This electric bike is nearly new or second hand. We're selling it at a reduced price as part of our new sustainability initiative Second Life. You can find out more about our Second Life project here.

This hybrid e-bike has been designed by the Riverside team using the same successful lifetime warranty alloy frame as the rest of the range. Perfectly poised and extremely comfortable, this reliable electric bike has a brushless 250-watt motor in the rear wheel hub which delivers 42Nm torque. The down-tube positioned Lithium-ion 36V 11.6 Ah (418 WH) battery adds balance whilst the hydraulic disc brakes and lockout front forks allows you to easily control the bike when out for a ride.
  • Sold as part of our Second Life initiative, so better for the environment (and for your pocket)
  • Approximate weight is 22kg
  • Frame accepts full mudguards and rear pannier racks
