Warranties and Exchanges

Please note the following: Legendebikes NZ policy regarding warranty, return or exchange of goods. The Consumer Guarantee Act and Fair Trading Act provide the basis for Legendebikes NZ returns policy. For a product to be returned under our policy, that product must be in a resalable condition unless faulty or otherwise defective.

Consumer Guarantees Act 1993

The Consumer Guarantee Act sets out minimum standards for goods sold by Legendebikes NZ. In the event that goods sold are not of good manufacturing quality or are faulty, the customer has the right to a repair, replacement or a refund.

Fair Trading Act 1986

The Fair Trading Act is designed to protect the customer being misled, either intentionally or unintentionally. This applies to all aspects of the promotion and sale of goods and services including: pricing; where the product was made; where the product is from; the meeting of New Zealand safety standards; availability of products in store and the sales techniques used. The Commerce Commission enforces the Fair Trading Act 1986.



All goods supplied by Legend Distributors Ltd and Legendebikes NZ are covered for the original owner against manufacturing defects. 

  1. If an item has failed prematurely, please follow our Warranties, Returns and Exchanges procedures, providing us with details of the product and fault. Your original Legendebikes NZ New Zealand Tax Invoice must be produced.
  2. Please note that if a part or certain product cannot be rectified within New Zealand then it may need to be returned to our European suppliers, for inspection and possible repair, before a credit can be issued.
  3. Goods are subject to the manufacturers' warranties. We will pass on the benefit of those warranties to you, without being directly liable to you under any warranty.
  4. Where goods are subject to warranty, you are responsible for returning them to us or the manufacturer (as provided by the warranty) at your cost. If the goods provided to you are faulty we will refund you the delivery charges on proof of incurred costs.
  5. Warranty will be voided if damage to or misuse of the product has occurred or problems caused by inadequate packaging or storage.
  6. Original Proof of purchase is required (Tax invoice). We will confirm through our systems that we have sold you the product(s) prior to return. In the event of a problem with the product during the warranty period, our service team can be contacted by emailing us at You will need to provide the following information:
    Your Name
    Your Address
    Date of Purchase
    Model number of Product
    Serial Number
    Description of problem

  7. The warranty does not cover and will not award compensation for any damages arising from modifications or adjustments made to the product in compliance with local or national safety or technical regulations.
  8. The warranty will not be deemed valid if the serial number of the product has been altered or erased, has disappeared or is illegible.
  9. The warranty covers only the original purchasing consumer and is not transferable.
  10. All Legendebikes Bike products carry a 2 year manufacturers warranty against manufacturers defects from the date of original purchase. Warranty excludes consumables and provided normal conditions are met. Warranty does not cover normal wear and tear. All electrical components including batteries carry a 1 year manufacturers warranty. 
  11. The loss of charge/distance of the battery as a result of the ageing of the battery, does not imply a manufacturing defect. The charge/distance declared in the technical sheet of each product responds to the results of tests carried out under the following conditions.
    Cyclist weight: 70 Kgs.
    Land without slope
    Normal atmospheric conditions.
    Route without stops.
  12.  The battery warranty does not include damage from power surges, use of improper chargers, improper maintenance or other such misuse, normal wear or water. Third party batteries (ie not supplied by Legend eBikes) used in any of our Legend eBikes will void any warranty claims whatsoever. In the event that a non-legendebike battery charger is used to charge the ebike, the battery and electronic aspects of the bike will not be covered under any warranty claim whatsoever.
  13. The 2-year bike warranty does not cover parts that suffer continuous wear and tear due to the normal use of the electric bicycle (eg  brake shoes, air chambers, chain, cables and covers, tires, lamps, kick stands etc) . The warranty does not cover water damage. Submersion of the components, even on well sealed units will allow water to creep into the workings of the motor and connections and are not covered under the warranty. This is simple for us to see and it is simple for you to avoid. Legendebikes are made to run in the rain but these are above water units. Never clean with a high pressure hose or waterblaster. Water causes corrosion and malfunction of several other components.
  14. The warranty only covers the repair or replacement of the defective components. These replacement parts may be new or reconditioned but the decision of what parts to use will be Legendebikes NZ. It does not cover personal and material damages that could be derived directly or indirectly from the failure of the same during the use.
  15. In the event of any type of accident with your eBike, the Legend warranty is completely voided.
  16. To qualify for the manufacturers' warranty, you must ensure that your Legend eBike receives its first service check performed by a professional bike shop within either 12 months or 500kms from date of purchase, which ever comes first.  Thereafter, service checks should be performed at least every 12 months.  The cost of ebike servicing is bourne by the owner. You must provide us with proof that this service check has been performed if a warranty claim is made (eg: invoice of servicing fee).  Think of these service checks as like a Warrant of Fitness inspection.  If they identify issues that should be covered by warranty, then get in contact with us immediately.
  17. Due to warranty regulations and in order to comply with our warranty conditions, all Legendebikes products must be assembled by a qualified bike mechanic in an approved store - this is an international policy for Legendebikes International.
