The Brand new Ridgeback Electron Plus is the first bike from a UK company to use the new Shimano Steps System. The Steps System is pedal assisted so it will kick in wen it senses that you need the help or your going a certain speed. There are 4 settings for the electric motor: Off, Low, Medium, High. if you turn the motor off then it becomes a regular bike, if you have it on low then it provides a small input when you need it, medium is a more sustained and constant input, and the high setting will keep going up to 15.5mph. If you ride faster in 15.5 mph then the motor will cut out because of regulations. 

The range of the bike depends on what mode it is in. In Low it will do 125km, Medium 85km and 60km in High.

To charge the Ridgeback Electron +simply remove the battery from its cradle and charge it inside. The charging time from Flat to full is 4 hours, and to get it to 80% its just 2 hours. 

The Electron + comes with Hydraulic disc brakes for control, and it also comes with an 8 speed drivetrain, so you'll be able to cope with any terrain. 

The bike also comes with a walking feature. Which means if you come to a hill and you can't ride up it, you can have the bike walk itself with the motor, so you can lean on your Ridgeback Electron + as you stroll - a personal funicular!

Electric Bike

Great bike easy to ride and very responsive on steep hills even in eco. still feel you get a reasonable work out too and does help take the strain off those rides home post a long day at work. In addition Ridgeback always makes a quality build.
