The 2017 iZip Dash has arrived! Yes, we are well into 2017 but hey- thats how we do it out here in Hawaii. The Dash is no stranger to our lineup of electric bikes. In fact it has been a staple and one of our most popular speedy commuters to date. Starting back in 2015, the Dash sported a 500watt rear hub drive with mechanical brakes and did not come with any add-ons. Fast forward to 2017 and boy have things changed.
To start, the Dash was reintroduced in 2016 with a 350 watt TranzX mid-drive system. Mid drives have become more and more popular over the years with manufactures. Their benefits include a more balanced platform, standard front & rear wheels (much easier to do maintenance, flat repairs, etc.), mechanical leverage on all of the gears, improved hill climbing ability, better efficiency, & more. The voltage remains at 48, allowing the the bike to still reach speeds of up to 28mph while now having much greater climbing ability. The Dash then came standard with fenders, a sturdy rear rack, and integrated lighting. What a package!
Now in 2017 the Dash has been updated yet again. More subtle this time with improved lighting, a new color scheme, upgraded front fork (now Rock Shox) & updated drivetrain. The bike now sports a new sleek downtime battery that sits snugly inside the downtime (where as previous year models were more "bolted on"). Water bottle mounts have been included and are greatly appreciated. Perhaps the biggest change is the raw aluminum frame color which simply looks badass. Raw finishes are normally priced at a premium. However the 2017 Dash remains a great value priced at $2599.
Ah yes, the age old question. Is commuting on an electric bicycle actually safer than a regular pedal bike? The answer folks, for many people can actually be yes. Riding an electric bike for commuting purposes can many times be safer than only being propelled by human power alone. How can this be, you may ask? How can a bicycle with an electric motor actually be safer than riding along with my own two legs?
The answer lies within the heavy traffic roads of Oahu and steep elevation that many riders encounter when riding their bikes. As lovely as Oahu is, there is no denying the congested roads. For many of us commuting to work on a bicycle means avoiding dangerous traffic. To make matters worse, when climbing steep hills, the speed of a bicycle and the flow of traffic tends to spread further apart. Cars start whizzing by and making riders feel even more vulnerable.
Lets look at the big picture here. An electric bicycle can be much safer (especially for less experienced riders) for commuting as it allows them to more easily ride at the flow of traffic. No more holding up a huge line of cars when climbing hills, and maintaining 20+ mph over long distances gives riders the confidence they need to actually choose riding a bike over driving their cars. The assist also allows for faster acceleration from a stop. Again allowing riders to more easily go with the flow of traffic instead of holding up angry commuters behind the wheel.
Here at Ebikes Hawaii we believe an electric bicycle to be the ultimate car replacement. We like to think outside the 4 wheel'd box. Think about how many Ebikes could fit into one parking stall, or how much less traffic we would have on our roads if more drivers would consider riding an assist bike to work or run errands. We feel it is our personal duty to educate each and every person on the benefits of an electric bicycle and how it can help shape our future. Mahalo!
Welcome to the electric mountain bike revolution! Our pedal assisted e-mtb's by Haibike will leave you with an ear to ear smile. Powerful & efficient mid-drive system by Yamaha & Bosch provide incredible performance.
Some benefits of an electric mountain bike are:
Pedal assist - regardless of your skill level, the pedal assist system will allow you to climb hills and ride without being limited by your physical ability. Skilled riders can enter a new sport where motor assistance introduces new skill sets. Despite some nay sayers, maintaining higher speeds with an electric assisted bike on the trail isn't easy- especially at race pace!
Multi purpose - It's no secret that traffic is horrible on Oahu. Rip your Haibike on the trail then use it as a car replacement to get to work. Forget about gas, traffic, noise, insurance, etc. They are just as capable on the road as they are on the trail allowing you to cover serious distances with minimal effort.
Your health - Riding an electric assisted bike in place of driving can have serious improvements on your health. Studies have shown that the best kind of workout for your long term health is moderate sustained & consistant workouts. The pedal assist system gives you full control between zero assist and turbo model. Choose eco, or sport for a light boost.
Fun factor - An electric mountain bike will make you feel like a kid again. No longer are you restricted by your physical ability. Explore the island in a completely new way.
Ebikes Hawaii is Hawaii's exclusive Haibike dealer, offering the best of the Haibike lineup. We are also a certified Bosch service station and have extensive knowledge of the Yamaha system.
We are reaching the end of our 2016 Haibike SDURO Closeouts! Bullet proof Yamaha PW Drive system paired with Haibike's German engineering design and quality make these bikes a winner.

Some things, like a classic cruiser bicycle, never go out of style. The 7-speed Retroglide iE with step-through frame is everything you’ve always loved about cruisers — style, simplicity, comfort, value, and fun — now as an electric bike. It’s the best of both worlds: the ride you need as an adult (performs perfectly for your daily responsibilities like grocery shopping or heading to work) that makes you feel like a kid again. The 350W Currie Electro-Drive®/TranzX mid-motor system gives you plenty of power to flatten the hills, and turn headwinds into tailwinds, when you want that extra boost. With a long-range battery pack you can pedal to work and still fly around the neighborhood a couple of times afterwards, racing the sun to make it home in time for dinner.
THE STROMER ST2 RENTAL
The myth, the legend, the Stromer ST2 is HERE, and NOW available for you to try out!
We are happy to announce a special addition to our electric bike rental fleet here in Honolulu.
The latest and greatest in Electric bike technology has found its way to Oahu! Having won awards at both Eurobike and Taipei Cycle, the ST2 lives up to its Swiss built "tank-like" reputation down to the last detail. For those of you that don't know, this ebike has broken barriers in both design and technology, the first of it's kind to produce 93 miles of range, up to 28 mph of pedal-assisted speed, 750W of engine power and 35 nm of torque, all in an ebike that can cruise down any old bike lane!
We have tested this Swiss workhorse this summer, successfully riding from our Town bike shop all the way to Chinaman's Hat on just one battery. There is nothing like riding 28 mph on a bike that sends it's rider on a high-speed, exhilarating ebike experience that you must try to understand.
Its Schwalbe "BigBen tires", puncture-proof and smooth as butter, help transform this 57.3-pound rocket into a smooth, road conquering vehicle that provides a similar feeling as an amusement park ride would. Don't discount the fact that the ST2 is pedal assist, still giving it's rider some exercise and endorphins, and disavowing any claims that you might be "cheating" by riding an electric bike.
The ST2 is available for rental from our Kapahulu bike shop, check out our "RENT A BIKE!" section to get more information on pricing, availability or call our rental office at (808) 744-4886 for more information. Mahalo!
Incoming! The Juiced Ocean Current is about to make a huge splash here on Oahu. Starting at just $1499 (Hazmat Shipping fee to Hawaii included), this electric cruiser is one of the most compelling value purchases we have offered to date. Sure there are other inexpensive electric bikes on the market- however Juiced is the only one who has managed to deliver this level of quality at the sub $1500 price point.
As fate would have it, one of very first products that inspired us to begin our Ebike venture was the Juiced ODK 3 Cargo Bike (see below).
The ODK3 cargo bike was and remains to be a very unique product with incredible value. Some of you may even be familiar with this bike as Honolulu's Domino's Pizza delivery vehicle. Currently 3 locations are using the ODK as their main mode of delivering pizza!
Tora Harris (owner of Juiced Bikes and former olympic high jumper) has stuck with the value formula that worked so well with the ODK and is now building an army of quality, low priced electric bicycles for everyone to enjoy. We are currently waiting the Ocean Currents to arrive (comes in both low & high step models) and will be acting as sole disturber for Oahu and all outer Hawaiian islands!
We will also be carrying the Cross-Current, Cross-Current Air, and out of this world Hyper-Fat models in the months to come. All of these models come with modular 48v battery systems paired with 500 watt geared hub motors. Plenty of power, speed & range to replace your gas guzzling vehicle. For the enthusiasts, there are upgraded battery options available all the way up to 21 Amp hours. Yes thats right, 21 Amp hours. That means up to 100 miles distance on a single charge. Who needs a car at that point, right?
Every now and then we hear from other "hardcore" bike riders- hey, thats cheating!
Never has this idea perplexed us more. Let me preface this story by stating that in our experience, the majority of the Ebike community here in Hawaii (and also what we have seen on the mainland) are not your standard, for a lack of a better term, sport bike rider.
No ladies and gentlemen, your average Ebike rider is often times using their wonderful little machine as a TOOL. Just like hard core exercise bike riders use their bicycles as a tool to get their bodies into shape- the Ebiker smartly uses his or her Electric bicycle to efficiently get from point A to point B.
Most importantly, the indigenous Ebiker chooses the electric bike over driving a gas guzzling vehicle. Whereas often time we see the traditional cyclist riding their bike solely for exercise- and then commuting to work on their automobile- the intelligent Ebiker replaces ALL commutes with a single electric bike.
Don't get us wrong, we truly love and respect the idea of a simple light weight and efficient pedal bicycle. We are simply confused at how they are compared to and looked down upon some of those in the "hardcore community." That like using an Abacus (see here) and comparing it to someone using a calculator! Hey that machine is doing the work for you!
Perhaps we should all still be using Rickshaw's (see here) because automobiles that "do the work for us" to get from point A to point B is cheating. The point I am trying to make here is that while Ebikes are certainly something new and super cool (people always react to new things/technology in different ways) they are certainly not the "enemy."
Electric bicycles are efficient, silent, eco-friendly, and most importantly unbelievably FUN to ride. It's like CHEATING- in the best possible way. They are TOOLS that can help enhance our lives, enable riders of different skill levels to use bicycles as functional vehicles in their day to day lives (without destroying the environment).
Anyway, this rant is getting quite long. So I think we will wrap it up here. Long live the Ebike!!!
-Your friendly neighborhood Ebike enthusiast

Oahu is the gathering place for over 9 million residents and visitors each year. Oahu is full of rich and royal history, has miles of golden beaches, perfect waves, constant sunshine, tropical breezes, world-class shopping, and delectable foods you can’t get anywhere else in the world. In order to maximize your time and experience all your must-dos on Oahu, renting electric bikes is the answer!
Electric bikes are a growing trend in many cities around the world. Their ability to look like a regular bike, but ride like a high-powered scooter, makes them an instant must-try. The feeling of an Ebike shooting you up a steep hill while you are pedaling with minor effort, is unlike anything you have experienced before. Oahu has some of the worst traffic in the United States. We recommend alternatively, bike lanes, bike routes, and hidden trails and streets that will get our bike rental guests to many beautiful spots without the headache and limitations that driving on Oahu presents.
The electric bikes we carry are high end, and are of the highest quality you will find on the market today. They are advanced in both structure and electric technology, and come to our showrooms from many different countries. All our ebikes are capable of speeds up to 20 MPH, can last for up to 30 miles using one battery, and offer that warm weather, “only in Hawaii” experience visitors are looking for. Rental guests can enjoy taking in the sights, stopping at their favorite food spots, beach hopping
We are the only carrier on Oahu to proudly offer foldable Brompton bikes from London England. These are extremely compact, light-weight, one-of-a-kind, and the most portable bike you will ever see. We offer full day and weekly Brompton rentals for those looking for a non-electric rental option.
Our guests’ favorite electric bike rental is our exclusive Ebikes Hawaii in-house brand ebike, the Uno by Zen ride. This bike is so user-friendly, and powerfully equipped with a Samsung lithium battery that is hidden inside the frame. Rental guests can enjoy the three power options the Uno has to offer. Four levels of pedal assist will allow the rider to have the same “ride a regular bike” feeling with the added power of the electric motor kicking in automatically as you pedal. If riders want to be lazy and enjoy the throttle, convienently located on the handlebar, a quick twist of the wrist will activate the motor with a surge of power, and the bike will just go go go.
Years of dedicated Swiss design and engineering have led to the creation of the Stromer ST1, our prized, high performing electric powerhouse. Rental guests can enjoy the thrill of sheer power best by escaping off the grid to the tantalizing beauty of Tantulus and Round Top Drive, a paved road bike loop that climbs miles high to one of Oahu’s best scenic views of the city of Honolulu.
Rental guests who are daring enough to blaze some of the hidden bike trails that weave in and out of the hundreds of ridges and valleys on the south and eastern shores, the German bred Hai Bike XDURO electric mountain bike is just the ticket.

The wait is finally over. We are about halfway into 2016 and the majority of all Haibike SDURO models are now available! The Full-Fat Six is currently still delayed with it's front chain ring issue (dropping chains) but we have been assured by Brian Gilmore of Haibike USA that they are working diligently to remedy the issue. There are some available now in the warehouse with the new chainrings but they have not sifted through the complete inventory as of yet. The SDURO bikes have impressed us here at Ebikes Hawaii, offering a very high quality performance electric mountain at a reasonable price point. Take the All Mtn SL for example (pictured above). Full air adjustable suspension, 150mm front and rear travel, decent components, Yamaha's bullet proof mid drive, all priced at $3799. In general, a comparable XDURO Bosch Haibike will run you about $1000 more compared to it's SDURO Yamaha counterpart. The differences, you might ask? Technically speaking, the Bosch system provides about 10 to 15 newton meters more torque. The system is lighter, due to it's smaller form factory battery. Both packs provide the same capacity at 400 watt hours, capable of assisting riders far beyond their physical capability to ride the bike. A rumor'd 500 watt hour pack may arrive in 2017. We noticed that the Yamaha system provided instantaneous assist, providing power accurately and quickly with any input of a pedal stroke. The Bosch Gen 2, otherwise known as the Performance line has received a recent update giving it similar feel, while the XDURO 3 (Bosch Gen 3) systems come shipped with this update. One of the key differences is the ability to run a standard dual chainring setup on the SDURO, allowing riders to climb insane grades of hills (while still maintaining reasonable top speeds). The Bosch is limited to a single ring up front. All in all, we and our customers thoroughly enjoy the SDURO lineup, giving customers 90% of the XDURO experience at a much lower price point!
