Revisiting a design that has been around for a couple of years, the ST1 Limited has upgraded features making it a snappy road bike with high quality Shimano Deore XT components that's a go fast bike. I really like the clean hinged cover for the frame integrated battery which is removable; a handy feature for charging. Note the higher amp hour charger. The direct drive motor is fairly heavy at 16 lbs but again, it's designed to be a speedier version of the ST1. The Shock Stop stem is an interesting option that helps dampen road shock with the non suspension carbon forks that come with the ST1 Limited. Like that blue color, too! The Stromer ST1 Limited Edition is a limited run (only 399 produced) speed pedelec with premium integrated lights from Supernova and Toplight, Aluminum fenders, rear carry rack from Racktime and Magura hydraulic disc brakes. High end Shimano Deore XT drive train with nine sprockets geared for 28+ mph riding speeds, comfortable Ergonomic locking grips from Ergon, custom Carbon fiber fork with sturdy 15 mm thru-axle. Offers smooth, silent, pressure sensitive pedal assist activated with a TMM4 torque sensor, four power levels, two regen levels and integrated regenerative braking via the right lever. One of the heavier electric road bikes I've tested at ~60 lbs, weight is balanced across the frame and kept low for improved handling, charger uses a dongle to connect to the battery that could get lost easily, chain stays are extra wide and I've clipped them while pedaling.
