Shadow + puts the most tension on the derailleur of any shift system, meaning less chain drops and no chain slap. Shimano's Deore series has been on the market for more than 30 years and has been constantly optimized and enhanced. It features impressive, tried-and-tested technology and is extremely reliable, well-engineered and easy to use. Shimano Deore gears have proven their worth for many decades and are indispensable premium components even in the E-Bike sector. Shimano Shadow + is featured on 10-speed Deore or 11-speed Deore XT - with a lite version on Alivio 9 speed.
The norm for most bikes, with great ratio range, lots of low speed torque as well as top end gears for high speeds, and easy access to service and change flats. A more dynamic, snappier shifting performance. For eBikes shifting over the entire range when the bike is at rest can be a problem, a challenge less active cyclists face at first. They can get your trousers dirty if you aren't careful. Good quality gears can last with frequent maintenance, but will wear out faster than internal gears and belt drives.
Daily commuting on an eBike will put you ahead of the pack every time, but it pays to be prepared. Fenders keep the spray off your face, back and feet. A rear carrier allows you to use bags. Lights that are integrated with your eBikes battery. A chainguard keeps your chain & trousers clean. Integrated frame locks for quickie stops. And a nice bell to politely tell people to get out of your way!
