In November 2018, we introduced our new e-bike range. Including three Bosch e-bikes with a Bosch mid-engine, together with the sleek Arthur (then still under the name Adam) with an integrated, almost invisible battery and rear hub motor. We have always approached the subject of e-bikes with a vision in mind and wanted to present a balanced product range that covers many wishes for an e-bike. Thus, the Bosch bikes are our all-rounders, which will take you furthest and payload options that combine many requirements for a city and touring e-bike.
Arthur now follows as the e-bike model, in which our design handwriting is clearly recognizable - the Schindelhauer e-bike, which many have expected of us. Arthur is ready for delivery in December in the colour graphite black.
Our eye for details is evident in many aspects: Not only is the battery integrated into the down tube, all cables disappear within the frame. This is how we managed to maintain the typical look of a classic Schindelhauer bike. Arthur has, like our classics, an aero-shaped seat tube with integrated saddle clamping.
Another highlight is the integrated lighting system:
A flat lens, which is StVZO compliant (road-legal in Germany) and provides enough light output, neither gets hot nor blinds oncoming traffic and fits inside a handlebar - this feat was achieved by the LightSKIN developers. Exactly the right solution for a sleek e-bike like Arthur, which comes without visible battery and cables along the frame. Together with LightSKIN we redesigned both their LED seatpost and the LED handlebar for the German market - and so Arthur is the first e-bike worldwide with a complete, StVZO-compliant LightSKIN lighting system. The power is supplied by the battery.
The slim design is made possible by the 250 Wh battery, the range is half of what our Bosch bikes offer. As a true city rider, one battery charge lasts between 50-80 kilometres, depending on terrain, rider weight and start-stop-frequency. But even with an empty battery the onward journey is no problem due to a natural driving experience. Mudguards and rear racks will be optionally available.
