With a Class 1 rating, the DeVinci E-Cartier LTD we had on test uses a Shimano EP801 drive unit that has 250w and 85Nm of torque and a 725Wh battery. While the alternate models have the Shimano EP6 and a smaller battery.
Other unique details of the LTD are a Shimano Deore 11-speed drivetrain and Deore hydraulic disc brakes. The last standout of the LTD is the SR Suntour Mobie 34 fork with 100mm of travel.
The E-Cartier sits on 29″ wheels and is available in sizes Small, Medium, and Large. Starting at $3799, with the LTD model going for $4399.
Circling back to the integrations of the E-Cartier I mentioned earlier. The E-Cartier has a unique enclosure that wraps the stem. This enclosure is host to the headlight and the Shimano Display Unit. It also doubles as a cable guide to keep all of our cables nice and tidy.
The battery is removable from the frame with a key and has a very low profile cover that disappears into the downtube of the frame.
DeVinci takes a non-traditional approach to the rear half of the frame design. The seat stays run very low and parallels the chain line. Coming out of the back of the dropouts is a well designed rear rack that integrates very nicely into the rear design of the E-Cartier.
