“E-bikes under your own brand and market launch in a maximum of 12 months? No problem!” This is the promise made by the importer Messingschlager from Baunach in Franconia, Germany. Supported by the development and procurement expertise of the largest European bicycle parts importer, the customer can configure e-bikes from eight different concept platforms or contribute their own concept ideas. The latest model is the MUC.C.al SUV with Brose drive.
City e-bikes have many advantages, but are inferior to normal e-mountain bikes in terms of off-road suitability. This model is designed as an all-road e-bike, ideal for on- and off-road, combining the advantages of a low entry with greater off-road mobility. The SUV is equipped and well prepared for all eventualities, whether on a weekend tour or a shopping trip to the weekly market. This is guaranteed by a powerful lighting system, elegant integration of mudguards and luggage rack, as well as thick knobby tires. The battery removal was designed in such a way that the cover and battery can be removed upwards without tools, thus fulfilling important ergonomic aspects. The geometry and seating position promise a high level of comfort and touring suitability in urban areas as well as on gravel or forest paths. In terms of power transmission, great importance was attached to the maximum possible compatibility, with an open frame triangle, so that chain, hub and belt drives can be installed without any problems. All Brose Generation 2 motors with 50 – 90 Nm torque are available as a drive, with a choice of two batteries (522 or 630 Wh) and the displays from Brose. Interested visitors can view the complete range of e-bike concepts at the Messingschlager exhibition stand in Hall A5/100.
