  • Made for you in Germany:

    Riese & Müller assembles each bike in their factory in Weiterstadt, Germany to your exact specifications. This means that you can choose things like color, motor style, battery, drivetrain, and accessories. The New Wheel is here to help you to design the perfect bike. Learn more.
  • Suspension Isn't Only For The Pros:

     The Culture is designed around bike performance, ride comfort, and user control with full-suspension - the essence of Riese & Muller's Control Technology.
  • Add Some Diversity To Your Commute:

    With the deep step through of the Culture frame, you can wear whatever you want and still bike to work.  
  • An Equal Opportunity Ebike: 

    Whether on the road, the bike paths or even the trail, the Culture is a confident urban bike, and a capable adventurer, if you swing that way.  
  • Built With A Bosch Internal Battery: 

    Benefits of an internal battery include lower stepover height, excellent weight distribution and a super clean visual aesthetic.
  • Crisp External or Seamless Internal Shifting:

    Choose from two drivetrain options: either a 10-speed Shimano Deore drivetrain or a continuously variable Enviolo (formerly Nuvinci) system that can shift even when stopped.  Don't worry, we'll help you pick the right configuration for your riding style. 
  • The Highest Torque Motor Available:

    Culture comes with a Bosch CX Drive, the highest torque system Bosch makes which is perfect for even the steepest Bay Area inclines.
  • A Warranty You Can Trust

    : Riese & Müller's warranty is backed by The New Wheel True Warranty™  and upheld by our professional service department. Includes 5-year frame coverage, 2 years for electronics, and 2 years for all other components (some exceptions apply).

Our Take

All Riese & Müller bikes are assembled in their factory in Weiterstadt Germany. This means you can customize virtually everything about the bike, including color, drivetrain, motor and battery capacity.


Riese & Müller Steps Up The Step Through 

Step-through bikes are some of our most popular - so approachable and so easy to mount and dismount.

When combined with full-suspension you get a bike that is not just supremely comfortable, but safer and more maneuverable on and off-road.

Limited Upgrades Available

The Culture has a limited set of options - including frame size and choice of drivetrain.

Why so few options?  In part, this is because the Culture is well appointed to begin with.  Also, Riese & Muller's step through line has grown over the years.  You may find more options in a full-suspension step-through with the Riese & Muller Homage, or you may discover what you're looking for in the simplified Nevo step through, all available at The New Wheel.



Loaded With Extras

Great components, ergonomic grips, awesome saddle, superb tires, integrated rear Racktime compatible rack, a folding ABUS lock that's keyed alike to your ebike battery, as well as integrated front and rear lighting.

Who is the Culture for?

Those who choose the Culture appreciate premium comfort found in a step-through bike with an unrivaled sporty side. There is no other bike on the market that combines the comfort and control of full-suspension with the ease of use of a step-through.
