The Shootout on E-Mountain

Monday, September 18, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Tuesday, September 19, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.


Retailers will have the opportunity to test and review eMTB’s from participating brands, with the results being published in Electric Bike Action and Mountain Bike Action magazines (Hi-Torque Publications) following the event. Interbike, Hi-Torque Publications and Bootleg Canyon have created a specifically-designed course for the test rides to occur. This will help retail test riders with their model-over-model comparisons at specific points along the course, which will include an uphill climb among others.


Retailers will test as many of these bikes as they’d like, and will answer 4-5 closed-answer questions regarding the performance of each model following each ride. For each bike they ride, retailers will receive an entry to win a host of giveaways from sponsors. The more bikes they ride from the Shootout, the greater their chances to win. Prizes include a trip to Fall CycloFest in Charlotte, NC, VIP passes to CrossVegas, product from sponsors and more.



The first 100 retailers to participate get a backpack with Interbike SWAG. Each test ride and survey you complete gets you another entry to win one of these great prizes from our sponsors:

  • GRAND PRIZE:(1) eFlow e-mountain bike from Smartmotion – choice of Step Thru or Double Diamond
