Felt Surplus e-50 – 2019
E-XC is AOK with Me
The Felt Surplus e50 is Felt's premiere hardtail mountain bike for getting fast on your favorite local trail. Its Shimano STePS pedal assist system helps you get far into the backcountry, even the ease of pushing a button.
For the uninitiated, pedal-assist e-bikes help riders get to the top of the hill by increasing the amount of force in the rotor and moving the chain faster than you normally would be able to. What this means is that the uphill on this bike is a breeze. It will get you to the top of the run quickly and efficiently. Its 10-speed drivetrain means you have plenty of gears to choose, for whatever terrain you find yourself in.
For the downhill, the Surplus e30 has a stable and confident riding platform due to the fact that its a hardtail. Its 66.5 head tube angle is pretty slack for an XC bike, but its steep 74-degree headtube angle means that it's still comfortable to pedal and ride this thing. Rallying down flowy trails is an absolute blast. You truly get to see more for the money too; with the pedal-assist system, you can get farther faster, meaning you can extend long rides into the wilderness
Felt Surplus e50 - The Bottom Line
XC riding is all the rage these days, and with the Felt Surplus e50, you can go farther, faster. With its Shimano STePS pedal assist paired with a 10-speed drivetrain, you can go as far as you would like without having to worry about how tired your legs are. Its slack 66.5-degree head tube angle means that you can roll over anything in the way, while still picking your lines on the downhill. It's the ease of an e-bike with the functionality of an XC bike, what's not to love?
