These BH AtomX Cross E-Bike All-Rounders are Seriously Impressive

2020 BH AtomX Cross electric bikes are impressive all-rounders that will dominate next season with 720Wh and 500Wh battery capacities and Brose Drive S Mag across the range.

BH Rebel Volt Folding Electric Bike with Yamaha PW-TE motor

Introducing the new 2020 BH Rebel Volt Folding Electric Bike with Yamaha PW-TE motor and Automatic Support Mode.

We’ve sold many folding electric bikes. In the early days, we sold nothing else. But we’ve never sold a folding electric bike with Yamaha motor before.

And we’ve certainly never sold one with Automatic Support Mode.

For those reasons and others (like the price) the 2020 BH Rebel Volt is a folding ebike we’re excited to offer to UK customers for the first time.

BH Atom E-Bikes Amaze with their new 720Wh Battery Pack

BH has stunned the e-bike world with their latest range of Atom city e-bikes. Range between charges has always been of prime concern for electric bike buyers. Over the past ten years, 50cycles has led the way by offering bikes with the largest battery capacities.

Recent years saw Kalkhoff batteries with 540Wh then 612Wh battery packs on selected Impulse 2.0 models.

Bosch has caught up by adding 625Wh batteries to their 2020 range.

Now Kalkhoff has nudged up battery capacity to 660Wh in 2020 on some of their latest models.

But BH has gone further. Many of their 2020 e-bikes come with 720Wh fully-integrated batteries (fully integrated means the battery is completely hidden inside the frame). Continue reading “BH Atom E-Bikes Amaze with their new 720Wh Battery Pack”

2020 BH Electric Bikes: Focus on BH Atom Range

For many years our best-selling bike was the Kalkhoff Agattu. It went through many versions but essentially remained a comfortable, capable, much-loved step-thru electric bike.

We sold around 20,000 of them over the years and many of the early examples are still being ridden every day.

So many we put out a call for trade-ins of old Agattu for new electric bikes. We service and then list them on our website with other old Kalkhoffs and they always sell out within a few days.

But they do have their limitations. Kalkhoff never succeeded in properly integrating the battery pack into the frame and battery capacity was limited. Kalkhoff also utterly lost the plot with after-sales support in recent years, so we had to let them go.

So, what are our customers trading-in their beloved Agattus for? Continue reading “2020 BH Electric Bikes: Focus on BH Atom Range”

BH ready to conquer in France with the Arkéa-Samsic

2019 is the year BH bicycles will conquer all in the professional road cycling calendar. Its union with Arkéa-Samsic guarantees the team’s BH Ultralight EVO and BH G7 Pro will rank well this season.

They’re building on 2018’s showing in the high mountains with Warren Barguil, who’s back with the team this season. Now they will also do so in the fastest starts, most furious sprints and tightest stage finishes.

The signing of the German Andre Greipel represents a huge leap in quality for the team Arkéa-Samsic. They’ll soon see how he joins the fight for the many victories that are decided in big sprints. Continue reading “BH ready to conquer in France with the Arkéa-Samsic”

BH X-TEP Lynx 5.5 Pro S Review – Demands you to take it to the nearest trail

Review of 2019 BH X-Tep Lynx 5.5 Electric Mountain Bike available in the UK exclusively via 50cycles. Shimano E8000 motor, integrated 720Wh battery pack and innovative geometry make for plenty of outstanding riding.

Review of the 2019 BH X-Tep Lynx 5.5 Pro S

More and more e-bike manufacturers are installing powerful batteries. And Spanish brand BH is no exception. Their new the X-TEP comes with a class-leading 720 Wh battery pack.

This All-Mountain charger, based on Shimano’s E-MTB engine Steps E8000 motor, breaks new ground, especially in terms of battery life. The battery pack, as with many current E-MTBs, is integrated inside the down tube.

However, it is not taken to the side or down, but pulled upwards. The long design and a new, more compact cell structure allow you to store enormous 720 Wh in the X-TEP. The standard for most e-bikes – notably Bosch-powered ones – is currently at 500 Wh.

The fact that BH has almost 50 per cent more battery power available reflects a current trend – as Specialized recently showed on the new Levo with 700 Wh battery. But, compared to the American brand, BH offers the largest battery in all models, not just the £8000+ models like Specialized.

The bike is very smart in other ways: using a wristband, you can open the electronic battery door (a key is also included).

It’s also when NEXT SEASON’S models start to appear. Continue reading “Haibike Flyon delivery delay disappoints customers”
