Forme has launched its latest road e-bike: the Thorpe E.
Due to arrive in stock on 22nd July, the Thorpe E aims to deliver a ride that feels “as near to a normal ride experience and possible with zero to minimal compromise.”
Forme stated: “The Thorpe E-Road allows you to reconsider your expectations from a bike and re-evaluate your own ability, by enabling you to ride further and faster on epic hilly routes or with faster group rides that you never thought would be possible.
“The four power levels offer up to 400W of assistance, combined with two chainrings for a wider gear range, giving you the turbo boost you are looking for on the climbs. Once over the top of the climb and on the descent or sprinting accelerating over 15mph the drive unit and freewheel disengage seamlessly maintaining the comfort, steering and confidence expected from a carbon, endurance road bike.”
The handling is further supported with a lower centre of gravity, optimal frame stack and reach, clearance for tyres up to 30mm and 12mm thru axles front and rear for fast responsivity.
It also possesses the Fazua Evation system – said to be one of the quietest, lightest and most compact systems on the market – which has a combined weight of 4.6kg distributed across the lower, central area of the bike.
