Corratec Life Performance 8 500 Lowstep Electric Hybrid Bike - 2017

Can be purchased using Cycle to work

The Corratec Life Performance 8 500 Lowstep Electric Hybrid Bike is a unique concept that has been developed with German doctor Ludwig V. Geiger. It is designed to encourage people who would not normally ride to improve their lifestyle with exercise. 

The frame has been especially designed with a reinforced tubing design and components selected to allow riders of up to 150 kg to use the bike with ease so they can regain a level of fitness and enjoy a healthier lifestyle. 

It has 26” wheels that allow for an easy mount and dismount, and is fitted with Continental Race King tyres with puncture resistant band and reflective side walls. 

The Bosch Performance Line Centre drive motor system is paired with a rack mounted Bosch 500wh battery that has a massive range of up to 95 miles dependent on terrain/mode, and charges from flat in as little as 2 ½ hours. It has a Bosch Intuvia Active display that can be used to select the four different levels of assistance, and shows ride information such as speed and battery level. 

It is equipped with Shimano Alfine 8 speed internal hub gearing to assist the rider up to the 15.5mph assisted speed. It has powerful Magura MT5/MT4 hydraulic disc brakes, and has comfort bars, ergo grips and an adjustable stem to help create the perfect riding position. 

It is also fitted as standard with an integrated lighting system, mudguards, a pannier rack with 25kg load capacity and a kickstand to park it up.
