New: GASGAS Electroflow™

Awesome to have GASGAS on board for our Electroflow™ eBike-specific classification! These bikes have just hit the Australian market – they have Spanish roots and are part of the Austrian-based Pierer Mobility Group (which Rocky Trail’s Austro-Australian Founders secretly love!), where the technology that goes into the big line-up of models benefits of the state-of-the-art manufacturing facility right in the heart of Europe.

These bikes are a bit CHEEKY, they’re all about FUN, ROOSTING, they’re ready shred and ROCK – we reckon they’ll fit right into our Rocky Trail community vibe, literally boosting the GASGAS Electroflow™ into its next chapter of the Superflow® history.

You’ll be able to demo and test ride these awesome bikes at MANY events across NSW, VIC, QLD and the ACT, of course! Let’s go!
