Based on the central position of the battery in front of the seat tube and the low position of the Shimano motor, we were able to achieve an optimum centre of gravity. The low and well-positioned centre of gravity provides the bike with outstanding riding characteristics which are extremely important in particular in wave low step-through frames which have the tendency to chatter and jitter when power is applied.
In the city/trekking sector, hub gear drivetrains have become more or less the standard. For the model year 2020, we have updated the hub gear frames with slider dropouts for smooth and easy chain tensioning. Furthermore, the dropouts on both frames, hub gear and derailleur drivetrain now have, besides the Racktime interface, standard carrier mounts.

A higher front end and a compact geometry make for a more upright and extremely comfortable riding position. Battery positioned extra low for improved handling.
