A big apology to all shuttles and lifts. The Kenevo Expert has just made you redundant. This is the bike that lets you climb the longest and hardest climbs and still gives you enough power to shoot down the longest and hardest descents. The Kenevo Expert is, hand on heart, the most powerful eMTB in the world, thanks to its 180 mm suspension travel with Rock Shox suspension elements and its completely new frame with sidearm design. Combined with the market-leading 700 Wh battery, the Kenevo knows no limits.
The completely redesigned frame of the Kenevo consists of Specialized M5 aluminum alloy, has the asymmetrical sidearm design and the rear end has a progression and wheel elevation curve that lets the bike glide confidently through the most demanding trails.
Yes, it is a double bridge fork. When Specialized the original Kenevo, they realized that a lot of bikers had built a double bridge fork on their Kenevos - what an awesome bike! So when they redesigned the Kenevo, they decided to use a Rock Shox Boxxer with 180 mm of travel. Absolute steering precision and control on the downhill tracks.
The custom 2.1 motor represents the current zenith of e-bike motor technology. The new motor is more efficient, 15% smaller and 11% lighter than its predecessor. It has many details that no other e-bike can offer, such as instant support, excellent temperature management, two freewheels that decouple the motor and its transmission when you reach the top speed of the bike. Furthermore, the engine can deliver its power quietly, smoothly and constantly - even under full load. This turbo bike has Specialized 700 Wh battery from their M2 series. This is seamlessly integrated into the frame and can be removed in seconds with an Allen key.
