From mid-April, our urban bikes will be available not only as 8-speed version, but also as 11-speed version. As always, we use only the highest quality Shimano Alfine group for the 8 and 11 speed hub gears. Combined with the belt drive (Gates Carbon Drive), the drive is unbeatable – maintenance-free*, quiet and absolutely reliable.
In addition, the 11-speed hub offers a wider gear ratio range (409% to 306% Alfine 8 gear) and allows several gears to be shifted at once.
*Oil change for the 11-speed hub recommended once after the first 1500km.
