Handmade in Belgium. The best of both worlds, Ophelie combines a comfortable, upright sitting position with modern equipment. Carbon belt, hydraulic brakes, internal hub gears. Exclusively at Rothar.
- Genuine Dutch bike, hand-built in Belgium
- Step-thru riding position gives you power where you need it while maintaining the comfort of a city bike with easy mounting and dismounting
- Gates carbon belt drive, invented for use on motorcycles, is lube-free to keep pants clean and lasts up to 30,000km before needing replacement
- Full Dynamo lighting system - maintenance-free and anti-theft - that includes a 70 LUX front light and svelte Curana fender-integrated rear light
- Shimano Alfine 8-speed internal hub for steep hills and long flat straightaways
- Hydraulic disc brakes give you absolute stopping power, no matter the weather
- Brooks Cambium C17 saddle and grips for renowned Brooks comfort without the maintenance or break-in time of their traditional leather saddles
The Ophelie is a combination of classic looks and top notch specs. Needs zero maintenance except for tyre pumping. Puncture protection tyres, the carbon belt and hydraulic brakes makes you forget flats, greasy trousers and hesitant braking.
