Darrvin 29″ Crest 2022




  • Confidence inspiring MTB frame geometry with 29’’ wheels to smooth the trail.

  • Powerful and responsive Bafang 350W mid motor with ISIS Drive axle for added strength.

  • Front Suspension fork with a remote lock-out.

  • Ultra reliable BAFANG 1 x 9 drive-train with a wide gear range .

  • Aggressive tyres fitted to extra wide rims invite you to get rowdy.

  • With a wider bar and sport orientated components the CREST packs more options than a Swiss army knife.

GENERAL NOTES ON RANGE: Predicting range depends on a number of factors: eg. someone who weighs about 70Kg, riding across varied terrain with moderate undulation and a steady cadence of 70-80 rpm can control the range through battery management using the mode settings afforded by the control system. He/She could expect to get anything between 80-120Km from a single battery charge. Visit our FAQ Page for more general Q&A’s.

NOTES ON WEIGHT: A really lightweight mid-range e-bike weighs in at around 21-23Kg, provided its a standard 250watt mid-drive motor model with 300-500Wh battery. A super light carbon MTB e-bike with roughly the same motor and battery might come in at 18-20Kg. For instance a top end R 150 000 ($10 000 USD) Specialized e-bike weighs just over 20Kg. The weight is a consideration if you need to transport the bike on a rack or in the back of your vehicle, but removing the battery might save 4-5Kg already when attempting to lift the bike. Either way, at the moment there is not really a significant difference in weight between most of the available e-bikes in the market. Darrvin’s lightweight aluminum-alloy frame and compact components make for one of the lighter e-bike configurations out there in its price class and with the battery removed is an easy lift onto any bike rack.
