    The Blacktop 2 WSD is our feature-packed electric bike for riders who want to take charge of their daily commute; or replace the car for weekend adventures and visiting friends.

    An upgraded mid-mount motor, more powerful battery pack, improved gearing and hydraulic disc brakes promise improved performance and a more refined ride.

    Powering the Blacktop 2 WSD is the proven Ananda M80 electric mid-drive motor. Positioning the motor in the bottom bracket area is optimal for giving the rider better usage of gears and improved handling when navigating traffic or cornering at pace.

    The powerful 80 Newton Metre torque of the electric motor coupled with the Shimano 9-speed Acera gears will give you all the range you need for fast city riding or weekend touring.

    The elegant frame-integrated battery pack is a fast-charging, lightweight LG unit (36 volt, 10.4 Ah, 374.4 Wh) that will help you cruise up to an impressive 100 kilometres of pedal-assisted riding on a single charge. Just choose your power level on the handlebar mounted LCD display unit and go.

    The handlebar mounted LCD information display shows valuable information such as battery level, speed, trip distance and more.

    Electric bikes use a battery powered motor to give you pedal-assistance up to 25km/hr to help you ride further, with less effort so you can get there faster and in better shape.

    A fast bike needs good stopping power, and the Blacktop 2 WSD is fitted with upgraded Nutt hydraulic disc brakes. Hydraulics deliver more power with less lever force than other systems, which gives better modulation and control in all riding conditions.

    The Blacktop 2 WSD is also available in a regular unisex frame design. Both configurations are optimised for a fast, smooth and controlled riding experience. And as becomes clear from the first pedal stroke - these bikes are also heaps of fun!

    Key Features:

    • Hydroformed WSD alloy frame with internal cabling to keep everything neat and safe.
    • Ananda M80 mid-drive motor with impressive 80nm torque.
    • Frame-integrated LG 10.4Ah battery pack (374.4 Wh). Travel up to 100km+ on a single charge.
    • Upgraded Nutt hydraulic disc brakes for stopping power and control in all conditions.
    • Shimano 9 speed Acera / Altus gearing.
    • LCD information display shows battery level, speed, trip distance and more.

      eBikes FAQ

      Q. How far can I travel on a full charge?

      The range you can expect depends on how hard the battery is working. This will be affected by factors like the weight of the rider, how much luggage you’re carrying, tyre pressure, hills/terrain, road condition, wind and the level of assistance or power setting you use.

      We will list the distance you can expect to ride under ideal conditions in the product details section of each Electric Bike.

      As a general guide though, the range varies from around 60km per full charge for our 10.4Ah battery hub motor eBikes, up to 100-120km+ for our 14Ah Ananda mid-mount eBikes. The dual-battery system on the KADe can even cover 150km+.

      Q. How do I charge an Electric Bike and how long will it take?

      Simply plug the charger into a standard wall socket at work or when you get home. To charge the battery from 0% to 80% will take 2 hours, 100% in 4 hours. Most of the time though you’ll just need to top up rather than completely refill. Charging times are similar for Bafang and Ananda systems.

      Q. What are the benefits of a hub motor style eBike?

      For commuting and touring electric bikes designed for use on roads and paths, rear hub motors offer a more discrete, lighter and more affordable choice over a mid-mount motor design.

      Bafang are the largest rear hub eBike manufacturer in the world and growing rapidly in Europe and the US. The motor is light and unobtrusive at only 2.9 kg, recharge time is quick and the range is good. Considering how affordable these ebikes are, a new electric bike now makes a lot of sense for more people.

      Q. What are the benefits of a mid-mount motor style eBike?

      The mid-mount position offers more options in terms of gearing, smoother acceleration and lowers the centre of gravity of the bike giving a more stable ride over broken ground or when cornering. This benefit is really felt when off-road or riding at speed.

      Mid-drive motors are especially preferred by riders looking for more torque when riding (perfect for pinch climbs on a Mountain Bike). Unlike a hub-drive motor, the mid-drive motor directly drives the crank instead of the wheel. This has the benefit of multiplying power and allowing the bike to better take advantage of existing gears.

      Q. Can I ride an eBike in the rain?

      Yes, all of these units are sealed and made for all-conditions riding.

      Q. Can I switch off the motor and ride it like a normal bike?

      Yes. Remove the battery pack and it will feel very much like a normal bike.

      Q. What does 'Pedelec' mean?

      The most popular electric bike system in Australia is the pedelec (or pedal assist) system. You ride a pedelec by pedalling as normal, while the electric motor adds power to each pedal stroke - flattening out the hills and getting you up to speed with much less effort.

      Q. How much does it cost to charge an eBike?

      It depends on the battery, but as an example using a standard 418Wh battery:

      At 30c/kWh x 0.418kWh = 12.5c for a full charge. Costs are similar with the Bafang and Ananda systems.

      100km for 12.5c and a fraction of the carbon output of a car - yes, this is the future of personal transport.

      Q. How often should I service my Electric Bike?

      The same as we would recommend for any bicycle.

      We recommend your electric bike is serviced during the first 3 months of ownership as components bed in. Frequency of servicing after that depends on usage and what maintenance you choose to do yourself in terms of caring for the chain and other basic tasks. A regular rider who does not perform any maintenance may benefit from servicing every 6 months. Click here for more information on servicing.

      Q. How can I safely handle and use a Li-ion Electric Bike battery?

      Lithium Ion batteries are a powerful technology that have given us handy cordless tools and devices from mobile phones and laptops, to power drills, vacuum cleaners and now electric bikes.

      This is an increasingly common power source that is here to stay, and is safe if handled properly. Read our full safety guide here.

        So far so good

        So far I'm liking the bike I did a test ride whilst the battery is charging worked well though when I tried to use the assembly video it showed the wrong bike and there wasn't really any paper instructions and if there were it was hard to understand not much written word also I don't like that there isn't some type of plug in cover for where the battery goes if you want to ride the bike manually purposely or because the battery charge ran out but otherwise it's a good bike so far.
