Stylish, sleek and built for the city; these are a few of the demands that were put to our product designers when they started designing the Strada Electric and that is exactly what they delivered.
The Strada Electric is a new take on electric bikes in the UK market, it takes urban commuter bike credentials and opens them up to anyone looking to get on a bike. The stylish Aluminium frame, lightweight carbon fork and centre mount motor make the bike agile and balanced so you can navigate through traffic nimbly and with confidence.
The Strada is equipped with the fantastic Shimano Steps motor system, which is quicker off the mark that some of the other systems in our range so it's great for pulling away from the lights at speed or conquering hills quickly. The key to the Shimano STEPS system is the integration of the gears, motor and controller to produce a quiet, powerful and efficient riding experience and the new large Shimano computer provides you with the information you need to enjoy your ride.
For the Strada Electric we have combined the STEPS motor with Shimano's Alfine Di2 electronic hub gear, allowing you to shift gear using buttons rather than levers for a fast, smooth and precise change. This system also gives you the choice to set the bike to automatically shift gear based on the speed you're travelling and how fast you are pedalling to make sure you are always in the right gear. Torque, speed and cadence are monitored to automatically and smoothly shift to the right gear. The 400wh battery boasts a range of between 40 and 125km* dependent on the level of assistance selected.
Similar to its non-electric counterpart, the Strada Electric has been designed to be flexible to the needs of the rider and is therefore equipped with rack and mudguard mounts to allow you to customise the bike. A Selle Royal comfort gel saddle has been fitted to ensure a comfortable ride and Shimano hydraulic disk brakes provide smooth stopping power. What's more the bike boasts durable Schwalbe Energiser + tyres with a durable trekking tread which are specifically designed to suit e-bikes.
Like all our E-bikes the Strada is not just an e-bike, it is also a real option as sustainable method transport that anyone can use.
