No. Their selling e-bikes at cost because they don't care about the money.And do you really think Intense, Pivot, Commencal, Specialized, Trek, Cannondale, Kona, Giant, Rocky Mountain, and all the other eMTB manufacturers who also make the world's best MTBs are really just selling out and making eBikes for no reason other than a quick buck? Really?
Gasp! How dare you suggest there's any other way to get a workout than pedaling a bicycle up a hill! The horror! And moto?!? Those guys are even fatter and lazier than e-bike riders.Gravity pros (including, sort of, myself, back in the day) have a long tradition of cross training on motos. But motos can be a PITA these days - not many trails left open in many places, you've gotta trailer them around, store them, etc.
An e-bike is a great alternative for a fit/fast pro, since you can keep it going "bike handing" speed on moderate climbs (ie, getting some braking/cornering practice in while going up) and do more laps/not get as fatigued. Arguably the perfect tool to train for enduro or DH.
