More than just a city bike, the Raleigh Strada Trail Sport Electric is designed for the streets and the trail; weekday worker, weekend warrior the Strada TS can handle it all! Unlike any other e-bike on the market, the TSE is sleek with fast, agile frame geometry yet robust enough to be ridden down the bumpiest canal paths or gravel roads thanks to its strong 73mm travel Suntour suspension fork and lightweight alloy frame.
Always keeping adaptability front of mind, the Strada TSE's suspension fork is designed with a lock-out capability which allows you to ride it like a rigid bike when you're on the road with a simple click of a lever. Plus mounts for mudguards and a rear pannier rack are included so that youre able to customise your bike to you needs.
The Strada TS Electric is fitted with a new TranzX M16 centre mount motor, which offers excellent climbing power coupled with a smooth and progressive assistance to give you a helping hand along the road or towpaths. The 400wh battery will provide a range of 50 - 80km* on a single charge dependent on the level of assistance selected. Motor systems from TransX benefit from new communications technology, which ensures that the motor maximises the battery range, and will allow your dealer to set the bike up for you via a USB link. Handle-mounted power controls are placed close to the grips, so you can easily select from the three power levels, and use the speed button to give you an extra boost for hills or when you're late for work!
We selected the TranzX M16 motor for the Raleigh Strada Trail Sport Electric, as it's ideally suited to the type of riding this bike is designed for. In this instance the motor is directly connected to the cranks providing a smooth and exceptionally efficient transfer of power which is added to your pedal stroke. The M16 system features an LCD display that shows your speed, range and the power level you are using.
The motor is matched with a high quality Shimano Deore 9 speed gear set with rapid fire shifters designed to make changing between gears fast and smooth. Tektro hydraulic disc brakes provide the stopping power and these ones have harnessed their craft on the rough mountain bike circuit, so you can be confident that they can take a bit of punishment!
The Strada Trail Sport Electric is ideal for anyone that is looking to travel across different terrains on their commute to work or weekend ride. Fitted with wider 40mm WTB cyclocross tyres which roll fast on the road but have enough grip for the trails and feature a reflective strip around the tyre so that you'll be safe and seen even if you're riding at night.
