Why We Build It
E-Lines combine our strongest rim, the Mainline with an E-Bike certified version of our titanium freehub, and stiffer, more torque-resistant rear spokes to deliver the power transfer, lateral stiffness, and durability demanded by E-Bike applications. Like our Mainline wheels, E-Lines are backed by our Lifetime Guarantee.
Built for the rowdiest conditions, E-Lines are laterally, vertically, and torsionally stiff featuring a deep profile and robust cross-section designed to support the most aggressive tires.
Ride quality is tuned & improved through the use of SPM™ straight-pull hubs and 28 spokes per wheel, laced three-cross (while straight-pull hubs from many other hub makers count the spoke lobe as one of the cross points, SPM™ hubs are truly 3x, maximizing torsional strength) . The front wheel employs the same D-Lite Spokes as the Mainline to help mute small-bump chatter, While the rear wheel utilizes, thicker gauge, Sapim Race spokes to prevent "wind-up" that can result from the higher torque output created by an electric motor.
Power transmission is further aided by the use of our E-Certified titanium freehub which delivers 33% stronger torque capabilities than our standard 4-pawl titanium design. In the E-bike application, pedaling engagement is controlled/limited by the motor (rather than the freehub as in analog applications) so freehub engagement can be reduced for improved torque-handling resulting in a hub and wheel designed to withstand longer steeper climbing at the higher constant power and torque outputs possible with a pedal assist E-bike.
The 34mm internal width of the E-line is ideal for tires ranging from 2.4" to 3" When paired with a 2.5" (or Maxxis WT) tire, E-Lines deliver the best traction/power transfer and most capable tracking in high speed chunk and hard cornering of any wheel we build.
Finally, it is possible to configure E-Lines in the Mixer or "Mullet" format with a 29" Front wheel and 27.5" rear wheel by selecting the "Front Wheel Only" option from the 29" E-Line and the "Rear Wheel Only" option from the 27.5" E-Line.
