The AXcess ROC MTB is a hardtail mountain bike with good specification and the advantage of a 36V X 250watt rear wheel drive electric motor. The bike itself has 27.5″wheels and is equipped with 27 gears working through a Shimano T3000 Acera gear system with 9 gears on the rear and 3 on the chain wheel. So, you can understand that this bike is for the younger or fitter rider who wants to use the power when riding gets a bit difficult.
The motor in the rear wheel is activated by a cadence sensor. This is the type of sensor which not only responds to the power setting selected on the handlebar display, but also to the speed that the pedals are turning. The result of this is that you need to use the gears more than in some electric bikes as the pedals need to be turning at a reasonable speed to get good power. On hills with maximum power selected the bike glides up at a pleasing speed. The semi-integrated battery is 36V X 13Ah (468Wh). and constructed with good quality Samsung cells. The battery also has a USB port which can be used for phone charging or GPS attachment. The rider has a left hand mounted LCD display which displays odometer, trip,ride time, average and max speed along with current speed, power selection and battery state.
The bike has Suntour XCT forks with 100mm travel can also be locked out for hard riding or adjusted for a softer ride. The brakes are Tektro Hydraulic with 160mm discs front and rear. The Shimano T3000 gears are 3 X 9 selected with Acera Rapidfire plus gear selectors left and right. Mudguards and other accessories can be fitted at the time of purchase or at a later date.
