A new generation of bikes is taking the trails by storm and is already a part of everyday life. eBikes are a modern means of transport for modern people. The Bosch portfolio ranges from the highly efficient drive unit (motor and gearbox) and high-quality batteries to a smart on-board and cycle computer that can be used intuitively. Perfect coordination of components holds the key to typical Bosch performance in terms of both comfort and efficiency. Like other Bosch products, the eBike systems benefit from the Bosch Group’s technology and production know-how. From conception and engineering to manufacturing, marketing and after-sales service, Bosch eBike Systems constantly set new standards for the eBike industry. The Bosch Group’s experience in the areas of electric motors, sensor technology, displays and lithium-ion batteries ensures that Bosch eBike systems use technology that is invented for life and that eBike users have their fun.

Media Sponsors


“Radio Wanaka broadcasts on 92.2 FM & 97FM in Wanaka and 99.1 FM in Cromwell. Sister-station ‘Roy’ broadcasts on 94.6FM. The two are Wanaka’s only locally owned and operated radio stations and as usual will be playing a big role in the lead-up to the race.

Radio Wanaka’s owner Mike Regal completed last year’s 95km Contact Classic at a gentlemanly pace and reckons it’s got to be the best mountain bike race in the country. He’s back in 2014 hoping for a better time and better weather while Radio Wanaka breakfast host Bradley Craig will be on site at the Lake Hawea Hotel welcoming the competitors home”
