BICYCLES

TREK Émonda SL 6 Disc

This bicycle can deal with the toughest mountains, the steepest descents, the tightest curves and the fastest sprints.

The hydraulic disc brakes have great breaking power and control regardless of the type of road and the weather conditions.

Just like the other Émondas, it is designed to be the lightest and fastest in its category.

BH CORE GRAVELX CARBON 2.6

BH Core Gravelx Carbon 2.6

So lightweight, that you won’t believe that it’s an e-bike. Its frame is made of carbon, with the technology used in the frames of BH’s high-end road bike range.

This bike has a significant autonomy (165Km and up to 220Km) thanks to a combination of low motor consumption and a 540Wh battery.

The Core display is fully integrated into the stem and it features a button that allows you to increase or reduce the assistance level, through an LED colour system.
