Ideal Hillmaster E9 crossbar

Classic Hardtail E-MTB with 27.5 ” wheels and Shimano STEPS centre drive unit


One ex-demonstrator at the reduced price

The Ideal Hillmaster E9 E-MTB is a classic hardtail mountain bike designed for off road and on road use, and available in 2 frame sizes 44 & 48cm.   The core power unit of the bike is the Shimano STEPS centre drive unit, powered by a Shimano STEPS E6000 series motor with Shimano 36V X 14Ah (504Wh) battery which should give a good ride over hilly terrain on road like surfaces. Difficult or rocky terrain will reduce range as will very knobbly or soft tyres.


The rider also has a 9 speed 11 – 32T cassette operated by Shimano STEPS switch and Shimano Acera quick fire shifter.  For stopping power there are Shimano Hydraulic disc brakes with 160mm disc on the rear and 180mm disc at the front.


There is a wide range of ancillary equipment, such as mudguards which can be fitted to the bike for the owners choice. The Hillmaster is also available as a 29er in 44,48 & 52cm sizes
