Riese and Müller bikes are manufactured in their state-of-the-art factory in Mühltal, Germany. There they build a whopping 450 bikes a day with the help of more than 550 employees.
And who are Riese & Müller? The brand is named for Markus Riese and Heiko Müller, best friends and co-founders of the company. They first got into business together as earmuff manufacturers, but their shared love of cycling (and compact head warmers) soon led them to design a folding bike called “the birdy.” And as they say, the rest is history!
Founded in 1993, Riese and Müller are relatively new to the bike building scene, compared to other German manufacturers who have been in the business for centuries. But they have been on the cutting edge of the industry since their inception and quickly pulled ahead of the pack with their comfortable, stylish, luxury bikes.
Guided by the motto, “born of conviction” the brand prides themselves on prioritizing customer satisfaction, state-of-the-art technology, and pioneering design.
Riese & Müller may not be competing to be the lowest price electric bike, but they are winning the competition to be the best quality e-bike money can buy. No more settling for electric bikes that are almost perfect, because they build every single bike to order.
Riese & Müller is one of the most reputable high-end brands in the e-bike industry, and they are out-competing other German brands that have been building bikes for centuries.
Despite the brand’s relative youth, they bring the same high-quality craftsmanship you’d expect from any German-made bicycle.
The high-end price tag comes not only with quality design and top integrated components, but also some of the most sought-after extra features like an integrated second battery, and more belt drive options than you can imagine.
Plus Riese & Müller provides the components and accessories you’d expect from high-end e-bikes. You’ll feel the “made in Germany difference in the torque, handling, and stability.
They offer 12,000 possible bike configurations, way more configurations than any other manufacturer, so you can be sure you get the bike that is perfect for you.
Whether you’re a commuter looking for a high-speed, full-suspension bike to get you from point A to B or a family looking for a cargo bike to haul your most precious cargo around, Riese & Müller has got you covered.
One of the reasons we’re so stoked on Riese & Müller is that more than half of their staff commute on a Riese & Müller eBike every day. Like the fam at Fly Rides, this staff is clearly dedicated to the electric bike lifestyle.
Nothing shows the commitment Riese & Müller has to building premium electric bikes like their design features and the components they use.
Their full suspension bikes are not just set up with any old linkage system. They’re built with Riese & Müller’s patented Control Technology so that their bikes can do what they do best: keep you comfortable while riding.
All Riese & Müller eBikes come with a Bosch motor and battery. With a motor like this, you might think they cut corners somewhere else on the bike just to see if you'd notice. Nope. With drivetrain choices between the Shimano Deore XT, the Vario internally geared hub, and the hill-crushing gear ratio of the Rohloff, it’s clear that they intend to make every electric bike they build one that leaves the rider thinking “perfect.”
Add the capability to have not just one battery, but dual batteries, and you start to understand why every Riese & Müller model comes out perfect year after year.
