The Delite 25.
Special edition for 25 years of Riese & Müller.
To mark the 25-year anniversary, Markus Riese and Heiko Müller have fulfilled their E-Bike dream: the Delite 25. Based on the high-end Delite model with Control Technology, the two founders of the Weiterstadt-based manufacturers of premium E-Bikes have equipped the Delite 25 exactly as they both imagined their bike to be. Control and DualBattery Technology combined with Syntace and Fox Factory elements with Kashima-coating, Shimano XTR Di2 gear and high-quality disc brakes make the Delite 25 a real highlight.
In 1993, Markus Riese and Heiko Müller founded the company in their parent's garage based on the Birdy folding bicycle. Twenty-five years later, Riese & Müller is one of Europe's leading manufacturers of E-Bikes. The two founders have marked the anniversary by equipping the high-end Delite model as they ride it themselves. "The Delite is and remains our flagship and dear to our hearts. In the Delite 25, we have attached special importance to the best components that we can find on the market. But of course, we've also - as is the way with Riese & Müller - only selected that which is ideal for the application. This has resulted in a top-class E-Bike in terms of Riese & Müller expertise and riding behaviour. It will appeal to those who enjoy technology, aesthetics and maximum dynamics," says Heiko Müller, founder and CEO of Riese & Müller.
Twenty years after the first Delite and following a complete relaunch, most recently in 2017, 2018 sees the launch of the Delite 25. It is equipped with one of the Riese & Müller core technologies; Control Technology. The active rear swing arm, optimised front wheel suspension and the carrier which travels with the rear suspension make up the core of the Riese & Müller Control Technology. The improved traction that this provides gives increased sportiness and riding safety even at high speeds and thus characterises the powerful and dynamic riding behaviour of a Riese & Müller E-Bike. The Control Technology components of the Delite 25 are built in by Fox Factory. The Kashima-coated, high-performance anodised lower legs are virtually frictionless, particularly sensitive, abrasion-resistant and have an excellent response thanks to a very low breakaway torque.
The Delite 25 is fitted with Riese & Müller DualBattery Technology as standard. This use of two batteries doubles the battery capacity to 1,000 Wh. A further highlight is the use of Syntace components in the stem, handlebar and seatpost. The sturdy carbon handlebar offers increased safety thanks to new types of fibre, a new arrangement of fibre layers and extra-reinforced, high-strain points that are particularly good at absorbing knocks and vibrations. The Syntace Force stem also impresses with its extremely high level of stability. The combination of a high-strength, forgeable aluminium alloy and genuine 3D forging make it extremely stable and rigid. The seatpost of light, high-strength aluminium is optimally positioned on the saddle and easily adjustable.
To change gears with the highest precision, the Delite 25 is equipped with the innovative electronic Shimano XTR Di2 gear. This gear takes its power directly from the battery.
Every Delite 25 is numbered and is delivered with a certificate hand-signed by Markus Riese and Heiko Müller. The Delite 25 is available from September 2017 in black for 8,999.00 £ at specialist dealers.
