Not sure which E-Bike is right for you?

E-Bikes are an exciting new part of the cycling market, and our range of E-Bikes has a model to suit all riders. However, most people still haven’t ridden an E-Bike, so its natural to have questions about them. You can contact our Ribble Live team HERE to speak to our friendly experts right away. Alternatively, we offer free demo rides from our flagship Clitheroe showroom, and you can find out how to book HERE. We have also written a blog to answer the most common questions HERE.


The perfect blend of style, comfort and efficiency, the Hybrid AL e combines features and technology with classic British styling.  Fully equipped for fun on city cruises, commutes and day trips, it features a rear rack for your favourite luggage, mudguards to keep the spray away and lights to announce your presence.

At home in the city and on the trails, this cycle scheme-approved bike is the choice for those who want to enjoy riding without being limited by terrain or distance.


A rear rack and mudguards provide you with the versatility of being able to zip around town carrying those everyday essentials while remaining cleaner and drier when the weather is less than perfect.  Perfect for the daily commute, popping to the local store for groceries or fun-filled multi-day bikepacking adventures.

Using our famous BikeBuilder, you can customise and accessorise your bike. So, changing your tyres and saddle preferences is a breeze.


A lightweight hub-drive motor provides smooth, reliable power assistance and near-zero drag in off mode, ensuring your ride feels as natural as a traditional bike. The slimline and lightweight Panasonic 36V/250Wh battery fits discreetly within the frame's downtube, reaches maximum capacity from fully depleted in only 3.5 hours and is capable of providing up to 60 miles of assistance over variable terrain.

A lightweight and robust aluminium frame makes the Hybrid AL e just as good for putting on the car for a fun weekend away as it is for the morning commute.

As the MAHLE SmartBike System weighs just 3.5kg, you get all the benefits of a smart e-bike system with none of the typical compromises.


From the classically styled paintwork to the matched handlebar grips and cushioned saddle, every aspect of the Hybrid AL e has been carefully curated to deliver the perfect blend of style and comfort.


The MAHLE SmartBike Systems smartphone app can help you keep track of all you need with journeys, locations, speeds, maps and much more.

Should you have a problem with the system and you have the app connected, our experts can run remote diagnostics from wherever you are to help get you back on your journey.
