If you’re shopping for an electric bike that resembles a mountain bike in every way, then the integrated Overvolt AM is the model for you. Its integrated, and thus invisible, battery delivers the assistance needed to navigate anywhere. Its 150 mm of clearance both front and back, associated with the OST+ suspension, will ensure that you experience the true sensations of a mountain bike, with that little extra boost. This bike offers outstanding versatility and easily adapts to the its rider’s level of competence.
The Overvolt AM 500i comes equipped with the new Bosch Powertube 500 battery, which perfectly integrates into the frame a sophisticated lithium-ion technology combined with a compact and elegant aluminum design. Featuring the new E-MTB mode, the level of assistance is automatically adapted to optimize battery autonomy. Accessories have been carefully selected to satisfy all requirements inherent in an electrically-assisted mountain bike, like oversized tires offering the rider added skid resistance and comfort, associated with wheels dedicated to the Overvolt line, strengthened well beyond those of non-motorized models.
Its Supreme 5 aluminum frame serves to shed the grams and enhance reliability, two keys to the success of this type of bike. The Overvolt AM 500i contains an 11-42 SHIMANO cassette, associated with a 1 x 10-speed transmission and a SHIMANO DEORE derailleur, allowing you to easily ascend all the climbs while preserving battery autonomy. The Shimano M425 brakes will ensure you maintain a degree of secured control despite the bike’s heavier build and increased power. Moreover, the Overvolt AM 500i is fitted with a telescopic seat post controlled from the handlebars to facilitate descents and crossings. Thanks to the integrated technology, you’ll also have the option of adding a bottle holder on the downtube.

  • 500 Wh integrated Powertube battery.
  • New E-MTB mode : the motor automatically exerts the ideal power level to match the pressure put on the pedals.
