Features of the El Hefe 2024 – Dual-Motor 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

Powerfull 500w Vamos Rear Motor

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

Front & Rear Titans Hydraulic 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. Titans hydraulic disc brakes come fully fitted to the front and rear.

Front Disk Brake:

Front Brake

Integrated Front & Rear Lights
Ready to ride, day or night

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.

Front Light:

Front light

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.

Handlebars

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.

Hefe seat

SHIMANO 8-Speed Gear Set

Hefe comes fully fitted with a SHIMANO a 8-speed gear set. Cruisin’ up and down the gears feels truly effortless.

Fat Chaoyang Tires

26′ (tall) x 4′ (wide) fat Chaoyang tyres will catch the eyes of people you cruise by whilst allowing you to explore different terrains with their superior traction profile. Cruise the pavement or get off-road. With serious off-road capability on mud, sand, dirt or grass, these tyres will have you staying on-track.

El Hefe Unboxing (from a customer) - Chris From Perth WA

The video below was sent into us by a customer (Chris, from Perth WA). Chris purchased El Hefe after lengthy search for something fun with good bang-for-buck 😊. He noted that he found it hard to find any video reviews on El Hefe. So, he made one for us to share with the community! See below for his thoughts on El Hefe. We recommend watching the full 11+ minute video. It includes a comprehensive review and close-up in-depth footage of all components. He takes you through from assembly through to end-use. We did not pay Chris for this video in any way shape or form, and he paid full price for the bike.

Ozzie Wright (Australian Pro Surfer) Accessing Some Uncrowded Waves in Byron Bay Thanks to His El Hefe

Ozzy has been loving his El Hefe. He sent us in this clip to show us some of the empty peaks he’s been able to score up in the otherwise very busy Byron Bay beaches. His Hefe takes him from door to sand and along the beach. What used to take him sometimes hours of scoping up and down the beaches now takes just minutes.

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.UPDATE: Just coming up to 1,000ks on my El Hefe. Zero probs and loving it.

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!

It’s been more than a year now since I’ve sold my car and chosen to commute to work exclusively by bike. Alternating days on my road bike and ebike, I get to ride by the river and through park lands daily vs being stuck in traffic. 2 days on the Vamos El Hefe and 3 days on my road bike makes it sustainable and fun. I can honestly say that I’ve consistently had a brighter and more productive day as a result! I arrive to work happier and definitely energised which is a win for my students!3000km now and still going strong. Unleash the beast! What’s surprising is that I don’t miss my car! El Hefe has been a trooper. What headwind?

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. 👌🚴 🏄‍♂️ 🏝

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.

I’ve just received my new El Hefe. What a bike! I live in a hilly area & the bike flys up the hills with no problem. It’s comfortable, looks good & comes complete. Nothing else to buy. If you don’t have one, get one now![UPDATE] It’s been a year since I posted , so, I thought I’d update. I’m still loving my El hefe. Being over 60 & partially disabled, exercise can be problematic. With El Hefe, no problems. Comfortable seat, good gear range & good battery life. The customer service from the Vamos team has been exemplary. I’ve customised my bike, with a springer front forks & leather saddle bags, to give that vintage look.I love my bike. I can’t recommend Vamos Bikes enough !

Since Conrad dropped off my Vamos El Hefe cruiser e-bike, I feel like my world has opened up. It’s SO much easier to hit my daily surf checks of Bondi Beach, Tamarama and Bronte, and yesterday when the surf was small, I took myself on a ride of the hilly backstreets of Bronte to check out the swing overlooking Bronte Beach for the first time. An amazing way to clear my head and get those Sunday vibes flowing right!

Best part of working from home is heading down to the beach for a cheeky lunch time swim on our Vamos e-bike. Great value, and zips along like nothing else.Countdown is on till we can get this ritual going again.

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.

  1. 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 comfortable

    At 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.

    UPDATE: Just coming up to 1,000ks on my El Hefe. Zero probs and loving it.

  2. 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!

  4. It’s been more than a year now since I’ve sold my car and chosen to commute to work exclusively by bike. Alternating days on my road bike and ebike, I get to ride by the river and through park lands daily vs being stuck in traffic. 2 days on the Vamos El Hefe and 3 days on my road bike makes it sustainable and fun. I can honestly say that I’ve consistently had a brighter and more productive day as a result! I arrive to work happier and definitely energised which is a win for my students!

    3000km now and still going strong. Unleash the beast! What’s surprising is that I don’t miss my car! El Hefe has been a trooper. What headwind?

  5. 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. 👌🚴 🏄‍♂️ 🏝

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  27. The El Hefe is a cruiser of strength & comfort with power to spare, just the bike for Summer!! Take it shopping with you as you carry your purchases in your pannier at the back rack! The rear motor can take you up to 40Kmh unladen also be sure to have tire pressures up to attchhive this speed.

    So it is a bike for comfort as exercise is optional.

  28. I’ve just received my new El Hefe. What a bike! I live in a hilly area & the bike flys up the hills with no problem. It’s comfortable, looks good & comes complete. Nothing else to buy. If you don’t have one, get one now!

    [UPDATE] It’s been a year since I posted , so, I thought I’d update. I’m still loving my El hefe. Being over 60 & partially disabled, exercise can be problematic. With El Hefe, no problems. Comfortable seat, good gear range & good battery life. The customer service from the Vamos team has been exemplary. I’ve customised my bike, with a springer front forks & leather saddle bags, to give that vintage look.

    I love my bike. I can’t recommend Vamos Bikes enough !

  32. My El Hefe arrived last week and was packed so well it could have been delivered across the Himalayas on the back of a three-legged donkey and still would have got there in one piece. If this bike was an animal it would have the heart of a lion, the legs of a cheetah, and the look of a tiger. But to call it a bicycle is like calling the Burj Khalifa a building. This thing is a beast that should not be used by children or adults with a heart condition. I love it.

  35. Purchased the El Hefe cruiser.. really enjoying it and it’s as advertised online… the staff at Vamos were readily contactable by phone (which was answered by a person) and quickly sorted out some very minor issues I had with the LCD settings. Would recommend the bike and the company to do business with…
