Hi Brad, l am a 87 year old and enjoying my bike during the last three years. It has been faultless, and to date, completed over 2500 km over all sorts of terrain. I conveniently carry it on the back of our campervan. The Alpine is an excellent bike, and I frequently get 100km with pedal assistant from the battery. Regards, Lew.

I really love my e-trike and its ability to handle shingle, off road and stream fording. It happily carries me up to the weather reporting, with my trusty companion in the back but also transports my art equipment and picnic supplies when needed. The trike is much admired by locals and visitors alike and can be seen on Geraldine's promotional material.

I love my trike! It is an excellent commuter vehicle from a hill on the south coast of Wellington to the CBD and back, in all weather. The luggage space is great, it is very comfortable and I can look around cycling in a more upright position. I have fitted a bike clock, a flag, and a wing mirror. I can go via the coast and up into the small streets of older suburbs, taking it all in with ease.

We purchased a Bighorn S MD and a Bighorn LS MD in December 2022. We have enjoyed 10 months of faultless cycling. Many of our friends have test ridden our bikes, resulting in two of them purchasing the same in the last month. These are strong and reliable bikes and the battery range is amazing. Great value for the money. Highly recommended.

We have just purchased two bighorn ebikes and love them. They’re sturdy, user-friendly and sooooooooo much fun. I was a fair weather biker years ago (any wind it was a No!). Now with this new toy wind is no problem and I can’t wait to bike everyday and go further afield when we get a bikerack. We had um’d and ah’d about them for 10 months and wished we hadn’t, we’ve missed months of fun. As Nike says Just Do it...you won’t regret it. Thanks, Watt Wheels very very happy with our bikes.

Watt wheels are amazing! We bought an e-trike last year. Performs fantastically! Great bike, and great tech support from Brad and his team! Great customer service!

Amazing product Watt Wheels! My mother and I bought two LS Scouts and we love riding around on our bikes. I’m addicted and want to go out everyday! I use mine for commuting and in two weeks have done over 150ks! So so happy with our purchase! If you’re thinking about getting a watt-wheels product I’m telling you right now you won’t regret it!

Absolutely love our new bikes. We wanted something that we could ride on trials and the road and Watt Wheels put together two great bikes that works for both. Superb service and very knowledgeable advice.

Brad from Watt Wheels - how do I describe him - "100% in every way with his business and personal cooperation".
I am 87 yrs and purchased a E Trike from Wat Wheels. I am unable to walk a distance hence the trike.
It is brilliant, 1yr and I have covered 2059 kms all riding on footpaths around Cambridge, over that time a motor packed a sad and immediately Brad sent a replacement front wheel & motor at his expense.
A friend of mine in the Tauranga area has purchased 2 Trikes for he & his wife on the strength of how good my one is. At this stage of my life it is better than having a mobility scooter and more suitable for carrying parcels, groceries etc in front and back baskets. Thank you WW!

Just bought a Wattwheels Big Horn for a 700km trip around the cycle trails between Bluff and around Queenstown (before lockdown). Performed flawlessly with realistic range of around 80km. Great fun.

I recently purchased a second-hand Scout e-bike. Done about 60k's so far, mostly on boardwalks and cycle tracks. After several adjustments to the seat and handlebar heights (super easy to do), it is surprisingly comfortable. Has been very sure-footed on gravel tracks. Plenty of power. I have settled on using the throttle for short power assist increases rather than upping the PAS number as it really will rocket on the higher settings. Pedals well on the flat with no PAS. I find I top out about 27kph for speed as after that have to pedal too fast but I could use the throttle. Looking forward to trying it on the beach.
Even though not purchased from them, Wattwheels have been excellent in answering a question for me and providing information.
