Norco Bikes updates its portfolio of e-MTBs with the newly revised Fluid VLT 2024 with carbon frameis launching its first model with the new and relatively lightweight Bosch Performance Line SX drive system (with a total weight of around 8.8 pounds / 4 kg for the entire drive system and a motor weight of around 4.4 pounds / 2 kg it is impressively light).

The weight range of the Fluid VLT 2024 range is between 17.2 and 19.9kg, which is very impressive for a full suspension e-MTB, especially considering you get a 400Wh battery (250Wh range -Extender is also available). The motor itself has a torque rating of 55Nm – not as powerful as many of Bosch’s other mid-motors, but that’s the price you pay for a lighter and more responsive e-MTB. Availability is planned for spring 2024, but we don’t have pricing details yet.

We’ve already taken a look at Specialized’s remarkable new longtail e-bike, the Haul LT Although full details were not available when the original article was written. Now specialized have revealed more details, including a full specs list. First just a quick summary; The Globe Haul LT is a utility e-bike that can carry up to three people or up to six panniers or a combination. EBR has already taken a closer look at the short-tail version, the Globe Haul ST.

We correctly deduced many specs in our first look at the Globe Haul ST, but weight is a new fact that was just revealed: the large e-cargo bike weighs 88 lb, 3.0 oz / 40 kg. Specialized has also put together a wide range of accessories to help you carry just about anything.

As we noted in the original article: “….The retail price will be $3,500.” That’s a noticeable jump from the Globe Haul ST’s $2,800. That may not be suitable for the budget-conscious buyer, but considering that long-tail cargo bikes typically start at more than $4,000, Specialized is set to shake up the market with this e-bike.
For parents who want to drive less and more and don’t have to take the car every time they need to drop off or pick up their children somewhere, the Specialized Globe Haul LT is a cost-effective alternative to driving. It’s also a lot more fun.”
