Raleigh to launch Modum urban e-bike with rotatable handlebars
The e-bike’s handlebars can rotate 180 degrees for easy storage, and delivers a 100-mile range
Raleigh is set to launch a new compact urban e-bike called the Modum, designed to provide plenty of carrying capacity and be easily stored away after use.
For practicality, the bike supports a range of MIK-compatible accessories which can attach on to its frame, such as a child seat and a dog basket, while its handlebars can rotate 180 degrees to help make it easier to store in tight spaces.
The compactness of the Modum is not limited to its rotable handlebars, as the bike also features a small frame and rides on 20-inch wheels.
Talking of the frame, the bike can be finished in a choice of colours: light blue or forest green.
It weighs 25.6kg and is equipped with an MIK rear rack, mudguards, and integrated front and rear lights, all of which come as standard.
Performance comes from a BES3 mid-drive motor from Bosch, which is paired to an integrated 500Wh battery. Raleigh claims riders can expect a range of 100 miles on a full charge, which takes around five hours.
The Modum will also come fitted with a ShimanoNexus 5 gear hub and Shimano disc brakes.
It will be priced at £3,399 and will be available in stores and online from June.
