The Thok MIG-R is one of many bikes being imported to Australia by Ride Sports. The difference with Thok compared to many bike brands is they just do eMTBs. And they do a pretty good job of it.

Shimano STEPS E8000 is at the heart of it.

The MIG-R is a 150/140mm travel 27.5 Plus trail bike, with modern geometry creating for a slack yet agile alloy frame that rides surprisingly lightly on the trails.

Thanks to smart design, Thok have kept the weight of the Shimano STEPS E8000 battery low by placing it under the downtube in a protective case, and this also opens up room for a water bottle.

 

On the trails, it's lively and fun - but stay tuned for the full review in Issue #170!
