Our 700 mm wheel Torq Alfine touring/commuting e-bikes are in stock for immediate free delivery to any NZ location. They are designed for world touring, and handle the tough NZ conditons. This has the same motor/battery combination that won the 2015 Sun Trip ebike 7000 kilometer race; beating the 2nd place Bosch system by two days!
Please note that the Torq is priced with Shimano Alfine brakes and Alfine internal rear hub. It also sports the 800 lumen Roxim headlight.
Torqs have been ridden across every continent (except Antarctica!) over their 12 years of product development. Torqs are the most suitable bike for touring in the world today. A group of Torqs just crossed Australia with no support vehicle. They have gone hundreds of times across Europe, the Silk road, across Africa, America, Canada and NZ. No other electric bike has chewed up so many miles and earned more praise from the pundits. Torqs have won the Tour de Prestigne electric bike race three times and were bike of the year in Cycle Magazine.
Torq Alfines also make excellent commuter bikes. With their Shimano Alfine 8 speed internal hub and Alfine hydraulic brakes, they are premium components from name brand components. The headlight installed on the bike is our 800 lumen blaster that makes night riding really illuminating! Throttle override lets you zoom away starting uphill or across a street while five levels of pedal assist give you a precise riding experience.
Because the 700 mm wheel has a bigger diameter, the Torqs are faster on the flat than our other e-bikes. They have the grunt to climb hills, but they carry you without pedaling about 36 kph on the flat. that is a great combination of hill climbing grunt and speed. See for yourself at any of our retail shops.
We stock Torqs in red, black or green.
$70 of free set up time by a bike mechanic and free delivery are included with this bike price.
Note:Torqs are available NuVinci 380 hubs and/or titanium frame on special order.
