The Power to ride more trails! Class 1 and Class 2 E-bikes are legal at McDowell Mountain Regional Park so naturally they are a part of the Specialized Cactus Cup. We encourage all e-bikers to join us for 1 or more events!
Class 1 eMTB is a specific classification for sustainable use on trails, paths or riding areas. Class 1 eMTB models are defined as “a bicycle with fully operable pedals, and an electric motor under 750 Watts peak power that must be pedaled to activate the motor and that ceases to provide power above 20 mph”. In summary it’s a pedal assist e-bike.
