The Street ebike is in a class by itself. Perhaps the easiest bike to ride that we carry, yet with its 20″ wheels, it is our best hill climber. The Street is ideal for urban hauling of kids, shopping, and commercial applications. This is the e-bike that repeatedly climbed up the steepest street in the world (Baldwin Street in Dunedin), to the delight of the reporters and the Dunedin Council.
The frame adapts itself to fit a wide range of body sizes from 5′” to 6’4″ and it can carry the large loads on the very strong wheel build. It’s the right bike for many people doing errands and getting around where hills and distance have stopped them from riding otherwise. The high torque motor powers the front while the rear Shimano Nexus 7 speed internal gears (like Sturmey Archer but smoother and 7 gears!) change speedily and silently in the rear wheel. This ensures an easy ride in almost any urban terrain.
This is the same Kinetic V3 motor that won the 7000km Sun Trip ebike race across Europe in 2015, beating the Bosch equipped bikes by two whole days.
Its equipped with superb components from the best suppliers in the world. Kinetic uses custom double wall wheels and German puncture resistant tyres, Scandanavian cargo strength spokes, Shimano Nexus internal gearing, Shimano “V” brakes front and Shimano Nexus roller disc brake ing the rear. Our Street has Dutch front/rear LED lights, tough polycarbonate mudguards, a cushy suspended Velo seat and a 25 kg rated alloy rear rack. A Cateye computer and AXA frame lock is also included, making it a loaded e-bike with a value price.
The Street is used in commerce and has been purchased by several NZ Councils as well. It is perhaps the most versatile ebike in the world today. This bike’s motor has the maximum power allowed and legal under NZ law but you will find it has ample torque that is on demand for your riding. Throttle overide completes the versatile system.
For work, play, and commuting, the Street does it all. Schedule a test ride today.
$70 of free set up time by a bike mechanic is included with this bike price.
