Shimano StepsAs featured on: All Raleigh e-bikes
A smart integrated gear and motor system for a quieter, more powerful and efficient riding experience For Raleigh e-bikes with the STEPS motor, this has been combined with Shimano’s Alfine Di2 electronic hub gear. This allows you to change gear using buttons rather than levers for a fast, smooth and precise gear shift that doesn’t require readjustment
This system also gives you the choice to set the bike to automatic shift. This responsive option takes in to account the speed of the bicycle and how fast you are pedalling and then automatically tells the Di2 hub which gear to shift in to
Here the system will, if necessary, temporarily reduce chain tension to allow the hub to change to the right gear
This will in turn allow for a smoother riding experience for the rider, as you will not have to worry about whether you are in the right gear
E-motionAs featured on: Raleigh Array
Raleigh have partnered with Accell Netherlands, Europe’s largest manufacturer of e-bikes, to develop the e-motion front motor system for the array models
