Riding as though by itself.

It's all harmony from here: The beefy Bosch motor and infinitely adjustable NuVinci automatic gearhub that shifts like magic ensure effortlessness and ease of use like never before. The rigid STEVENS frame and high-quality equipment conquer even the most challenging everyday situation. The 500 Wh battery ensures it will stay this way even over long distances.

  • Comfortable pedelec with integrated automatic stepless gear hub
  • Bosch Performance system with 250 W and 60 Nm
  • Air suspension fork w/ integrated light mount and thru-axle
  • Bright Busch&M
  • Precise, strong Shimano disc brakes

Technology

Nuvinci H-Sync

There has never been more system integration on a bike: The BOSCH display mounted on the STEVENS E-Caprile and E-Carpo provides full control over the automatic shifting - it monitors the gears inside the stepless NuVinci 380 hub and matches it to your preferred cadence that the system can be adjusted to.

500-Wh-Akku

Hier wird über Erfolg oder Misserfolg der E-Mobilität entschieden. Also setzt STEVENS bei seinen Top-Modellen Akkus mit satten 500 Wattstunden Energiegehalt für bis zu 215 Kilometer Reichweite (laut Herstellerinfo; bitte beachten Sie den Bosch-Reichweiten-Rechner) ein. Das geht sogar ohne großen Gewichtsnachteil: Das Bosch PowerPack 500 zum Beispiel ist gegenüber dem PowerPack 400 nur um 100 Gramm schwerer – darum ist der große „Tank“ unser Top-Tipp für Pedelec-Piloten, die auch vor bergigen Strecken nicht zurückschrecken. Und unsere E-Fullys mit Shimano STEPS-Antrieb sind für Alpen-Abenteuer wohl gerüstet.

QR15-Steckachse vorn

Die „15“ steht für den Achsdurchmesser, das „QR“ für „Quick Release“, also Schnellspanner – und zusammen für die funktionellste Methode, das Vorderrad in der (Feder-)Gabel zu verankern. Die Vorteile sind bestechend: hohe Steifigkeit, präzise Bremsscheiben-Positionierung und kinderleichte Bedienung. Also stattet STEVENS fast alle Mountainbikes und sogar die hochwertigsten Trekking-, Crossbikes und Pedelecs damit aus. Vor allem bei den 29“-MTBs wird sogar noch die Einbaubreite erhöht – von 100 auf 110 mm, das ist noch steifer.

Even when you can't see the strut that connects the pannier rack to the fender - it is there. The strut runs below the fender and provides - in connection with the rack mounted to the fender - more stability and lateral stiffness.

Reifenfreiheit bis 47mm

Wer häufiger auf Strecken mit weniger glattem Untergrund unterwegs ist, kann bis zu 47 mm breite Reifen montieren – und dann von mehr Fahrkomfort und Pannenschutz profitieren, die deren größeres Luftvolumen mit sich bringt, weil nunmehr mit geringerem Reifenluftdruck gefahren werden kann. Die Rahmen und Gabeln dieser Bikes sind jedenfalls schon darauf vorbereitet.

Tapered Seat Tube

The seat tube tapers from top to bottom. At the top it fits a slim 27.2mm seatpost that offers some flex and therefore increases comfort especially when riding over rough ground. At the bottom the large diameter nicley flows into the bottom bracket shell and downtube to provide great stiffness and drivetrain efficiency.

Lenker-Scheinwerfer (Pedelec)

Systemlaufräder

Die erhöhte Anbringung vor dem Lenker-Display sorgt für eine noch bessere Ausleuchtung der Straße als bei der herkömmlichen Gabelmontage, da der Reifen keinen Schatten wirft. Und das ist gut so, denn schließlich sind Sie mit unseren Top-Pedelecs ja auch schneller unterwegs als bisher gewohnt.

Hydroforming

Using water or oil pressure aluminium tubes are transformed from their original round shape into their ideal shape determined by STEVENS engineers to perfectly withstand any load without any weight penalty. Riders of allround bikes and pedelecs will benefit from a better stability caused by hydroforming even when they are touring with heavy luggage.

Tapered Steerer / Tapered Headtube

Fork shaft (or steerer tube) and head tube are tapered, meaning their diameter increases from top to bottom resulting in a conical shape. The diameter needs to be bigger at the bottom since this is where higher stress is applied - especially when the bike has a higher total weight due to luggage or an e-drive and battery. Also tapered steerers feature a smoother force transfer (like forces caused by hard braking) to the downtube than forks with a continuous 1 1/8" diameter.

Triple Butted, Double Butted

Meaning a frame tube has three or two different wall thicknesses along its length. Triple butted (TB) is the usual technology with STEVENS high-quality frames.
Tubes with different wall thicknesses are optimally adjusted to certain ways of manufacturing or to withstand specific loads. Where the highest loads occur or where tubes are welded, walls are the thickest. Butted tubes allow frame weight to be lower by several hundred grams.

Adjustable Dropouts

High quality STEVENS frames equipped with a gear hub or Pinion 18-gear box come with adjustable dropouts. These make correct tensioning of the chain or drive belt very easy. Adjustment via headless set screw and Allen key allows very precise alignement. Two fastening bolts on each side provide tight grip. On bikes with derailleur shifting the chain is tensioned by the derailleur.

Hydraulic Disc Brakes – Trekking

There is no more reliable brake system than hydraulic disc brakes - that is why we strongly advice everyone, who is riding their cross, trekking- or city bike 12 months a year to choose one of our models with the „DISC“ suffix. Brake power is easy to modulate and does not fade a bit in the wet. Also the brakes are almost maintenance-free. And your local STEVENS dealer will gladly explain to you what you need to take care of when removing and re-installing a wheel

The best touring pedelec for all who ride in the city often. But it's also a great allround package.

Nothing to complain in terms of safety. Superior gear hub with stepless transmission. Preselection of cadence works perfectly - even with heavy pedalling force.
