Electric bikes don’t have to be heavy and feel like farm machinery. Carbon fibre bike frames, historically only available to high-level athletes, are super strong and light providing a superior, efficient, responsive ride. Every Tuatara Tours HYBRID E-Bike is hand-built with careful attention to detail. Carbon fibre is two times stronger than the alloy used in premium bike frames, and at a fraction of the weight. E-Bikes don’t have to be heavy and hard to handle. The carbon fibre frames make them a joy to ride and manage, even for petite riders. With this manufacturing process you now get superior strength, reduced weight and a responsive ride. High modulus carbon fibre makes for a super-light frame to which is added a high-performance motor and high-spec components to create an E-Bike for more adventurous and comfortable trail riding.
MOTOR — 300 WATT BAFANG MM G33
BATTERY — SAMSUNG SDI
HYBRID E-Bikes use SAMSUNG SDI battery technology for quick recharge and a range of up to 100km.
The SDI cells are secured in a rigid cage. This standard feature on all HYBRID E-Bikes provides safety and security by keeping the cells isolated so they will not short circuit. Most bike brands use a simple film wrap to isolate the cells. Increased reliability, short recharge times and best-in-class range means you can spend more time out there.
HIGH SPEC COMPONENTS
Only premium components are used on HYBRID E-Bikes, giving you performance and reliability. Shimano Hydraulic brakes, RST forks, along with Shimano Deore gears and derailleurs. These rugged components have a proven track record allowing you to relax and enjoy the ride.
