Riese and Muller have announced additional safety features for 2019 models, including some models fitted with daytime running, full headlight and rear brakelights to “see and be seen.”
2019 Homage and Delite models will be fitted with ‘main beam’ front lights and rear brakelights, while all e-bike models will be fitted with daytime running front lights.
As well as better illumination in the winter months and poor weather conditions, an integral headlight flash function – part of the light system on the Homage and Delite models – gives riders the option of actively attracting the attention of other road users to their presence. The company say its operation and use are similar to that of a car, with full beam activated at the press of a button fitted directly on the handlebar of the e-bike.
“A high degree of safety and comfort are crucial criteria when it comes to opting for a specific E-Bike. Our technologies are helping riders to feel safe in all weather, at the same time as making use of really relevant safety features. With the addition of main beam and brake light to our Control Technology, we are fitting yet another safety-related technology – features that everyone is familiar with from driving a car. These lights will give riders an E-Bike incorporating even greater active safety in traffic. Combined with the optional Bosch eBike ABS, we currently have some of the safest E-Bikes currently on the market”, explains Markus Riese, founder and Managing Director of Riese & Müller.
