From the second we set eyes on the COBOC we were impressed. At only 13.7Kg  it was hard to believe it was electric. On our first test ride down Portobello Road we were sold! …A truly amazing machine that makes all else look and feel agricultural and heavy.

COBOC SOHO Electric Road Bike

The stunning Coboc Soho combines technical ingenuity with head-turning beauty.

The Soho’s beautiful hand-crafted brushed aluminium frame with polished welds is complemented by lightweight silver carbon forks.  Added to this is the classical elegance of the Brooks Cambium saddle and bar tape, whilst the Continental Grand Prix Classic tyres ensure the ride is as smooth as the look.

Like its brother the Ecycle, the 250w motor is seamlessly integrated into the rear hub and all electronic components, including the  battery, are discreetly concealed within the frame and provide a range of 80km on just a 2 hour charge time. All of this in a package weighing just 13.7kg.

Drop in at our Portobello Road store for a test ride ….we promise you won’t be disappointed!

Unparalleled design:

COBOC stands for timeless design enhanced by the most modern drive technology. The understated elegance of the classic frame construction combines seamlessly with intelligent power electronics and a high torque motor to deliver an agile, dynamic riding experience.

The product of an extraordinarily high level of research and development, COBOCs are all hand crafted in Germany. The electronics, battery and software have been developed by our experienced team over many years and utilise cutting edge methods of motor control and torque sensor technology that have been integrated into a single chip. Such efficiencies have enabled them to produce an electric bike with a weight of just 13.5kg (Ecycle), a level previously unseen in electric bikes.


Ride different:

The electric bike is the urban mobility of the future.  A complement to, rather than a replacement of, classic two wheeled transport.

Born out of  a passion for two wheels, a love of technology and the highest standards of design and functionality, a COBOC e-bike is unlike anything you’ve ever ridden before. Effortless motion from a light, agile design that delivers  an intuitive interaction between rider and bike.

With a design concept centred around aesthetics, function and riding pleasure our aim was to create something very special. Something highly refined. Something completely different…


Hidden power:

The 36 spoke wheels are hand built in Germany with the rear housing a 250 Watt brushless motor. Custom switchgear is hidden in a beautifully CNC machined aluminium housing which makes up the first part of the top tube. The only visible cue to the electric status of the bike are five blue LEDs flush with the tubing which indicate battery charge. Even the cabling is internal to maintain the sleek look of the machine.



Rather than using a torque sensor in the rear drop out like most other e-bikes, which need careful calibration each time the rear wheel is reinstalled, COBOC uses a high tech bottom bracket sensor. This means power delivery is not only progressive but also instantaneous and intuitive, a feeling akin to having  a constant tailwind as you ride! The whole system self-calibrates every time you recharge, meaning that battery life is maximized and from the first pedal stroke you are always guaranteed peak performance.

The battery pack consists of Panasonic cells (36V / 9.3 Ah) that are assembled on site in Germany. These lightweight batteries are performance optimized using a bespoke 4 layer circuit board and microprocessors that, combined with the torque sensor, deliver an incredible range of up to 80km.

All of our electric bikes are fully assembled, checked and road-tested by our expert staff prior to delivery.

High quality electric bikes last for many years so it’s important you get the one that’s right for you – but there are so many to chose from! Online research can help you narrow the options but by far the best way to ensure you’re making the right choice is to visit one of our branches, discuss you needs with one of our friendly experts, and test-ride one or all of the many brands and models we stock – there’s no substitute for spending time in the saddle!  Once you’ve made your choice you can ride your new e-bike away. Don’t worry if you can’t spare the time or are just too far from one of our shops, we’ll be happy to help you choose over the phone or via email and deliver your e-bike to your home at a time that best suits you.

▶ Personal Home Delivery

no brown box delivery1

If you choose this option our experienced staff will deliver your electric bike in person to your door fully assembled and tested at a pre-arranged time, and will work with you to ensure every thing is perfectly adjusted to suit your size and preferred riding style before that all-important test ride. We’ll spend time with you to make sure you’re happy with your choice and understand all its features, so be ready to put the kettle on!

After your test ride, when everything has been fine-tuned to your liking and you are comfortable with your e-bike we will fit any accessories you may have ordered – or those you might already have – a favourite old saddle perhaps, a particular bell, or pair of trusted hand-me-down panniers.

Only when we are certain you are completely confident in your e-bike choice and understand how everything works will we leave you to enjoy your new found freedom.

The cost of this personal service varies depending on your location and whether you would prefer evening or weekend delivery, please email or telephone us for an estimate.

Note: After you have inspected the bike, found it to be in good working order, and agreed that this is the right bike for you, the sale will be complete. If we have delivered in person please be sure you are happy with everything before we leave as we cannot accept returns once our delivery staff have driven away unless the e-bike can been shown to have a design or manufacturing fault. We then retain the right to determine the appropriate remedy, be that on-site repair or replacement of a part, a replacement electric bike, or full or partial refund. If the reason you decide not to accept the bike could have been established easily before you ordered it (e.g. you ordered a white bike and later decided you prefer black), we reserve the right to make reasonable charges for delivery and or any work done to the bike prior to delivery.

▶ Evening and weekend delivery:

Because few of us are at home during working hours these days, we offer the option of our personal home delivery service on Saturdays and Sundays, and evenings during the week.

The cost of this personal service varies depending on your location and whether you would prefer evening or weekend delivery, please email or telephone us for an estimate.

▶ Courier Delivery

Before being delivered via courier your e-bike will be fully assembled and road tested. Once we’re happy with all aspects of its performance we will carefully pack it in a sturdy box ready for shipping.  Please note that the pedals are removed and handlebar rotated inline with the frame for packing so these will need to be fitted and adjusted on arrival. This is simple to do but should you like reassurance we will happily talk you through the process over the phone, we can also arrange a phone-call with your local, trusted bike mechanic if you decide you would rather give the job to them.
