Progress in Lithium Battery Technology As the electric vehicle (EV) and ebike market continues its rapid growth in both the US and the UK, some exciting news has recently been announced which will have a major effect on the industry. Researchers have developed a new battery system which will allow EVs to be recharged almost instantaneously.  This technology, dubbed the ‘Ifbattery’ by its creators, can be produced cheaply and is environmentally friendly. It uses a system known as a flow battery, but has been adapted to work without the membranes usually used in such units. T..

Riese and Müller 2018 Electric Bikes

A look at the newly announced Riese and Müller 2018 range

 

Riese and Müller recently released details of their new range of e-bikes, which is billed as "the definition of pure, unadulterated freedom” because of its “integration, range and riding dynamics”. The collection features several new versions of familiar machines alongside some other, more innovative designs.

Celebrating 25 years of Riese and Müller 

Heading up the range is the Delite GT signature, which is essentially the e-bike Heiko Müller and Markus Riese would choose to ride themselves. Based on the popular Delite model, it is available as a limited edition with a range of high end features. Each model is numbered and supplied with a hand-signed certificate from Riese and Müller themselves. It is available in signature black from September 2017.

 

Reinterpreting a classic - Riese and Müller Charger

 


The New Charger takes the successful Charger design and partially integrates the Bosch PowerTube battery into the frame. It also gives the option of using the company’s DualBattery technology to give a better range. Its comfortable seat position makes it ideal for everyday use. It is also available in a Mixte version with an inclined top tube as well as in seven different equipment options. It can be purchased from October 2017 in either pearl white, electric red metallic or black matt.

 



“Perfectly integrated design and breathtaking riding dynamism”



Embodying a new concept in e-bike design, the new Supercharger integrates Riese and Müller’s DualBattery technology into the frame. Using two Bosch PowerTube batteries gives this model double the range. A Supercharger mountain e-bike will also be available, as well as 10 different equipment versions. It will be released in October 2017 in either urban silver metallic or electric blue metallic models.

 


Riese and Müller Roadster - “Total makeover”

 



The new Roadster is a fully remodelled version of this popular e-bike, which has been designed for fast road cycling with a minimalist style. The new design also has attractive detailing, including narrow, low-friction tyres and mudguards in the frame colour. The Roadster Mixte retains the attractive design and features a lower step through. Available from September 2017, it comes in three frame sizes, four equipment versions and offers a choice of white, matt black or electric green metallic.

 

Extending the Riese and Müller Packster range

 



The Packster 40 is a new departure for the company; this is the first time they have offered a compact E-Cargo-Bike. It has a loading length of 40cm and weighs a little under 30kg, so it’s a perfect way of bridging the gap between e-bikes and larger cargo bikes, without compromising on riding behaviour. The Packster system also allows you to choose how you want to set your bike up; the range of options includes a box or a carry system with a child seat.
