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, Gustav, Gert and Thom 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:
Darrvin offers 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 the latest mid-drive electrical motors on all our e-bike models. The motors are whisper quiet and smooth, yet punchy and powerful. They are durable and reliable motors with Darrvin offering a full warrantee, service and repair all electrical and mechanical components of our bicycles, ensuring peace of mind for our customers, countrywide.
The battery is a 50 cell 500Wh unit with an integrated management system and is interchangeable between all Darrvin e-bike models. Charge times range between 4-6 hours. A fully charged battery will 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.
ONLINE PURCHASES: When a customer purchases an e-bike directly we unpack it at the warehouse, adjust everything, check all the components and test all the systems. Before shipping, the e-bike is then boxed in a way that makes it easy to self assemble by the customer. We typically ship overnight, same day the order is received*.
Customers have the option for the bike to be build by a professional, the ‘’click and collect’’ option at check-out, which means the e-bike is also tested and repackaged at our distribution center prior to shipping, but final assembly is done by a ‘Click & Collect Partner’, typically a bicycle shop near where the customer resides. When the bike is fully assembled, the customer can collect at the partner. There is no extra cost associated with this service.
