About Our Wonderful Hybrid E-Bikes

We get you out there and enjoying the outdoors with Hybrid E-Bikes

HYBRID Bikes started with a vision to design superior electric bikes for adventurous and urban Kiwis.

We’re 100% New Zealand owned and operated. Based in Nelson – the gateway to some of the best cycling trails and mountain biking tracks in New Zealand. You can get a HYBRID Bike wherever you are in New Zealand – view our list of agents here.

HYBRID E-bikes are designed and built in New Zealand to be versatile and flexible so they can handle a range of New Zealand riding conditions. Our e-bikes are fast and nimble on flat city streets but the lighter carbon fibre frame and powerful motor mean they are far superior to other similar e-bikes on hills where performance is critical.



We believe we’ve created the perfect all-rounder bike – great for commuting to work, meandering on a winery tour, or handling hilly trails effortlessly.

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. Our unique E-Bike frame design and carbon fibre manufacturing processes have made lightweight carbon fibre E-bikes an affordable reality for you.

Your HYBRID E-Bike is hand-built by our team with careful attention to detail just for you. Talk to us about designing your ultimate riding experience with the perfect riding position for optimal comfort and the accessories you need to make your adventure safe and easy.

I never thought I would enjoy riding an e-bike that much but I have to say that when you try it you fall in love with it. I wouldn’t want to go back to a regular bike for city biking and commuting.

“We couldn’t have asked for better service from Frank and Jim at HYBRID bikes. They really looked after us. We feel like we are in very capable hands, as we can trust in their on-going interest and passion for these bikes.”

Having an E-bike has enabled me to explore parts of our local area that previously would not have been possible. The Hybrid bike is easy and enjoyable to ride and has been an excellent purchase. In the six months I’ve had mine I’ve done nearly 3000kms and so I feel very able to recommend Hybrid bikes. The back up service is second to none and I fully expect to be riding mine for many years to come.
