Features

The Detour IE is one of the most affordable mid drive e-bikes featuring the excellent Steps system. Shimano has delivered the most compact, lightest weight e-bike drive systems on the market - it relies on a combination of torque and cadence sensing, and it's quiet! It comes already kitted out with many commuter friendly features - we can wire in integrated front and rear lights to complete the package for you.

Shimano's new street motor system is almost 1/2 a pound lighter than the 6000 series, and 20% more efficient - so you can expect up to a 50 mile range from the 418 watt hour battery. They have narrowed the width of the motor (q factor) for better cornering clearance, and made it even quieter than the original. Delivers an output torque of 60Nm for solid climbing and quick acceleration, with an advanced sensor for smooth starts and stops that is easier on the drivetrain. The display have been updated so you can connect via bluetooth and the e-tube app, in fact you can replace the display with your phone if you prefer that.

The Schwalbe Big Apple gives you comfortable cycling without using heavy and complicated technology! Air cushion tires are used as natural suspension. Inflated to around 25-30 psi, rolls really easily with a full suspension effect. A normal narrow tire must be inflated to a rock-hard 60+ psi, in order to roll similarly well.
