Raleigh Array Electric Bike

Raleigh have responded to the electric bike boom with the new range for 2017 consisting of fourteen models. At the top of the range are the Bosch-powered Motus and the Shimano Steps fully-auto Strada Electric, and at the £1,000 entry-level mark is the new Array.

Coming in both crossbar and step-through versions, and in three different colour combinations (Navy, Black, and Denim - light blue!), the Array is sure to satisfy anyone looking for a commuter / runabout electric bike that is very simple, very smart, and very kind on the wallet (£42 a month on Raleigh’s interest-free credit).

There’s no skimping on the mileage on the Array. A 300Wh battery will get you around forty miles, pretty impressive for a leisure-focused electric bike. Both the E-motion front-hub motor and the battery have been designed by Accell Netherlands, the parent company of Raleigh and other big brands in Europe. Five assistance levels on the clear grey/green display and the battery life keep things simple. There’s even a ‘walk’ mode, a button you can press to help the bike move along if you walk beside it.

The Array comes with mudguards, lights, and a rear carrier, everything you need from an entry-level electric bike. And it looks modern but classic with it!

As you can see from the photos, it’s a surety that at least one of the three Array styles will suit you. And none of them are clearly aimed at a woman or man, which is refreshing. Array means ‘an impressive display’. Perfectly titled.
