Seems like most e-MTB's are mired in the 50 pound weight class, and it will probably be a couple of years before OEM bikes that are affordable reach 40 pounds. However the manufacturers are combining mid-drives with batteries located as close to the bottom bracket as possible. What do the handling experts (not me by a long shot) think about this when compared to a FS MTB. Still cumbersome and difficult to steer or ??? Reason I ask is that I rode a Levo (not as optimized as some later e-MTB's IMO) on a gnarly downhill and it seemed pretty normal to me.
