The Subvert i/O models, with their latest Shimano electric pedal-assist motors, amplify your power output to allow for longer and faster rides in full confidence with their user-friendly riding platform. With its hardtail X6 alloy frame and high-end components, The Subvert I/O 9 offers the best there is in terms of electronic integration between its STePS E8000 motor, the battery and its XT Di2 components. No need for an extra battery for the Di2 rear derailleur; the I/O 9 has it covered since there's already one on the bike for the motor. Equipped with the 2019 Revelation RC fork with 35mm stanchions and DebonAir spring, the Subvert I/O 9 delivers small bump sensitivity and mid-stroke support for a smooth ride quality, enhanced by the new and powerful Shimano MT-520 4-piston disc brakes. Shimano's engineering and know-how deliver easy connection and component management through a centralized computer display at the handlebar and a downloadable E-Tube app for on-the-fly adjustment through your smart phone and a Bluetooth connection. All you will need to do is enjoy the ride.
Electronic drivetrain systems deliver excellent shifting, easy set up, and solid battery life. Here are some benefits of electronic shifting that you don't want to miss.
Electronic shifting systems use powerful servo motors to rapidly shift the chain. Because microprocessors and sensors constantly monitor every aspect of the system, they shift with surgical precision and without chain rub.
Many major systems have customizable shifting. Some have the ability to add remote shifters for common riding positions, and some even allow you to change the functions of the shifting buttons.
Electronic groupsets are responsive and consistent. There are no cables to stretch and wear out, so you get a flawless shift every time. The added bonus is you'll never have to replace a derailleur cable ever again.
