Ridley RES U500 Altus Mens Urban E-Bike
The Ridley RES U500 Altus Mens Urban E-Bike is a strong, durable and stylish urban electric bike that has a high-quality alloy frame equipped with a rigid fork, a Shimano E5000 drive unit, a Shimano Altus 9-Speed gearset and hydraulic disc brakes.
The RES U500 is ideal for inner-city errands, daily commutes and weekend countryside adventures. It features an agile and comfortable aluminum frame that holds the Shimano E5000 and mid-integrated battery - ensuring a stable and easy-to-control riding experience. Ridley has also equipped it with a slick-shifting Shimano Altus 9-Speed groupset with powerful Shimano MT200 hydraulic disc brakes.
Agile, Durable and Lightweight Electric Urban Bike
A comfortable, reliable and lightweight E-Bike. That’s the RES U500. This E-Bike is lighter than most E-Bikes because the battery is located on the frame. This not only ensures better weight distribution and therefore better bike handling, but it also makes it possible to take the battery with you (for recharging).
Adjustable, Comfortable and Versatile E-Bike
The U500 is equipped with four levels of support. You can easily adjust the bicycle: change the saddle height and handlebar angle to set your ideal riding position. The handles of the bike are ergonomic and rotatable, so you can find the best position for yourself. The Continental tires have low rolling resistance and double puncture protection with good cushioning. In addition, the geometry ensures that you can ride comfortably.
Shimano E5000 Electric Motor Drive
The battery has a range of approximately 70 kilometers. The U500 is equipped with a Shimano 5000 mid-motor, one of the most well-known motor systems built by Shimano. The mid-mounted motor and geometry of the U500 provide a stable and reliable riding experience. The bike is easily connected to Shimano’s E-Tube app which allows you to see how full the battery is, install software updates and change settings.
The U500 is an ergonomic E-Bike with maximum comfort, perfect for commuting, a quick errand in the city center or a recreational cycling tour.
Visibility and Safety
The certified lock with a safety label keeps your bike safe when it is parked, The mounted lights on the RES will improve your visibility not only for the rider but also for the all-around traffic. Ridley also added reflective decals as an extra safety feature that will light up when you are spotted in bad or dark weather.
That makes it possible to carry the battery and charge it at any place where you have power available.
All Weather Disc Brake Reliability
Disc brakes are one of the newest game-changing evolutions in road cycling. They add that extra level of security to any ride, knowing that you can always stop on demand. They are equally reliable in all weather conditions. The ease of braking is a real bonus, especially when your hands are frozen and barely functional. Just a light pull on the lever to modulate your speed. With no need for braking on the rim surface, wear and tear are reduced. This gets you much more mileage from your wheelset.
Adjustable Comfort to Suit Every Rider
To adjust your ride to the most comfortable position, there is a possibility to adjust the saddle for the ideal height. The adjustable stem can elevator the handlebar for a straighter back position and the adjustable grips for the best placement for your hands. This is in combination with Ridley’s E-bike-specific tire that reduces shocks and enhances traction and grip for maximum rider comfort and control.
Convenient and Durable Rear Carrier Rack
The RES E-bikes are equipped with a strong carrier where you can carry up to 15kg of cargo. There is also a possibility to add bags or other attachments to this rack to make your journey versatile.
