Ridgeback Arcus 2 Open Frame Hybrid Electric Bike - 2021

The second generation of the Arcus has become more refined without losing any of its original practical charms. The Arcus 2 is built around a 6061 heat-treated aluminium lightweight and strong frame which is paired with a 63mm travel suspension fork which makes sure you maintain a comfortable ride whatever the terrain.

Equipped with a Sport drive MD250S drive unit offering 250w of power and up to 90nm of torque mounted in the bottom bracket it allows you to take on any urban environment. Finished off with full-length guards, pannier rack and lights out of the box the Arcus 2 is a truly modern urban utility bike.
