E-bike That Doesn’t Look Like It’s Electric

Posted March 30, 2017

The Volta is an electric bike that doesn’t look it’s electric and offers up to 65 km of electric assist for every 2 hour charge of the Li-ion battery that is hidden away in the top tube of the aluminum frame. That battery feeds a 36 V/250 W rear wheel hub motor, with riders able to choose from four power modes to help pedal their way up to 32 km/h.

When the rider hits the disc brakes, the taillight activates and the motor assist is disabled. Regen braking system charges battery and help get a few more kilometers of assist and if the bike does run out of power during a trip, the rider can use leg power to get home. Speed and battery information is displayed on a touch-enabled LED screen up front. A built-in lights to the front and rear automatically illuminate when daylight starts to fade. It also features a GPS tracking device, with location and tamper alerts pushed to a mobile device running the companion apps, that include ride and health tracking capabilities and power level controls. To see it in action watch a video below.
