GIANT STANCE E+1 PRO R78 999, giant-bicycles.com
With a 67° head tube angle, a 130mm fork and 120mm of rear travel, the Stance E+1 has all-rounder trail geometry that will allow you to ride just about anything from heart-pounding singletrack to fire roads, green belts, and even the odd tar section. You get a quality build package for the price, with a 12-speed Shimano drivetrain, Rockshox suspension and Giant’s proven Yamaha Syncdrive Pro motor, which you can tune using an app. The integrated 625Wh battery is a highlight – many other e-bikes in the same category only come with a 500Wh battery. Extra watt-hours equals greater range – and more time on the trails.
