Cannondale Moterra 2017
Cannondale 2017 Moterra – For ultimate ups and downs. Ridiculously good handling and proprietary integration of the ultimate drive system deliver an e-MTB experience like no other.
Cannondale Moterra 2017 is the ultimate all-mountain trail bike – 130mm of travel front and rear, with the go-anywhere traction and float of 27.5 wheels.
System Integrated Mount – Unlike the standard mounting nodes used by all the others, our proprietary Si motor mount positions the Bosch drive unit in the best place for optimal suspension performance and sweet handling.
Short and Sweet – The Si motor mount and Ai offset chainring give the Cannondale Moterra 2017 the shortest chainstays on the market for incredibly nimble handling and killer traction.
The lowdown – Unique battery integration delivers a super low center of gravity and ideal weight distibution for awesome agility and stability. Easy to wheelie over obstacles!
Properly Stiff – With their extra weight and power, a lot of e-mtbs feel flexy and imprecise. Cannondale Moterra 2017’s Torsion Box downtube, ECS-TC pivot thru-axle and wide 157mm rear hub give it a rock-solid feel for wicked handling and control.
Si Motor Mount – This proprietary Cannondale motor mount positions the Bosch drive unit in the best possible position. It allows ultra short chainstays and aligns the pivot so that suspension action is unaffected by motor and pedal torque, no pulleys or linkages needed!
Ai Offset Chainring – A custom Ai (Asymmetric Integration) chainring moves the chainline outboard by 6mm, creating space for ultra short chainstays with plenty of tire clearance, and lining up perfectly with the extra-wide, extra-stiff 157mm rear hub.
Torsion Box Downtube – To maximize frame stiffness and create ideal battery placement, a rigid battery chamber is welded to the underside of a fully enclosed, hydroformed downtube. The resulting “torsion box” structure is massively stiffer than “open” downtube designs, and carries the battery as low and central as possible for great handling and agility.
Chassis Protection – To protect the motor and battery from damage, Cannondale Moterra 2017 feature the BatStrap rubber battery cover and a burly, trials-style skid plate.
Carbon Shock Link – The full carbon shock link is light, stiff and features an ECS-TC clamped thru-axle for maximum swingarm rigidity.
Double-Stacked Bearings – For extra stiffness and durability, Cannondale Moterra 2017 uses double (side-byside) cartridge bearings in each rear swingarm pivot.
Motor: The Performance Line offers a completely new riding experience to all who like their ride to be particularly sporty and powerful, and are looking for a new athleticv challenge. The Performance Line brings serious energy and momentum to the street, to the dirt road, to the high pass or to the singletrack trail. The drive system is both extremely powerful, yet perfectly controlled, combining seamlessly with the rider’s output to dominate any terrain and every gear. From flat to steep, from moderate to full power, the Performance Line’s aesthetics, ergomnomics and power make it the ideal system for thrilling, high performance adventures. The Performance unit also comes in a SPEED version which, like the name implies, opens up the programming and increases the drive unit’s maximum assisted speed from 25 kph to a racy 45 kph.
Battery: Cannondale Moterra comes with increased range, the PowerPack 500 Wh is the perfect choice for e-mountain bikers, athletic riders, commuters, and everyone who wants to ride further distances. The lithium-ion battery has the highest energy density with the smallest possible size and lightest weight.
Drive Modes: The Bosch eSystem features a variety of drive modes to meet a wide range of needs, including the option to turn assist modes off. Turbo mode offers maximum power assistance with the motor contributing an additional 275% to the rider’s pedal power. Sport mode will give immediate power assist for sport riding and contributes 170%. Tour mode is optimal for long tours because of its consistent power and adds 110% to the rider’s efforts. Eco mode is the most effective drive mode to get maximum range by contributing 50% power. Lastly, the Cannondale Moterra has the option to turn off all assist modes and the bike will perform as a normal non-assisted bike would.
Display: Featuring the all-new Bosch Purion bar-mounted computer. The new Purion bike computer from Bosch features a minimal display and doubles as a remote control unit. Sharing a virtually identical list of functions as the bigger, field-proven Intuvia computer, Bosch are now targeting performance-orientated e-bikers who value practicality and a compact size.
