Boost-Standard Fork

What is right for the rear wheel is even more important at the front wheel - because steering precision matters. This is why STEVENS uses suspension forks and hubs with extra wide axle spacing for this bike. These 110mm of axle spacing are called "Boost" or "Plus" and stand for lots of added lateral stiffness plus space for extra wide studded tires.

Boost Rear Axle Spacing

This bike adheres to the "Boost" standard with 148 mm axle spacing. And there are good reasons for that. Rear wheel stiffness increases by 20 % which is especially beneficial in large 29" wheels. And there is more space for voluminous studded tires to give you more control and fun an the trail.

Rearshock Development

Diffferent purposes in different terrain require different ride properties. This is why every fully rear triangle receives a specific setup from STEVENS' engineers to meet the respective bike's requirement for optimum performance. Firm for minimum power loss in the marathon with lots of comfort for long distance riding with a linear characteristic curve and mind-soothing reserves for hard hits.

Dropper Post

Optimum seating level for best drivetrain efficiency. Push the button: saddle down for best clearance on technical descents. Push the button: saddle up … this could go on forever - and on some technical trails the dropper post remote will be actuated more often than the front derailleur shift lever. Experts for fun and safety alike agree: Very rarely has an innovation meant so many convincing advantages and so little disadvantages like a dropper post with infinitely adjustable seat height.

500 Wh Battery

This will decide success or failure of e-mobility. That's why STEVENS uses batteries with a huge 500 Watt-hour capacity in all its top-notch pedelecs for up to 215 km of range (according to the manufacturer, please refer to the Bosch range calculator for more exact results). This is possible even without a weight penalty: Compared to the old PowerPack 400, the new Bosch PowerPack 500 is just 100 grams heavier. This huge "fuel tank" is our premier recommendation for pedelec riders who don't shy away from the hilliest of itineraries.

Hydroforming

Using water pressure aluminium tubes are transformed from their original round shape into their ideal shape determined by STEVENS engineers and designers.

4-piston disc brakes

4-piston disc brakes

The demanding riders of high-end MTBs and touring e-bikes - with or without "E" support - are satisfied with nothing less than the most powerful hydraulic disc brakes in terms of braking performance and riding safety. They have 4 pistons per caliper instead of 2, and their larger brake pads can withstand much more heat, making them almost immune to fading (less friction due to heating).

Tapered Steerer / Tapered Headtube

Fork shaft (or steerer tube) and head tube are tapered, meaning their diameter increases from top to bottom resulting in a conical shape. The diameter needs to be bigger at the bottom since this is where higher stress is applied - especially when the bike has a higher total weight due to luggage or an e-drive and battery. Also tapered steerers feature a smoother force transfer (like forces caused by hard braking) to the downtube than forks with a continuous 1 1/8" diameter.

Abus YourPlus™

Abus YourPlus™

One key, any number of locks - the Abus "YourPlus™" program makes it possible to get keyed-alike locks with Plus lock cylinder. This is practical especially with e-bikes, as there are several locks on the bike: on the battery, as a frame lock and optionally an additional lock for connecting the bike to a fence or the like. Thanks to Abus YourPlus™ they can all be operated with a single key.

Triple Butted, Double Butted

Meaning a frame tube has three or two different wall thicknesses along its length. Triple butted (TB) is the usual technology with STEVENS high-quality frames.
Tubes with different wall thicknesses are optimally adjusted to certain ways of manufacturing or to withstand specific loads. Where the highest loads occur or where tubes are welded, walls are the thickest. Butted tubes allow frame weight to be lower by several hundred grams.

Speed sensor integrated in the dropout

Speed sensor integrated in the dropout

This view is only available when the rear wheel is removed - otherwise the sensor, which gives the e-bike drive system the decisive information about the current speed, is perfectly integrated and well protected in the rear left dropout. The not so rare error that the incorrectly positioned spoke magnet slows down the motor support is thus combated very effectively.

QR15 Front Thru-Axle

"15" stands for the diameter in millimeters, "QR" for quick release. Combined they are the most useful method to fix the front wheel to the (suspension) fork. With convincing advantages: high stiffness, precise positioning of the brake disc and super-easy handling. So STEVENS specs almost all its mountain bikes and even high-quality trekking bikes, cross bikes and pedelecs with a thru-axle. Additionally, especially with 29" MTBs axle spacing is increased from 100 to 110 mm which makes the design even stiffer.

E-thru Rear Axle

E-thru Rear Axle at E-Cayolle

This abbreviation stands for Shimano's thru-axle standard for rear stays that integrates a thread into the dropout. As a result, the 12mm thru axle provides outstanding rear triangle stiffness and utmost precision in brake disc alignement to prevent annoying brake rub.

Smooth Welded

Additional step in welding. The first, rippled weld, typical for aluminium, is covered with a second smoother weld. This not only improves looks but also lowers the risk of notches in this spot, which makes the frames more durable.

Versatile cable routing

We keep the cable routing on our bikes as versatile as possible so you can ride your bike like you want to. There are wide and therefore easy to reach cable ports in the frame to insert shift or brake sleeves, Di2 cables or even no sleeves at all - there are the appropriate cover plugs for all of this.

Chain Stay Protector

Now you can tackle any downhill ramp without worry: The specially fitted chain stay protector prevents the chain stays of STEVENS carbon fullies from getting damaged by a slapping chain.
