Features of the El Hefe – Cruiser E-Bike (Pre-Order)

Light Alloy Frame

El Hefe’s frame is made of premium alloy. Whilst it looks big and chunky, use of alloy keeps this e-bike’s frame deceptively light. Our El Diablo’s is more of a speedster if that’s your thing. We designed El Hefe for the cruiser. For people that want to catch eyes. It still packs plenty of punch. Combined with its large and powerful motor, the deceptive lightness of this alloy frame means you’ll still glide up the steepest of hills with ease.

Hefe Frame

High-Powered High-Torque BAFANG Rear Motor

Befang isa leading name in e-bike motor design. Operating for almost 20 years they are well established in the industry. They back this motor with a 1-year warranty. It’s built to last.

Located within the centre of the rear wheel, these motors are compact, light and discreet.  High-power and high-torque is what you need in a bulkier cruiser.

Pedalling the bike will activate the motor, speeding you onwards with intelligent 1:1 pedal assist. If pedalling is not your thing, control your speed with the half-grip throttle. Just like a motorbike ?.

Rear Hub 2

Front & Rear TEKTRO Mechanical Disc Brakes

Brakes are a crucial component of any bike. You need to know you’re going to be able to stop safely suddenly.  Especially when you’re motoring along with the high-powered high-torque motor. El Hefe does just that. TEKTRO mechanical disc brakes come fully fitted to the front and rear. Controlled with a pair of 3 finger blade squeeze levers at the handlebars.

Front Disk Brake:

Rear Disk Brake:

Rear Break 2

Integrated Front & Rear Lights

Our competitors don’t include lights with their e-bikes. Ours come fully integrated on the front and rear. Lights are essential to all bikes. Come nightfall you need to be ready to ride safe.

Reflectors underneath the seat and in the wheel spokes provide additional visibility at night.

With El Hefe, there’s no need to spend on aftermarket extras. Everything you need has been thoughtfully included already.

ZOOM Suspension Seat Post

This electric-powered bike comes in one-size, fully customisable to suit your height and riding preference. For the true cruiser look, we recommend setting the seat to its lowest height. Suspension at the top of the seat stem adds extra cushioning to your ride.

Zoom Seat Post

Half Grip Throttle

If pedalling is not your thing, then use the half grip throttle to control your speed when using the motor. Requiring just a half twist around the handlebar to reach full output, this throttle it super user-friendly regardless of your riding experience.

JUSTEK Saddle

We understand you need to keep comfortable in your ride. There’s nothing worse than riding a bike with a hard and uncomfortable seat! That’s why we’ve partnered with Justek for all our bike seats. Hefe’s seat is well-cushioned and will have you cruisin’ in comfort for longer.

 

SHIMANO 7-Speed Gear Set

Hefe comes fully fitted with a SHIMANO a 7-speed gear set. Cruisin’ up and down the gears feels truly effortless.

Absolutely love my new Vamos El Hefe Bike. Firstly, I wanted to back a local company, price was really good, reviews were good, gear (Shimano / Samsung) spot on. Really hard to fault. Customer service was brilliant, as was delivery (despite a slight delay which is down to customs and overall e-commerce being overwhelmed for all companies). Final comments - fairly basic to assemble, rides really well on the beach, road, tracks. Lights all easy to use. Super comfy. Thrilled with this thing. 👌🚴 🏄‍♂️ 🏝

From the monent I saw the El Hefe, I knew this was the bike for me. Being a fairly big guy, I thought that its larger size would make me feel more at home and I wasn't wrong! I use this bike a lot now and I'm amazed at how far I can travel using assistance from the motor. The styling is very cool as is the practicality. It is quite heavy but considering the amount of equipment and size of the bike, this is to be expected. I just love it!

Got my El Hefe, a few probs putting it together correctly. The guys at Vamos were instantly answering emails at 9pm.I'm 75 and lovin my bike. I'm 6'1". A good fit for me, very comfortableAt my age I needed strength and stability. I have a quarter KM of dirt road before I get to a sealed road at my house. I also have a very steep hill so the power was a big factor.The clincher was an Aussie company. Thanks Vamos.... and who'd a thunk? Never thought I'd need a surfboard carrier at 74. Perfect to carry my bow to archery on my El Hefe.

I purchased the Vamos El Hefe at the end of January 2019 and it's been spot on for commuting to and from work without breaking a sweat. The lo, med, hi power settings are really handy and the throttle really helps when you need a quick boost when riding in one of the lower power settings or if you stop pedalling. Although this bike is on the heavier side of other road bikes the brakes last a lot longer than expected. I did recently get a puncture on the rear wheel and the Vamos team was really helpful and responsive to come fix it. It's really comfortable to ride and I really like the style. I've had it 10 months now and I still love it.My commute to work is 9km one way and one charge easily does the two way journey on full power with three of the five l.e.d's still lit on the battery.Weighing up the battery life, durability, style, power and price I'd highly recommend this bike to anyone. It definitely beats catching the depressing bus to work.

Bought this about a year ago and it has changed everything for me. I’ve never been a fan of biking. Now I actually enjoy it and can go pretty far and uphill with the help of the battery. Very cool looking as well, random people on the streets often ask me where did I buy it! I love my bike! Ps: the guys are super professional and helpful.

    Just got my El Hefe speedy delivery Sydney to Phillip Island in Victoria 2 days. Service and communication from the Vamos crew was excellent could not ask for better. The bike is stunning very well put together absolute beast of bike. Will be an ideal island commuter and beach cruiser. The video on here of an owner putting one together was helpful.

    I’ve had this bike for a couple of months now and from the ordering experience to the fast delivery and the quality of the bike this has been a fantastic online purchasing experience.

    The performance of the bike is just awesome and I’m loving being able to ride to my local break for a wave without the hassle of having to find a car park. Buying this bike has taken a lot of stress out of my life!
