The Fairfax E features 6061 aluminum tubing with an internal battery and internal cable routing, forged dropouts with rack and fender mounts and an integrated kickstand mount.
The Bafang rear hub motor provides 40Nm of torque in a compact and tidy package. Five levels of assist, accessed via a handlebar-mounted controller, means that riders can quickly dial in the level of assistance that best meets their needs and riding style. The controller also doubles as a display, showing speed and assist level selected.
The 340Wh in-tube battery is neatly integrated into the Fairfax E’s downtube, protected and giving the bike a sleeker look. The charging port is easily accessible, under a weather-resistant cover.
Hydraulic disc brakes provide smooth, controlled stopping in all conditions with minimal maintenance.
Shimano’s stalwart Altus 8-speed drivetrain smoothly and reliably glides between the gearing.
