MAHLE Range Extender e185: Lightest range extender for lightest e-bike drive


The new e185 e-bike range extender from MAHLE is the only range extender that fits into a standard drink holder. At only 1.1 kilograms, it is the lightest on the market and fits perfectly with the lightest e-bike drive: the successful MAHLE X20. Fully charged, the e185 with its 171 watt hours can support the battery integrated in the frame for up to 60 kilometers. Ideal for anyone who wants to ride their MAHLE X20 for even longer.
