Vallkree Scrambler & Vallkree Drifter Review by ebn

<br>  QUALITY BUILD AND COMFORTABLE TO RIDE ALL DAY LONG, PLUS JASON MOMOA RIDES ONE! Whenever someone hears I ride eBikes, they always seem to be a disappointed when they actually see what I ride. I guess when I mention electric bikes, 9 times out of 10, they’re thinking it’s an electric motorcycle. But I guess you wouldn’t have that problem if you had one- well I should say two of these bad boys! These are the latest models from the Byron Bay manufacturer, the Scrambler and Drifter. Inspired by vintage Café racers, these eBikes are street legal and retail at $3300 and $3800 respectively. Now you’re probably wondering, “What’s the difference?”. There are many things that these two models share, from the 250W rear hub motor, the Dapu electronics, to the 8 speed Shimano Acera drivetrain; but what separates them is the frame size and accessories (which I touch on later). The Scrambler is essentially aimed at small to medium riders, whilst the Drifter is more for large to extra-large riders, like Jason Momoa. But what’s interesting is that the measurements like seat tube and effective top tube are pretty much the same between the two models. The only significant differences were the rim widths and seat-stay and chain-stay lengths. The Scrambler uses 60mm wide rims, compared to the 75mm on the Drifter which allows an optional 4...


  VALLKREE X THE STAMPEDE TRAIL SIMON WILLIAMS x OCTOBER 2,2017 x HUMANS x SIMPLE SKILLS     Tell us a little bit about Terumi (her story leading up to the inception of VALLKREE) …   I’m a Japanese girl who loves surfing and working with lifestyle products. I moved to Australia in 2006, after university life and working in sports manufacturer & real estate investment company in Tokyo, Japan. I started my own business, which is a distribution company of Japanese surfing accessories, in 2008. I couldn’t speak English at that time but my passion made it possible. I could be the first person who brought Japanese surfing brands and products into Australia!!! My partner and I moved to Byron Bay together in 2013, as he wanted to be involved in the local art industry of creative Byron shire. Our warehouse is in the Byron art & industry estate which is 7 min’s away from town… if no traffic. But during the peak of summer in Byron Bay, which seems to be becoming more permanent, the drive to town or the surf was more like 30-45mins due to the traffic jammed single road to town. We started thinking: – “how can we better commute, eco consciously, free of traffic?” And so we began to develop VALLKREE Electric Bikes with a vintage inspired vibe, to give them wings, to glide through and to the village and beaches of...

Get on your ebike - The ebikes you want right now

15 June, 2017 By: Courtney Pearson   Get some fresh air and save your legs. Electric bikes are gaining speed in WA and with a bunch of new models now out, there's a bike to suit everyone. Western Australia is already big on cycling. More than 40 per cent of Perth residents cycle every week, while in regional WA about half of the population cycles weekly. With a healthy cycling community the take up of ebikes is expected to be strong, especially when it will make the commute much easier on your legs. Now that legislation on ebikes is in place all around Australia, the very first WA retailer of ebikes, Bikemore, is seeing the market steadily grow. “Over the past couple of years more and more models have become available, there is better technology and far more people are aware of the benefits of an electric bike,” says Bikemore manager Garry Crofts. “For commuters, it means they aren’t getting hot and sweaty so they can feel good for the rest of the day." Global annual sales of power-assisted pedal bikes are predicted to reach more than 40 million by 2023. Thinking about an ebike? These are the models that Crofts says to put...


HOT WHEELS! AQUAMAN STAR JASON MOMOA TAKES CUSTOMISED $3800 ALL-TERRAIN BIKE FOR SPIN ON THE SANDS OF SURFERS PARADISE… BEFORE GRABBING A COFFEE WITH TRAINER MADA ABDELHAMID He’s been spotted around the Gold Coast and Byron Bay in the lead up to shooting his new DC blockbuster. And to celebrate a day away from the Aquaman set Jason Momoa has flaunted his customised all-terrain bike by Vallkree worth up to $3800 by taking it for a spin on the beach. The 37-year-old actor was seen riding the bike in Surfers Paradise before he took it on the roads – and the pavement – to meet up with a mate for a coffee. Hunk of wheels! The Game of Thrones star tested his customised bike’s ability on the streets and held up the ‘rock on’ hand gesture and showed off a big grin Jason looked thrilled to be testing out the bike’s performance on the sand, even taking a moment for an in motion selfie. The biking enthusiast kept his look casual in a pair of shorts and a singlet that showed off his big muscular arms. Donning a pair of dark sunglasses, he appeared not to have a worry in the world as he pedalled up and down the beach in flip flops. All-terrain bike: Jason appeared to be enjoying trying the bike’s capabilities on the sand as he had quickly checked the notification on his phone Taking a moment: The biking enthusiast even took a...

Byron Zero Emissions

    ‘Towards Zero Emissions Byron’ Lighthouse ride on February 4   A group of community representatives were riding up to the lighthouse to show case the "Zero Emissions Byron" represented by Sunshine Cycles.

It’s the best way to enjoy the Bay in a more relaxed and...

"Roll out on an electric bike from VALLKREE" by The Weekend Edition Gold Coast

A beautifully restored vintage motorcycle is undoubtedly one of the coolest ways to get around town but if you don’t have the necessary license (or the funds for such a magnificent machine), Byron Bay’s VALLKREE makes vintage-inspired electric bikes that are just as good, if not better, than the real deal. Based on the styling of a 1920s American board tracker, VALLKREE electric bikes are made to command eyeballs. Offering all of the freedom that comes with a traditional motorcycle, VALLKREE bikes have the added benefit of never having to stop for petrol. The bikes house premium quality 36-volt 11-amp Samsung lithium ion batteries and a 250-watt geared brushless rear hub motor so you can zip about town to your heart’s content.   The lightweight purpose-built alloy bike frames not only look amazing but they are extremely strong and functional. Fitted with a water resistant display, VALLKREE bikes feature a trip computer, speedometer, self-diagnostic system, battery indicator, distance calculator and headlight button alongside Sram Avid BB5 brakes on front and rear, in combination with Tektro levers, which have an automatic motor kill switch upon braking. Available in black, army green and red, prices start at $2950.00. Drool over the Board Tracker 250 online. Published on December 10, 2015 by Jade Quinlivan
