The standard Exploro Racemax was introduced in 2020 to rave reviews for its light, responsive & fun ride. When it came time to make an e-bike version, we didn’t want to change anything: same geometry, same aero tube shapes, same agile steering.
The result is a bike with a hidden boost: The Exploro Racemax Boost:
We wanted to keep the fun and flow of a fast, agile gravel bike, not build a motorcycle with pedals. That means the system has to be very light, offer a very smooth power ramp-up & create no drag when turned off. In the end, 3T’s customized Mahle ebikemotion X-35 system offers all three.
Even better, it fits inside the Racemax frame without any change to the tube shapes! So the Boost frames come out of the same mold as the regular frames, just with a small insert for the toptube button.
With its very natural pedaling feel, this is an e-bike for true cyclists. You may even forget you are riding an e-bike and think “Wow, I have amazing legs today!” We achieve this through 3 specifically-tuned levels:
|ECO||A quick ramp-up and a small Boost across the speed range, perfect to keep up with the group when your legs need a bit of support.|
|MEDIO||More support at climbing speeds, making challenging trails easier to navigate and helping you stay with the group on paved & unpaved climbs.|
|TURBO||Maximum Boost for the most challenging terrain with a super smooth ramp-up and continuing through the speed range.|
The Exploro Racemax Boost is designed for 3 types of rides:
- The power support acts as a range extender for your adventures. The bigger the loop, the bigger the fun.
- Riding in a group of varying ability can be frustrating. With a little extra support, nobody ever has to wait up anymore. Perfect for road & off-road rides.
- Commuting. The power support enables you to arrive without a sweat and have an adventurous workout on the way home.
The end result
