fly line. The elaborate design, developed by Studio F. A. Porsche, ensures optimum reflection of light.
Porsche has also developed a rear carrier for the newly unveiled Taycan Cross Turismo. Thanks to long wheel rails and a high payload of 50 kilograms, up to two e-bikes can be mounted and the tailgate can still be opened while loaded. The carrier can also be used universally for different types of bicycle and can be upgraded with an additional rail for a third bike if desired.
