Remarkably easy, comfortable, super-styler, mega reliable and unashamedly unconventional – The Corratec LifeS is a fresh town eBike radically suitable for the new world of mainstream eBike mobility.
NZ models have 32km/hr top assisted speed
To make it even better, Corratec have built this bike solid: strong, very low maintenance and reassuringly sturdy to ride. High volume 3 inch wide tires provide enormous traction and effectively act as suspension, cushioning bumps and creating a more forgiving rider environment. Wide handlebars also help make the bike very stable, and did we mention their height is adjustable?
Another great aspect is reliability. We think you should be able to get an eBike which just goes, like a good car. The LifeS is good news if you’re worried about maintenance on your electric bike. Traditional gears and brakes require regular adjustment in order to keep them going well. The LifeS features an internally-geared hub, a less common gear system famous for requiring next to no maintenance, which also conveniently lets you change gears while stationary. Hydraulic disk brakes like these also self-adjust and require only very sporadic services or pad changes, and are more powerful than most brakes (though unlike the gear hub, these are a feature you will find on most electric bikes in this price range). You will still need to put some air in the tires from time to time, but high-volume tires like these tend to need inflation less regularly than ordinary tires, and thanks to their high quality, they won’t puncture easily.
The electrics, as well, are extremely well built. The BOSCH drive system is arguably the highest quality electric bike system available and has proven it’s exceptional reliability to us over the years. It has the same reassuring solid, quiet and powerful feeling that you’d expect from a German car and the same robust engineering you’d expect from any BOSCH product. This comes with the largest of the batteries available for that system, the 500 wh, which could deliver over 100 km range in perfect conditions and in the most challenging of conditions such as we have here in Wellington, will reliably deliver no less than 40 km.
