The Reine Bike electric bicycle has many advantages that make it unique and special. Here are the seven points that tip the scales in favor of this jewel.
Style of the electric bike Reine Bike
The Reine Bike electric bike stands out for its neo-retro look. In other words, it is in line with the new trend while maintaining a look of the past. The ideal marriage between today and yesterday.
Its design is based on a combination of nostalgia, simplicity and authenticity. Everything is done to make it stand out from the crowd. That’s what makes it so charming and gives it a unique look.
The first thing you will notice when you look at this Reine Bike is its style. This one stands out by its assumed character. Indeed, the design of its frame with its battery that fits perfectly gives a new touch to the whole. It is impossible to ignore its reinforced mudguards that match the large tires.
The frame of this Reine Bike has clean curves contrary to what is currently on the market (straight curves). This innovation is the result of a vision that wants to be unique. The choice of elements such as the vintage saddle or the matching handles reinforces this vision even more. This means of locomotion has a real personality. Beyond the trends, it wants to be timeless.
Comfort is a determining factor in the acquisition of an electrically assisted bicycle. This is why Reine Bike makes it a point of honor to develop this aspect. All the components, high quality, integrated in this means of locomotion participate to the increase of the comfort during its use.
Handles and saddle
The first element that makes the Reine Bike a pleasure to ride is its royal drifter saddle. Combining aesthetics and comfort, the saddle is suspended, double sprung with a wide gel seat, suitable for everyday use. Herrmans grips have been added to create an assortment.
They have a flattened shape for a perfect fit in your hands. Moreover, there is no risk of irritation even after hours of walking with your means of locomotion.
Tires and suspensions
The Schwalbe – Fats Franck tires used in the Reine Bike electric bicycle also play a key role in ensuring its comfort. They are equipped with a reinforced tread.
These tires are especially resistant and spare you the worries related to punctures. With great grip even in rainy weather, they are suitable for both urban and suburban environments.
They are tires with a large air volume ensuring a real suspension, a guarantee of comfort. This solution avoids the use of conventional suspension which requires regular and more expensive maintenance. They also have a reflective strip for increased safety.
Other comfort elements
In addition to the seat and tires, there are also aluminum fenders. These are placed right next to the wheel to highlight the silhouette of the tires. They are equipped with bag holders, accessories studied for a greater integration.
To this set (saddle, tires and fenders), elements of great reliability have been associated. You have the hydraulic disc brakes for smooth and powerful braking and the Phylion B18 lithium-ion battery. In short, everything is designed to make you want to get on your bike at every opportunity and enjoy the pleasure of riding.

Practicality and equipment
Nowadays, bicycles are used for many reasons: ecological concern, cost reduction, practicality… This last point is all the more important as it greatly influences the choice of a bicycle. This is why the designers of the Reine Bike have made it a model of practicality, as evidenced by its equipment.
Chain and derailleur cover
No need to worry about riding with your white pants. The bike’s enclosed chain protects against all forms of dirt. It also reduces maintenance and ensures the bike’s durability. With the Queen Bike electric bicycle system, there is no need for a derailleur.
The system is actually based on the integration of an Enviolo city CT continuously variable hub. This is developed in the United States to climb the steep streets of San Francisco with ease.
It therefore provides the bike with optimum comfort based essentially on the simplicity of conventional transmissions. Thus, changing gears is much easier thanks to the 310% development range of the bike. At the same time it is intuitive because of the rotating handle, the transmission is always ideal…
Pannier and luggage rack
Another important point that makes the Reine Bike electric bicycle more practical is the pannier holder. It is possible to easily attach panniers, backpacks and other luggage with the international MIK and HOOK-ON hook system. The pannier holder is discreet and blends in perfectly with the bike’s frame.
Having your own electric bike is the assurance of the luggage rack and front basket options. The luggage rack option allows you to attach a box, basket or child seat. The front basket is available as an option and comes with MIK and Klickfix adapters.
Anti-theft and kickstand
It is important to talk about the front wheel lock of the electric bike Reine Bike, because it is a commendable achievement in the field. This frame lock created by Axa Block XXL is special thanks to its robustness.
It locks with ease the front wheel during a minute stop. And if you wonder about the lock, it is equipped with an anti-drilling cylinder and a hardened steel support making any theft impossible.
For those who still want more, it is possible to add a plug-in option for an anti-theft cable and chain. Unlike most electric bikes, Reine bike products are equipped with an adjustable side stand, adding to their practicality.
The electric bike is much more than a simple leisure bike. It is meant to accompany you in your daily activities. For that, the choice of the motor and the battery of the Reine Bike electric bike have been made with care in order to guarantee a pleasant experience.
Let’s remind you that your rolling tool is equipped with a Bafang M420 motor with a torque of 80 Nm. This is one of the most powerful motors on the market. This makes pedaling smooth and offers little resistance.
Also, the motor is located close to the crankset, lowering the center of gravity for a more secure stability. Finally, the force sensor ensures an assistance adapted to the effort of the cyclist.
Concerning the battery, it is of type Phylion B18. It is in fact a lithium-ion battery 36 V – 14 A/h – 504 Wh – 2,9 kg. It is incorporated in the frame of the bicycle, thus easily accessible. This battery has an autonomy of 120 km, which makes the journey more quiet.
Its recharging time is relatively short (2 h 30 min). In the event of breakdown, the extraction of the battery is carried out laterally: no risk thus to be dirtied during handling.
In addition to the motor and battery, the technological character of the Reine Bike electric bicycle includes the control display. It is distinguished mainly by its aesthetics and readability. Its use is also intuitive through the handlebar control with its three sensitive buttons.
You have easy access to all the important information you need to drive well. And if you want to charge your smartphone while you’re on the road, that’s perfectly possible. The electric bike has a USB port specially designed for this purpose.
Connectivity is also part of the technology of the Reine Bike. It offers the possibility of using “Reine Bike”, a mobile application developed in collaboration with the Nantes-based start-up Velco. This feature provides a double benefit. First of all, it is possible to have all kinds of useful information about the route. You can:
Then you get insurance against theft through geolocation, motion detector, remote blocking and alarm. Geolocation is an option that allows you to see your bike on a map, no matter where it is. The motion detector automatically alerts you to the slightest movement of the bike.
It is possible to remotely trigger the alarm of the electric bike reine Bike in case of unusual movement. Its sound power of 102 dB is particularly dissuasive. Finally, the remote blocking feature allows you to block the electric assistance from your Smartphone.
In this case, moving the bike becomes more complex. It is an adequate solution against theft. In fact, the Reine Bike is more than just a bike, it is a real connected device.
Handling of the electric bike Reine Bike
The Reine Bike electrically assisted bicycle is designed for a relaxed ride. In addition to the many points already mentioned, it has exceptional handling. Its fork, characterized by its rigidity, is made of aluminum.
It offers precision when riding and real responsiveness. The frame is also made of aluminum, so it is very resistant. It is guaranteed for ten years. Designed for a good distribution of the masses, it ensures an optimal balance.
Although I was reluctant, considering my sporty profile, I was seduced by the behavior of the bike and even by its look, with a small weakness for the Khaki version. Anyway, it’s an extremely pleasant bike to use for small or big trips. However, I will gladly let you make up your own mind !Cyclist and tester of the Reine Bike
