New for 2016 the Raleigh Captus Crossbar eBike is now sold out. We have decided to stick with the more popular Raleigh Motus, as it's not much different in price but has the hydraulic brakes, 10 speed gearing and the bigger 400Wh battery it's a bit of a 'no brainer'.
If this is the specific model you want, please let us know and we may be able to special order it for you taking advantage of our normal exemplary level of service.
Please use option box above to select frame variant, this model available in Crossbar (left) and Step Through (right):
Offered in both Low Step and Cross Bar variants the Raleigh Captus eBike is the younger brother to the Motus to complement the Raleigh electric bike range for 2016. This bike is ideal for those looking for a Commuting / Trekking / Hybrid eBike. Raleigh UK has joined forces with the renowned Bosch eBike system to create the ultimate high quality electric bike at a price that has to be taken seriously here in the UK for 2016. Available from the South’s Premier Raleigh eBike dealer.
I would highly recommend e-bikeshop, particularly for the Raleigh you can buy with confidence. In summary, I couldn't be happier!
The Raleigh Captus is a new model for 2016. Its finished with good components and uses the latest Bosch Active electric bike system.
The Captus comes equipped with everything useful to the everyday cyclist including: Full length mudguards, side stand, chain guard & rear wheel lock.
Raleigh have opted for the Shimano 9 speed gear system on the Captus, utilizing a 9 speed trigger shifter on the bars for easy gear changing and a Shimano Altus rear derailleur to ensure smooth shifting under pressure when assisted. The brakes are lightweight alloy cable operated V brakes.
This bike is designed to be comfortable for the rider, new features ensure the correct position is attained comfortably on the bike, these features include a comfort Selle Bassano gel saddle, comfort handlebar grips with new ergonomic design to support your hands and take pressure off the upper arm.
The Raleigh Captus also has an adjustable stem so the rider can adjust the position of the front end to make sure its perfect for the ride ahead.
Also to complement the comfort is the Suntour front suspension forks with an in built lockout so the rider can conserve energy when climbing or on less bumpy roads.
When unlocked these forks can absorb the road or bumpy surfaces taking the shocks away from the rider up front.
The Captus uses a strong alloy double wall rim laced with 36 spokes onto lightweight alloy hubs.
They are wrapped with Schwalbe puncture resistant tyres, which are designed specifically with eBikes in mind. They are fast rolling but also cater for the odd bridleway and cycle path as well as tarmac.
Looking for an affordable European Bosch eBike? The Raleigh Captus ticks all the boxes for the everyday cyclist. Looking to go further? Check out its older brother, the Raleigh Motus, with larger 400Wh battery pack, hydraulic brakes, suspension seatpost and 10 speed gear system.
The new Raleigh Captus 2016 eBikes also feature the latest Bosch Active crank drive motor, so you can be sure it's fitted with the latest kit and setup for optimum performance.
This system outputs 48Nm of torque & peaks at 500w! It certainly packs a punch, it also offers up to 225% assistance on turbo mode, while Eco mode offers a more subtle 50% assistance. There are 4 levels of assistance and remember you can always turn it off completely and ride it as a normal bike! This machine rolls just the same as a normal cycle.
In fact the quality in the design, geometry & build make it a true performer! The Raleigh Captus eBike features the Bosch 300Wh PowerPack Battery neatly mounted on the frame.
