Test result 

Stromer has set a new benchmark with the ST2 S: perfect ride performance, integrated design and top-end specification make this the well-deserved test winner for business pedelecs. 

myStromer as a manufacturer is associated with fast, top-performance pedelecs, and the ST2 S further cements this reputation. Pure riding pleasure and an adrenaline rush are guaranteed. The almost silent 500 watt motor accelerates powerfully, and has a fine-tuned response to your own riding style. And you’ll always be in the right gear thanks to the fully electronic XTR Di2 gear shifting system, which works swiftly and precisely via “tiptronic” controls. The battery, elegantly built into the downtube, is nudging up against the phenomenal kilowatt-hour mark with its 983 watt hours capacity, and that delivers a huge range for this class of bike. Among the long list of highlights on the ST2 S is a real star – the M99 Supernova lighting system, offering daytime running lights, a dipped beam and a main beam of up to 1250 Lumen. The rear light has a brake light function, and even the number plate is illuminated. Some test riders did identify just one issue: the display is elegantly mounted within the top tube, but this location makes it rather hard to read. It’s better to use the Stromer app via a smartphone on the handlebars.

What makes the Stromer ST 2 special is the well-considered application of industry-standard interfaces: pictured here is the universal charging port complying with the future standards IEC 68151-3-2 / DIN IEC/TS 61851-3-2 (VDE V 0122-3-2). But also on the Stromer ST 2 are GSM for mobile internet connection, GPS for position location and Bluetooth for connection with additional mobile devices. Located in the top tube is not just any old display, but rather an on-board computer with mobile internet, satellite positioning and the capacity to be accessed remotely. In case of theft this means that the vehicle can be located and disabled remotely – today still a futuristic feature, but in just a few years it will be functionality which is a matter of course in the Internet of Things.
