Video: Eminent Teases a New eMTB

Jul 29, 2021
by James Smurthwaite  

The last we heard from Eminent it was filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy to rearrange its debts. 4 months on from that, it seems to have come out the other side stronger and is now teasing a new eMTB that's going to be called the Drive.

This video does a good job of keeping all the details secret but Eminent definitely has its own design style so we would expect this to carry using the Active Float System that we've seen on the Onset or the Haste but adapted to house a motor and battery. There's no date yet on when we'll hear more but we'll update you when we have more information.

 Just so people can be better informed on what Chapter 11 bankruptcy actually is:

I am not sure if people are serious when they make the bankruptcy comments, are just taking jabs as a joke, or have no clue what chapter 11 actually is. All of us have items in our households from companies that have filed chapter 11.

 Honestly the cardboard box is a big step up in terms of styling from their previous bikes.

 This is the most disappointing comments section I've seen in a while... All I see is evidence that many people don't even read a sentence of the information under the title. Where's the whit? Where's the off-topic arguing? Come on guys. You can do better

 Wait wasn't there an article about this company going bankrupt only a few months ago? Why would I buy an expensive E-MTB from them now?

 They filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy, which just means they are reorganizing their debts, not that they are going out of business. That would be chapter 7.

"For a business, bankruptcy does not necessarily mean ruin. If it did, there would be three fewer major air carriers (United, Delta, American), two fewer car manufacturers (General Motors, Chrysler), and no Marvel Universe."

 Glad they left the "prototype" in the box until some exceptionally hairy guys Ford wouldnt start. So, no one wanted to ride the bike until faced with a last resort- good marketing

 @danielfloyd: yeah ig, just wasn't sure if you meant to say eminent or imminent seeing as both are words, and in past articles about Eminent, people have mistakenly made puns meaning imminent but saying eminent not realizing they're different words.

 Is there a reason? I have numerous bikes, one of which is a low powered ebike. Ive ridden all over the US on many different bikes and this one gets me the most excited to ride.
