We have a true passion for e-bikes
Incorporating design and development excellence, Darrvin Electric builds products for the quality conscious buyer, with affordability a top priority.
Founders, Gert and Gustav, together bring four decades of business and industry experience to DARRVIN ELECTRIC. They spent the better part of 2017 and 2018 developing a range of exceptional e-bikes specifically for the quality/cost conscious buyer.
Darrvin e-bikes are not off-the-shelve, re-branded products. Thoughtful design has led to a nimble, robust and highly efficient range of e-bikes, suited to off-and on-road use. Darrvin offers the best overall value in terms of performance and reliability, while offering a comprehensive after-sales and support service:
Drop-And-Go, includes a specialized diagnostics, repair or replacement service, and expert advice on all related e-bike use and maintenance issues. It offers a complete parts desk, including spare batteries and a range of quality accessories. All components carry our standard warranty and guarantees.

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY: Darrvin bikes are first and foremost about great value, not necessarily tied into the price point, but rather the best quality product with top quality components and functionality, packaged into a beautiful simplistic design that is attractive and affordable . We focus on every individual component of the bike, and we keep sight of the whole as part of an integrated design.
We use Bafang mid-drive electrical motors on all our e-bike models. They are durable and reliable motors and Darrvin is a registered service agent for Bafang. The company has been manufacturing e-bike motors and parts since 1990 and are an established industry leader. The motors are whisper quiet and smooth, yet punchy and powerful.
The battery is a 50 cell 500Wh unit with an integrated management system and is interchangeable between all Darrvin e-bike models. Charge time ranges between 4-6 hours. Our e-bikes all have a range of between 40-70 miles, depending on the usual factors such as overall weight, terrain, stops along the way, wind-factor, etc.
CLICK & COLLECT: When a customer purchases an e-bike directly we unpack it at the warehouse, adjust everything, check all the components and test the system. The e-bike is then repackaged in a way that makes it easy to assemble and shipped out to the customer’s address.
The ‘’click and collect’’ option at check-out, means the e-bike is also tested and repackaged before shipped out, but final assembly is done by a ‘Click & Collect Partner’. The C&C partner is a local dealer in the area where the customer resides. When the bike arrives and is fully assembled, the customer can collect at the partner. Signing the receipt voucher with the dealer, covers the future guarantee and warrantees simultaneously.
