Novelties and Changes for the 2023 Season:
Shimano STEPS EP801 Cargo – More Than Just a System Update
With the EP801, Shimano catapults the e-mobility theme into a new dimension. All modules have been revised and equipped with new software. The top system impresses with a torque of 85 Newton meters. HP Velotechnik includes a compact color display (4.2 cm) with numerous bike computer functions.
As an exclusive shifting option in our modular system, we rely on the also newly introduced electronic 10-speed Cues Di2 derailleur. As with the previous EP8 system, the rugged Rohloff Speedhub is available as an optional hub gear, too.
The newest technologies from Shimano enable fully automatic gear changes for the first time in a derailleur drivetrain: The Autoshift system always selects the most efficient gear when riding. But it can do even more! The Freeshift technology detects braking operations: Parallel to the deceleration, the chain is shifted to a lower gear.
An ingenious additional feature is that the motor can be programmed with two very individually tunable profiles via an app. This means that the bike can be made ready for different areas of use or riders in a matter of seconds – simply at the touch of a button on the display.
We carefully chose the Cargo version of the EP801. The system makes it possible to get full power from the motor practically after the first pedal stroke. The maximum assistance ratio is a whopping 400 percent.
The new gear options based on the Shimano STEPS EP801 Cargo will presumably be delivered from November 2022 and start at an SRP of 3,250 € / $ 3,630 (Scorpion fs 26 Enduro: Shimano STEPS EP801 Cargo, Cues Di2 10-speed derailleur, 418 Wh battery).
