While developing the Ransom eRIDE, we had an E-Bike in mind that was able to go down the roughest trails, jump, corner, manual… nothing less that what you’d like to do with your enduro bike. On an electric bike, jumping, cornering and manualing also applies to the uphills and this versatility was at the center of the development of the Ransom eRIDE. A steep seat angle, centered weight and a slack head angle make this Ransom eRIDE a beast for anything from your favorite bike-parks to your home trails.

Topped off with more travel, the Ransom eRIDE benefits from a more sensitive suspension curve at the beginning of the travel together with firmer compression towards the end of the travel. The kinematic was specifically developed to meet the requirements of an E-Enduro bike.

“The goal was to provide the most capable E-Bike SCOTT has ever developed. With 180mm of travel front & back together with the 29er wheels and the aggressive geometry it makes it ride like a magic carpet…up and down!”
