The Strada Elite Electric revolutionises the urban commuter ebike featuring a new frame design with adapted geometry to improve agility including a shortened wheelbase and innovative 650B tyres.
The bike’s stylish Aluminium frame is available in a choice of colourways, including striking blue and cool silver and includes internally routed cables for that classy finish. Plus the lightweight carbon fork and centre mount motor have been carefully selected to provide agility and balance so you can navigate through traffic nimbly and with confidence.
The Strada is equipped with the top of the range Shimano Steps E6000 ebike system featuring a powerful 50NM centre mount motor. The motor boasts reduced drag which makes it 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. The 400wh battery boasts a range of between 40 and 125km* dependent on the level of assistance selected. Plus, the large Shimano computer display provides you with the information you need to enjoy your ride.
The 650B wheels with high volume tyres have been specially selected for this range to afford added comfort and grip by providing a larger contact area with the terrain that you’re riding on, and therefore more traction while riding, as well as increasing your speed. The 42mm wide tubeless ready tyres have a multi surface tread with a compact centre line designed for road use and a low profile textured tyre shoulder suitable for light off road riding on compact ground. The tyres also feature a reflective strip running around the rim of the tyre to help make sure you're seen and safe at night.
A simple 1 x 9 Shimano Alivio derailleur gearing system had been selected for this model; providing a large enough range for any terrain but minimising weight and focusing on speed.
Similar to its non-electric counterpart, the Strada Electric has been designed to be flexible to the needs of the rider and can be equipped with a rear pannier rack and mudguards allowing you to customise the bike. A Selle Royal gel saddle has been fitted to ensure a comfortable ride and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes provide smooth stopping power.
