    The undeniable benefits of these amazing bikes has driven a surge in popularity. Advances in battery technology have meant faster, smaller, more powerful units; while the motors have gotten smoother and more discrete.

    All that aside - as it becomes clear from the first pedal stroke - electric mountain bikes are made for fun.

    The E-Trail 1.0 is a versatile cross-country/trail bike that is perfect for all types of off-road riding. Whether you want to explore the country by fire trail or blast some singletrack, the E-Trail will keep you moving.

    The E-trail 1.0 electric mountain bike features a frame that is a lightweight double-butted 6061 hydroformed alloy with versatile trail geometry. Internal cabling keeps the wires tucked away and safe. A Suntour XCM 100mm travel suspension fork with hydraulic lock out gives smooth control over broken ground and enough bounce to soak up the hits.

    Powering the ebike is a light and unobtrusive Bafang 250 watt electric motor positioned in the rear hub. This keeps the centre of gravity low - for stable handling when descending on fast trails and when navigating technical climbs. The torque of the rear hub electric motor coupled with the Shimano 7 speed drivetrain will give you all the range you need for riding the full hill.

    The E-Trail 1 is powered by a high capacity and fast charging 36 volt 10.4 amp hour battery pack, internally mounted into the downtube of the frame. This elegant design really lets you feel the bike when riding.

    Choose your level up to 25km per hour on the handlebar mounted display unit, and power through up to 70 kilometres of assisted riding on a single charge.

    Tektro mechanical disc brakes give reliable stopping power and control. These well priced discs perform well in the mud and are easy for riders to maintain.

    Running on Alex MD17 double wall alloy rims and Kenda 27.5 x 2.35” tyres, this electric bike is ready to go.

    Key Features: 

    • Custom hydroformed alloy frame with DIB and internal wiring/cabling for a sleek finish.
    • Powerful Bafang 250W rear hub drive motor powered by a10.4AH battery for fast charging performance and up to 70km range on a single charge.
    • Suntour XCM HLO suspension fork with 100mm travel and hydraulic lock out for comfort and control on the trail and efficiency on the climbs.
    • Tektro mechanical disc brakes for stopping power and modulation control in the dirt and in the wet.
    • Shimano M310 7-speed gearing, shifters and derailleur.
    • Kenda K1153 27.5 x 2.35 tyres.

    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.

      Very good for price.

      Only had for a few weeks so can’t talk to reliability long term. But for $1100 you get great value: stylish, smooth and fun to ride. This was a replacement for my Schwinn Voador that was stolen and prefer the Reid more.

      E-Trail 1.0 eBike Charcoal

      Just love it, have not ridden a bike for maybe 20 years or close to it.

      Used to do the Care Argus Cycle race in Cape Town. Have never ridden an E bike before, stunned with how it helps, yet makes sure you actually do some work whilst riding.

      At 70 Plus I need the extra help occasionally and this does the job perfectly .

      Big shout out to the Balcatta store in WA and to Jasper who helped with all the instructions and talked me through operation, also assisted with all the little extras, Helmet, lights, bike cover etc, and then assisted into loading into the Car.

      Many tks very professional. So sorry to hear that today the store is closing down. Sad to see for such a great product
