High Quality Bikes & Equipment

At Grasshopper Adventures, we pride ourselves on providing you with top quality bicycles, e-bikes, and cycling equipment to ensure your cycle tour through Asia goes as smoothly as possible. Take a look at the range of quality bikes we offer for each country and their features that provide the utmost comfort for your cycling journey.

In almost every destination we offer e-bikes as an optional extra, and in many cases, you can choose between a standard frame or a step-through frame for your e-bike. The step-through allows for easy mounting and dismounting from the bike to enhance rider confidence. In Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, and Thailand we also currently offer premium bike upgrade options for riders who crave performance.
