From first impressions, you would think that we would be very unlikely to sell an electric bike that looks so unashamedly chunky...and you would be very wrong. The Bergamont E-Villes have been such a favourite of our customers that we celebrate any new stock that comes in. The reason? They have the perfect balance of comfort to power. The feeling of stability you get on an E-Ville is unparalleled - all the weight is centered and low (well done design team) and you, the rider, can enjoy a serenely unwobbly ride.
Loaded with our favourite components
The motor system is a Bosh generation 4 Performance CX motor. You don't have to remember all that. You just have to know that it is powerful and smooth and you will never again experience the dread of seeing a hill ahead of you on your bike ride. This is a motor that was designed primarily for the sporty, off-road e-bikes, but put into the E-Ville frame, you have the equivalent of an SUV but an SUV that has a tiny carbon footprint and can go where cars are not allowed! We will also highlight the tyres. The Schwalbe Marathon E-Plus tyres are very puncture resistant and we often are asked to add them to other e-bikes. They're a road tyre essentially, so keep to the tarmac or smooth pathways.
Convert to Cargo E-bike?
You may notice at the front of this bike, two holes on the headstem. This is where you can attach a front carrier (not included) should you wish to upgrade your E-Ville to be an all-purpose cargo bike. Trust us when we say you can carry a lot more than you think when you go shopping by electric bike. You'll also feel so smug when you ride past all the cars which are still hunting for car parking, when you cycle your e-bike right to the bike parking at the front of the store! The total "system weight" (rider, bike, and cargo together) it can carry is 160kg!
Summary: A bike built for stability and comfort with the guts of an electric mountain bike. If you want to feel in complete control of your ride when you're on the road, this bike is for you.
As with all our e-bikes, this is available to test-ride. Contact your nearest showroom to reserve your slot. Size guide: 50cm

About the Bergamont brand
Bergamont come from the St. Pauli district of the German city of Hamburg. We took them on originally for their super comfortable and stable stepthrough bikes but their other designs have impressed us so much that we have expanded our range of Bergamont electric bikes to include electric mountain bikes and electric trekking bikes too.
Bergamont want to create a world where you will happily chose the electric bike instead of a car. You can tell that as soon as you get on one of their bikes. You can feel that they are built for frequent use; there's something about how stable they feel on the ground. They inspire cycling confidence, and if that's what you're after, this is the brand for you.
