Kinesis UK launches new Range e-bikes

Kinesis UK has launched the new Range e-bikes.

There are two new models, powered by Fazua, a drop bar gravel bike and a fast flat bar fitness bike.

“Broaden your horizons and push your limits with Range, our new Adventure
e-bike, powered by Fazua,” said a statement.

“When tackling inclines or accelerating from a standstill, the Fazua motor kicks in to provide up to 400W of assistance right when you need it most. Above the legal 15.5mph limit, the Fazua motor disengages from your bike and becomes unnoticeable, so you can focus on enjoying the ride without resistance.

“The battery is lightweight and easy to remove, so you can easily extend your range, and only every carry as much battery as you need.”

The Range features components from the likes of Ritchey, Sector, WTB and SRAM. It has a 1x drivetrain, hydraulic brakes, 45C tubeless-ready tyres and flared bars.

Key features:

“The Range Flat Bar is an elegant electric fitness bike that makes light work of hills and allows you to travel faster, further and more frequently than ever before,” said a statement. “It features a lightweight aluminium
frame paired with the excellent Fazua Evation motor system, for a carefree and enjoyable experience on every journey.”

The Range is equipped with Shimano Deore gears and brakes. The inclusion of high volume all-terrain tyres means that the Range is “perfectly equipped” for journeys off-road.
