Features of the Etna Folding Electric Bike
When we say Legend Etna we talk about a model that is mainly one of a kind. We are talking about one of the most versatile Electric Bikes on the market and a vehicle that adapts to all Terrains and Cities. We are talking about a two-wheeled SUV…
Its 27.5" folding MTB Full Suspension frame incorporates a Roxshock XC30 fork, USB Connectivity, hydraulics from Shimano M-315 and a Deore derailleur with 30 speeds. Additionally, there’s the option for loading packages both at front and rear, as well as a set of fenders and lights.
Thanks to the MAHLE ebikemotion® technology our motor controller consumes between 15% and 20% less than our competitors.
All Legend Electric Bikes fully complies with European; Australian and New Zealand Compliance Standards

All the Legend 2022 models use the MAHLE ebikemotion technology https://www.mahle.com/en/news-and-press/press-releases/mahle-makes-e-bikes-even-smarter-87744 and the SMART CONTROL Controller for MID and HUB. With new MOSFET technology and high efficiency algorithms, our motor controller consumes between 15% and 20% less than our competitors, meaning you'll get more kms per charge.
The bike has integrated pedal assistance that will power you along as you pedal. You can choose the level of power that the motor is giving you whilst you cycle - there are 4 levels of power to choose from and these can be selected at any time whilst you are riding. So, when you reach a hill or a strong headwind, you can select a higher power mode to give you more assistance. This control is via a panel, called a joystick, that is situated on the handlebars. This joystick gives you an on/off button, up and down buttons for power control, a battery level indictor and an indicator of which power mode you are in. It's very simple to use in this form. However, if you want something more hi-tech then this can also be accommodated with the App (see below). Smart Phone mounts, rear carrier and mudguards are optional extra accessories
App Control (eBikeMotion)
As described above the bike can be used with the joystick to give you all of the features you'll need for a great ride. However, if technology is your thing then you can connect the bike to you SmartPhone via an App. This gives you access to a host of information including a visual readout of the joystick information, your speed, incline and even a Sat Nav to help you find where you're going to. The 5-button joystick allows you to control assistance levels, walk mode, eBike lights (where fitted) and also the APP itself, with ZOOM functions on maps, movement through them, screen change, activation of voice status notifications, and more. The brochure can be downloaded via the Downloads section below.
The ETNA Legend is designed for everyday use on any type of terrain, is comfortable in urban surroundings and solid in nature.
The battery is integrated in the body of the bicycle and can be extracted easily and quickly. This form of integration improves the aesthetics of the bicycle and reduces the possibility of theft.
Choose the most comfortable position to pedal thanks to its telescopic handlebar that allows you to adjust its height.
36V 14Ah Panasonic or Samsung: approx 100+ kms per charge - standard
Hydraulic disc brakes as standard.
3 x 10 shifters meaning that the bike is ideal for use without the electric power too!
Simple but useful, the USB connection will allow you to recharge your electronic devices when you need it most.

Questions about this bike: Etna Folding Electric Bike
Q. Where's the battery?
A. The battery is housed in the frame - unless you look closely you wouldn't know that this was an electric bike. Imagine how impressive it will look as you sail by those cyclists on their roadbikes!
Q. Is this bike suitable for towpaths?
A. Yes. It's a mountain bike so it's fine for roads, towpaths and trails.
Q. Is it easy to use - I don't want anything complicated!
A. All of the electric control is via a display on the handlebars. The display is called the joystick and it has the buttons that you need to turn the bike on and off, and also buttons to increase or decrease the power level whilst you're cycling. It really is that simple. If you're reading this and thinking it may be too simple and that you want more technology then the bike also caters for you as you can connect the bike via Bluetooth to your Smartphone via the EbikeMotion app.
Q. Is this full suspension and folding?
A. Yes...and don't forget it's electric too. Amazing how they've fitted so much in isn't it?
Q. Is it worth having the hydraulic brakes?
A. It's not essential but it makes a huge difference to stopping power when compared with cable operated brakes. Hydraulic brakes give a more positive feel and as a result you'll feel more confident when riding and braking.
Q. Why does the bike need 30 gears?
A. It's true that 30 gears is a lot and most people, even on standard bikes, only use a few of the gears available. However what it does mean is that you can use the bike as a normal, non assisted bike if you want to - you'll have enough gear ratios to cope with different terrain even without the power. When you do use the power then you'll only use a few of the gears. Essentially the benefit of having 30 gears is the flexibility to use the bike in all eventualities.
Q. I want to pedal but need a bit of help, especially on the hills. Will this bike help me?
A. Yes. The bike has a pedal assistance system so the motor will work with you whilst you pedal. The display that is mounted on the handlebar will then allow you to choose the level of assistance that the motor is giving you. So, when you reach a hill, you can press the button on the display to increase the level of power. The motors are 250w which is more than enough power for even the steepest of hills.
Q. I want to cycle to work but it's all up hill - will this bike be suitable to assist me?
A. Yes. As above, you can use the pedal assistance system to select the amount of power that the motor is giving you. Incidentally, when you cycle home (downhill) you can turn the system off and use your bike as normal.
Q. Can I take the bike out in the rain?
A. Yes. You can take the bike out when it’s raining without having to worry. The connectors on the bike are waterproof; as is the motor; battery and all ancillary components. However, don’t submerge the bike in water although we’re not sure why you’d want to anyway.
Q. Can I remove the battery for security?
A. Yes. All batteries can be locked onto the bike or unlocked and removed. Two keys are provided that will only fit that bike.
Q. Can I use the bike as a normal bike as well as an electric bike?
A. Yes. You can turn the electric system off at any time and just ride as normal.
Q. Do you have a bike that I can try?
A. Yes. We have various pre-assembled electric bikes at our showroom in St Johns, Auckland. In almost all cases our customers who’ve taken this test ride option return to us with a huge grin and cries of “I can’t believe the difference it makes”.
