The LifeS is the signature e-bike model of Corratec. Designed to be extremely easy to ride, low maintenance, and fits both small and tall riders. The LifeS features small wheels (think motor scooter) and has a clever design that enables the rider to have both feet flat on the ground while sitting on the seat which results in an e-bike that is very comfortable and stable to get on and off.

The Corratec Life S is one of those bikes that perfectly fits a very large customer desire that most of the bike industry failed to even see – an electric bike that was as easy to ride for new and returning bike riders.

It’s got a low step through to make it easy to get on, a low centre of gravity to make the weight easy to manage, internal hub gears that are easy to shift, the Bosch Active Line Plus system with a torque sensor that is smooth and intuitive, and best of all – customised geometry to allow you to pedal comfortably and have both feet flat on the ground when you pull up, whether you are shorter or taller! It was especially refreshing to see this model with high quality components from the Bosch motor and 500Wh battery capacity to the Shimano brakes and gears.

Fine German design: the devil is in the details
The spring loaded saddle by Corratec’s own in-house ZZYZX brand results in a very smooth, comfortable ride. This retro style component harmonizes well with the “laid back” image of the Life S, complemented by the comfort grips on the bar permitting full contact by the palm of the hand and the wide platform of the Ergotec pedals. The latter offers a large surface for even riding in boots, but virtually any size of footwear will have a stable platform to push against.

All the components on the bike are well-designed chosen purposefully for this type of bike and the associated riding style. The parts are plenty robust, like the massive kickstand or the integrated rack which can carry a whopping 50 pounds. The latter can also be used as a handle when the bike needs to be lifted. The racks hold the AXA Compact Line rear LED light complemented by the fork-mounted front unit boasting 20 Lux power. So the lights are always on hand, and they operate from the main e-bike battery, so there is no scarcity of power when it comes the night riding.

A good motor unit is key to success when it comes to e-bikes, and Corratec didn’t leave anything to chance in this regard. The Life S is powered by the Bosch Active Line Plus drive system, which offers torque-based pedal assistance, making it one the mast advanced unit in its price segment. It represents the third generation of e-bike motors by the German specialist, the motor unit is light, efficient and economic, When paired with a chain derailleur gear system, the Active Line Plus offers 270% maximum assistance with a huge 50Nm torque. Such power can easily accelerate the Life S in the city environment to the 25 km per hour allowed by pedelec regulation. This new Bosch motor is much quieter than previous iterations and has noticeably less resistance when it’s not operating. The latter facilitates riding the bike without motor assist, as in the case when the battery is completely discharged. Provided the user pays attention to level of charge, the risk of the battery going dead is miniscule thanks to the large capacity 500Wh included in the Life S.

The Shimano Acera 8-speed derailleur system may seem rudimentary for such an advanced e-bike, but in practice it provides smooth shifting, when paired with the powerful electric motor, it allows the rider to tackle even the steepest city streets. The hydraulic brakes are also from the Shimano range, 180mm front and 160mm rear discs provide efficient deceleration for even heavier cyclists.
