About the Cannondale Moterra 3
An e-mountain bike with infinite capability. The shackles are off, go ride the unrideable. Again and again. It Rails Impressively precise. Uncommonly agile. With its low centre of gravity, modern geometry and short chain-stays, Moterra's handling is in a class of its own. One Size Doesn’t Fit All Riders come in all sizes. Proportional Response is the only design that addresses this fact, tailoring the suspension layout by size so that every rider gets optimal traction, suppleness and control. Power & Style Bosch's powerful Performance CX drive unit and a long-lasting PowerTube battery integrate cleanly into Moterra's burly carbon frame. The power and range to ride anything — in a beautiful package.

Built to go hard with 160mm of dialled suspension. Big, grippy tires. 29" wheels (27.5 on the S for the best fit). Properly wide bars and properly short stems. Powerful brakes and dropper posts. Utilising size-specific Centre-of-Gravity data, the suspension linkage is tailored by size so that every rider experiences optimised suspension performance while braking, climbing and descending. A Ballistic Carbon frame keeps the mass to a minimum. But since our engineers prioritised durability over gram-counting, confidence is built in. Proprietary Cannondale motor mount positions the Bosch drive unit low and forward in the frame, keeping the Centre of Gravity low and the chain-stays short for uncommonly agile handling. To protect the motor and battery from damage, Moterra features a sealed battery cover and a burly, trials-style skid plate.
