Need help keeping up with the chain-gang? Want to feel like your legs are 20 years younger? E-Road bikes have come on a long way in the last two years. Orbea led the way in creating an E-Road bike that looked fast, elegant & subtle in the Gain model. With similar options from Bianchi & Focus now available, we have your E-road bike needs covered. 

E-Leisure & Urban

Great for long canal tow path rides, doing the weekly shop or beating the traffic & commuting to work. Our leisure & urban range of bikes cover 'sit up and beg' easy step-through machines, to fast urban commuters equipped with lights, rack & mud-guards from some of the best brands available in the UK. We look after all E-Bikes with a FOC 3 years service package.

Bosch Motors

Bosch motors come in four flavours: Active-Line, Active-Line Plus, Performance Line & Performance Line CX.  All offer the superb reliability, excellent diagnostics & ease of use you would expect from Bosch products.

 

The key difference is the power they deliver, notably the torque, which starts at 45NM (Active Line) & rises to 75NM (Peformance Line CX). This is the 'push' you get when the motor turns & makes the difference between a gentle leisure bike & a mountain climbing beast.

Active Line

40nm torque, 250% drive, gentle support, perfect for city trips.

Active Line PLUS

50nm torque, 270% drive, mild support, perfect for city trips and short tours.

Performance Line

63nm torque, 275% drive, provides more power during start-up, aiding powerful riding in any situation.

Performance Line CX

75nm torque, 300% drive, sporty acceleration even in alpine terrain, without changing gear.
