What about New Zealand made eBikes?

Some brands present themselves as New Zealand made eBikes. This is a nice idea but these bikes are at best ‘designed’ in New Zealand. The majority of these bikes are made in China.

Why does eBike Studio choose Moustache and Benno Bikes?

We’ve chosen to partner with international brands such as Moustache and Benno Bikes. Here are a couple of reasons why:

  1. Moustache and Benno are industry leaders in the eBike market. Moustache Bikes were early adopters of eBike technology. Consequently, their designs are well ahead of brands just entering the market. Benno bikes are similarly cutting edge. Their designs are reinventing what a utility bike is capable of.
  2. Both of our brands use Bosch eBike systems. Bosch have the best product on the market. Their systems are efficient and intuitive. Most ‘New Zealand made eBikes’ are using far less reputable systems. Many of these bikes will end up in landfill sooner rather than later.

Sustainability:

Moustache and Benno are committed to creating high quality and durable eBikes. If you’re considering an unknown brand at a lower cost we encourage you to think about whether a small saving will be worth it in the long run.

We think this is particularly important if you’re going to be using your bike regularly (which we’re sure you will be!). When you purchase a Moustache or a Benno you know you’re getting a quality product that will last many years.

Below is a video containing Alexa Forbes, a Queenstown local who rides her Moustache eBike year round. Alexa was recently elected as a councillor on the Otago Regional Council. We share her passion for caring for our beautiful environment. Alexa has virtually eliminated her travel by car. She can rely on her quality Moustache eBike to enjoy riding and lower her impact on the planet at the same time.
