WEIGHT LESS, WAY MORE
Power up to trail riding’s next level with the Kenevo Super Light and rip the biggest trails like never before. Created by trail riders for trail riders, Kenevo SL is an e-MTB in a class by itself—a previously unattainable combination of light weight, responsiveness, and capability. Ultra-responsive handling and big mountain capability merge with the benefits of our Turbo Super Light system, enabling you to overcome the trail monsters that have been your nemeses until now. Flow up, over, and through the biggest trails in ways that were previously impossible.
Intuitively delivering up to 240 watts of power and 35 Nm of torque, our Turbo Super Light system puts an emphatic “E” in our award-winning Enduro, delivering more of what you want from your trail ride. More power to climb. More pop when you need it. More capability everywhere. More laps. More jumps. More drops. More stoke.
And it does this with less. Weighing in at just four kilos more than the Enduro and around five and a half kilos less than the Full Power Kenevo, the Kenevo Super Light is a featherweight e-MTB that redefines big mountain performance.
MOTOR & CELL
The Turbo Super Light motor and 320Wh battery are integrated and centralised in the chassis to improve handling responsiveness by decreasing the moment of inertia while powering up to 4.5 hours of ride support. (Want to go bigger? No prob, plug in the 160Wh Range Extender battery and you’re set for up to almost 7 hours total supported ride time.)
Regardless of where—or how—you ride, the Kenevo Super Light can be tuned to deliver exactly the ride you want thanks to its adjustable geometry. Six distinct settings allow you to hone handling characteristics to suit your style and terrain. Head angle can be set at 62.5, 63.5, or 64.5-degrees. Bottom bracket height can be fine-tuned up or down by 6mm.

With 170mm of plush, responsive, super-capable travel, the Kenevo Super Light eats up whatever you throw in front of it, from tree roots and trail chunder to massive G-outs and relentless hucks to flat.
Suspension that works this flawlessly is realiSed when every component of the whole is developed together in an integrated approach. Total suspension performance involves chassis stiffness, kinematics, leverage rates, spring curves, damping performance, and tunability, all designed and working together to achieve a singular, elevated ride quality on the trail.
We refer to this integrated approach to suspension development as Ride Dynamics, and we have a one-of-a-kind team of trail-riding engineers, technicians, and fabricators working together out in the dirt and in our state-of-the-art innovation centre to ensure that every component is optimised and functioning in harmony with every other.
The Six Bar linkage of the Kenevo SL was pioneered on our DH World Championship-winning Demo and later adapted to the Enduro. It represents the ultimate big-trail suspension linkage, delivering an unmatched combination of control, big-hit bump force management, pedalling performance, and durability.
At its heart, the Six Bar is an FSR design, primarily using a four- bar linkage with a “Horst Link” forward of the dropouts. These four bars with the Horst Link enable our engineers to optimise the axle path for bump force management and to tune anti-rise and anti- squat for pedalling performance. It also decouples braking forces, so the control delivered by active suspension is there for you even when you’re grabbing a handful.
The additional “tension links” that drive shock compression give us the engineering freedom to separately and independently control leverage rate and axle path, broadly enhancing suspension capability. Compressing the shock from these tension links also eliminates side-loading of the shock. Side-loading can cause binding and shock failure, and removing that from a suspension improves performance (reduced stiction means smoother and more responsive suspension) and durability.
Finally, the Six Bar design improves handling by lowering and centralising mass (linkage and shock), reducing the centre of gravity and moment of inertia. This, in turn, translates to more stable yet responsive handling and a livelier feel on the trail.
BE ONE WITH YOUR BIKE
S-Sizing is based on what matters; rider size and style, not inseam. Six sizes, all with similar headtube lengths and standover, allow you to choose the size that best suits your individual style. Smaller S-Size numbers are going to be nimble, thanks to their shorter reach and front-center measurement, while bigger S-Sizes deliver more stability and a roomier ride.
