Mountain Biking UK - - WRECKED & RATED -

The Moterra LT’s odd-shaped down tube is a case of form fol­low­ing func­tion. Can­non­dale have ro­tated the Bosch mo­tor slightly fur­ther than on the other bikes here, which al­lows them to get the main pivot closer to the chain­ring and shorten the back end. They’ve also at­tached the bat­tery low down on the un­der­side of the down tube, to lower the bike’s cen­tre of grav­ity and thus im­prove its han­dling. It’s one of the few e-MTBs not to use plus-size tyres.
