Do e*thirteen products have weight/usage type limits?


We don't have weight limits on any of our products, but we do recommend sensible product selection based on a multitude of uses cases/scenarios.


Heavier and more aggressive riders should be aware of more frequent service needs for their use cases. More frequent servicing of dropper posts, hubs and wheel tensioning and truing are the norm for heavier and more aggressive riders. If lightweight componentry is used in conjunction with a heavy or particularly aggressive or high-milage use case, service needs on things like lightweight wheels will be notably increased.


Here is an article where you can read about the intended use for each of our different product categories: XCX, TRS, and LG1? Base, Plus and Race? What does all that mean?


If you still have questions, feel free to reach out to us and we are happy to help recommend the appropriate product based on things like how/where the product is going to get ridden, rider weight, and lightness vs durability preferences.
