These days the desire to escape the routine and the need to overcome our limits are certainly familiar sensations to fulfill these wishes Brinke announces the launch of an absolute preview of the 2021 collection: X5R + Race with EP8, the top of the eenduro range, dedicated to all the bikers looking for extreme performance.
X5R + Race was already the uncontested star of the past season, and is now enhanced with the new and even more performing Shimano EP8 engine, for unlimited fun.
The feedback received from the 2020 version of X5R + Race were important, as you can read in the many bike tests written on this ebike, like for example the one by journalist Roberto Zanetti From bicitech.it who declared: “... generous, compact, the X5R + Race has surpassed brilliantly our test facing the most demanding trails. "

The X5R + Race 2021 confirms itself as an extremely agile, reactive e-enduro MTB devoted to speed. The performing geometries of the X5R + Race associated with the new Shimano EP8 motor, more powerful, lighter and quieter, further increase its performance, ensuring a more reactive driving.
EP8 also guarantees to better manage the engine power which increases the autonomy of the vehicle.
Equipped with a hydroformed aluminum frame 6061, 440 mm chainstay lenght with under 160 mm front travel, to ensure extreme agility and reactivity of the vehicle, and with ROCK SHOX LYRIC SELECT suspensions, which guarantee an extremely smooth ride.
Shimano XT brakes and SCHWALBE 27.5 * 2.8 Magic Mary tires at the front and Hans Dampf at the rear, ensure safety when descending and braking.
The cassette and chain redesigned for the HYPERGLIDE + transmission, also ensure quick changes, efficient power transfer and a chain stability never experienced before.
Thanks to this technology, the biker can therefore adapt to sudden changes of terrain , without jolts and interruptions; reducing the impact of pedaling and the shift change time of 1/3. The smoother power transfer has also the great advantage to increase the comfort on the saddle and reduce the fatigue of the cyclist. Among the standard equipment, the telescopic seatpost should also be mentioned, which thanks to the remote control, allows you to easily adapt the height of the saddle to the type of route, improving the control and driveability of the ebike, especially on technical descents or particularly steep routes.

Brinke's powerful and fierce X5R + Race also boasts a clean and captivating design thanks to the integrated battery.
X5R + has also been confirmed in the no Race version for those who do not wish to participate in e-enduro races but are still looking for top performance and fun. X5R + 2021 just like the race version, comes with the new top-of-the-range engine Shimano EP8.
Have Fun with Brinke!
