Detailed Specifications on the New Carbon R15C e-bike
The Elite Series R15C will have a removable battery!With the battery removed from the left side, it is easy to access…
Highest Quality Components:
The R15C continues the tradition of only using the highest quality performance components, like Fox suspension, SRAM Code Brakes, Rohloff Internal Gear Hub, Renthal Carbon Fiber handlebars, DT Swiss Rims and more.
Fox EBike Specific Suspension:
The bike has the new Fox E Bike Specific 36mm Fork with the Fox Float DPX2 shock with EVOL. Total rear travel is 165mm and the travel is very progressive due to the motocross style linkage on the swingarm.
The R15C now has 27.5 inch wheels for better handling and reduced rolling resistance. The tires and rims are wider too for better traction.
Adjustable Head Tube Angle:
The head table angle can be changed form 63.5 to 66.5 using the Cane Creek Angle Set head set. It comes stock at 65 degrees which is a good angle for combining stability and steering.
Low Frame Stand Over:
The bike features a very low 27 inch stand over so it easy to get off and on and fits a large range of riders.
Fox Dropper Seat Post:
There is a Fox Factory Dropper Seat Post so you can change seat height on the fly.

The R15C is now capable of 100 mile ranges at speeds of 20MPH.
