Joined a few years later by Paul ‘Pang’ Pangus, Vertigo has become THE Bike Shop in Queenstown. Still rider owned and operated, we are a one-stop shop for all your biking needs; be it guiding, heli-biking, coaching, bike sales, workshop or transport, we’ve got it all covered. We pride ourselves on being a small, yet perfectly formed company, which has an unparalleled enthusiasm for all things biking in Queenstown. We have an amazing group of individuals working for us who offer really great service and an unbeatable product. When you ride with our crew you’ll learn new skills & experience the thrills of Queenstown’s incredible terrain. Join us for a ride & make the most of it!

My girl and i rented two downhillbikes from here. The bikes were absolutly top. You also get protection and helmets with it. The staff was very friendly even after i told them my girl crashed one bike. I do recommend for all beginners to take the insurance for 8 dollars. Very professional place.

James gave me a private mentoring session. He was fantastic and truly understood how to teach. The shops close location to the gondola and mountain biking trails was super handy. The whole operation gave fantastic service!!!

Our family of 5 (kids 9, 12, 14) rented 5 mountain bikes for the day. They were all excellent quality, and the brakes had been switched to US standard (rear brake on right) for us. We all rode to 7 mile "bike park" along the highway. The scenery was stunning, but be aware that it's a busy road and there's... More

Fantastic experience with the crew at Vertigo. Arranged bikes on arrival in Queenstown and got the good oil on places to go. Had a spot on trip with the shuttle service out to Coronet peak area and followed it up with two hours of coaching with Tim for the downhill session. Bikes were great and we felt well looked after...

Spent two days on Vertigo bikes - one day on a DH rig and one on an enduro/trail bike. Good bikes (minor issue with brakes for me) and great and friendly service.

After an excellent experience I came back in November with a mate and booked a 5 day DH / back country package with Vertigo again. The bikes were fantastic, full protective gear supplied, and the...

Tim and the team at Vertigo Bikes made our recent Mountain Biking trip to Queenstown an easy and frictionless experience. Local knowledge, high end bikes and a desire to ensure we had the best time while in Queenstown made our trip so much better. Unlike many of the other bike rental stores in Queenstown, Vertigo Bikes aren't a chain store... More
