    We are please to announce that we are now stocking a select range of Raleigh Electric bikes. The Motus and Captus both share the same frame with the lowest step through/standover height of any electric bikes we have seen so far, with the smallest of the frame size options using a 26” wheel and the others a more traditional 700c.

The Motus starts at a very competative £2000.00 using Bosch’s popular tried and tested Active Line motor, this is a centrally driven motor which has stood the test of time, and is proven to be a reliable smooth motor, coupled up with a 400wh battery to give you a fantastic range.

Componentry on the £2000.00 Motus are exceptional, built in lights, Intergrated frame lock, Shimano hydrulic disc brakes and gears using SRAMS 10 speed wide range cassette, providing low end gears capable of climbing the steepest of hill.  The model up for £2150.00 uses a Shimano Nexus 8 speed hub gear, with its advantage being super low maintance and the ability of changing gear without moving forward, which is fantastic for starting on steep inclines or for pulling away at traffic lights.

The Captus Range starts at a cheaper price point of £1750.00, still using the Bosch Active Line motor but with a smaller battery, this goes down to a 300wh, but still, providing  a great range which is still a larger range then most other Ebikes at this price point using other Ebike systems. The rest of bike consist of Shimano Hydrulic disc brakes, Shimano Altus 9 speed gearing and intergrated frame lock. Again there is a Shimano 8 speed hub gear option coming in at a fantastic £1900.00.
