Good test. I just bought a Rail 3 weeks ago and love it. EMTBs are rad. Don't worry about getting one (if you have the cash). Join the fun!

I found that temperature also had an impact on battery longevity. 45-degrees F and cooler had me running on the reserve eco mode where on a more temperate day, I'd have 2-3 bars of battery life. Also, spinning at a higher cadence seemed to stretch out the batter life in general.

I would have personally loved to set up every bike we tested with a 29 front 27.5 rear combo! How are you getting along with the 29' Levo now vs your previous Sight VLT?

You should do a 29" comparison and then a 27.5" comparison. Ive owned a 27.5' Sight VLT and now a Levo 29' and they are day and night different. I think mainly due to the wheel size. I think 27.5" feels snappy and fun on these heavier bikes.

No doubt the growth of e-MTB will continue to be divisive for some time while simultaneously increasing in popularity. With this in mind, I see a long term battle coming to define where e-MTBs belong. OHV trails are currently the only "no brainer" option for e-MTB in the US.

Additionally, we MTBers are the least organized when it comes to land access and there is a large disconnect between the collective "industry" (which is heavily marketing/pushing the "emerging market" of e-MTB ) and advocacy groups (which lobby for our access and trail development on public/FS/NP lands).

Some interesting discussion..

I don't necessarily think that they are 2 different sports, but they do appeal to different groups. The traditional bike riders tend to enjoy the suffering a bit. The ebike takes away that suffering. It makes things more accessible to more people.....more

Why we’re testing e-bikes: money.

The AMA is the appropriate governing body and GNCC is the perfect series for e-MTB events. Makes more sense than the UCI in my opinion.

Also, seeing that Vital green Deity sticker front and center got me thinking... Howsabouta Deity Vital colab bar in Vital green on black with the Deity D on one side and the Vital power button on the other? Just a small batch couldn't hurt? Three rises including the Dirt height?
