Rather as it did with the eBike City, which is more of a city bike (obviously), Gtech attacked the mountain bike market by undercutting many of the more established electric bicycle rivals on price, without skimping on features. 

On the Gtech eScent, a very solid basic frame with front suspension is augmented with a motor (a rather powerful, 500W one) that assists your pedalling automatically, based on resistance put up by hills and other obstacles.

At 19kg it weighs less than a lot of e-bikes built for off-roading, and the Shimano Deore gears and disk brakes are a good bundle at this price. It lacks the power and range (you'll get about 20-30 miles) of some heavier bikes but particularly for cyclists making the switch to electric mountain biking, it's more fun to ride.

Finally, although it is marketed as a mountain bike, it's also a great little urban cruiser, which laughs in the face of Britain's many potholes, flattens out hills, and takes you away from the lights like a Ferrari.
