The German manufacturer Riese & Müller has reinforced its offer of electric bicycles with two expensive models under the name of UBN Five and UBN Seven. The duo will be available from summer 2022.
Darmstadt, Germany-based company Riese & Müller recently lifted the veil on two new premium e-bikes: the UBN Five and UBN Seven. The first is distinguished by a very classic diamond type frame, while the second opts for a more open frame which facilitates your ascent and descent.
The duo then shares the same technical sheet. Only the colors offered differ: Selva and Black Matt for the first named, Rose and Pure White for the second. All at a price of 4949 euros in their Touring version, against 5249 euros for the Silent version which stands out with an 8-speed Shimano Alfine transmission – against 11 speeds on the Touring.
Otherwise, the duo is equipped with the Fazua Ride 60 engine with an honorable torque of 60 Nm, which should allow you to climb the hills in peace. A total of three assistance modes are offered depending on the pace at which you want to ride. Weighing 2.3 kg, the removable battery has a capacity of 430 Wh, but no autonomy is announced.
With 18 kg on the scale, the UBN Five and UBN Seven are in the middle range of electric bikes. They are also equipped with Tektro disc brakes, Schwalbe Marathon Supreme tires, standard mudguards, a luggage rack and a lock. Up front, a Supernova Mini 2 headlight should illuminate your field of vision nicely.
Available from this summer
On the frame, a small module made up of LEDs indicates the levels of assistance and load according to a color code. As well, “the SP Connect interface allows you to install a smartphone on the stem and recharge it via USB-C“, explains the press release. Everything can be linked to an application that offers a location function.
The UBN Five and UBN Seven can be configured on the brand’s official website and will be available from summer 2022, according to the company.
