Raleigh ARRAY LOW STEP NAVY HUB
The Raleigh Array takes a beautifully styled Aluminium frame and combines it with the excellent E-Motion system that will assist you with inclines providing a smooth and controlled push. The E-motion system is the best riding front motor we have ever experienced at this price point making it a perfect choice for your first e-bike. Custom software provides an even delivery of power meaning that the bike pulls away smoothly and without the jerky surge of rival systems. There are five different modes that are easily selected with a push of a button on the handlebar to offer you various levels of assistance, this also includes a 'walk' mode that gives slight assistance when you are walking alongside the bike.
The front wheel motor is coupled with 7 speed Shimano Nexus hub gears changed with the easy to use twist shift dial and provide a wide range of gears to choose from. Hub gears are perfect if you want to minimise the maintenance requirements of your new bike as all of the component parts are safely sealed away in the hub, protecting them from ingress of dirt, water and grease. Plus, a clever integrated rear wheel lock has been added to the bike on the seat stays which can be quickly applied while you pop into the shops.
The 300wh battery will take you between 22 and 108km* on a single charge depending on the level of assistance selected and can be easily removed so you can take it into the house to charge it for your next ride. This Array comes fully equipped with a kickstand, steel mudguards, front and rear lights and an rear pannier rack so you can ride all year round, day or night with your fully loaded pannier bags if you wish. The bike also rides on strong double wall wheel rims that are clad with Vittoria high volume tyres with puncture protection and a reflective strip to make your ride more comfortable and safer.
So who is the Array for? Well the answer is, everybody. The Array comes in two low step colour options and a crossbar versions in a choice of traditional derailleur or hub gear systems and is one of the most inclusive bikes on the market. It can be used to commute to work, getting out and about on the weekend with family or just for leisurely rides around town. All of this with an extra bit of assistance along the way - so what are you waiting for?
