Dyson Bikes Evo and Mixte electric bikes

The Evo and Mixte have beautifully designed and engineered frames that offer a reassuring ride and have optimal frame geometry for solid handling and comfortable ride position. The precision welded alloy frames will not rust or corrode over time and are coated with a durable and stylish matte black paint. The frames also hide the battery perfectly and the battery is locked into place with a keyed lock for added security.

Our customer reviews explain everything: "I ride mine to work every day and I love it. As for traffic I can get home quicker than in the car- just LOVE my electric Dyson bike." Sara B

All models share the same 250W high-torque hub motor, which is totally maintenance-free, super reliable and extremely quiet. The motor offers six levels of power assistance, which can be quickly selected from the handlebar mounted digital display unit.

Simply hop on the bike and start pedalling and the cadence sensor will activate the motor. Stop pedalling and the motor will stop - and applying either brake lever will also immediately cut power to the motor for added safety. If you can ride a bike, you can ride a Dyson e-Bike. It’s that simple.

  • Brakes: Tektro - 180mm disc rotor, hydraulic operated with alloy levers featuring integrated power cut outs

Dyson Bikes RTC models

We recently added an RTC version to each model – where RTC stands for Rail, Trail and Commuter. Whilst our standard Evo and Mixte’s come with a choice of 11Ah or 15Ah – our RTC models only come with the larger 15Ah capacity batteries as standard.

[The Hard Tail Evo RTC]

The main specifications of our RTC models are the same as listed above however there are a few notable differences:

  • Extruded aluminium mudguards are included – these are so strong they will last forever...no plastic that will quickly become brittle under the Australian sun!
  • Awesome quality rear rack designed for panniers - and in particular the Ortlieb range - so there's no extra rattle.
  • Larger display unit with an intergrated USB charge port, battery meter, plus speed and trip distance display.

  • We also throw in powerful front and rear lights, which are operated from the handlebar mounted display unit. They contain top-grade LED chips, which have high light output, while maintaining a low current draw – plus they are powered by the bike’s main battery, so you never need to buy batteries for them or charge them up separately. The rear light also has a ‘brake light’ functionality for extra safety, flashing when either the front or rear brake is used.

  • Other finishing touches include Shimano 9-speed rear derailleur, adjustable SR Suntour XCM suspension fork with lock-out, Slime puncture sealant filled Kenda Tyres, a super comfy gel seat, disc brakes and Weimann Dyno Rims with Pillar stainless steel spokes.

Whichever Dyson Electric Bike you opt for, you can be assured of getting the very best bang-for-buck e-Bikes in Australia and with the complete packages that our RTC models offer, all you need to do is strap on a helmet and start riding, be it rain or shine, dark or light.

Stay fit and active, while having fun – is there anything better than that? Pretty unlikely.

Future Transport - Electric Bike Challenges

We already know that many cities and regional centres are doing a lot to help improve the future of transport in Australia: higher density living surrounding train stations and providing more secure bike parking by stations to invite train users to ride to the station rather than drive.

But what are the problems riders encounter in wanting to ride their electric bike to/from the station and around their local suburb? Essentially they need to feel safe and comfortable riding around and, somewhere secure to store e-bikes whilst they travel on public transport.

The future of transport – are electric bikes the answer?

When we think of driving across cities today – it conjures up nightmare traffic jams, accident near misses and possibly, a lot of swearing! But what do you think when we talk about crossing Melbourne, Sydney or even Los Angeles in 10- or 20-years’ time? Will everyone be peacefully transported whilst they sit ‘zen like’ in the back of their private self-driven electric vehicles? Or will we be transporting ourselves, on our pedal assisted e-bikes – still peacefully – maintaining our physical and emotional fitness and living in a more engaged community environment?

Cargo e-Bikes – The lowdown.

If you love the idea of getting around on a top-quality e-Bike, but have to haul lots of gear and maybe even a kid or two then an electric cargo bike is perfect for you. Traditional cargo bikes were heavy and featured clunky designs, they are hard work. Nowadays, it’s a whole new ball game. They are easy, practical, safe, environmental and yes, you guessed it, fun as well. Take a look at the super Yuba Cargo e-Bikes in stock at Dyson Bikes, Melbourne.
