  • The Raleigh Motus 2022 range gives you a great choice between e-bikes with different gear systems - hub or derailleur. But what do either of those terms mean?

    Derailleur systems (the more common of the two options) operate using a mechanical arm to move the chain from one sprocket to the next.

    Pro's:

      • More gearing options
      • Easier to fix and maintain
      • A lighter option, therefore offering slightly quicker acceleration

    Con's:

      • More maintenance is required (every few hundred miles you'll need to clean & re-oil the chain)

     

    Hub gears are hidden away within a sealed drivetrain unit and the gears are selected internally.

    Pro's:

      • Longer life span
      • Significantly less maintenance (as the mechanism is encased and therefore protected from the elements)

    Con's

      • Smaller range of gears
      • Not as efficient as a derailleur system and slightly more expensive to fix if there is a problem
