It’s not uncommon for us to speak about electric bikes as more than the sum of their parts. At best, an electric bike goes beyond merely a 'bicycle + motor,' representing a new class of vehicle light enough to carry up stairs, but strong enough to power you up the steepest hills.
The new Stromer ST2 S fulfills on this vision, and sets the bar for this new class of vehicles we call the electric bicycle.
The ST2 S is an evolution of the successful ST2 which couples the powerful SYNO drive with the connective OMNI console. The ST2 S builds upon the ST2 in many core areas: battery size/range, electronic shifting, wheels and tires, lighting and braking. The result is a bike with unbeatable range, incredibly low service needs and world class computer controlled lighting. Let us explain...
First, the ST2 S comes stock with a 983 watt-hour battery, approximately 20% more capacity than the ST2. Max range at a lower level of assist is well above 100 miles per battery charge. If you're doing a long commute or distance touring, this new larger battery will be essential for you.
Second, the already long service intervals of the ST2 just got longer on the ST2 S thanks to Shimano Di2 electronic shifting. Di2 uses electric wires instead of mechanical cables to perform the shift.
Once adjusted, there is no risk of cable stretch causing your shifting to fall out of adjustment.
Magura MT5 brakes, with twice as many pistons (four per caliper), will stop you more surely than ever, especially when combined with the powerful regenerative braking of the SYNO drive motor. Brake pad replacement will, for the average rider, become even more infrequent.
Finally, the ST2 S is the first bike at The New Wheel to feature the Supernova M99 computer-controlled headlight that adjusts it's beam pattern and light strength based on the speed at which the bike is moving. The result is light when and where you need it, all simply controlled at the touch of a button.
All in all, Stromer elevates the experience of electric bicycles to a zenith with the ST2 S, and we're excited for what this bike has to offer commuters and riders in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.
