Spotlight Mahle | –18,6%


You’ll definitely see it coming, but you might not hear it coming: the SIMPLON SPOTLIGHT MAHLE. Its super-slim design makes the e-bike a real eye-catcher. Its low weight, on the other hand, is a definite advantage when it comes to transport, storage and carrying it upstairs. The quiet, yet powerful hub drive unit Mahle X20 with up to 55 Nm ensures maximum riding pleasure. It is not only elegantly integrated into the frame but also supports the rider in near silence.

The price reduction shown refers to our RRP in the last regular model year. The prices displayed have already been reduced.


Clear the stage for the SPOTLIGHT MAHLE’s high-quality aluminium frame, which not only has a long service life but also offers the rider maximum stability.

The ultimate comfort upgrade is the adjustable seatpost, which makes getting on and off the bike significantly more comfortable.

Asphalt or gravel? A decision you won’t even really have to take thanks to the numerous configuration options for the SPOTLIGHT. The optional studded tyres ensure full riding pleasure even on rough terrain. And if ever an obstacle appears along the way, you can simply lift the lightweight bike over it.

Are you a minimalist when it comes to the weight of your bike, and you can easily do without electric power? Then the SPOTLIGHT II is probably the perfect trekking bike for you.


At first glance, it’s hard to tell that the SPOTLIGHT MAHLE is an electric trekking bike. Its power lies hidden in the barely audible and virtually invisible Mahle X20 hub drive unit and in the 250-Wh battery, which is housed in the down tube.

The assumption that the e-bike components must be heavy is unfounded. At only 17 kg, the Spotlight Mahle is and remains a lightweight that is agile to ride and effortless to transport.

Planning a longer tour? With the range extender, the bike’s range can be extended via an additional 175-Wh battery.

SIMPLON is known for its sophisticated technologies – top performance and appealing design are never mutually exclusive. Laser cutting and robot welding produce highly precise weld seams that ensure a sleek look. 

Harmoniously integrated and virtually noiseless, the drive unit by Mahle motivates you to tackle longer tours. And thanks to the trailer-ready technology, you’ll have all you need to bring plenty of provisions or even transport small passengers. An adapter connected to the stand mount creates a secure connection between the bike and trailer.
