Description

After 12 years of exclusively distributing eZee ebikes in NZ, we have jettisoned the brand and offer a superior brand. eZee had so many problems with controllers, water migration into electronics, motor terminals and battery connections, that customer complaints were too much to bear. We frankly have better ebikes to sell and other brands have far surpassed anything that eZee can offer. We still stock the repair parts and battery replacements for eZee. We will provide those with a discount.

    I rode the Raptor up off-road to the Coppermine Saddle , a full 800 meter climb over a distance of 17 kilometers, with about half the battery to spare at the Summit. This bike makes it possible for an old guy like me to still do the significant uphill biking treks i crave, and the plush ride makes the downhill very pleasant on the body. Murray H.

    When I decided to get an e-bike, I decided to go for the most capability I could get. A full suspension MTB cost me more than a round town bike, but good to know I would have a bike that would do anything. I’ve mainly used the Raptor for round-town commuting. I’ve mounted racks front and rear for my grocery shopping, daily pannier commuting and other transport jobs. The Raptor is over-kill for this sort of work, but it is nice to know I can jump curbs, tackle Christchurch quake road potholes and take off-road short-cuts without a second thought. For commuting the road speed is good and I get to work quicker than driving during rush hour. Even after a few months, I just love getting on my Raptor and hooning around town at any opportunity. Despite being a keen cycle commuter, I used to drive most of the time due to the practical reality of turning up to meetings a sweating mess. Now I ride the Raptor everywhere.

    The overall package looks, and performs very well indeed.
    The motor feels very strong, with great low torque.
    The components seem to also be very good. Suspension seems good and the brakes excellent. The light is brilliant. I liked the adjustable stem so I could set the handlebars where I wanted them. The tires are great.
    Being 6 foot 3, I could probably benefitted from a larger frame.
    The first ride was 5 ks of uphill to the top of the Longwoods and down. Mostly forestry roads, some steep and rough sections. I easily rode up slopes I would normally have to walk. At the top, I was down to the last 20% of the battery.
    There were two other mountain bikers on the hill. I easily rode away from them uphill, and was just as quick downhill!
    I felt I was peddling too slow going up on the steeper sections; hard on ageing knees; and had to rely too much on the motor. I think I would get a longer range from the battery if I could put more into the peddling uphill, and have asked Pete about the possibility of lowering the gearing, either by changing the front chain ring from the 44 tooth to a 42 or 40. (Pete, it has 4, not 5 bolts). Another possibility is to change the lowest ring on the rear cluster.
    I commented to Jace that on three occasions the motor cut out momentarily, then instantly continued, while going uphill on moderate load. He thinks perhaps I may have accidentally activated the throttle a little. I will watch out for that.
    The handlebars feel too narrow for a mountain bike. I think better downhill steering on tricky terrain would benefit from wider bars. However I will stick with them meantime and see if I get used to them.
    Pete changed the tubes for me, and commented that the tubes provided were very thin.
    I can see that the bike will open up a lot more country to me, and the motorbike won’t get out much this summer.
    I think there is certainly an opportunity for full suspension E MTBs especially for ageing bikers who may have dicky knees and want to keep on riding!
    I will bring the bike to Pete after a few rides for a checkup of spokes etc. He is getting in a spare tube for me.
    Many thanks for a great bike.
    Regards,
    John Moffatt.

    Well where do i start

    Great climbing ability
    AMAZING Braking
    Comfortable riding position
    Great gear combination for road or climbing ability

    i took the Raptor for a gentle ride around the Coppermine saddle loop (47 km track with 850 meters of elevation gain) last weekend and it blew me away how capable climbing it was easily reaching 3rd house in just under 45mins the week before on my standard mtb was over an hour and a half,

    the bike bought a great smile to my face passing various people on many different bikes and fitness levels.

    the bike is more than Capable of riding grade 3 trails so don’t think this is only a rail trail bike .

    after riding this and a bosch equipped bike this at the price is a far better bang for buck (yes the more you spend the lighter a bike gets) but a entry/mid leveled machine like this is hard to beat, and with the option to twist the throttle and start on gnarly uphill sections is just another reason to choose this bike

    Below are the things we have changed for this rider from the factory version (Editor note- these are coming standard now)
    Wider bars and non adjustable stem (mainly for more control on tighter downhill sections
    slimmer saddle not a comfort gel style like it comes with (personal opinion)
    and a smaller front sprocket maybe down to a 40-42 t would be a great upgrade
