Our Take

All Riese & Muller bikes are assembled in their factory in Weisenstadt Germany. This means you can customize virtually everything about the bike, including color, drivetrain, motor and battery capacity. Additionally Riese & Muller cargo bikes have many cargo bike accessories for the Packster.


Hello Weekend Adventures

Riese & Muller are known for incorporating full suspension into virtually any style of bike. The Delite is perhaps equal parts off-road e-bike, super commuter, and long-distance touring machine. The result is something that elicits daydreams, and weekend adventure schemes.

Fully Suspended Fun

Front and rear travel is 100mm, and the Delite Mountain offers a rear Fox Float 34 shock to soak up the bumps. Suspension increases control (especially at speed), preserves comfort, and has the added benefit of extending the lifespan of many components by reducing vibration related wear and tear.

Multiple Drivetrain Options

We love the three drivetrain options available on the Delite models - including Shimano derailleur, Nuvinci IGH, and even a Rolhoff hub option. The Rolhoff 14-speed internally geared hub requires minimal service and incredible feel and performance.

A Gates Carbon belt drive can be found on all Nuvinci models. Combined with a perfectly positioned pulley, the belt length and tension always remain constant while subjected to riding-related forces, making a belt tensioner a thing of the past.

Pair these drivetrain options with either a Bosch Performance Speed Motor or the High Torque Bosch CX Drive Motor.




A Rich History

The Delite was originally released in late-1990s as a full-suspension (though not electric) bike. Under constant production and regular revision, today's Delite is the product of nearly 20 years of German design and development.

New Dual Battery Technology

New for 2017, Riese & Müller is doubling the range of its E-Bikes with Bosch Dual Battery technology. This steps up battery capacity to 1,000 Wh, available on all Delite models. Depending on your needs, you may choose to bring along just one battery, or double up for a realistic range of 150 miles per charge. Using a charger, both batteries can be charged simultaneously.

Additional Model Options

There are numerous models within the Delite family, all of which can be ordered through The New Wheel. The Homage, a step-through version of the Delite, offers all the benefits of the Delite without the high top tube. The GT models of Delite upgrade components like rims, tires, and brakes for enhanced performance and serviceability.

All in All...

It's hard not to love this bike, in all of its incarnations and options. If you're looking for a commuter bike, and endless reasons to daydream about the weekends, this bike is sure to delight...
