Shimano adds largest e-bike batteries to Steps range

Shimano, Inc., a Japanese multinational manufacturer of cycling components, has introduced three new e-bike batteries into its Shimano Steps line-up including internal and external versions of its 630Wh largest capacity batteries for even longer rides, reports.

Much like other Shimano Steps batteries, the new BT-E8036, BT-E8035-L and BT-E8016 offer an extremely long lifetime. “Even after 1000 full charge cycles the new batteries will still hold 60% of their capacity,” the company says.

Battery capabilities

The high-performance BT-E8036 becomes Shimano’s largest integrated battery with a range expanding 630Wh capacity. The BT-E8035-L integrated battery has the same dimensions but comes with a smaller 504Wh capacity and a faster 4-hour charging time (80% charge in 2.5 hours). As well as the two downtube integrated options, the new 630Wh BT-E8016 becomes Shimano’s largest external battery, coming with a new fitting port, the BM-E8016 battery mount.

With these new additions offers a choice of 10 batteries with either rear carrier, external type or downtube-integrated positions and faster-charging 418Wh or 504Wh batteries or extended riding capacity 630Wh options.
