EUROBIKE AWARD 2007

EUROBIKE AWARD 2007

Well concealed within the MTB’S frame, the interaction between the ultra-light GRUBER Assist and the bike’s pedal crank goes almost unnoticed. This drive mechanism can be installed on nearly every MTB with a straight, continuous saddle tube with an inner diameter of 31.6mm and only weighs 900g. A NiMHbattery can be stash in a saddle bag. As a result, apart from a small on-off button on the BarEnds, there is nothing to indicate the presence of the drive unit. Thanks to the 200Watt powerful drive mechanism, the biker’s own performance can be increased by up to 100%. This system enables riders to climb steep hills much more easily and healthily.
