This SyncDrive Pro system is powered by the new Shimano EP8 motor. It’s tuned to respond less to torque input from the rider and more to cadence. This makes it ideal for steady pedaling and an excellent option for gravel E-bikes.
SHIMANO EP8 POWERTRAIN
Light and Powerful
With a weight of only 2.8kg and 85Nm of torque, it is a relatively light and very powerful motor. We added slope and acceleration sensors to make it SmartAssist compatible, resulting in superior all-around performance.
This system also works with a Shimano Di2 drivetrain, allowing the rider to change power modes with the shift levers. This provides a tidy handlebar setup without an additional E-bike head unit needed.
