The new Raleigh Centros Low Step 2018 electric bikes are available to order now for first delivery mid August 2018. Pre-order now from the UK's premier Raleigh eBike dealer we'll be in touch on arrival to arrange a collection or delivery day with you.
The Raleigh Centros is the top spec Raleigh eBike model offered with a built in 500Wh 'InTube' Bosch eBike battery for hidden power and extended range. Popular with riders looking to cover some miles at the weekend or commute in the week. Offered with all the essentials in a brand new frame design at a great price point.
Absolutely love the bike and have already cycled miles. Its amazing! I'm extremely grateful for your advice. I feel the bike is a perfect choice for me and my requirements. You clearly know your subject and I've already sung your praises to all who will listen!!.
Raleigh have teamed up with the German manufacturers Bosch to create a well specified Europe built crank drive bike.
The Shimano hydraulic disc brakes ensure the Raleigh Centros electric bike comes to a stop where needed, with good braking performance and minimal maintenance.
Whilst we are on maintenance, aside from keeping it clean and oiling the chain from time to time, there is not actually that much else too it!
The Raleigh Centros Low Step comes fully equipped with all the practical functions you would expect. Raleigh have opted to offer an eBike that you needn't add any extras.... Just jump on and pedal.
The Centros is offered in two specs (Low Step Only) - hub gear or derailleur. Hub gears are best for long flatter terrain, they offer a range of gears with minimal fuss. Both up and downhill you'll have enough gears for everyday riding. The hub version is £100 more.
Hub gears benefit from a user friendly system, the controls are easy to navigate (just up and down) and they also benefit from being very low maintenance.
Because the chain does not move, it doesn't wear the same and there is little wear on the sprockets. Thus, not needing for frequent changes of the chain and/or sprockets.
The Raleigh Centros model features a wider range 8 speed gear system, provided by Shimano, the 8 Speed Internal Nexus gear hub offers silky smooth shifting while maintaining a completely straight chain line.
It works in harmony with the Bosch eBike drive system and offers a reliable maintenance free solution. The 8 speed setup offers a wider range bottom to top for all hills and descents.
Alternatively you can opt for the Shimano Acera 9 speed drive train on a derailleur gear setup, offering a wide range of gears.
The wheels feature decent hubs & Raleigh have used alloy double wall rims for superior strength and minimal weight.
The wheels on this model are 'quick release' front & rear. This means you can remove the wheels in seconds if required.
To glide you over some of the bumpier roads / terrain are Suntour's front suspension fork with 63mm of travel to take the zing out of the front end.
The semi wrap bars are natural to hold and combined with the adjustable stem and comfort grips allow the rider to get in the perfect position.
The 2018 Raleigh Centros is the bigger brother to the Motus Grand Tour so it has many of the same features including a complete mudguard set, comfort saddle, ergonomic grips, adjustable stem, prop stand, pannier rack and puncture resistant tyres.
It also has built in lights which are powered off the eBike system itself. No bulbs or batteries to contend with, the lights are always ready for you. On the Raleigh Centros Low Step the rear light is neatly built into the RackTime pannier rack, offering full visibility from behind and at the sides.
Where the Raleigh Centros differs is in it's frame design. It has neatly tucked the Bosch 'InTube' 500Wh battery into the down tube. Not only does this look great but it also offers 25% more miles than the 400Wh battery pack.
The new Raleigh Centros features the latest Bosch Active Line Plus eBike system. Offering a larger sprocket upfront with no internal gearing, this motor is much quieter and features little resistance when pedalling outside of the assistance.
The system is designed to be smooth and is around 30% more compact than the previous Active line. Offering support up to 270% and peak torque levels of 50Nm this system offers smooth and punchier power delivery both around town and on longer rides alike.
The Bosch Intuvia display shows rider credentials at a glance whilst keeping the cockpit clean. It offers quick access to parameters and assistance modes. Also offering the 'Walk Assist' function and the ability to remove it from the bike when parked to immobilise the electrical system in case of theft.
The Raleigh Centros has the hidden 'InTube' battery within the frame and offers extended range with the Bosch 500Wh battery. Support is delivered in 4 different assistance modes up to 15mph.
