Whether you're riding through loamy forests, bombing down epic alpine peaks, or shredding across sandy desert trails, you need a mountain bike that can absolutely rip. Full-suspension is the way to go for most mountain bikers looking to get the maximum rush from their rides, and there's no better way to enhance an awesome trail bike's qualities like an electric-assist motor. Say hello to the Redemption 50.
The Redemption 50 is powered by an E7000 drive system from Shimano, the most accomplished and respected bicycle component maker in the world. The E7000 system is a dedicated off-riding riding platform, which means it was made specifically for the demands of mountain biking. These include a rugged and durable design for a long life of use and abuse on rugged trails, as well as a lightweight and minimal construction that keeps the bike's center of gravity as low as possible. This makes the Surplus handle as well as the very best aluminum hardtail bikes that don't feature an electric-assist motor. The E7000 system sports 250 watts of available power, with a top speed of 20mph. To power the drive system, the Surplus 50 comes with a Shimano E8020 battery with 500Wh for quick charging capabilities and enough range for all-day, epic rides, as well as multi-day bikepacking trips. Its sleek, integrated design adds to the bike's clean aesthetics. Four available settings let you customize the amount of power you want, and it's easy to switch instantly at the press of a button at your fingertips.
For precise shifting and long-term reliability, we built the Redemption 50 with Shimano Deore derailleurs and shifters, featuring a 34-tooth single chainring and a 10-speed cassette with a 11-42-tooth gear spread. This is an incredible range of gears that will suit the most powerful riders' needs on the flats and descents, as well as giving maximum climbing prowess to all riders. The hydraulic disc brakes are also from Shimano, while the cockpit components-handlebar and stem-are from our house brand, Devox. To maximize your ability to position yourself properly for any descent, no matter how technical, we equipped the Surplus 50 with a dropper seatpost from the saddle elevation masters at KS. Finally, the bike comes equipped with a RockShox Sektor Debonair suspension fork, with 150mm of travel, which is the perfect amount for an all-around trail bike that can go anywhere and handle any type of terrain.
The Redemption 50 really is the ultimate trail bike. Its refined geometry and high-quality frame make for a bike that handles like a dream, as well as providing a comfortable riding position for all-day shredding. The added bonus of an electric-assist motor means that you'll be able to ride farther, faster, and for longer than you ever have before. So what are you waiting for?!

Wider than standard yet narrower than fat, plus-size rims and tires hit the sweet spot in grip, stability, and speed, giving you more confidence on technical terrain. Compared to a standard tire you’ll feel grip in places you wouldn’t expect thanks to a bigger contact patch and greater rollover clearance. More air volume allows lower tire pressures which softens bumps and increases float on sand or snow. Whether you’re a novice or an expert, the benefits of plus-size tires and rims will amplify your mountain biking fun.
A dropper seatpost allows you to quickly lower and raise your seat to give you an ideal riding position. Dropping your seat creates a lower center of gravity for better control and maneuverability on steep descents, while raising it puts you at normal riding height for efficient pedaling.
Construction can include either hydraulic- or cable-actuated systems and the post’s travel can either be infinitely adjustable or stopped at set intervals, depending on the model.
Dropper seatposts come in standard lengths and diameters and vary by the amount of travel.
