Propelled by a Fazua pedal-assist powertrain in the downtube, it strikes the perfect balance of giving just enough support to make the climbs a bit easier without every feeling like you are being pulled along. Comparing this back to back with a standard gravel bike on the same on & off-road loop, my heartrate was always just as high riding the Cairn, just my speed up every climb was noticeably faster. While most dropbar e-bike setups are literally a drag any time you get above their 25km/h limiter, the Fazua-powered Cairn was just as comfortable and natural feeling while pedaling at 20km/hr as it was at 40.
I finished my short time on the Cairn Cycles e-adventure grinning ear to ear and very impressed by the whole package.
We caught up with the chaps from The Rider Firm at the Eurobike show. They’re the people behind Hunt bike wheels, but they were excited to show us something else they’ve been working on: a new gravel e-bike.
The Rider Firm gave CI.N an early look at a new project the business is undertaking alongside drive systems manufacturer Fazua, announcing the creation of a own-brand electric bike label dubbed Cairn.
