Frequently Asked Questions
How do e-bikes work?
E-bikes are bicycles that utilise electric battery-powered assistance as needed. This means you can pedal as usual, without any assistance, on flat areas but then engage the extra power of the battery to give you a boost when you wish to go up hill, or just enjoy cruising without quite so much leg power. To recharge your e-bike battery, it simply needs to be plugged into mains power.
How fast are e-bikes?
The legal power output for an e-bike used on the road in New Zealand is 300 watts. This provides powered assistance of up to 32km/hr. Some e-bikes can go faster than this, but they must then be registered for use on public roads.
How far do e-bikes go?
The distance you can travel on one full charge of your e-bike will depend on a number of factors, including:
- the size of your battery
- how much you pedal
- your weight
- the terrain - how flat or hilly it is
Which is better, a scooter or an e-bike?
Electric scooters and e-bikes each have their pros and cons, so which one is best for you will depend on a few factors. Here are three key considerations to think about when deciding which set of wheels is the best fit for your adventures:
- Price: A bike is generally more expensive, especially high-end e-bikes and mountain bikes. If you’re on a tight budget, a scooter could be a good option.
- Weight: Generally, a bike is going to weigh more and take up more room than a scooter, so consider how you’ll transport your wheels.
- Setting: Do you need your wheels to get you from home to work, or through thick traffic? If so, a scooter could be a better option. Or are you more about exploring the countryside and going off the beaten track? In this case a bike would be a better choice.
