More about the Vitesse e-bike

This is a dutch style cruiser: it'll be more suited to flat roads with 6 gears and a weight of 22.9kg.

You'll get plenty of assistance though, with a 250w motor and 317w battery. The motor will provide assistance for 60-70km and the tyres are 35c to provide a good amount of cushioning along with the wide comfy saddle.

There are front and rear mudguards and pannier racks, and a handy USB charger so you can keep your devices topped up, too.

The bike is reduced from 1.45am until 7.45am, with the offer price at £829.99, reduced from £1099.99. See it here. (opens in new tab)

Delivery is free, too - which is always pretty handy on a weighty item.
