Review: Riese & Muller Nevo Bosch Electric Bike


Hi, I’m Karen at The New Wheel, and I’m
here today with Riese & Müller’s Nevo. This is one serious step-through bike.
Riese & Müller has a deep history in engineering, and they’ve reimagined this
category to create the flagship step-through bike in their lineup. Today in
this video, I’m going to talk about some of the features of the design that we
really like, why that matters for the rider’s experience, and who might really
enjoy making this bike a part of their life. With the singular design of this
frame, Riese & Müller has incorporated a number of features that make the bike a
real pleasure to ride. The back end triangle is the same as
you’ll see on their cargo bikes, and what that does is gives the bike
ultimate stability. So you’ve got this really unusual rear triangle, which allows
either a regular derailleur or a Gates Carbon Belt Drive to be installed without
any breaks in the frame. By positioning the battery over the front
of the frame, it really adds more weight to the front wheel so that when you’re
going uphill, the bike handles incredibly well. They’ve used the Bosch CX drive
motor, which is a super-high torque motor usually used for mountain bikes, but in
the urban context, it just means you can go anywhere. You’re gonna find that in low
power settings, you’re going to work as hard as you like, as much as you want to
work on a regular bike. And in the highest power setting in turbo,
you can make it up the steepest hill with a heavy load of groceries with no problem
at all. Riese & Müller is known for their comfort designs, and they’ve incorporated
front suspension and seat post suspension to try to keep the rider comfortable even
on pothole-y streets. You’ve got Ergon grips and a Selle Royal
saddle that make all the touch points really a pleasure to interact with. The
bike comes with tires that are comfortable and sturdy. They’re Big Ben Plus, which
is a balloon tire that you can run nice and low pressure to keep it very comfortable, and
they’re also going to be super puncture- proof. The bike comes standard with
fenders, a great front light by Supernova, a rear light, of course, which keeps you
visible from the back, and a rack that’s really designed to carry
lots of stuff. When you put a bunch of stuff on the back, why not have a
step-through bike? This is the perfect bike for men or women. It’s got a really
singular look that I think can absolutely be dressed up, and it will take you
anywhere you need to go. The Nevo, like all Riese & Müller bikes, are made
especially for you in Germany. And this means that there are key things
that you get to choose for how your bike is going to be. That includes color and
key elements of the drive system. For more information on how we’ll work
with you to design and order the best bicycle for your needs, check out our
video on Riese & Müller made for you in Germany. This is just bold, industrial
design. It’s a smart and forward-thinking city bike, where you can get on, go
anywhere, make it on time to any destination, cut around that traffic, and
just have an elevated way of living. So if you’re looking for a stable,
comfortable, urban bike, this is a bike that you absolutely have to try. The New
Wheel is located in San Francisco and in Marin County, and we have demo bikes here
for you try. I highly recommend coming in to give this bike a test ride. We love it.
We want to show you how exciting it can be and how it might open up possibilities
that you never imagined in your own life. ♪ [music] ♪
