Delite GTS (2019)

Be the first to review this product

After 25 years of constant development of E-Bikes, folding bikes and E-Cargo bikes, it's time to launch a new flagship onto the streets. To mark this anniversary, the two company founders Markus Riese and Heiko Müller developed an E-Bike inspired by their dreams: the Delite GT signature. It was specified exactly as they both imagined their dream bike to be. Its basic configuration boasts what we feel to be the best components available on the market, like the electronic Shimano XTR Di2 gear, FOX Factory suspension elements with practically frictionless Kashima coating, Syntace components and DualBattery technology. We call it perfection – both visually and technically. Every Delite GT signature is numbered and comes with a certificate signed by both company founders.

The Delite GTS.
Your aluminium E-Bike dream turned reality.

When you tackle a task by your own free will but with the highest of standards and jointly focused on one single, clear goal – only then does perfection ensue. This is precisely the mission pursued by the company founders Markus Riese and Heiko Müller, as they conceived and built the Delite GTS. The E-Bike of their dreams. Its basic configuration boasts what we feel to be the best components available on the market, like the electronic Shimano XTR Di2 gear, Fox Factory suspension elements with practically frictionless Kashima coating, Syntace components and DualBattery Technology. All this makes the Delite GTS not only the flagship of Riese & Müller, but also our labour of love.

R&M Delite GTS Video Review and Ride Test:


The ultimate E-Bike with top-of-the-range features: The high-precision electronic XTR Di2 11-speed derailleur gear offers shifting comfort at the highest technological level. The standard battery capacity of 1,000 Wh (DualBattery), in conjunction with the powerful Bosch Performance CX motor, offers supreme efficiency and maximum range. The Control Technology with full suspension, Schwalbe Super Moto-X Fat Tires and hydraulic Magura MT4 disc brakes bring riding pleasure to any terrain. Fox Factory suspension elements with Kashima coating as well as the seatpost, handlebar and stem from Syntace meet the highest demands. The extremely bright 1,250-lumen Supernova M99 Mini front light ensures maximum safety. An E-Bike that leaves nothing to be desired.

Drive

The Bosch system

Reliable, performance-oriented and innovative – these are the standards to which we hold our 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 DualBattery 1,000 Wh

For long tours with lots of luggage or routes with considerable height differences, the DualBattery remains the benchmark. Riders using their E-Bike to commute to work also have to charge their bike less often. The load on the two frame batteries is minimised by means of an alternating load in 5 % increments, which significantly increasing the service life. Using the included Bosch Standard charger, both batteries can be charged directly on the bike or at any normal socket once removed. Both can even be charged together on the bike. The charging time for a single battery from a fully discharged state is only 4.5 hours. Charging them on the bike together, both batteries are fully operational again after 9 hours. It is also possible to use just one battery.

Drive

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 Kiox Display

With the Bosch Kiox display, the E-Bike turns into the ultimate sparring partner for performance-driven riders. Various training modes and perfect handling, with special features such as tactile pressure points on the control unit, help you to continuously step up your performance. It is even possible to pair it with heart rate monitors via Bluetooth. The display made from scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass is easy to read in intense sunlight, while the magnetic holder ensures simple handling. The ultra-modern Kiox is small, robust, compact and ready for the E-Bike future.

Look forward to the obstacles that line your path.

And to potholes, lumps and bumps. Vibrations and sharp shocks are simply ironed out. Because with Control Technology – full suspension plus other safety components – the Delite GTS maintains contact with the ground on poor road surfaces and you remain in full control. As the flagship of Control Technology, only the very best components from Fox Factory have been used. The active rear swing arm, optimised front wheel suspension and co-sprung luggage carrier form the core of this technology. They ensure better road holding, a more sporty feel and increased safety at high speeds and in tricky situations. 

Because not every adventure starts on your doorstep.

The DualBattery Technology perfected by Riese & Müller ensures twice the range or far higher climbs, fewer charging breaks and longer-lasting riding pleasure. The batteries are so cleverly positioned that the extra weight has no noticeable impact on riding behaviour – and yet both are easy to remove. With the 1,000 Wh now available, completely new destinations can be reached and you no longer have to worry about your range in your daily routine.

 
 

 

Each piece a masterpiece.

The Delite GTS is the perfect combination of top-of-the-line elements available worldwide. This undoubtedly includes Fox Factory springs: the Kashima-coated, high-performance anodised lower legs are virtually frictionless, particularly sensitive and abrasion-resistant. Without its Syntace components, the Delite GTS would not be what it is either. The particularly sturdy carbon handlebar offers tremendous safety thanks to new types of fibre and extra-reinforced points. The Syntace Force stem and seatpost in high-strength and lightweight aluminium add the final touch to the Delite GTS.

Perfect precision.

The extremely fast Shimano XTR Di2 gear ensures ultimate shifting comfort and precision. Its electronic control unit allows immediate shifting actions and prevents incorrect operation. The hydraulic disc brakes impress with outstanding application of the braking force and uniquely constant performance in any situation. With the XTR elements, you experience maximum control, safety and riding pleasure in any weather and in all conceivable circumstances.

None

Always on high alert.

This lock knows all about quiet and loud noises: the Abus Bordo Alarm 6000A is activated as soon as you use it to secure your E-Bike. Move the bike only slightly and you'll hear a short, quiet sound. Attempt to steal it, and you'll trigger a 100 db alarm. Enough to frighten off any would-be thief. Naturally, this folding lock is also extremely strong and robust – and it closes with the same key as the battery lock, so you only need one key for your E-Bike.

 Rack

Load up, set off.

Baskets and panniers can be attached to the carrier with just one click using the MIK system from Basil. This extraordinarily stable system allows you to quickly swap bicycle accessories fitted with a MIK adapter plate. Accessories can be obtained from your dealer.

Super Nova M99 Mini

Proven vision.

No more sudden surprises with the Supernova M99 Mini front light. An impressive 1,250 lumens illuminate the road in a way that previously only car headlamps could manage. And even the 600-lumen dipped beam is far brighter than most conventional E-Bike headlamps. A brake light is integrated in the rear light to ensure that you are even safer on busy roads.

Cageless Bottle Holder

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 mounting studs on each side, specially designed for direct mounting of 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.
