What modes are there?
The Privateer E161 uses the latest Shimano EP801 drive-unit featuring 3 assist modes plus a handy 'Walk' mode. 'Eco' mode offers the lowest level of assistance and will provide you with the most range. 'Trail' mode is a mid-level power and torque mode, while 'Boost' provides maximum acceleration and torque. All modes are also customisable from within the Shimano E-Tube application.
Can I run a 29” rear wheel?
No, the Privateer E161 is designed as a mullet and requires a 27.5in wheel to ensure correct handling and performance.
Will it fit a water bottle?
Yes, approve 500ml bottle on all sizes.
Is the E161 coil compatible?
The 161 could work with a coil, but we have worked closely with Fox on the X2 shock and believe it offers the best performance for this bike.
Can I change the chainring size?
You must not change the chainring size of the E161, doing so could lead to damage and will void warranty.
