Raleigh Captus crossbar & step-through

The Raleigh Captus brings all the advantages of the Bosch motor system to the  e-cyclist at one of the lowest prices for this type of motor.  This has been achieved by fitting a more standard level of bicycle equipment.

Captus shares a frame, Bosch motor and controls,front suspension forks and tyres with the Motus but is specified more as a standard bike with V brakes, Shimano Altus 9 speed derailleur and shifter and no lights.

The battery is Bosch 300 Wh (36 V X 8.2 Ah) On the crossbar version the battery is mounted on the down tube and on the rear rack for the step-through as per the photographs.

The Bosch Active Line motor has proved itself as a reliable system which starts work seamlessly as you move off. The Active Line drive system has brought a new era of riding experience to the e-biker, with precision engineering delivering measured support with every turn of the pedal.

The rider has a wide range of information available as can bee seen from the photo of the Intuvia display. The controls are operated from the left hand unit.  The rider has 4 power options and the is a walk start button which propels the bike to 4 mph without the pedals being turned.

The cycling experience is enhanced with 700cm wheels and Schwalbe “Energiser” puncture resistant tyres. the lock out front forks give the rider the option of having none of the energy transferred into forks when riding hard up a hill.  The rear wheel is fitted with a lock which shares the same key as the battery pack.

Axcess were the nearest specialist supplier of Ebikes, and there web page gave good descriptions. I visited their premises, tried out their folding models around the factory estate and on that basis chose a ELife folding bike as the one best suited to my needs. I have been pleased with the model I chose. - It is of robust construction with front fork suspension and it deals well with farm tracks and forest trails - it folds easily and fits in the back of the car - it shrinks distances compared with my old pedal bike - it has coped with all hills I have so far tried it on - I don't know what its range is (30 miles seems about right for gentle countryside). I had thought that battery capacity would be a limitation, but it is not. It is in fact saddle soreness.
I recently purchased the Axcess Electric Shetland folding bike which fits nicely In the back of my SUV without having to lower the rear seats. It’s an excellent bike and build .. easy to mount and dismount .. perfectly suitable for me as I am now in my mid fifties and appreciate a little assistance nowadays on longer journeys and Inclines , that said It’s a great bike for any adult whatever there age and as they say ... It has the power to get you there and back. I have previously owned two other electric cycles of another brand that were hard work to cycle when the power was off even on the flat. I’m pleased to say that this Is not an Issue with the Axcess Electric Bike that you can pedal with ease If and when the power Is not required ..
