The RC500 is Bikel’s new carbon electric road bike and the flagship of e-roads for 2023. The introduction of this new carbon fiber racing frame allows long-distance enthusiasts to combine practicality and lightness with their e-road bike. With a clean and elegant design and integrated wiring, Bikel’s new carbon electric racing bike is suitable for asphalt roads and any slope you decide to tackle, whether it’s a plain, hill, or mountain. The new Polini E-P3+ electric motor with an integrated 500 Wh battery ensures fun for any itinerary, offering maximum performance of assisted pedaling that feels almost completely natural, giving the sensation of being on a traditional racing bike.
The RC500 features a unidirectional carbon fiber frame (same material as the fork), Deda Superzero carbon handlebar, and aluminum wheels (or upon request, URSUSS MIURA C37 or C50 carbon wheels). The Shimano Ultegra 11-speed transmission and brakes, with a choice of 34, 36, 50 or 52 chainrings, have been specially integrated to ensure greater chain durability, given its thickness while minimizing stress as much as possible (RC500 also comes with a Gear Sensor). The MAVIC AKSIUM Disc 700 wheels with 12mm axles can be equipped with tires up to 30 mm. This Bikel’s carbon electric road bike weighs just over 15 kg, which, compared to the competition, and with its 500 Wh battery, is the top of the e-road category. However, if 500 watts are not enough, the RC500 can also be equipped with a bottle battery and reach a total of 750 watts, ensuring much longer rides or greater range, always at maximum speed.
