It was clear to us that we could run riot in terms of components, but it would not make any sense to advance into regions where the pedelec middle class cavorts. So no ROHLOFF gear hub, but the Nexus gear hub by SHIMANO also suitable for home use, one with seven and one with eight gears, and free-wheel hub or coaster brake.
And meaningful shaping measures for the frame material too: aluminium instead of carbon as this is better suited to everyday use and can also be worked into an eye-catching shape thanks to modern hydroforming techniques. The chunky and comfortable Super Moto tyres by SCHWALBE have proven to be successful on the urban VICTORIA pedelec range. So we have used these here too. A clear visual line is provided by the specially produced RACKTIME carrier with integrated rear light that just blends into the whole picture perfectly. It also can carry a remarkable maximum load of 25 kg making it quite a packhorse. The VICTORIA Urban retains it stability even with heavy loads which is no mean feat for a bike with a low step-through.
Furthermore, the XXL concept has been adopted from the urban eBike division. In plain text, this means that the non-electric urban range is also designed for a maximum permissible total vehicle weight of 170 kg. This figure naturally includes the rider and luggage.
