Emil VI/IX and Emilia VI/IX enter the next evolutionary stage of the functional, yet aesthetically sophisticated everyday bicycle.
Powered by the MAHLE ebikemotion X35+ system with the motor inconspicuously integrated in the rear hub and the battery placed in the down tube, the new e-bikes are based on the award-winning design of the Gustav and Greta models, which are known for their outstanding suitability for everyday use. As further equipment highlights, Emil and Emilia feature a Pinion gearbox – the top class among bicycle shifting systems - as well as, for the first time, the LightSKIN Ultra-Mini-Light U2E, the world's smallest German StVZO-compliant bicycle front light. Thanks to the Gates Carbon Drive CDX belt, rides are noiseless and maintenance-free, with three to four times the mileage than a chain. Oiling and greasing are a thing of the past, as are dirty trouser legs.
Award-winning design of Gustav and Greta
Emil and Emilia write the next chapter in the success story of the Gustav and Greta models. Honoured with the Eurobike Award in the category Urban Bikes, iF Product Design Award as well as the Red Dot Award with the predicate "Best of the Best", renowned design experts and decision makers from the bicycle industry appreciate the sophisticated concept of the functional, at the same time aesthetically pleasing everyday bike. Thanks to the relaxed seating position and frame geometry as well as the comfortable tyres, short distances in the city can be covered just as easily as extended tours. The sports bag or shopping bag can be transported safely with the frame-mounted front carrier and the included rubber VarioStraps.
Pinion - The premier class of bicycle shifting systems
For Emil and Emilia, the further developed frame concept is equipped with a C-Line gearbox from Pinion - a sequential high-end transmission, which is offered with a choice of 6 or 9 gears. The spread is 295% (6-speed), or 568% (9-speed). The sleek construction of the housing blends seamlessly into the frame design and is finished with a hard-wearing powder coating. Developed by former Porsche engineers, all gears can be shifted in succession or skipped in whatever order required. It does not matter in this case whether the bike is moving or not. Pinion gearboxes are characterised by their extremely high durability, but at the same time minimal maintenance requirements.
The world's smallest StVZO bicycle front light
Emil and Emilia are the first models in the product range to be equipped with the Ultra-Mini-Light U2E from LightSKIN, the world's smallest bicycle front light that exceeds the high requirements of the German StVZO. At the same time, the Ultra-Mini-Light U2E is a true lightweight at only 25 grams and, in combination with an aluminium housing, ensures optimal cooling abilities for the LEDs. Integrated on the Curana aluminium profile mudguard, the Ultra-Mini-Light U2E is designed for a particularly long lifespan.
Emil comes in mineral grey in sizes S (45), M (50) and L (55). For Emilia with a lower entry in beautiful sage green, there is an option between S (45) or M (50). Both models can be configured with either a 6- or 9-speed Pinion C-Line gearbox.
