The Raleigh Sprite iE is a comfortable neighborhood style electric bike with smaller wheels to lower the frame and slightly wider tires to improve comfort and stability. Available in four frame sizes and two styles (high-step and step-thru), the paint jobs are classy and the rear rack, front fork, and chain cover match. Simple compact display panel is easy to understand and use at first blush but offers some fancy readouts like range, has walk mode, offers Mini-USB charging, and works with an optional boost button. The motor is powerful and well placed but not as responsive or efficient because it just measures cadence, this is good for people who don’t want to push hard to keep the bike moving. I personally feel that the Raleigh Sprite iE models would be good for older or senior riders who just want to relax and cruise around town but want something more reliable too.
