The Superlite has been designed and engineered by MeloYelo, and is the culmination of a great deal of research into the needs of Kiwi e-bike riders.
A segment of the market has told us that they’re happy to pay a bit more to get the lightest possible e-bike, but that it must be suitable for riding on NZ trails, up to grade 3.
The Superlite ticks all the boxes.
At 22kg it is no heavier than a carbon fibre ebike, yet 4kgs lighter than our other models.
It has the high-power/high-torque Bafang M420 motor, a 10 speed Shimano Deore gear set, velvety smooth air suspension, hydraulic brakes, and a thumb throttle that gives you power boost when you need it, once you’re above 6km/hour.
All of this in a step-through frame.
Available in sky blue or arctic silver.
