Sports retailer Decathlon has introduced its electric city bike, the BTWIN LD 920 E, to the UK market, following its initial launch in the EU in September. The company is also gearing up for a potential release in the US, as the e-bike has been featured in Decathlon's 2024 catalog, indicating an upcoming introduction in the American market.
The LD 920 E, or E-LD 920, is equipped with a 250W mid-drive motor from OWURU, boasting 600W peak power and 65 Nm torque. Riders can choose from three assistance levels or opt to turn off the engine. The e-bike is powered by a 702Wh Economy battery, delivering an impressive range of up to 150 km (~93 miles) in Economy mode. The battery can be fully recharged in less than five hours and is designed to maintain full capacity for at least 500 cycles.
Notable features of the LD 920 E include a Headshock suspension fork with 30 mm travel for added comfort, Tektro Hydraulic disc brakes for efficient stopping, and an integrated color display providing information on mode selection and remaining battery range. The display also includes a built-in USB-C port for convenient phone charging. The e-bike comes with integrated lighting, mudguards, a kickstand, a pannier rack, and a Ring Lock 920 ART2 for security.
Connectivity features include GPS tracking with 4G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth capabilities, allowing riders to monitor the location of their bike. The tracking service is complimentary for the first year, with a subsequent monthly charge of €2 (~£1.7).
The LD 920 E is available in two frame options, high or low, constructed from 6061 aluminum. Each frame type comes in four sizes, with the medium model weighing 59.5 lbs (~27.0 kg). The e-bike is currently available in the UK for £3,199, and while details on the US launch and pricing remain undisclosed, its inclusion in the 2024 catalog suggests an imminent introduction to the American market.
