Riese & Müller

Riese & Müller Superdelite GT Rohloff HS

What it's built for:

The Superdelite from Reise & Müller was built to redefine both mountain bikes and commuters. It is a full-suspension that can easily do double duty cruising the pavement and heading off to explore backwoods trails. Front and rear suspension keep it riding incredibly smoothly while dual batteries feeding a Bosch Performance Line motor mean you have unparalleled range and power. This Rohloff version uses the brand’s world-renowned internal-hub gearing system known for generations for their incredibly long service life. Paired with an ultra-low maintenance belt replacing a conventional chain, this is one of the world’s most durable bicycles. The HS version upgrades to Bosch’s Performance Line Speed motor which increases maximum assisted speed to a zippy 45kph.

Why we love it:

Before electric bikes, the Superdelite couldn’t have existed, full-suspension bikes were nice to ride but they weren’t practical for city commuting. No longer. Have your cake and eat it too with this unbelievable all-rounder. Clever engineering allowed R&M to even add fenders and a suspended cargo rack meaning there are truly no compromises on this one-of-a-kind bicycle.

Though we’re a bike shop that sells, builds and fixes bicycles, they’re really just the means to an end; albeit a beautifully designed means to an idyllic end. Our job most importantly is to encourage as many people as we can to get out and ride for transport and enjoyment. We'd love to make riding a bike as commonplace as your morning cup of coffee, which by the way is our other obsession.

Bicycle Junction is situated at 1 Marion St, Te Aro, Wellington.
