We support the biking community through events, trail building, rides, seminars and athlete support. Our friendly, helpful staff all ride, from the commuter, the road rider, trail, downhill and BMX. We all have one thing in common, we love bikes and want to help you enjoy them as much as possible.
Call in and meet us, get some advice and maybe take a bike for a spin. We have exceptional gear to offer and want to help you get the most out of your bike.
We are a group of passionate cyclists and skilled individuals. Professional, energetic and engaged in the community, we're happy to share our bike passion with the people of Canterbury. Independently owned, we've been selling and servicing bikes and gear since 2000.
Latest from the blog.
The all-new Turbo Kenevo is designed to rip down the hill, with 180mm of travel and aggressive geometry, and quickly get you to the top for another lap. More power, more trails. No lifts or shuttle required.
The 2020 Turbo Levo range is now available and looking really good. They'll continue on the same platform and motor as 2019, which was completely redesigned and launched in September 2018, but with a few spec changes here and there for 2020.
We're on the YouTubes.
