The New Scott Solace eRide
It has been a while since the last version of the Scott Solace was around and it has undergone some changes since we last saw it. Previously the Solace was an endurance road bike, but the new version sees the Solace being updated to become two electric bike options; an electric gravel bike and an electric road bike. All of the new Solace models feature the TQ HPR50 motor, which provides a weight/torque ratio of 1.8 kg for 50Nm. Unlike other electric gravel bikes and electric road bikes, the TQ system is also very lightweight meaning full bikes can weigh in at as little as 11.8kg/26lbs.
The new Solace provides a versatile platform with generous tyre clearance for gravel riding, but can also deal with road riding just as well. The Solace uses geometry inspired by the Scott Addict Gravel to provide an efficient, smooth ride. As a lot of cyclists who own an e gravel bike are going to want to spend a lot of time in the saddle, the Solace has space for a 160Wh range extender which sits alongside a standard water bottle cage and boosts the power of the internal 360Wh e bike battery.
Below are some of the main features of the Solace eRide road e bike and gravel e bikes ranges.

Scott Solace eRide Geometry
The geometry of the Solace eRide is the same whether you choose the e gravel bike or e road bike version. They borrow from the tried and tested Addict Gravel, which is already an accomplished gravel bike in it's own right.
