Schindelhauer Hannah Enviolo women's e-bike review


A stylish city bike with a host of clever details that raise it above the ranks and show classic German high-quality engineering

The near-total integration of the components makes for a beautifully simple-looking bike
The simple appearance belies the high spec, which is reflected in the price

With its stylish and well-equipped electric bikes for city riding, Schindelhauer sets the standard for others to follow. On first appearance the Hannah Enviolo could simply be another step-through framed city bike – it’s that simple-looking.

But to describe as simple is to do it a gross injustice. The Hannah not only hides its electric credentials but incorporates many clever features too.

For starters there’s no need to worry about a messy, oily chain. In place of this, there is a Gates CDX belt drive that works with an Enviolo variable transmission built into the rear hub.

This clever hub will ensure that you always get the maximum benefit from the Bosch Performance Line motor tucked away in the base of the aluminium frame between the cranks.

Similarly, the matching Bosch Powertube battery is hidden away in the frame, as are the brake cables.

That concept of keeping everything integrated extends beyond the obvious motor and battery to the mudguards and lights.

The Hannah’s Wingee mudguards not only help protect the rider from road dirt and rain but carry the assimilated Supernova lighting system too.

That’s not the only trick in the Wingee’s bag: the stays for the rear mudguard do double duty as mounting points for bags. Should you want to carry heavier items, Schindelhauer also offers the option of a luggage rack for the front of the Hannah.

Given that the Hannah will mostly be ridden on city streets, the use of large-profile WTB tyres is a wise choice because the generous capacity of the wide tyres will easily deal with the worst potholes and bumps.

However, if you need to stop quickly to avoid a hazard the Shimano disc brakes won’t let you down.
