Diode 42lb Shimano eMTB

The LaMere Diode with Shimano E8000 Motor Built Any Way You Like!

LaMere Cycles is proud to announce the arrival of the all new Diode, the first 100% engagement full carbon 27.5+/29er AllMtn full suspension E-Bike powered by the instant engagement Shimano E8000 motor system. This system is the lightest, smoothest, and most powerful 250w motor on the market and features a completely tunable user interface.  Carry an extra 5.5lb battery for longer rides and quickly swap it out with the turn of a key, which is why we love the lighter external battery mount.

Just a little uphill air on the Diode...

Check out the Diode in Fat Bike Mode!

Simply mounting a 4" Terrene Cake Eater studded 27.5 tire on the rear on a 50mm wide rim allows it to work surprisingly well on the snow, especially groomed singletrack or snowmobile trails.

 The XT Di2 shifting runs off the main battery, and the new Firebolt Switch Unit incorporates the same design and shifting feel as XT Di2 and makes flipping through power assist modes as easy as shifting gears. Read more on the Shimano E8000 system HERE.

Like all LaMere bikes we will customize your build any way you like and sell it to you directly at an unbeatable price!

Shimano Drive System

The amazing new Shimano E8000 motor and drive system features nearly 100% engagement  with a completely user tunable interface. Carry an extra 5.5lb battery for longer rides and quickly swap it out with the turn of a key. Deore XT cranks with normal Q-factor and Shimano Hollowtech II bottom bracket for added strength and direct power transfer. Unlike other E-Bikes that suffer from huge lash or play in the cranks, the Shimano motor in combination with the world's best instant engagement Onyx hubs creates a fully engaged riding experience unlike any other E-Bike.

Custom

Like all LaMere bikes the Diode can be built up just the way you want with any grouppo, wheelset, suspension, tire combo, and cockpit you want. We can also sell you just the Diode frame with complete Shimano motor, battery, cranks, display and electrical system, and Fox Float DPS Trunnion Mount Factory shock for $4350.

For an additional $440 add an XT Di2 rear derailleur, rear shifter, cassette and chain. The Di2 runs off the main battery so there is no need to ever recharge,  and it uses the same display unit as the main system, making this a versatile and easy to use system.
