Our new E-Bike fleet consists of Avanti Hammer E bikes. These bikes have an internally mounted battery and motor, as well as a dropper post. It will give you that extra boost to help you tackle those trails that you mightn’t normally be able to ride on a standard bike. Don’t be fooled into thinking that using an E-Bike is cheating, because if you stop pedalling the motor will stop too. Come try this latest craze for yourself. Hardtail and Full Suspension models available.

Where’s the best place to ride in Turangi on an e-bike? Without doubt it’s the (easy to ride) Tongariro River Trail – watch the video to get an idea of the experience.
