Coast Trikes are new to Aotearoa, so we understand if you have a few questions! Find your answer here.

How far can I ride?

Our eTrike’s battery can take you up to 50km on a single charge, depending on use. That’s pretty far, so we recommend you stay within the Whangamatā town boundary - there’s plenty to see in a small radius.

How fast do they go?

Our eTrikes can go up to 25kph. Super quick! You can choose between five different speed levels with the built-in LCD screen’s mode controller.

Do you have to wear a helmet?

Yes! Safety is a top priority for us at Coast Trikes. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Do I need a license to ride?

No. Our eTrikes are so easy to use, you don’t need to have any experience at all to come and have a go. Our friendly staff will give you a safety briefing before we send you off on your adventure once they are confident you are up to it.

How old do I have to be to ride?

Riders need to be 12 or over. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

How do I hire?

There are 3 options - online via our website; call us on 07 280 4551 or walk in at 101 Casement Rd, Whangamatā.

What information do I need to provide?

We’ll take a record of your ID and a bond of $50 per eTrike. This will be refunded upon the safe return of our eTrike.
