Downright impressive.

The minimalist and slimline design of the UBN Five is all bike through and through. It boasts a contemporary linear frame design that perfectly integrates the Fazua drive system. The optimum positioning of the motor and battery is almost imperceptible within the frame, ensuring you enjoy a natural riding experience. The battery can easily be removed from the bike for charging – but it can also be charged through the charging socket when fitted to the bike.

The cyclists' E-Bike.

The UBN Five, weighing just 19,5 kg (touring model), is a lightweight among fully equipped Premium e-Bikes. The perfectly coordinated Fazua Ride 60 drive system provides 60 Nm of torque and 430 Wh of battery power, just the right level of assistance you need for a dynamic riding experience in the city. And the UBN Five can also be easily ridden without pedalling resistance even without assistance.

Keeping an eye on the road.

The well-arranged cockpit focuses on riding enjoyment, making operation an after-thought. Simply use the Ring Control to select the right riding mode. The coloured LEDs in the LED hub in the top tube display the selected mode and the charge level. An SP Connect port is integrated on the stem to use a smartphone, which can be charged by a USB-C cable (smartphone sleeve is available separately).

Fully connected.

Get connected simply and easily using the RX Connect app for your bike – to access riding data, statistics and safety features. You’ll always know where your UBN Five is, thanks to its integrated RX Chip. It activates the alarm by the app if your bike is moved, which then reacts with light, sound or a push notification. When riding, you can also use Bluetooth to connect up your smartphone as a bike computer on the handlebar, which lets you keep an eye on your speed, range and performance data at all times. You can also access detailed riding statistics, including GPS data, at a later stage – regardless of whether you have used your smartphone during the trip or not. The ConnectRide RX Service, free of charge for the first year, is required to activate connectivity.

Tailor-made for the urban jungle.

You can now set off safely and worry-free on the UBN Five, thanks to its perfectly coordinated equipment – you’re ideally set up for urban riding as we have thought of everything. The minimalist pannier rack is ideal for attaching panniers to your bike, enabling you to securely stow away your laptop and documents. The built-in Supernova Mini2 headlight ensures that you are easily seen in urban traffic, lighting up the road ahead in the dark. And in the event that urban traffic crosses your path, then the TRP disc brakes ensure you can stop quickly.

The Fazua System

Fazua, the drive manufacturer, is synonymous with natural riding style, intuitive operation and light weight. The system is ideal for lightweight E-Bikes and is used on Riese & Müller UBN bikes.

Riese & Müller UBN bikes feature the Fazua Ride 60 drive. Thanks to the perfectly coordinated interplay of the individual components, the drive system delivers an extremely natural riding experience – the motor assistance is perfectly integrated into the natural cycling movement. And, visually, the system is also integrated almost seamlessly into the bikes. The intuitive Ring Control operation of the drive system and minimalist LED control hub in the top tube allow riders to fully focus on the road at all times, obviating the need for a traditional display.

The Fazua motor

The Ride 60 motor unit combines a motor, gear, crank bearing and sensor in one. The motor always provides the right assistance with a maximum torque of 60 Nm, a maximum power of 450 W and the choice of three riding modes. It also works almost silently and, thanks to its compact dimensions, can be integrated unobtrusively into the frame. Weighing only 1.96 kg, the motor unit is also extremely lightweight.




The Fazua battery

Thanks to its optimum cell arrangement, the Fazua Energy 430 provides an impressive 430 Wh of power but weighs only 2.3 kg: a lightweight amongst batteries. Its compact design means that it can be fully integrated in the frame and is nonetheless easy to remove. The battery is charged when fitted to the bike – or can be removed and charged on any normal 110/220 V power socket.



The Fazua LED control hub and Ring Control

The LED hub in the top tube uses coloured LEDs to inform riders about the riding mode selected and the current charge level. It also features an USB-C charging port for your smartphone, plus Bluetooth to pair your smartphone with the free RX Connect app, and then use it as a display. The system is controlled by the Ring Control on the handlebar. Use it to select riding modes, activate the pushing aid or switch on the light.

RX Connect

RX Connect. The digitalisation of your UBN bike.

Tomorrow’s mobility is digital and connected. That’s why we have also developed Riese & Müller RX Connect alongside continuously designing better E-Bikes. RX Connect is the digital extension of your E-Bike. And we always ensure we make the most out of your riding experience, while supporting you individually and providing you with important information about your E-Bike. The digital services are being constantly extended to ensure the very best ‘Rider Experience’ (abbreviated to RX).

Everything in one place.

Registering your E-Bike gives you a free Premium warranty and access to your own personal My Bike Account (service platform) where you can access your bike’s technical data and manage your personal data yourself. My Bike is being continuously extended, giving you access to a growing number of functions. Of course, we adhere to the most stringent data protection standards at all times.

One small chip for an E-Bike – one giant leap for mobility.

The invisible yet permanently fitted RX Chip transforms your E-Bike into a Connected E-Bike. It enables you to localise and connect your bike, providing access to the ConnectRide RX Service. The RX Chip boasts wireless-based geolocation technology and extensive sensors and transmits your data, including location and riding statistics, by state-of-the-art radio technology. This technology transmits signals across a wider range and with deep building penetration coupled with low battery consumption. The chip gets its power from the internal power supply in the bike, but, thanks to its built-in power store, keeps transmitting for quite a while longer, even if the E-Bike battery is removed. There is no need to replace the RX Chip for service updates. New functions and services are provided automatically via over-the-air updates.

Log into your My Bike Account for more information on the ConnectRide RX Service.

The cockpit for UBN bikes

The RX Connect app is the mobile cockpit for your UBN bike. The app connects you directly to your bike via the RX Chip (if an RX Service is booked). Use the RX Connect app as a bike computer on your handlebar while riding, letting you keep an eye on speed, range and performance data at all times. You can also access detailed riding statistics, including GPS data, at a later stage. If required, you can also switch on the digital alarm for your UBN bike via the app to be notified should it be moved or removed.* The app also offers access to dealers and service workshops close to you plus all the data in your My Bike Account. When you request a location, it also informs you about the battery level of the RX Chip, allowing you to promptly charge it if it has been idle for some time.

* Push notifications and geolocation services need to be enabled to use these features.
