EBH KineticNZ Max-Drive step-thru on sale. Upgrade 615 watt hour included at same pricepoint. 300 watt motor ( higher watts in hill climbs). Mid-drive NuVinci geared touring bike. This ebike has the same Max-Drive motor that won the German 24 hour race last year against 12 other Bosch teams. We have worked with Bafang motors for 13 years (Kinetic produces its own hub motors) and the quality and performance of this ebike is superlative. It has similar or better construction to Bosch but better performing and better serviced here in NZ. The Max-drive has full torque/speed and cadence sensors, full on-board diagnostics and ultra quiet, intuitive assist. All this at a value point price that should really surprise you. Our Feiwel step-thru can easily assist you into the 40 + kph speed or can be turned down to pleasurably assist you to maximum range available from ebikes today. Please see all the hi-spec items that we have built into this ebike, yet still offer you a low price. It makes us, once again, the value leader in performance ebikes, if not the cheapest.

Our KineticNZ Men’s frame comes in medium frame, adjustable for riders in a large height range. This is achieved by adjusting the stem and seat parts that effectively make the bike fit riders from 5’2″ to 6’3″. It’s an adaptable frame that you can test ride for your body/fit.

We kit is out with the NuVinci 330 step-less rear internal hub system for effortless shifting/operation and near-zero drag when not in assist mode. If you haven’t tried the step-less NuVinci hub, you are in for a surprise, as it is the most remarkable advance in bike gearing in our generation. It offers and infinite ratio of gearing and shifting can be done from a standstill or while riding. The chain cannot fall off and there is little maintenance; remarkable. You will never want a derailleur bike again.

With our bike package, you get name-brand puncture resistant tyres (with reflective band, hi-quality head/tail LED lighting, a 25 kg rated heavy-duty rear carrier, double wall alloy rims and cargo bike stainless spokes, sealed bearings, and quality hydraulic brakes.

Our Warranty is six years on the frame and two years on everything else on the bike.

From the beautifully sculpted hydro-formed alloy frames (red or blue stocked), to the industry leading gearing system, this is a bike you can easily learn to ride and enjoy for decades. Try one before you spend much more for less value in a mid-drive ebike. Demo rides are available at Kinetic dealers Nationwide. We are running a promo that gives you a second battery (for touring range) at half price. Imagine 26 amp hours of biking reserve!

  1. 5 out of 5


    At this year’s race came to a total of 13 4-team. Including a Team in France, Italy and Luxembourg. Due to a storm warning of the start had to be postponed twice. Team Bafang entered as the only team without a Bosch engine, instead using the new innovative Max Drive System. After starting the French team went straight ahead and built this out until nightfall on 10 minutes. In the darkness, then came our team riders round closer to round. Shortly after midnight, the Team went for the first time in the lead. This was not even issued. Risks was on the legendary Nordschleife of the Nürburgring with more than 500 meters above sea level! Then there was a 500m long steep section with 27% gradient. A round length was 24km. After that has been changed. The Max Drive System was this challenge with flying colors. The engine was outstanding with his by zugsstarken engine. We did not have a technical defect.

    This is a great bike with everything I’ve always wanted – hub gears for low maintenance, and now a mid motor for my aging knees! The step-less gearing works very smoothly – just pause slightly when changing, just like my old Sturmey Archer, and it has an endless range of ratios from pretty high to really low.

    The motor works in torque mode so that it assists your efforts instead of you assisting the bike’s. All the info is displayed on a well-positioned good-sized screen – illuminated when you switch the lights on (which are very effective).

    This feels like a well made and thoughtfully designed product that’s also a great looker – I’ve had lots of compliments on the blue paintwork. Well done Jace for making this package available to NZ cyclists!
