One little known fact about ebikes is there are recognized experts that lead tech development. These leaders do not advertise on TradeMe, needless to say, and you wont get the quality you want on TradeMe type vendors. While there are many copy-cat companies that follow along and make products that look similar to our e-bikes, take a look at our credentials and our 14 year history in New Zealand.
Kinetic ebikes were Cycling Magazines ‘Bike of the Year’ ; three time winner of the Tour De Presteigne; winner of the Sun Trip 2016 Race across Europe. In that race, we beat the German brands by two whole days! We also won the Cargo ebike races in Speci, Germany for both 2015 and 2016. Our V3 motor and programmable controller has won every Council fleet purchase in NZ and both NZ Transport Agencies use our ebikes in their regional fleets. NZ Post uses the internal planetary geared motors with internal rear gearing, just like our Sprint, Streed, Torq and Cadence models and we still lead the industry in intuitive operation. Please allow us to impress you with a test ride.

Kinetic ebikes are designed by two of the world leading experts in e-bike technology. The industry leading electronics are designed by Justin Limere from Vancouver. His lab has created much of the leading tech for ebikes and has destruction tested thousands of motors and controllers to ascertain the best set up for these critical modules. His labs research has created the leading ebike electronics and redundant durability is the result for our Kinetic Brand. He is on permanent contract with Kinetic for quality control systems in electronic component manufacture.

Kinetic e-bike frame design is done by W.W. Ching. Ching has personally ridden his ebike designs across Africa, across Australia, the full length of the Silk Road in China and major treks in Europe as well. Ching’s ebike awards include the races won and the world recognition for his developments. He speaks widely on the subject of electric transportation. He is the real-deal e-bike expert.

Together, these two experts lead the design and field of ebike development. What will they create next?

Our retail/service centers are located in 25 real bike and ebike shops around New Zealand. We are bike enthusiasts, and we all ride what we promote and promote what we ride. We know electric bikes are practical, comfortable solutions to personal transportation, and we lovingly offer them to you to add to your lifestyle, as they have added to ours. We like to get bike exercise, but we don’t want to arrive at a meeting or a party in a sweat. We guarantee what we sell, and we mean it. That’s why we distribute the KineticNZ line of products. We service what we sell, and sell e-bikes that need little service. Join us for a future of energy and monetary thriftiness. The future is electric. We make it easy for you.
