In New Zealand, the legal power output for a road-going electric bike is 300 watts. We mainly carry Shimano and Bosch Electric Mid drive systems, which usually provide assistance up to 32km/h. However, some of the models from Benno and Riese & Müllercan also get up 45km/h before the speed cuts off.
There are systems available that can go much faster, but the bicycle must be registered to go on public roads. We believe electric bikes should make the ride more enjoyable but not necessarily more exciting. If you are looking for a high power unit to take off-road we can point you in the right direction.
