Features of the Rapido 2021 – City Commuter E-Bike
Recharge at any household outlet. 1-YR Warranty.
36v/13ah will last you 60-70km with a 4-5 hour charge time. The Samsung cell battery guarantees longevity backed by a 1-year warranty. Slides in-and-out for ease of charging. Lockable (with a key) to help keep it secure.
Light Alloy Frame
Less weight to extend your battery range
26-inch alloy frame (weighing just 19kg without battery!). Chose from blue, red or black. All come in the step-through design so you can hop on and off with ease.
Mudguards sit above each wheel helping prevent splashback and keeping you dry in the wet.
The frame is thoughtfully designed to include a mountable rear-wheel bracket you can tie down cargo on (or passengers?).
Hydraulic Disc Brakes (Front & Rear)
Better Stopping Power & Less Maintenance
Know you can stop suddenly if required with Tektro HD-E350 hydraulic disc breaks fitted to both the front and rear wheels. With more stopping power than mechanical brakes, less force is required to apply the lever and receive the same stopping power.
However, perhaps the most important advantage of hydraulic brakes comes with maintenance. We’ve designed this e-bike to be as low maintenance for you as possible. Ready to ride at all times. Hydraulic disc brakes will automatically self-adjust as they wear down, unlike mechanical ones that require constant, complicated and fiddly adjustment to keep you riding safer for longer. For a daily commuter e-bike, hydraulic brakes are a huge benefit over mechanical brakes.
Front Suspension Forks
To keep you riding in comfort for longer and over more diverse terrain El Rapido 2021 comes complete with SR SUNTOUR front forks.
Bafang Rear Hub Motor
Quick and smooth, with predictable, easy-to-control power
Rear hub motor design results in better traction and stronger frame mounting. It also helps you to maintain balance when steering at higher speeds.
Befang has been at the forefront of e-mobility design for almost 20 years. Backed by a 1-year warranty, you know this motor will last.
These motors are small, lightweight and discreet; located within the centre of the rear wheel.
Simply pedalling the bike will activate the motor, spurring you onwards.
Intergrated Lights (Front & Rear)
Ready to ride, day or night
Adjustable front and rear lights are integrated into the Rapido. Come nightfall you’re ready to ride safely at the flick of a switch. Plus additional reflectors for added visibility when lights are shining on you. No need to spend more on extras like after-market lighting (though we’re not against it if you want to keep really safe!).
Rear Lights & Reflectors:
Suspension Seat Post
Ride in comfort with a fully adjustable suspension seat post. This bike is one-size. Fully adjustable to suit your height and personal preference. Just select your colour and go.
A well-cushioned saddle to keep you riding longer, in comfort.
Half Grip Throttle
Reach speeds without pedalling
Half grip throttle to control your speed when using the motor.
Half grip throttles are like the little brother of full twist throttles. They operate the exact same way as a full twist throttle except that they don’t reach all the way to the end of the handlebar. They reach about half way.
Leather grips that feel good in the hand and look great too.
Adjustable Handle Positon
Adjust the angle of the handlebars to suit your height and riding preference.
SHIMANO 7 gear set. One of the leading gear set manufacturers.
850 LCD display
El Rapido 2021 now comes complete with easy-to-use LCD control screen. Visible day or night, this control panel gives you full control of all the bike’s settings at all times.
KENDA puncture free tyres
Keep mud and water off your legs. Also helps to protect your laces and clothing from being caught up in the chain.
