Our Mountain Bikes and E-Bikes

If you're going to have a great riding experience then you need to have a great bike to ride. While you are welcome to bring your own bike, we have a fleet of superb bikes specifically chosen for the Queenstown Trails with an internal hub and front suspension.

These bikes have been selected based on our years of experience working on the Queenstown Trails where it is clear we needed a totally reliable, comfortable and easy to use bike, plus access to comfortable gel seats as well! 

To this we have added virtually bullet proof tyres, so we expect flat tyres will be a thing of the past. We also have some low-rise frame bikes for those that want an easier step through access when getting on or off your bike - just let us know if this option is what you're after. We also have a range of electric bikes available. Your bike also has a drink bottle cage and a helmet is included in your rental. Our Men's bikes come in 4 sizes, our Women's bikes in three sizes and our step through cruisers in three sizes at time of booking we request your heights to allocate the correct bikes.

Bike Sizing

It's important to choose the correct size bike! When booking your bike rental, we request your height, this allows us to fit you to the correct frame size. When you arrive to pick up your bike we can assist you to make some minor adjustments if desired, to ensure a good fit is achieved. If however, a different size bike is required, then this can be changed on the day.
