The all-new Dawes Spire 2.0 Crossbar electric bike is a versatile hybrid; perfectly suited for the daily commute, popping to the shops or a weekend of riding your local country park and canal towpaths. When compared to the Dawes Spire 1.0, this bike features upgraded 1x9 Shimano Alivio gearing, a larger 540wh battery and a sleek centre mounted handlebar display.
The crossbar frame is equipped with a neatly integrated 540wh battery that can deliver over 60 miles / 97km of assisted pedalling. The power is delivered from within the Bafang rear hub motor, a brand who is quickly establishing themselves as one of the leading bicycle motor brands with excellent build quality, performance, and value for money.
With 32nm of torque, the Spire 2.0 delivers plenty of power to keep the wheels turning up dragging hills and make flat terrain a breeze. The battery uses high quality cells from Samsung, another leading brand in the electric bike industry and all pass the most stringent safety and performance tests required by UK and EU law for peace of mind. The battery can be charged on or off the bike, with a complete charge from flat within 6 hours and is easily removed without tools for added convenience. An integrated battery lock ensures peace of mind when left in public.
The stylish centre-mounted display makes monitoring your ride information super-easy and you can cycle through the different functions using the side-mounted remote. This intuitive computer system offers 5 power assist modes and, current speed, average speed, max speed, trip distance and trip time. To make things easy when off the bike, we’ve fitted a walk assist mode that engages the motor to help drive the bike when pushing up steep hills.
We’ve equipped the Spire 2.0 with dependable 1x9 speed Shimano Alivio/Altus gearing and powerful, low maintenance Tektro hydraulic disc brakes to help keep you in control when navigating the city traffic or local cycle path. A 70mm travel suspension fork with hydraulic lockout takes care of bumps and uneven terrain.
For rider contact points you’ll find a comfortable Selle Royal Freeway saddle, ergonomically shaped grips and alloy city pedals. The 700x45c Kenda tyres are grippy and fast rolling with added puncture protection to help keep flat tyres at bay while the reflective detailing increases visibility in low light and nighttime settings.
Lastly, the Spire 2.0 comes as standard with bright front and rear LED lights that are powered directly by the battery, a rear pannier rack for transporting luggage, mudguards to avoid tyre spray and a handy kickstand for parking your bike.
