The Bowhead RX™ integrates the Bowhead FLOW™ articulating front-end from our award-winning Bowhead Reach™bike with the new single-pivot MX-style rear swingarm and suspension system for a nimble and agile ride. Traversing off-cambered and rough terrain is a breeze, and the RX provides endless opportunities for access and exploration whether you’re hammering down a paved road, navigating a gravel track, flowing cross-country, or shredding single-track mountain trails. The RX features the Bosch Performance CX eMTB motor and electronics system that provides seamless torque-sensing assistance, amplifying the power of arms by up to 3.5 times, and the electronic shifting SRAM Eagle 12-speed drivetrain. The motor and batteries are mounted mid-bike, through a superbike MotoGP-style aluminum subframe, to create the ideal low center of gravity and roll. The RX is uniquely tuned to each riders’ thirst-for- adventure profile to provide a truly custom experience.

Brakes: Performance (Standard) vs. Premium (Upgrade)

  • Premium brakes allow for higher performance on more challenging terrain

  • For specific brands please consult our customer experience rep -

Rotors: 203mm (Standard) vs. 220mm (Upgrade)

  • Upgrading to a 220mm rotor will provide more braking power with the same amount of hand pressure applied, thus making it easier to stop. A larger diameter rotor reduces the force required to produce the same amount of braking power, prevents brake fading and provides more security. Large rotors are a must for heavier riders. Always consider the total weight of the rider, bike, and backpack/luggage.

Wheels: Tubed (Standard) vs. Tubeless (Rear Only – Upgrade)

  • Upgrading to tubeless is a matter of preservation, it mitigates the chances of being stranded in the middle of nowhere with a flat tire. Tubeless setup is a tire with goop in it that seals the puncture quickly.

  • If you decide to keep the standard tubed setup it is important to always ride with spares and your tool kit, just in case you encounter any issues.

  • Tannus Inserts - foam inserts/alternative to tubeless

    • Only available in 24” and 27”
