The “Vorradler” S3 E Pinion Low Step combines robust high performance, – low maintenance parts and sporty design on a package built to the highest quality standards with a low step entry frame. This bike has one purpose, comfortable entry and worry-free pure riding pleasure. Unique to this handcrafted bike is the elegant low step entry frame which despite the added convenience and comfort to you, still offers a super high strength design with superiour rigidity.
Our frames are unique in both design and quality. All frames are made of super light weight aerospace grade 7000 series Aluminium and are hand-welded in Europe to the highest quality standards. Sanded off welding seems give a smooth finish to the frame. A high quality frame not only looks good but it feels good too, it doesn’t matter under which circumstances. The frame in our S3 E Pinion Low Step does not bend or twist under load allowing for a safer and longer lasting bike. In fact we are so certain of the quality of our frames that we give you a massive 10 years of Warranty on the frame under normal riding conditions.
The S3 E Low Step is fitted with a virtually silent and maintenance free rear hub Motor offering you a more dynamic ride, stronger acceleration and smooth assistance right where you need it, in the wheel. This removed the forces from your Chain or Belt Drive, making these vital components last longer and in turn you having more fun on your bike. As a bonus, when you are riding downhill you can manually choose to enter energy recovery mode, making your motor turn into a silent generator to feed energy back into your battery giving you a higher range and making your hydraulic disc brakes last longer! To take the riding experience to a new level you now have an integrated, designed, developed and manufactured in Germany, Pinion gearbox and American Gates belt drive. All gears are capsuled and therefore no longer exposed to dirt and water, meaning you dont have to worry about exposed parts getting damaged or about meticulous cleaning. The belt Drive is rated for a massive 10,000km by its manufacturer in every weather before needing replacement, but we have found it to last even longer!
One of the core components of an electric bike is the battery. The battery is designed and manufactured by Germany’s leading battery companies, offering you 446Wh in a small package, seamlessly integrated into the rear carry rack. It is safely attached to your bike with an integrated lock letting you remove and secure it with ease.

Silent, powerful drive
The rear-wheel drive system supports you with strong acceleration, high elasticity, quiet operation and plenty of power to spare. With 250W nominal power (peak power of about 750W) and 40Nm of torque, the motor sets the benchmark for electric motors. The power is applied directly to the hub – without detours. Thanks to a torque sensor, you always get the support that you need.
The beauty: the motor is very quiet. At 18-25dB it is less noisy than most quiet bedrooms at night. Energy recovery and brake conservation is possible whenever you go downhill: in Formula 1, this is known as KERS and is only possible with rear hub motors. The motor and torque sensor are protected in a sturdy bolted and waterproof aluminium casing. The motor is almost maintenance free and neither dust nor moisture can penetrate its shell.
Low-maintenance High-performance Gearbox
The Pinion technology is based on a helical gear design. High-precision gear-shifts similar to sophisticated automotive gearboxes. Durable, dependable, no-wear and no need for adjustments, the Pinion gearbox will last the entire lifetime of your bike. Centrally integrated into the frame and protected by an enclosed casing, it’s the definition of forward-looking bicycle drive technology.
No overlapping gears. The Pinion gearbox does not suffer from bad efficiency or increased chain wear either. Furthermore, it can reach a gear range of over 630% – you’ll always have the right gear available in every situation.
For our S3 E we use energy dense high performance battery cells from Panasonic fitted with high quality made in Germany electronics and a durable case. For you this translates to no memory effect, high lifespan and a lot of fun! Charging is done by the magnetic plug on the side of the battery which can be performed while the battery is installed or after you have removed it from your bike with the integrated locking system.
Tips and tricks to our batteries can be found in our FAQ’s or in the user manual to you bike.
