We got you covered
Our tailored eBike insurance package will protect you from:
- Accidental damage or theft
- Legal expenses
- Replacement cycle hire
- Accessories and helmets.
Cycle 2 Work Schemes
Power up your commute
We work with a number of cycle scheme providers to help make the purchase of your new eBike and accessories more affordable. Cycle schemes allow you to make a tax-free purchase, saving up to 47%, by paying for the eBike and accessories out of your pre-tax salary. Better still, being a salary sacrifice scheme, the payments are taken out of your salary over an extended period (usually 12 months) meaning you get to spread the costs also!
Cycle to Work schemes can be processed by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Who is this bike suitable for?
The Riese & Müller UBN Five Silent is an eBike to get you from A to B in fast, comfortable and serene fashion. It's lightweight, and features a Shimano Alfine Hub gear for minimal maintenance and silent shifting.
A minimalist and streamlined frame integrates an almost silent Fazua 60 drive eBike system that offers a natural riding sensation that can get you up the steepest of hills the UK has to offer. With the Silent model, you benefit from a Carbon Gates Belt Drive instead of a chain, which is less maintenance, smoother and quieter than the chain.
The UBN Five is equipped with all the essentials you need for this to be a primary mode of transport within a town, and is also capable of venturing a little off-road on gravel and canal paths.

eBike TipsRead all reviews
Riese & Müller UBN bikes feature the new Fazua Ride 60 drive eBike system. Lightweight with a sleek integration, the Fazua is synonymous with natural riding style, intuitive operation, lightweight pedalling and offers in depth connectivity with the RX Connect app.
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.
Fazua Ride 60 Motor
The Ride 60 motor unit combines a motor, gear, crank bearing and sensor in one. The motor is seamless in providing natural feeling assistance with a maximum torque of 60 Nm, a maximum power of 450W 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.
Fazua 430Wh Battery
The Fazua Energy 430 provides an impressive 430Wh of power but weighs only 2.3 kg. Its compact design means that it can be fully integrated in the frame and is super easy to remove. The battery is charged when fitted to the bike – or can be removed and charged on any normal power socket.
The UBN is the perfect urban companion. A minimal rear carrier can carry 7.5kg on either side. Supernova lights allow you to see and be seen whatever the weather. You also have TRP disc brakes to ensure you can stop quickly.
The slimline frame of the UBN incorporates the lightweight Fazue Ride 60 gravity casted into the frame, a 430Wh seamlessly integrated into the down tube, which can be easily removed for remote charging.
For the first time in the UK, RX Connect is available. Within the app, you can access riding data, statistics and safety features. You'll always know where your UBN 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.
For £308, you can add front suspension to turn the UBN into a town, and trekking eBike. The Suntour GVX32 suspension fork with 60 mm travel and suspension seatpost also provides added comfort for demanding urban riding.
Optional Comfort Kit
Consisting of swept back handlebars, platform grips and a wider saddle, you can sit comfortably in an upright position with the Comfort Kit for £47.
Optional Rear Wheel Lock
Add the integrated rear wheel lock for £47 that is permanently fixed so your bike is secured in an instant. The lock clicks shut simultaneously with the battery lock so you need only one key for your eBike.
