How does the eMTB turn the joy of cycling up to 11? With more power? Perhaps. With a bigger range? Oh, definitely. But the real key lies in greater agility and a more conventional riding style that allows you to rediscover your own power. And it simply gives you a more thrilling ride because every part of it is the pure, distilled essence of what a bike is meant to be.
Weighing in at a mere 19.4 kg, the AirRay 12.0 truly is a lightweight bike. It's as light as a feather thanks to its carbon frame, which comes in at just 2.8 kg, and the AIR DRIVE powered by Yamaha, a motor that has been custom developed for our E-MTB Light bikes. This weighs only 2.9 kg and provides support with a mighty 50 Nm. Because the AirRay weighs so little, it offers agile handling while still providing good traction on trails, offering an entirely new riding experience. With 150 mm travel at the front and the rear, the 29” bike makes trails all the more fun and gives you the comfort you need on treks.
With the AIR DRIVE powered by Yamaha, which has been specially developed for our E-MTB Light bikes, we made a conscious decision to reject the trend to go bigger and heavier with batteries. The AirRay E 12.0 features an AIR DRIVE combined with a compact, lightweight 410 Wh battery that can be easily charged off the bike. The maximum torque has been reduced to 50 Nm to give you a more natural-feeling ride, and specially adapted software gives you support, especially when you're out on treks.
Yamaha's new Interface X-Cockpit is part of the AIR DRIVE system and features a minimalist thumb controller and a super compact, stem-mounted LED display that shows information about the battery and your selected assistance level. You can also attach Sigma, Garmin or Echowell displays to the handlebars and hook them up to the unit using Bluetooth or ANT+ to receive more data. You can also connect your smartphone to the Interface X-Cockpit so you can use it as a satnav.
