You are looking for an electric bike and the Riese & Müller models keep catching your eye.
But what makes them premium electric bikes and are they worth the price?
When you pay the extra money for a Riese & Müller e-bike you can be sure that it is being invested in the best quality components on the market.
What makes Riese & Müller so good?
Riese & Müller have won multiple design awards for the innovative bikes they have manufactured over the relatively short history of the business.
Most recently, Riese & Müller demonstrated this in winning both the Design & Innovation Award plus the Eurobike Gold Award for the outstanding Superdelite.
Looking more closely at the Superdelite, this bike is far ahead of the competition. Here are some of the reasons why:
- Rohloff E14 hub with electronic shifter and
- Gates carbon belt drive
- Full suspension with Fox float upgrade
- Dropper seatpost
- Ergon GP3 grips
- Schwalbe Rock Razor tyres
- Bosch SmartphoneHub with GPS navigation
- Paired to Komoot and Strava through COBI
- Dualbattery technology for huge range
- The latest Bosch Gen4 Performance CX motor.
Riese & Müller bikes are not competing to be the lowest price electric bike. They are competing to be the best quality electric bike money can buy. And they are winning this convincingly across the range.
The e-bike market is very competitive, which is great news for consumers. So if you see a bike you think is similar to a Riese & Muller for less money, go through every component on the bike, if you have time. You will soon see why a Riese & Müller will cost more.
I thought I’d share this comment from one of our customers Paul Wilkins, as he makes some interesting points in this review he left on Google.
“We had visited EDEMO a couple of years previously when first looking at eBikes. At that time we thought that the Riese & Müller cycles were rather pricey.” says Paul, “Having purchased lower priced (but still none the less expensive) eBikes we can now very much appreciate why Riese & Müller are that little bit more expensive. The build quality is excellent, the bikes are solid and inspire confident riding. The bike is now not just something for an occasional ride, it has now become an alternative method of transport around the local area.”
A bike that’s made for you
And with the option to tailor your bike to any one of 12,000 configurations, you can be sure to get the bike which is right for you. Feel free to check out our EDEMO Riese & Müller UK Buyer’s guide.
No other manufacturer is able to offer that many configurations. And if that isn’t enough, in 2019 Riese & Müller opened a purpose built state of the art factory in Germany. Here they build 450 bikes every day and aim to build your bike in 3-4 weeks. You could easily waste this time scouring the market for the elusive lower priced competitor, that doesn’t exist.
I have spent a lot of time in the past researching the very best quality e-bikes available. I have not yet found anything better than a Riese & Muller.
