Stormguard E+ is Taiwan’s Giant Bicycle’s latest off-road capable full-suspension urban e-bike. The urban e-bike is ideal for daily commutes, shopping trips into town, or off-road adventures beyond the city limits thanks to its full-suspension comfort.
The versatile Stormguard E+ is like the SUV of electric bikes. The experience begins with an easy-to-conquer 100 mm of travel front and back, courtesy of its full Fox suspension, and it continues with a nifty floating cargo carrier on the aluminum frame. This carrier allows the rear shock to do its thing without compromising the rack which can haul up to 20 kg/44 lb worth of gear.Pedal assist is made possible by our innovative SyncDrive Pro motor. This powerful, high-torque component was designed to smoothly ride across different terrains.This electric bike offers the highest level of support at 400% for an ultra-smooth and comfortable ride. You’ll also get ample power when you need it, thanks to the single-speed Gates Carbon belt drive, Enviolo geared hub and downtube 800-Wh battery. The battery also provides up to 250 km of riding range in perfect conditions (or 70 km in extreme conditions). A 250-Wh bottle battery range extender is available as an option on some models.The Stormguard E+ is known for its 27.5-inch alloy rims with 2.6-inch Maxxis Rekon tires, and stopping power is provided by Shimano Deore’s four-pistons brakes. For inner-city jaunts that suddenly turn into epic dirt rides, users can easily adjust the dropper seat post to their desired height, thanks to a remote mounted on the handlebars of the bike.
Elsewhere, there’s a high-quality Supernova lighting system on the front and back end. Additionally, you’ll find that it comes with LED lights up to tip of the tires. It features a color display that’s compatible with ANT+ sensors and is capable of pairing with your smartphone over Bluetooth. You’ll also get access to messaging apps and alternative navigation aids. This e-bike comes with an integrated kickstand for easy parking, while also sporting superb fenders up front and back in order to keep any splashes caused by the chunky tires out of harm’s way.The 2023 Stormguard E+ is available now in four different frame sizes, starting at €7,999 (about US$8,200). However, there’s also a cheaper version that only costs €6,499.
