The Felt NINE-E20 is a eMTB capable of all that you’d expect and more from an electric mountain bike. Technology and innovation define every model produced by Felt Bicycles, but perhaps none more so than Felt Electric mountain bikes. Whether you’re hitting your local trail for a leisurely spin or heading deep into the backcountry, Felt’s full line of pedal-assist electric mountain bikes offer all of the performance for which Felt mountain bikes are renowned with the added benefit of an electric motor to help you conquer any terrain.
Brakes: The Felt NINE-E20 is equipped with powerful Shimano BR-M616 hydraulic disc brakes with Ice Tech brake pads. These brakes are very reliable and low-maintenance. No matter how hard you ride, stopping should be no concern.
Frame: The Felt NINE-E20 features a lightweight BOSCH MTB XC Hartail Double butted 7005 alluminum frame. It has a high strength to weight ratio and is highly resistant to corrosion, keeping you on the trail for years to come. The frame also features some unique qualities such as a tapered headtube, reducing stress and adding stability, and a cable inlet system, giving the bike an elegant solution for routing the wires and cables.
Sizing Options: The Felt NINE-E20 comes in a variety of sizes; Small (16”), Medium (18”), Large (20”), and Extra Large (22”). If you’re unsure of what size would be best for you, please contact us so that we can assist you in finding your correct fit.
Suspension: The Felt NINE-E20 is equipped with a Rock Shox Reba RLT 100m Solo Air Tapered Steerer with Magnesium lowers. The bike has an adjustable rebound with 100mm of travel and a 15mm Maxle providing exceptional ride quality. The Rock Shox fork also has a remote lock out feature for better riding efficiency when the suspension is not needed, for example, while riding on the street to the trail.
Color: The Felt Felt NINE-E20 is available in Gloss Black Pearl with Grey Hex Orange accents.
Accessories: The Felt NINE-E20 does not come with any accessories but we can make recommendations based on your needs. Our team has a lot of experience outfitting bikes with additional accessories, so be sure to reach out to us if there’s anything you may need.
Motor: While many ebikes utilize a hub-mounted motor located in the rear wheel, Felt Electric ebikes feature the revolutionary mid-mount Bosch eDrive System, which positions the motor at the lowest point along the center of the frame. This gives Felt Electric ebikes more even weight distribution, which ensures better handling and more stability.
The Bosch eDrive System is maintenance-free and produces very little noise and vibration compared to many other electric-assist motors. Plus, with the battery mounted along the downtube, it’s easily accessible for recharging, and is also simple to detach.
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 Felt NINE-E20 has the option to turn off all assist modes and the bike will perform as a normal non-assisted bike would.
Display: The dual mode display has two main functions; to allow the rider to control drive parameters, and to display system information, including distance, time and speed. The control pad allows you to access all the computer and drive functions remotely, leaving your hands on the bar to maintain safety and security. To change motor settings while riding, simply push the large, glove friendly keys on the handlebar control pad. This ensures safety and stability, while still allowing you to control the motor for optimal performance.
Functions at a Glance:
- Five user-selectable power modes to choose from (Eco, Tour, Sport, Turbo & OFF)
- Speed: Current, average, and top
- Trip distance and total
- Clock and riding timer
- Current motor performance
- Remaining Range based on current use
- Off-Board Use: All functions can still be accessed even when the control panel is removed
- USB port to connect to your GPS, phone or MP3-Player
- Motor Assistance of up to 4mph when guiding the bike on foot- WALK MODE
- High precision distance measurement, even after a wheel change
Top Speed: Like most electric bikes sold in the US, the The Felt NINE-E20 has a top speed of 20 mph in keeping with federal law. There are ways to remove this speed limit for use on private roadways, however the jury is still out on how this will impact your Warranty. Until we get an official word from Felt, we’re going to err on the side of caution. Please contact us to learn about the concerns with making this modification.
Range: The Felt NINE-E20 utilizes Bosch’s extremely efficient 400Wh battery with a range of up to 60 miles in Eco mode under optimal conditions. Range will always vary depending on use of drive mode, how much you pedal, the type of terrain, and the rider’s weight.
Battery: The Felt NINE-E20 comes standard with Bosch’s latest and greatest energy dense 5.5 pound shockproof PowerPack 400 system, a 400Wh, 36V11ah lithium ion battery. The lightweight lockable and removable downtube mounted battery gives the Felt NINE-E20 great weight distribution, handling, and ease of use. The charger weighs less than 2 lbs. and can charge the battery on or off the bike to 50% in 1.5 hours and fully in 3.5.
