EP8 Drive Unit

EP8 Drive Unit


As of September 2020 the EP8 series is Shimano's new flagship E-bike system. This Drive Unit (DU-EP800) provides a maximum torque of 85Nm and weighs only 2.6Kg - that is 300g less than its predecessor.

It uses the same frame mount pattern as DU-E8000 and DU-7000, meaning bike manufacturers can use the same frame design between multiple Shimano drive unit models. Also, you should be able to upgrade your DU-7000 / DU-E8000 bikes relatively easily.
