Exploring New Zealand on electric mountain bikes

Sometimes, the only motivation to go for a ride is to enjoy the simplicity of being outside on two wheels, taking in the scenery with the sun’s warmth on your skin. It’s hard to beat the feeling of carving on your mountain bike when nothing seems to matter but the trail ahead. But it often takes a fresh approach to reach that blissful state where your worries fade away.

Trek Factory Racing Enduro athlete Casey Brown spends most days getting her wheels off the ground for video spots or competing in Enduro World Series events, and Anton Cooper competes against the world’s best on the World Cup cross-country mountain biking circuit. But even professional riders like to throw the seriousness and composure of competition out the window and simply ride for the fun of it.

For Brown and Cooper, the free reign they find on the trails is a big part of why they began riding in the first place. Hoping to spend some down time getting back to mountain biking’s carefree and rebellious roots, these two adventurers-at-heart hit the New Zealand back-country for a multi-day journey aboard Powerfly, Trek’s electric pedal-assist mountain bike.

Their one goal? Have a blast.

Flowing over rolling hillsides and offering stunning views of the surrounding mountains, the trails of Craigieburn Forest Park just outside of Christchurch are a mountain biking playground. With so much to explore, any rider who experiences the area will have trouble calling it a day, but even world-class athletes like Brown and Cooper can grow tired after hours of ripping the singletrack.

That is, unless they’re aboard Powerfly.

Powerfly keeps the good times rolling, easily turning what might be a one-hour trail ride into an all-day quest for new terrain. The simple switch of a button lets you pedal easily where you’d otherwise have to dig deep, so if you thought you’d stop after just one loop, think again. Powerfly extends the adventure for riders of all kinds and skill levels, who will love feeling fresh even after a full day exploring the trails.

Powerfly lets you go further, whether in the New Zealand backcountry or on the local singletrack. Epic marathon riders and weeknight adventure-seekers alike will love the boost that Powerfly provides. Check out the full line of Powerfly hardtail and full suspension models, and embrace simply riding for the fun of it.
