Electric Bike technology is moving quickly, so we’ve designed this eBike from the ground up to take advantage of the latest developments and put a smile on your face each morning.

By pairing upgraded mid-drive electric bike technology with optimised modern commuter ebike design, our versatile new Blacktop 2.0 Step-Through MY24 eBike offers a refined ride to make getting around the city even easier and more fun!

This is a stylish and 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.

Powering the Blacktop 2.0 Step-Through MY24 is the latest Ananda M81 electric mid-drive. This advance gives the rider a more natural-feeling control over acceleration from the powerful 80Nm electric motor (which delivers more than enough grunt to carry you and all your gear wherever you need to go).

Positioning the motor in the bottom bracket area is optimal for giving the rider better usage of gears and a more balanced ride quality when navigating traffic or cornering at speed.

The elegant frame-integrated battery pack is a significantly upgraded 36 volt, 11.6Ah unit (417.6Wh) that will help you cruise up to an impressive 80 kilometres+ of pedal-assisted riding on a single charge. Just choose your power level on the handlebar mounted LCD display unit and go.

Electric bikes use a battery powered motor to give you pedal-assistance up to 25km/hr (limited by Australian regulations) to help you ride further, with less effort so you can get there faster and in better shape. What you do get with a better motor though is ride quality - and the new Ananda M81 is unbeatable in this price range.

A fast bike needs good stopping power, and the Blacktop 2.0 Step-Through MY24 is fitted with 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 2.0 Step-Through MY24 is also available in a horizontal top-tube frame design for those riders who prefer this look and handling.

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 alloy Step-Through frame with internal cabling to keep everything neat and safe.
  • Powered by a new natural-feel Ananda M81 mid-drive motor with impressive 80nm torque.
  • Frame-integrated 11.6Ah battery pack (417.6 Wh) to travel up to 80km+ on a single charge.
  • Performance Nutt hydraulic disc brakes for stopping power and control in all conditions.
  • Trusted Shimano 9 speed Alivio 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.

    I love this bike!

    I love everything about this bike. It is my main form of transportation. I have used hub drive bikes before and find the mid drive takes my commuting to a whole new level. I live in a very hilly area and this bike goes up the steepest hill easily. The maximum distance I have done in one trip has been 26kms so far and the battery indicator is still on 4 of 5 bars. I tend to ride on pedal assist 2 or 3 out of 5 except for the big hills where I use the full range of assistance. The only thing I’m unsure of is where to put my water bottle as there is no where I can see to put a cage. With the battery out it’s light enough for me to lift into the car and upstairs. It’s a great bike at a great price.

    Reid blacktop 2.p

    It’s a great bike, and well priced. Bought it from Reid Woollongabba, and served by Deon. Great service. Such an easy, quiet bike to ride. Plenty of power for the hills. Love that the battery is removable making it lighter to lift into vehicle when transporting.
