The Pathlite:ON 9 SUV, an e-touring bike designed to push boundaries. When we talk about getting the most out of life, this is exactly what we mean.
Right off the bat, the ride feels smooth and controlled. You're on a magic carpet, with a suspension that takes the sting out of surprises on the trail. The Suntour MOBIE35 Boost EQ suspension fork teams up with chunky Maxxis Crossmark II EXO TR 57mm mountain bike tyres, transitioning between roads and trails like a dream.
This isn't just about fun, though. This bike is a fortress on wheels, with an ingenious anti-lock braking system that doesn't throw you over the bars if you slam the brakes. It's the kind of dependability you want when you're out exploring the unknown.
The Pathlite:ON 9 SUV is also a secure fortress, offering anti-theft features that include pinpoint GPS tracking and configurable alarms via the eBike Flow app. The world can be a scary place, but this bike helps to soothe your fears.

It's impressive how this beast can carry your essentials. The bike has enough storage capacity for a picnic, your camera gear, and even some champagne to toast at the summit.
This machine is powered by the Bosch Performance Line CX motor, a beast that offers a whopping 340% pedal assistance with 85Nm of torque, ensuring there's plenty of punch for your all-day riding escapades. The battery, with capacities ranging from 625 to 750Wh, ensures that your wanderlust won't be curtailed by a lack of juice.
The drivetrain and gear system are no less impressive, boasting the legendary Shimano DEORE XT M8100, renowned for its bombproof reliability and sharp shifting capabilities. It's like a well-oiled machine that doesn't let you down, rain or shine.
Now let's talk about the small things that matter. The Pathlite:ON 9 SUV is decked out with a sleek aluminium frame and a set of bright Supernova lights that keep the road well-lit, ensuring your safety even when the sun goes down. A nifty Bosch display or the SmartphoneGrip mount keep all your important ride data in sight, right on your handlebars.
