Diamondback launched the CORAX 1.0 to shred as fast uphill as it will down. No matter what the trails throws at you, the Corax 1.0 has 140mm of suspension travel with BOOST spacing, 27+ wheels, BOSCH CX drive and Shimano SLX 11spd gearing. No longer need you suffer the uphill struggle, the ride up is now as much fun as the fast descent. Technical sections on the climb, that may have required, at the very least, a dab down of the foot, is now taken with relative ease. The Bosch CX drive system paired with their 400wh battery gives you the extra bit of oomph when you need it. Combined with Shimano's SLX 11 speed gearing the Corax 1.0 is a bike built for fun and excitement. Rockshox front and rear suspension takes the rough with the smooth and ensures you keep the bike firmly planted over roots and round berms. Braking is assured with Shimano hydraulics. And at this price you'll be hard pushed to find a better, quality E-bike. It handles well and looks great - Diamondback know how to build quality bikes and the Corax is a great example.

Before buying this I went to a demo day and tried the 2019 ebike fleet from a variety of manufacturers using the bosch performance cx, yamaha and shimano step motor systems. The bosch system with e-mtb mode (available as an update on this bike) matches your pedalling best and gives progressive levels of assistance.
Whilst those bikes ranged from £2800-5500, and older hardtails hover around £2000, the Corax gives you a full suspension e-bike for less than £2000, with all the future updates bosch will make to their cx motors (the only difference I found was the latest gen seemed to be faster in turbo mode, but the Corax level I feel I can handle).
The plus size tires and decent suspension means that it handles single track with ease, although I've yet to try more serious trails. Also the brakes even when not bedded in feel good.
