There was a point where I thought an electric mountain bike felt a bit like cheating. The extra pedal assist that they provide takes some of the challenge out of the ride. But, I’ve come to appreciate what an e-bike brings to the table, allowing more riders to enjoy the backcountry who might not normally get a chance to do so. In this video, we join pro rider Matt Hunter as he takes the new Specialized Turbo Levo Carbon for a spin through remote areas of British Columbia. As you’ll see the bike performs well in this conditions. I was fortunate enough to get the chance to take this bike for a brief test ride a few weeks back, and came away very impressed. It is fun, fast, and efficient. I know what I’ll be asking Santa for Christmas this year.
