I really like my Pivot Shuttle- the V1 from 2018. The only drawback is the battery life. It may just be worn out but I usually end rides earlier than I'd like because I'm out of power. I tend to ride fast but don't really do parks or ramp type jumps- Bay Area and Downieville primarily.

What's the sweet bike these days if I want to stay under $12k?

Thanks

I'm fond of the Orbea Rise, but there are a bunch of light weight ebikes coming out now. The Rise is more XC oriented. If you're into self shuttling DH laps then I'd get something more burly.

I have 2 bikes I run longer days and more laps on. My Orbea Wild with the battery extender kit exceeds my requirements for range. It'll get 60km of shuttling in a day which is a ton. My 2022 Norco Range VLT with a 900whr battery is an amazing descender and runs nearly the same amount of lap km's as my Orbea.

Both will easily climb 1600-1800m.
There are a ton of bikes in the 720-750whr range now too, and they're mostly great. I think while I prefer the Norco as a bike, I prefer the Bosch motor as a drive unit.
