The perfect gear for every pace.

E-Bikes from Riese & Müller offer the perfect gear for every project and every situation.

Derailleur gear

A well-maintained derailleur gear has the best degree of efficiency of all the possible gear types. This is important for sporty riders who want to eke every last metre of range from their E-Bikes. Our touring, sport, GT, mountain and super mountain E-Bike models are equipped with a Shimano 9, 10 or 11-speed derailleur gear.

Hub gear

Hub gears are hugely popular thanks to their low maintenance requirements and easy, highly comfortable operation.

All nuvinci models from Riese & Müller are equipped with the continuous NuVinci N380 hub gear, allowing you to always travel in the perfect gear without any gaps between shifts. Instead of lots of complex cogs and components, hub gears use rotating and incline-adjustable balls that are positioned between two discs. It can be easily switched while stationary under full load, e.g. at a red light. Being completely self-contained, the hub gear is also totally maintenance-free. The NuVinci gear hub can be very smoothly shifted over an unending range of gears within a translation range of 380%. Its simple operation with the rotating handle on the handlebars means that the perfect gear can be selected intuitively. Thanks to the lack of gear jumps, the riding comfort is markedly increased compared to conventional gear changes.

The automatic models are equipped with the automatic NuVinci H-Sync N380 hub gear. Integration into the E-Bike drive’s control unit means continuous, automatic shifting, superb riding comfort and the most straightforward E-Bike handling on the market. The required pedal frequency is set via the Bosch E-Bike display and external control unit.

Our city E-Bike models are equipped with the Shimano Nexus 8-speed hub gear with coasting. The city back-pedal models have the same gear, but with back-pedal brake.

Riders who are often on tour and cycling through hills need a broad range of gears, as offered by the Rohloff 14-speed hub gear. With over 520% performance, it allows you to conquer even the steepest slopes without tiring.

Combined derailleur / hub gear

E-Bikers who are at home in the hills need lots of gears. The ideal solution comes in the form of the SRAM 27-speed Dualdrive, a combined derailleur / hub gear with a high degree of efficiency and shifting comfort. Its huge ratio range makes even the highest hills a tiny problem.
