      Motor: 36 volts, 540W/H Impulse, located centrally.
      The high-capacity battery is secured to the seat tube.
      Gears: Nexus 8-speed.
      Range: approx. 90 km (flat terrain, average speed).

      With an electro bike every bike tour is a breeze! If you had few opportunities to cycle over the last weeks or if you are not sure concerning your fitness, but also with physical disabilities, every bike ride is a treat! The shiftable, low noise electric drive of our modern E-bike relieves you of some of the work and increases the pedal force up to 3 times ... So you can now book a bike tour together with cyclists who have different fitness level. Acclivity can be handled easily.

    • 5,5 04.07.2019 | Anthony R. St. Moritz and the Italian Alps

      Over the Dolomites- again

      A relatively easy ride through some stunning landscape. The first half of ride is definitely the best with amazing downhill runs and specular views. The second half is relatively flat riding on mostly good separated cycle-ways.
