The small German bike manufacturer, Liteville, is mainly known for its super high-quality aluminium mountain bikes. However, the Liteville 301 CE MK1 wants to be an uncompromising eMTB. And that’s exactly why the engineers at Liteville recycled the basic design of the classic 301 to develop an entirely new bike platform around the Shimano STEPS E8000 engine.

SQlab 6OX saddle: “This saddle is actually marketed as an eMTB saddle but works just as wel on a pedal bike.

“Saying Tune know carbon fibre is an understatement, and the Wassertrager 2.0 delivers exactly what you’d expect. At 9 grams, you can barely feel it in your hand.

"One of my least favourite things about long days on the MTB is the chicken-winged hand and arm position. It drives me bonkers being locked in. I wanted diversity. I wanted comfort. I wanted freedom dammit! I’d heard tales of German touch-point experts SQlab developing just the gear I’d been looking for..."
