The Nevo Nuvinci is a state of the art electrically assisted bicycle with constantly variable transmission, powered by a Bosch Performance Cruise-drive electric motor. The output from the motor varies according to the amount of pedalling effort put in by the rider. The 500Wh battery is located on the down tube which helps to maintain a low centre of gravity without hindering rider access.

Riese and Müller is the World’s leading manufacturer of high quality electric bicycles. The company was founded by college friends Markus Riese and Heiko Müller in 1993, after they had won the Hesse Innovation Prize for their Birdy full-suspension, folding bike design. In 2008 the company entered the rapidly growing market for electrically assisted E-bikes.
