But that it can also be beautiful and elegant is often forgotten.
Ernest & Emma are high-quality electric bicycles with the typical Achielle appearance.
Do you want to go to the store quickly, do a terrace on Sunday or if the traffic jams are too fast on the way to work? With this e-bike it is all possible. And you do not have to make a very heavy effort, you do not get sweaty at destination and you do not have to worry about a parking space.
Through the ingenious system of Shimano the support is done in a natural way and the operation is simple and intuitive. Cycling has never been so pleasant and easy.
In the design and construction of our electrical range we have searched for the best. That's why we left from the Shimano Steps Middle engine.
We did not opt for the simple route, but decided to design, test and build the frame completely ourselves. This allowed us to build it completely to our own wishes.
We opted for maintenance-friendly and solid components for the superstructure. In addition to the Steps system, switching is done electronically and automatically via Di2 (always the right gear). The 8 gears are also from Shimano and come from the Alfine series. These Alfine gears are specially designed for heavy loads and user-friendly use.
Driving smoothly is important, but stopping well is certainly equally important. That is why our Steps e-bikes are always equipped with hydraulic disc brakes. These provide a constant and firm braking force.
You can choose the rest of the structure almost entirely yourself. There are several frames possible, more than 10 colors, you choose the mudguards, the carrier, chain guard, tires, ... and for the battery you can choose a matching leather cover. You can also determine the lighting yourself. There is the e-bike lighting from AXA or you opt for supernova lighting from Supernova (incredible light output).
The combination of the handlebars and saddle makes it possible to achieve a sporty sitting position as well as a more straight, comfortable sitting posture.
By default, all our Steps ebikes are equipped with an extra wide, double stand that narrows down for your comfort during folding.
For our line of electric bikes, we were looking for a high-quality system and that's why we soon came up with the Steps system from Shimano.
Shimano Steps is a complete system that is mounted on the frame (mid-engine).
By integrating the drive unit in the vicinity of the bottom bracket, the weight comes to lie low in the frame. That makes the e-bike more manageable.
The most important electronics are built into the drive unit, which ensures a reliable and weather-resistant system.
Shimano steps is a lightweight system with a powerful lithium-ion battery and an intelligent battery management system.
The Steps system is combined with the internal Di2 hub gear, an electronic circuit that is perfectly integrated into the drive unit. You do not switch by moving a rotor or lever, but this is done electronically by pressing a button.
The system also switches fully automatically, depending on your speed and the applied force selects the right gear.
By briefly reducing the power during shifting, the transition from one gear to another is astonishingly smooth.
Only Shimano has that knowledge of the electric drive unit plus the acceleration components. Only Shimano can realize this integration. And that makes a big difference for the rider.
