Gearing Options:

You can choose between models with a traditional gearing system or models with a gear hub.  Gear hubs require much lower maintenance and allow you to shift while stopped.  Unlike a conventional drive train, if you don't have the opportunity to downshift before you stop, you can still shift down to an easier gear to make starting easier.  You don't have to worry about your chain falling off, or your shifting going out of adjustment.

With a gear hub the chain can be completely enclosed by a chain glider so you don't have to worry about cleaning or oiling your chain.  The chain will last much longer, so there is a much lower cost of ownership, as the gear hubs generally don't need to be replaced like a conventional gearing system.

9 SPEED SHIMANO ALIVIO - 327% Gear Ratio

The Alivio is characterised by high durability and offers enough range for trekking use with its nine gears. Thanks to the high stiffness of the components and the flat design, the shifting system is not susceptible to defects.


With its eight gears, the Nexus is a good companion on trekking tours or in everyday life.


A hub gear specially developed for pedelecs that also supports the more powerful motors.  

ENVIOLO TR - 380% Gear Ratio

The Enviolo stepless system takes cycling to a new level. With the twist grip, the cadence can be continuously adjusted. The gears on the pedelec also combinable with more powerful motors.  

Detailed specifications of each component:


The motorsport tyre for bike and pedelec! Its modern, dynamic tread is designed for speed, in combination with the ADDIX rubber compound. The Super Moto rolls very easily, yet creates an optimal grip level even at higher speeds.

Schwalbe Super Moto 62-584


Excellent choice for SUV bikes. Johnny Watts combines 60mm width smooth running on hard surfaces with long durability and puncture protection, like no other profile. Off-road instilling confidence, while on pavement rolling whisper-quiet. Versatile, deep tread for a wide range of uses from asphalt to off-road. Blocks with large contact areas for excellent, low-vibration rolling characteristics and high durability. Even, good-natured cornering behavior on hard surfaces.

Schwalbe Johnny Watts 60-584


This disc brake impresses with solid workmanship and high-quality materials. It benefits from the technical expertise of Shimano. The One-Way-Bleeding bleeding system allows easy maintenance, the grip width of 75 mm is also suitable for smaller hands. Its versatile design suits the numerous bike types and is always a good and inexpensive alternative.


A modern, powerful headlight specially developed for entry into the premium class. Thanks to proven lens technology, the LED headlight of the smallest design brings 35 lux to the road, an exceptional performance in this price class and product size, including parking light and daytime running LEDs. Large light openings to the side increase all-round visibility and thus safety.



In its compact format, the MYC headlight provides good illumination of the road; with a luminosity of 50 lux, it illuminates the near field area in front of the bike evenly and brightly. An additional plus point: the light strips on the side make you and your bike clearly visible in traffic.

Lumotec MYC 50 Lux


More safety and better visibility in road traffic: The Busch & Müller Toplight Line Brex uses a gyroscope sensor to determine the braking process and displays this brightly to the rear.

Busch & Müller Toplight Line Brex Bremsrücklicht


A powerful rear light that contributes to optimal visibility of the rider. The light beam shines very brightly both to the rear and to both sides. The curved optics also fit perfectly on compact luggage racks.

The Trekking Town handlebar offers very good all-round properties, and its ergonomic bend and slight rise make it an ideal fit for trekking and touring bikes that can also be used for everyday use.

Trekking Town



The City Cruiser handlebars ensure an upright riding position. It is higher, has a pleasant bend and thus provides increased riding comfort.

 City Cruiser


With the Stuttgart handlebar you get the most upright seating position. This handlebar builds up high and has a clear bend that is aimed in the direction of a Dutch bike, but is by no means unsafe to ride on a pedelec.

Stuttgarter Bügel


The further development of the Tour luggage rack comes with a special attachment below the wheel guard to achieve an even more elegant design. The side rails and the Racktime-ready system are of course still on board.
