With 140/160mm travel and 3 build levels, the Wire Peak has a starting price of $3,599. We designed the Wire Peak, named after a mesa in Southern Utah, with performance in mind.
We designed the Wire Peak to be a mountain bike first and a pedal assist bike second,” said . “This is a bike that allows you to explore more - take a longer ride, go up a steeper trail, ride a new area, or take another lap.—Tyler Cloward, Director of Product Development
We designed the Wire Peak as a bike before the motor was ever included. With 140mm rear travel and up to 160mm front travel, the specifically-tuned TetraLink suspension provides a stable pedaling platform with a bottomless feel on descents. The geometry gives it a light feel and easy handling, with 435mm chainstays, a slack 66-degree head angle, and a steep 76-degree seat angle.
Many pedal assist bikes on the market today sacrifice modern geometry in order to accommodate the motor system by making the chainstays longer. Long chainstays slow down handling, make it hard to pick up the front end, and give a ‘dead’ feel to the bike. We worked through many iterations of the suspension design and the position of the Shimano E8000 motor in order to achieve the short 435mm chainstay length.
The Shimano E8000 system with up to 70 nm of torque and a 504 Wh battery allows you to go up to 60 miles on a charge. With 3 levels of power assist - Eco, Trail, and Boost - you can get the exact level of workout you want, and have the ability to climb to the top of your dream mountain. The integrated battery was custom designed to be smaller and lighter with a sleeker side profile. It can be locked with a key and also easily removed for on-bike or off-bike charging.
The Wire peak gives you the option of 27.5+ or 29er wheels that can be switched out on the frame through the GA-Link system. The Wire Peak also includes our CleanCatch topside cable routing technology that virtually eliminates all rattles and keeps the Wire Peak silent while riding.
“The Wire Peak was built as a complete bike system without compromise to handling and performance. Once you ride it, you’ll find how addictive it is,” said Cloward.
