As "Dutch" as British gets..

Raleigh's new 2023 Lowstep uses the Bosch Active Line motor, a 400Wh battery and large and easy to read and operate Purion display.

With a relaxed, very comfortable and posture pleasing upright seating position and style, the Motus Lowstep models offer a confidence building riding style for new ebike riders with its predictable but direct handling at their lowest possible price point.

If its not broken...

The Raleigh Motus Lowstep is a "rollover" model for Raleigh.

While the rest of the Motus model range saw a huge overahaul for 2023, this came with a bump in price to cover the research, development and material costs which rose significantly during the 2021 and 2022 model years.

Keen to remain a competitive brand, Raleigh chose to continue production of their last generation frame set for those who prefer better value than keeping up with current frame style trends.

Raleigh Motus Lowstep 2023 Hydraulic Brakes

Brakes & Gears

The Raleigh Motus Lowstep 2023 models are equipped with Tektro T825 hydraulic disc brakes both front and rear. These offer solid on and off-road performance with easy reach adjustment.

These levers and calipers, paired with 160mm rotors at the front and back of the bike offer exceptional bite and great modulation, making them a great choice for a variety of terrain and riding styles. Hydraulic brakes are now very much standard on top quality ebikes, taking just a small amount of pressure to generate a stronger stopping force.

The Shimano Altus 7 speed derailleur system offers a low maintenance but high level of design, quality and function in an complete, integrated gearing package.

Wheels & Tyres

Raleigh have used their own factory rims on the Motus Lowstep models for 2023 with Shimano hubs and 700c rims. The 36mm wide rims offer the ability to fit a wide choice of tyres.

Raleigh always offer a top quality tyre on their bikes, and the Mitas 700C is no exception. Predominantly aimed at paved road use, it'll stand up to light gravel paths and the occasional byway, if thats where you happen to end up!
