How they Work
We have one of the world’s most reliable, efficient and easy-to-ride electric bikes available and we're conveniently located right on the Queenstown Cycle Trail.
They feature the clever Bosch eBike system which allows you to power along with as much or as little effort as you wish. Just apply any amount of pressure to the pedals and the small motor promptly starts assisting you up hills and all-about and stops assisting the split second you stop pedalling (you can set the mode depending on terrain and how much or little pedalling you want to do.) The result is a bike that is simple and fun to ride, and a family group where everyone can stay together!
