There may be no literal superlative of mountain biking enthusiasm, but the Delite mountain will show you what it looks like. Every performance-driven rider will be amazed by the incredible dynamics of the high-torque Bosch Performance CX motor. Along with the battery and shock absorber, the motor is installed in a particularly low and central position, allowing a level of handling that was previously only possible with un-motorised mountain bikes. Thanks to Control Technology with full suspension, the Delite mountain can conquer any terrain. And by the time you experience the superb traction – even at low speeds – you’ll be lost for words.

The Delite mountain.
A challenge for every mountain.

There may be no literal superlative of mountain biking enthusiasm, but the Delite mountain will show you what it looks like. Every performance-driven rider will be amazed by the incredible dynamics of the high-torque Bosch Performance CX motor. Along with the battery and shock absorber, the motor is installed in a particularly low and central position, allowing a level of handling that was previously only possible with un-motorised mountain bikes. Thanks to Control Technology with full suspension, the Delite mountain can conquer any terrain. And by the time you experience the superb traction – even at low speeds – you’ll be lost for words.

Delite Mountain Model Options

The Delite Mountain is available in two models: the Mountain and the Mountain Rohloff:

  • The Mountain features the lightweight and efficient Shimano Deore XT 11-speed derailleur gear.
  • The Mountain Rohloff features the Rohloff E-14 speed hub with electronic shifting.  You can master any mountain with the extremely robust, low-maintenance electronic Rohloff E-14 14-speed hub gear with a massive gear range up to 520%. Shifting is possible while stopped, or while coasting and it will automatically downshift to the gear of your choice when you stop.  With the electronic shifting, shifts take only 180 ms, and you can shift 3 gears at a time by holding the button down.
    • Choose this option if you want a long lasting, reliable drive train with very little maintenance.
    • Being able to shift while stopped or coasting is another important benefit.
    • The Rohloff E-14 hub will save you money in the long run - you won't have to replace your cassette, chain and derailleur, and the chain will last a very long time.
    • Electronic shifting is very fast and reliable - the indexing is in the hub, not the shifter, so it won't go out of index.
    • The gear ration of 526% gives you an incredible climbing gear, as well as the ability to keep pedalling at higher speeds.

The Bosch system

Reliable, performance-oriented and innovative – these are the standards to which R&M holds their E-Bikes, as well as all components and especially the drive system. That's why all Riese & Müller E-Bikes are equipped with the industry-leading Bosch drive system.

Bosch Drive Unit

 

Bosch Performance CX motor

The Performance CX is the most powerful Bosch E-Bike motor ever – with pedal assistance of up to 300%, a maximum torque of 75 Nm, very sporty start-up characteristics and pedalling rate assistance up to 120 rpm. With “Direct Flow” you have a powerful push on the back wheel from speeds of just 20 rpm. Whether it be uphill or on the flat, this acceleration will inspire you. Another highlight in the new Performance CX motor is the eMTB mode, which replaces the previous Sport mode (this is displayed as Sport mode on the Intuvia Display). Here, the progressive motor assistance automatically adapts to the individual riding style regardless of pedal pressure. This ensures optimum assistance at all times, which really pays off on climbs.

Bosch Power Pak 500

Bosch Powerpack 500

With a capacity of 13,4 Ah, this premium lithium-ion battery has an energy reserve of 500 Wh and is designed to be mounted on the carrier. With the Bosch Standard charger provided, the 500 Wh carrier battery is fully charged and ready to be used again in just 4.5 hours. Like all Bosch batteries, it can be removed or charged directly on the bike.

Bosch Intuvia Display

Bosch Intuvia Display

The Intuvia Display gives you full control and a perfect overview at all times. It provides information about battery status, range, daily mileage, total mileage, ride time, current motor power, time, speed and average speed – clearly legible in any level of sunlight. On our automatic E-Bike models, the automatic version of the display also offers an option for controlling the pedal frequency. A USB interface allows MP3 players and mobile phones to be charged while riding too. It is operated via a remote control conveniently mounted on the handlebar grip.

Control Technology

Look forward to the obstacles that line your path.

Only an E-Bike with true full suspension keeps ground contact on poor roads – and keeps you in full control. The active rear swing arm and optimised front wheel suspension form the core of the Control Technology. They ensure better road holding and safety at high speeds and in tricky situations. Vibrations and hard knocks like those experienced on cobbles or kerbs are significantly diminished.

 
DualBattery

Twice the range. Twice the riding pleasure.

Riese & Müller is doubling the range of its E-Bikes with dual battery technology – in other words, by adding a second battery. This steps up battery capacity to 1,000 Wh. Using a charger, both batteries can be charged at the same time. Depending on your needs, you can also use just one battery to go on a ride. Its dual battery technology puts Riese & Müller at the top of its class in terms of riding range.

Safe and super-bright lighting

A bright future.

Always ride with excellent road illumination thanks to the IQ-X headlamps from busch+müller. Only daylight is brighter than their exceptional brightness of over 100 lux. With its very wide-sweeping and homogeneous large-area illumination of the street, you won’t miss a thing. They are operated via the Bosch display, while the energy is supplied via the battery. The Tail Light from Supernova makes you very easy to see from the rear. At the same time, it is hardly noticeable and very discreetly mounted on the rear disk brake.

None

One saddle for all gradients.

The enjoyment of E-biking is not just riding uphill, but traditional downhill riding as well. A normal high saddle can be troubling here. With the TranzX seatpost, the saddle can be quickly lowered up to 100 mm by remote control on the handlebar to give you significantly better control of your Delite mountain – specifically on challenging terrain.

None

With no holder, there’s no holding back.

The E-Bike features two water bottles, but without a single holder attached. This technical feat is revolutionary. The front cover plate of the frame is equipped with two plastic pegs on each side, both left and right, specially designed for direct mounting of the cageless water bottles from Fabric. It doesn’t get any easier than this when it comes to keeping two bottles within perfect reach during a ride.

Bag in easy reach.

The frame bag can be clipped into a free battery mount if you're only using one battery. This enables you to safely store everything you'd otherwise keep in your trouser pocket and concentrate fully on riding.

None

Steal success from thieves.

With the ABUS Bordo 90 cm folding lock, your e-bike can be securely fastened to virtually anything. If you want to continue your journey, it can be compactly folded up, disappears into a pouch and is Velcro-fastened to the bicycle frame. The lock, with its ultra-secure articulated design, weighs just 1,120 g and clicks shut simultaneously with the battery lock.

None

Packed for adventure.

Even with our sportiest E-mountain bike, you’re not always out trying to exert yourself. Whether for tours, biking trips or shopping in town, the carrier can be more than just convenient. The fact it fastens directly to the frame means it is very stable and enjoys the benefits of suspension thanks to Control Technology. So the excellent riding characteristics of the Delite mountain are maintained even with a full load. For more storage space, you can attach panniers on both sides. And if you want to go on a sporty ride again, you can very easily remove the carrier at any time.
