160e

WE DON’T PARTY UNTIL THE RACE IS OVER. SO WE TOOK OUR TIME TO DESIGN AN e-MTB THE WAY A YETI e-MTB HAS TO BE DESIGNED: READY TO TOE THE LINE AT EWS-E RACES. MEET THE 160E: THE WORLD’S FIRST RACE SPECIFIC e-MTB.

WHILE EVERYONE ELSE WAS RACING
TO MAKE AN e-MTB, WE WERE
MAKING AN e-MTB FOR RACING.

A lot happens during the course of a half-decade long development cycle. The 160E is our most ambitious project yet.

INFINITE SUSPENSION CAPABILITY, REALIZED FOR THE DEMANDS OF e-MTB. MEET SIXFINITY.

e-Bike Kinematics.

With the right suspension an e-MTB can do things a pedal bike can’t, taking you further, faster. Sixfinity delivers a suspension design that is expertly tuned for the added weight, speed and demands of an e-MTB.

160e

EFFICIENCY AND TRACTION. OPTIMIZED.

At sag, the anti-squat value is lower than our traditional bikes. This is ideal for the greater acceleration and higher speed hits while pedaling on an e-MTB.

Traction and Composure.
Achieved.

Due to the greater mass of an e-MTB, we reduced the anti-rise magnitude to 65%. Anti-rise remains consistent across the entire travel range, striking a balance for the unique demands of the added weight and power of an e-MTB.

NOT YOUR AVERAGE “SUPERCHARGED” PEDAL BIKE
Jared Graves EWS-E

Composed, planted, wickedly fast.

More trails. More laps. More of what you love. Sure, any e-MTB technically delivers “more”. More for the 160E is added composure, speed and agility. See also personal bests, wins, and championships.

Fast. Beyond the Power.

The 25Km/h motor limit can be easily outpaced by racers. As a foundational design requirement, the 160E continues to elevate its performance and composure, the faster you go. So much so, Jared Graves has a new favorite bike. 

Non-Drive Side Cable Routing 160E

Rattle. Slap. Not.

Internally routed cable tubes with secure closure at entry and exit points make rattles a thing of the past. And an all-new chain slap protector virtually eliminates chain noise.

Run it "moto."

Run it “moto.”

Whether running cabled or wireless drivetrains, dropper posts or a moto brake setup, the 160E’s cable management system accommodates it all.

Room to Move 160E 3up

Room to maneuver.

To maximize agility and the extra English often required to hold race lines, an uninterrupted seat tube offers full travel dropper post compatibility throughout the size range.

Yeti 160E Motor

Global Support.
For Global
Competition.

Working with our long-time race partner,
the Shimano EP8 motor and 630-watt hour
battery delivers consistent power to attack
any terrain. Best of all, the system has
hassle free, world-wide support.

160E Chainguide

Guiding More than the Chain.

Factory race team sponsor, OneUp Components bridged the gap between our racing and engineering needs. Every 160E comes stock with a custom chain guide to prevent chain derailments and offer rattle-free cable management for mechanical drivetrains. 

Traction + Traction = Speed

Considering the added power at the rear wheel–for a race specific e-MTB, dual 29” wheels provide more traction, better rollover and ultimately a faster bike.

160E Short Chainstays

“HOW’D THEY DO
THAT?”SHORT CHAIN STAYS.

The answer is Sixfinity. Due to the incredibly compact packaging of the Infinity link, the 160E has shorter chain stays that eliminates the lazy-to-turn feel that plagues e-MTB's that utilize suspension designs carried forward from pedal only designs. Without resorting to smaller wheel sizes and leaving traction and speed on the table, our 29” wheel chainstays are shorter than other brands compensating mullet setups.

160E BB

A Slightly Higher BB.
Say What?

At 350mm, the 160E’s bottom bracket height is a bit higher than our SB150 pedal bike. The slightly higher BB paired with shorter cranks means racers realize the gains of extra pedal strokes.
