Hybrid Electric Mountain Bikes

Now Trip Advisors #1 Rated Cycling Activity in Queenstown!
Take Yourself on an Unforgettable Bike Adventure



How they work:

We have eBikes made by Moustache Bikes in France. These are the world’s most reliable, efficient and easy to ride bikes available.

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.  The result is a bike that is extremely simple and fun to ride.


Never been Mountain biking?

If you always thought mountain biking was a little too challenging but something that tickled your interest,  our very capable electric mountain bikes will have you smiling as you breeze up and down the beautiful Queenstown trails.


Going Dutch:

We also have a step-through model with a more upright riding position which for many people is “user-friendly”, everyone loves riding these classics especially with the Bosch system on board.

How Far?

Your battery will most likely take you between 30 to 60 kilometres depending on your own effort. The display on the handlebars will show you exactly how much battery you have left. Check your map and stop in at one of our charge partners for lunch or a coffee while you and your battery recharge.


How fast?

Maximum speed is set at 27kph, this top speed has the safety of you and other trail users in mind, we don’t expect you will reach maximum speed very often. If it’s thrill-seeking you are after, we recommend bungy-jumping off the Kawerau Bridge at AJ Hackett bungy. They are one of our battery recharge points and have an excellent cafe at one of the most scenic and entertaining spots on the trail.

Go with the family

We offer family packages, so please contact us with your requirements. We have accessories such as half bikes, and toddler trailers.  For the 8-12 yo rider, we have the ingenius Bicycle Bungee, which allows the younger rider to have their own bike very gently towed along by the parent, it works very well indeed, check out this video to see more. advanced booking recommended.

Queenstown and its surrounds are a fantastic destination for both domestic and international visitors, this is already well known. However ebikes are the new frontier for enjoying the breath-taking scenery and natural wonders of this region, especially for those people who may not have previously experienced its full range of opportunities because they didn’t consider themselves the outdoors-type.

Thanks to the Queenstown Trails Trust who are integral in developing these exceptional trails, visitors never need hit the road or get in a car to experience the breathtaking sights, sounds and mountainous air of this region.

E-bikes represent a clean and quiet way to get about that is addictively fun and with local electricity generation from hydro and wind, our eBikes are literally powered by the wind, rain and you!

Get on your bike and charge about – it’s the new way to get the quintessential Queenstown experience.”
