The Scott Sub Tour eRide 30 USX is a sleek and stylish unisex town bike. The wide step-through frame makes for easy mounting / dismounting and the Bosch drive will give you all the assistance you need.
The Scott Sub Tour eRide 30 has the Bosch ActiveLine Plus motor. It delivers up to 50Nm of torque, just when you need it most. It’s quiet, very smooth and free of resistance when you’re pedalling without the assistance. There are 4 levels of selectable assistance via the Purion control on the handlebars to let you choose the best balance of range and power for your ride.
The Bosch PowerTube has been around for a couple of years now. It weighs in at just 2.8kg and is one of the lightest batteries on the market, further reducing its impact on the overall feel of the bike. Despite its modest design, it still packs impressive capacity – the 400Wh on offer should be more than enough to power you through even the most demanding of rides. The battery is easy to remove and insert, popping out of the frame when unlocked. It can be charged on or off the bike.
The battery will give you a range of about 40 miles. This is not a ‘best case’ but is the average mileage that you should expect from the battery assuming mixed use of the levels of assist and a varying terrain.
The Scott Sub Tour eRide 30 has 9-speed Shimano gears with 11-34 tooth cassette. The brakes are Shimano hydraulic disc BR-M200 – very efficient and reliable. The handlebar stem is adjustable and the bike also features rack, mudguards, an integrated frame lock and bright LED lights that run from the main battery. The Schwalbe Energiser Plus tyres are 700 x 50c, so have a great combination of comfort and grip on the ride, plus the ability to tackle light trails and tracks.
The Scott Sub Tour eRide 30 USX is a very smart looking and understated urban e-bike. We think this is a great looking bike and very good value for money. Scott are very good at producing stylish looking bikes and they don’t skimp on the components. But don’t make your mind up until you’ve come in and tried it for yourself.
