Radon ZR Team Hybrid 8.0 CX 500 – E-Bike HardtailThe ZR Team Hybrid 8.0 CX 500 gets a powerful update for the new model year. We've heard the desire for that extra bit of power and are setting new standards in this price range with the brand new fourth generation Bosch Performance CX engine. Lighter, more compact, quieter and a more dynamic power delivery compared to the previous model are the most important features.
Highlights of the ZR Team Hybrid 8.0 CX 500
With 250 watts of power, up to 85Nm of torque and 340% support, you'll be tired of performance. The powerful 500Wh Powerpack sits semi-integrated and centrally positioned in the lower frame triangle and ensures a harmonious ride due to its low center of gravity. To keep it harmonious even in rough conditions, we use the sensitive air suspension fork Rock Shox Judy Silver TK and reliable Shimano MT200 brakes for the necessary deceleration. When it comes to the drivetrain, you can fully rely on SRAM's SX Eagle 12-speed shift group, which provides you with the right gear in every situation. The high quality package is rounded off by precious LEVELNINE components and a comfortable Natural Fit Sequence saddle - the tour can begin!

Bosch eMTB Technology
Bosch Performance Line CX 2021
The Bosch Performance Line CX offers a unique eMTB experience: Compact, lightweight and with more power, it combines high-quality materials, an extremely powerful drive and high-end sensors. This brings eMountain biking on the trail to a whole new level. From model year 2021 with a torque of up to 85 Nm, new features in the motor control and a further development of eMTB mode - all as a software update. For a thrilling riding experience: more natural, intuitive and powerful and an absolute benchmark in its class.
What is new with the Bosch Performance Line CX engine in model year 2021?
Performance upgrade and new features
A riding experience that sets the benchmark: From model year 2021, the Performance Line CX ensures even more riding enjoyment on the trail - with further developed software and a maximum torque of 85 Nm. The increased torque ensures greater performance, supporting you with even more power, especially in low cadences. In eMTB and Turbo mode, this leads to significantly faster acceleration and makes hill starts much easier. Thanks to a broader cadence range, unpredictable riding situations can be mastered even more effectively - for example in the case of late gear shifting or accelerating out of tight corners. Riding remains smooth and free from jolts, even when out of the saddle or in Turbo mode.
Next-level eMTB mode
The progressive riding mode for every occasion: Advanced eMTB mode ensures eMountain bikers are well-prepared for whatever riding situation the trail may have in store. New sensor and motor control functions give eMountain bikers a much wider range of dynamic and natural support. Riders continue to benefit from the proven technology of eMTB mode: Depending on pedal pressure, progressive motor support adapts perfectly to the riding situation. The improved adjustment of eMTB mode ensures optimum traction control in all gears and enables organic handling (AKA 'power on demand'). Start-up behaviour is much finer and more sensitive - especially in low gears. Due to the increased torque, the drive unit supports an even wider cadence range.
Extended Boost is the unrivalled function for negotiating exposed roots, steps and stones on the trail with ease, even uphill. The eMTB can be maneuvered with much greater agility and ease on technical sections. The unique dynamism means that obstacles can be overcome with ease by applying the right amount of pressure to the pedal. The pedals rarely, if ever, jam. The new, innovative function in eMTB mode can be controlled to optimum effect in all riding situations. If the front wheel is already on the step, a slight pedal pressure is all it takes to give the decisive "kick". This takes pedal management to a whole new level.

The new Bosch eMTB mode from 2021 - especially for eMountainbikers
For the ultimate Uphill Flow
For powerful eBiking in the mountains and on rough terrain: The eMTB mode of the Performance Line CX and Performance Line switches between the Tour and Turbo modes. To control the bike even on difficult sections, the further optimised eMTB Mode supports eMountain bikers with maximum sensitivity, allied with progressive power delivery: with a maximum torque of up to 75 Nm on the Performance Line and 85 Nm on the Performance Line CX and motor support between 140% and 340%. Depending on the pedal pressure applied, the motor dynamically boosts the rider's own performance. The eBiker does not have to change the riding modes manually. Starting on steep slopes is no problem, while riding on mountain trails is noticeably easier and the eMountain biker benefits from significantly better traction. This provides a natural riding sensation and optimum performance on the trail.
Improved coordination and extended boost
New sensor and motor control functions in the Performance Line CX give you a much wider range of support, even more dynamically and naturally. The improved adjustment of eMTB mode ensures optimum traction control in all gears and enables organic handling ("power on demand"). Start-up behaviour is much finer and more sensitive, especially in low gears. Due to the increased torque, the Drive Unit supports an even wider cadence range. Extended Boost is the unrivalled function for negotiating exposed roots, steps and stones on the trail with ease, even uphill.

Peter B.Comment:Hallo zusammen, ich habe mir dieses E-Bike als Touren MTB zugelegt und bewege es überwiegend Offroad! Ich kann nur sagen es macht richtig Spass und fährt sich Mega !! Aus meiner SIcht tolle Abstimmung der Komponenten und nahezu perfektes Preis Leistungsverhältnis. Es gibt Eigenschaften wo es mich bis heute noch ärgert warum diese so sind wie sie sind aber das trifft auf alle Hersteller zu und tut deswegen auch nichts zur Sache für diese Bewertung ! Klare Kaufempfehlung !
