BionX E-bike Systems


Arrow Bikes is the New Zealand Dealer for BionX e-bike systems.

We began selling BionX e-bike systems in August 2013. There were two main reasons behind this decision.

First and foremost, as a company that was concerned about clean energy and sustainability, we wanted to encourage people to ride their bikes rather than drive their cars. However, we understood that this was not always practical, especially when commuting to work or travelling longer distances. Electric bikes solved this issue and offered a cleaner way for people to get around without resorting to jumping in their cars.

Secondly, we recognised the fact that many people wanted to ride the stunning trails of New Zealand but were not physically able to do this. Some of our customers were recovering from injury, others were elderly and some were just not quite fit enough yet. Electric bikes solved all of these issues, as the different levels of pedal assist allowed people to ride whilst exerting only as much effort as they wanted to.

Once we had decided that we wanted to offer electric bikes, the next step was decide what brand we would offer. There were a number of options out there ranging from full electric bikes to electric kits that could be fitted onto an existing bike. However, once we began researching the options, our decision became clear.

BionX e-bike systems offer the best option available as far as we are concerned.

- They have a fantastic sleek design

- They come in a number of different battery sizes to suit needs and budget

- They offer both frame and pannier mounted battery options which means they can be fitted to almost any hardtail bike

- Their battery range is one of the best out there

- They come with a throttle and a regenerative mode

- They are one of the most well-respected e-bike brands in the world.

- Because they are a kit, customers have the freedom to choose exactly what bike they would like the kit to be fitted to. 

So, for a company such as Arrow Bikes that prides itself on offering the best brands and providing the best service, there was just no other option.

For those keen to try out one of these E-bike systems, we have a demo bike in store. Please book in advance to avoid disappointment.

About BionX

BionX is on a mission to revolutionize the way people move. It's award-winning electric drive system is answering a growing worldwide demand for alternative transportation solutions that enable environmental sustainability and a higher quality of life.

After BionX launched into the premium electric bicycle market in 2008, the brand quickly became synonymous with technological innovation and product quality.


BionX Technology

BionX e-bike systems make it easy for you to turn nearly any bicycle into a powerful and efficient electric bike.

BionX e-bike technology is the most intuitive and easy-to-use in the world. Adding only a few Kg’s to your bicycle, the BionX system works seamlessly with you as you pedal. The control processor continuously analyzes your torque input and feeds that information to the motor, which applies electric assist in proportion to how hard you are pedaling. The harder you pedal, the more torque the system senses, and the more electric assist you get. The power is seamlessly applied and never distracting, so you can just enjoy the ride.


BionX Battery Technology

BionX offers a variety of different battery options to suit almost any style of bicycle. Choose from the sporty downtube range or the practical and fully-integrated rear rack style.

BionX Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) batteries offer you the electric boost you need when you need it, while still giving you all of the exercise benefits of a bicycle. A single battery charge can give you up to 105km (65 mi.) of assisted riding, and the portable, compact power supply is great for quick recharges on the go. All BionX batteries are lightweight and can be installed and removed in a matter of seconds, so you can recharge inside at night, or in the office in the middle of the day.


BionX Motor Technology

BionX motors offer you powerful proportional electric assist in any situation, whether it’s a commute across town in the morning, or a weekend ride through the countryside. But did you know they can also act as a generator to help recharge your battery and boost your range?

All BionX systems come with Regenerative Braking, so when you squeeze your bike’s brake lever, energy is sent back to the Li-Ion batteries, helping them recharge. And if you are traveling down a steep hill and want some extra braking, or want a greater workout as you pedal, switch the BionX system into one of the four Generate Mode levels. You’ll feel resistance, and even more energy is returned to the battery pack.


BionX Console Technology

The intelligent, multifunctional, and easy-to-read BionX control console is the brains of the BionX e-bike system, and lets you take control of your ride. It displays such functions as speed, assist level, battery life, trip distance, and more.  With a bright LCD screen you’ll be able to view your stats day or night, rain or shine.

Remote Throttle

The throttle is designed to give you a boost of power if you ever feel like cruising along without pedaling. Just press the button and go! As a safety feature, the throttle cannot be activated while the bike is standing still. You can also use the + and – buttons on the throttle to control the system’s four levels of electric assist.


The Beauty of BionX

BionX gives you a unique sensation and the freedom to choose how far you wish to ride. With it's intelligent electric drive systems, you can travel farther with less physical energy.  If you feel ambitious, you can also increase your workout level with generate mode.  It's products offer complete flexibility for people with various physical conditions ranging from athlete to leisure rider. Whether you’re travelling in pairs or in a group, BionX can level out the playing field.  Whether you are looking for an e-bike for commuting and easy riding or for a system that can offer you high performance on or off-road for those challenging hills, you will enjoy the feeling of a BionX electric bicycle.
