When you ride with Vertigo, you experience the thrills & learn new skills in a beautiful environment with expert and knowledgeable guides. At the end of the day, it’s all about having fun!
‘Cos we ride ‘em and sell ‘em (and live & breathe them), naturally we specialize in fixing them, so if it’s workshop services you need, come and see us.

Great gear, perfect location and happy that there were easier and tough routes to choose from. I would have liked it even better if it was guided, since it was quite hard at some points.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 78 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
The staff here were incredibly friendly and helped with booking the tracks in the area. The bike was in great condition and stayed reliable throughout the day. Reasonable price.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
I took the cheaper downhill bike. Parts were okay, last years frame. Bike insurance for $8 was a good choice!
I hired a full suspension bike from Vertigo in Queenstown and cycled the Moonlight track which is a track for advanced cyclists but in a very nice valley near Queenstown. Shop with friendly people and information according to skills. Gear in top condition.

Fun 1/2 day (5 hours) of mountain biking from Queenstown towards Glenorchy. But the advised track was quite engaged and they should have asked about the levels first. $118 for two.
Excellent bikes and other equipment. Friendly staff.
