Alex Evans

Exceptional performance across a broad range of terrain types makes the Megawatt one of the best electric bikes currently available

  1. well specced
  2. Goldilocks geometry figures
  3. comfortable and efficient climbing
  4. frugal but powerful Shimano motor
  5. easy to set up
  1. Low bottom bracket caused frequent pedal strikes


Alan Muldoon

Designed around the compact Shimano EP8 motor, the aptly named Megawatt shares a strikingly similar profile, right down to the counter- rotating four-bar suspension, with the acoustic version that has racked up three consecutive EWS World Championship titles.

  1. Superbly tuned suspension
  1. XT brakes are grabby
