Shimano's latest E-Bike motor the STEPS E7000, is the cycling giant's new mid-range electric mountain bike offering. It's light, compact and still packs a 500 watt power output to get up any mountain bike climb. Steve takes a closer look whilst out at the Roc d'Azur festival. In association with Shimano.

The focus upon aesthetics doesn't end there, as the 504 Wh lithium-ion batteries are available in external and internal options depending upon your mountain bike of choice. The new E7000 motor itself weighs in at a lightweight 2.8kg, and is centred upon the bottom bracket for optimum handling and control. It's a full 2 decibels quieter than the premium E8000 motor, which was already near silent. A narrow Q factor creates a natural pedalling feel, and the motor offers a compact and robust option for those who don't want to break the bank. As ever the E7000 continues Shimano's tried and proven three power modes: eco, trail and boost. All of these are able to be customised via the Shimano app, so that once you're out riding shifting between modes is easy and intuitive. It's no surprise that the Shimano STEPS system is becoming one of the industry benchmarks.
