Multi-day commutes on a single charge, comfortably.

The S-Electro Diamond Step is a commute focused electric assisted sport bicycle. Whether you are commuting to work and back or just out for weekend cruises, the Diamond Step does so in comfort thanks to the 27.5" Plus tyres and suspension fork. Accessorize with panniers and fenders, and you can commute or even tour all year round with the Diamond Step. The low standover frame of the S-Electro Diamond Step means that even if you are wearing a suit, or skirt, its easier to mount. A powerful Shimano EP8 motor and super high capacity 720Wh battery completes the very capable, very fun S-Electro eBike and gets you there with less effort. Multi-day commutes on a single charge is nothing to brag about, unless your bike can't do it. Ours can.

Hydro formed step down frame

S-Electro Diamond Step features a double butted hydro-formed alloy frame with integrated motor mount and internal battery. The step in the frame is designed for improved clearance during use - easier mounting as well as a more comfortable bike to use in traffic. Hydro forming means that the frame can have thinner sidewalls, complex shapes and curves that makes it stronger and lighter than comparative alloy frames with regular tubing. Hydro forming is the process of forcing tubing into a negative mold with internal pressurized oil and or water, resulting in stronger - lighter tubes. The combination of oversize downtube and hydro forming, makes for a very strong frame.

Drive system, power and display.

S-Electro Diamond Step is designed around a Shimano Steps EP8 motor. This motor is paired to a high capacity 720Wh internal battery giving the Step an unrivalled range of pedal assistance. The Shimano LCD display is intuitive and easy to use, also indicating battery levels and shows all info needed for the electric system.

WHY IT’S BEST / KEY FEATURES

  5. The suspension fork is easy to set up and a great quality fork that does an excellent job at smoothing out bumpy terrain.

ENGINEERING NOTES.

STEPDOWN FRAME

The S-Electro Diamond Step's most noticeable feature is the unusually slanted top tube. This design feature is to improve stand over clearance and make swinging a leg over the bike easier, also perfect for people wearing suits or skirts.

Rockshox Recon Gold RL Suspension fork

A Rockshox Recon Gold RL 120mm fender ready suspension fork offers great damping and smooth movement with very little break away stiction. The Recon Gold is light, easy to set up for specific rider requirements and the benchmark in this class.

GEOMETRY

Geometry on the Diamond Step has been designed with focus first and foremost on commuting in comfort, and secondly on pedaling efficiency. Getting there quickly is only fun if you can be comfortable doing it.

COMPONENT CHOICES

         

The S-Electro Diamond Step is fitted with purpose chosen commute orientated components. This means that more than giving you the most possible bike for your money, the Step will also offer full system synergy - where the whole discipline of commuting is considered, and the result is even better than the sum of the parts. A 34t front chainring, and Deore 11 speed rear derailleur is matched to a 11-51t wide range cassette, offering excellent climbing and top speeds.

TUBELESS READY DUROC 35 WHEELS WITH 27.5" + TYRES

SUNRingle Duroc 35 wheels are strong and relatively lightweight, and is tubeless ready from the box. Factory pre taped rims mean that you only have to add sealant and valves along with tubeless tyres and you're good to go. The 27.5" + Tyres adds traction and comfort and as a result, helps to reduce fatigue on longer rides.

INTERGRATION FOCUS

The Diamond Step is focused on integration from the get-go - Internal battery, internal cables, integrated motor mount, front and rear fender ready, pannier rack mounts and even features cable routing for rear lights.
