At Waitomo Ebikes, we follow in the footsteps of our Tipuna (ancestor), respecting te Taiao (our natural world) through the spirit of Manaakitanga, Kaitiakitanga, and Kotahitanga.

Manaakitanga

Manaakitanga is the Māori concept of hospitality and generosity. We believe that it is important to welcome our guests with open arms and make them feel comfortable and at home.

Kaitiakitanga

Kaitaikitanga is the Māori concept of guardianship. We believe that it is our responsibility to care for the land and the environment. We've started this hīkoi (journey) with e-bikes, and over time will have EV transport and solar power on our building. Our aim is take care of and to minimise our impact on Te Taiao - Our Natural World

Kotahitanga

Kotahitanga is the Māori concept of togetherness. We believe that it is important to work together with others to achieve common goals. We collaborate with local businesses and organisations for the benefit of all in the Waitomo region.

At Waitomo Ebikes, we understand that adventure is personal, which is why we adapt to your preferred pace. Get ready to traverse the awe-inspiring landscapes of Aotearoa-New Zealand, venturing into uncharted territories that few get to experience.

OUR EBIKES

with your comfort and convenience in mind

Waitomo Ebikes takes pride in working with our e-bike provider, Hybrid Bikes, a reputable e-bike designer based in Nelson, New Zealand, to provide you with exceptional electric bikes for your riding pleasure.

These bikes are thoughtfully designed, boasting carbon fiber frames for lightness, durability and performance.

EBIKE OVERVIEW

what makes our ebike different?

Frame - Carbon Fibre

Carbon fibre is two times stronger than the alloy used in premium bike frames, and at a fraction of the weight. E-Bikes don’t have to be heavy and hard to handle.

Waitomo Ebike’s carbon fibre frames make them a joy to ride and manage, even for petite riders or if the battery is flat. Your bike’s frame has strength, reduced weight and gives a responsive ride.

Motor - 300 Watt Bafang MM G33

The bike’s manufacturer has installed a clever BAFANG MM G33, 300 Watt motor for superior torque and speed with reduced weight.

Bafang is the same electric bike motor manufacturer that the world’s most famous ride sharing company has chosen for its US fleet of over 100,000 electric bikes. The reliable MM G33 produces a maximum torque of 95 N m so you don’t have to worry about going up hills anymore.

Battery - Samsung SDI

Our ebikes use SAMSUNG SDI battery technology for quick recharge and a range of up to 150km* (*The maximum range of up to 150km depends on a variety of factors including hills, terrain, statue of rider, selection of motor assist levels, headwind and N m selection of the motor). The SDI cells are secured in a rigid cage. This standard feature on our E-Bikes provides safety and security by keeping the cells isolated so they will not short circuit. Increased reliability, short recharge times and best-in-class range means you can spend more time out there.

Controller

Our electric bikes utilise intuitive Intelligent Controllers and premium, large format, LCD screens to maximize your comfort.

The Intelligent Controller provides five pedal assist levels and is conveniently mounted on the handlebars. It also features a unique ‘Walk Assist’ function so no pushing is required. The auto light function makes night riding safer. The Intelligent Controller and large format LCD screen makes controlling your bike simple.

High Spec Components

Only premium components are used on Waitomo Ebikes, giving you performance and reliability.

Tektro Hydraulic brakes, Suntour fork, along with Shimano Deore gears and derailleurs are used. These rugged components have a proven track record and are readily available from quality cycle mechanics, allowing you to relax and enjoy the ride.

With your comfort and convenience in mind, our ebikes feature a low step-through configuration, eliminating the need to swing your leg over the frame. The wider seat is equipped with an upgraded memory foam cushion, ensuring an extra level of comfort during your ride. Additionally, each bike is equipped with a bike stand and a rear carrier rack, allowing you to easily attach a bike bag or backpack for carrying your belongings. To shield you from any elements, a rear fender is included, minimizing splashes from below, while a front flex fender helps reduce splashback, such as mud or water, as you ride.

The tires on our ebikes strike the perfect balance between versatility and performance. They are designed to be smooth enough for comfortable rides on sealed roads, while also providing sufficient grip with their knobbly tread pattern for adventurous journeys on gravel roads and trails. Whether you’re exploring rugged landscapes or cruising through country streets, our ebike tires will adapt to various terrains.

One of the key advantages of the Hybrid bikes is their impressive battery range, with a capacity of up to 150km*. We’ve tested the range here at Waitomo Ebikes over a variety of terrain and know that we can easily get 70km from the battery. It all comes down to how you ride and use the gearing system to your advantage to help extend battery life.

At Waitomo Ebikes, we prioritise your comfort, safety, and enjoyment throughout your entire riding experience. By working with Hybrid Bikes and offering these high-quality, New Zealand-designed ebikes with exceptional features, we aim to provide you with a remarkable and unforgettable journey through the breathtaking landscapes of Te Rohe Potae – The King Country.
