When I rode the ST2 in 2015 I was immediately impressed. No hub motor electric bike had ever felt that good and mid-drive motor bikes still were a bit finicky because you always had to shift into the right gear to get good torque - not with ST2. The new Syno-Drive hub motor delivered super powerful and consistently distributed torque and acceleration across the full range of speed. That meant it accelerate from 0-10 mph with as much kick as from 20-28 mph. It's a great feeling and something which no hub motor bike before had achieved! ST2S has the same ride but with some major upgrades... read on!
The ST2S is very similar to the regular ST2: same incredible motor power, same discrete touch screen interface, same incredible aesthetic. Let's check out where it pulls ahead...
How is ST2S better than ST2?
-20% larger battery (983Wh) delivers 60-120 miles per charge!
Shimano Di2 electronic shifting is ultra quiet, exact, and always in tune.
-1x11 Drivetrain is cleaner and less maintenance than ST2 yet delivers comparable gearing for any terrain.
-Supernova M99 Pro headlight is 400% brighter and features dual beam options. This makes riding at night super safe. It's pretty much as bright as a car headlight!
-New Magura MT5 disc brake levers and calipers deliver super strong yet modular braking action. Good to have on a super fast ebike!
