Volt is one of the UK’s leading electric bike manufacturers and distributors.  Volt bikes are designed and engineered in the UK and have a good reputation for quality and reliability and have developed a range of about 18 ebikes now in 2017.  They have catered for most areas of the market, tailoring each model to ensure battery, frame style, tyres, suspension, gears and accessories cater for the needs of those who are likely to buy those ebikes.  Volt also offers a full 2-year warranty on all electric bikes and claim that the electric components are maintenance free.

So which Volt Electric Bike is most suitable for you?

Because of the wide range of Volt ebikes available, we’ve broken them down below into categories, providing a bit of a comparison, with pros and cons of each model so you can easily decide which Volt electric bike is best for you.

Volt Folding Ebikes

Volts folding ebikes are some of the best on the market.  They are solidly built but are still relatively light, and because of the location of the battery behind the seat post, are well balanced and easy to cycle.

Volt Men’s Electric Bikes

Volt Pulse Men's Electric Bike

Volt Pulse Men’s Hybrid Ebike

Volt Pulse Hybrid Ebike   £1,499.00

The Volt Pulse ranks high in the Men’s Hybrid bike category because it has a very good battery capacity providing 80+ miles from each charge if you buy the more expensive model, and is very good value for money under £1,700.  The addition of a throttle-only motor control option is welcome on longer journeys too.  It is also one of the lightest ebikes in this category, often 5kgs lighter than its rivals.

As you would expect from the price tag and name the Volt Infinity is Volt’s top of the range model with cutting-edge technology.  It features the Shimano STEPS crank drive and hub which are very smooth, quiet and efficient compared to come electric motors on the market.

If you expect to take on some steeper climbs and tougher paths then you are better with an electric mountain bike than a hybrid ebike because they offer wider and deeper tyres with more grip, and are designed for uphill and downhill cycling.  Volt has two models, starting with the Alpine which is well equipped.

  • LCD Display showing speed, distance, battery power and more.
  • Up to 80+ miles assisted range – Panasonic Lithium Polymer Battery
  • 250 Watt SpinTech Motor
  • 19.5kg Weight

Volt Alpine X Electric Mountain Bike

Volt Alpine X Electric Mountain Bike

Volt Alpine X Electric Mountain Bike   £1,999.00

At first glance, the Alpine X looks no different from the Alpine above, but it features a Super High Torque motor and has the option of 29″ wheels.  It also has higher specification brakes and gear system.  The extra torque should give the more avid mountain biker an advantage when heading back to the top of the trail.

  • LCD Display showing speed, distance, battery power and more.
  • Up to 80+ miles assisted range – Panasonic Battery
  • 250 Watt Super High Torque SpinTechTM Power Motor

Volt Women’s Electric Bikes

As well as the folding bikes Volt has also catered for the women’s ebike market with two main models below.

Volt Burlington ladies electric bike

Volt Burlington Women’s Electric Bike   Out of stock

The Volt Burlington is a hybrid-style ebike with a step-through frame suitable for women cyclists and men who have trouble stepping over the admittedly high crossbar of a standard men’s bike.  Step through frames tend to be heavier than A-frame bikes because the cross frame has to be wider and more sturdy so the Burlington weighs just under 21kg, but this is still very good for an electric bike.

  • LCD Display showing speed, distance, battery power and more.
  • Up to 60+ miles assisted range – Lithium Polymer Battery
  • 250 Watt SpinTech Motor
  • 20.8kg Weight
  • Gears – Shimano 8 Speed Alivio derailleur
  • Front and Rear Mechanical Disc Brakes
  • Front Suspension

 

Volt Kensington vintage electric bike blue cream

Volt Kensington Vintage Electric Bike

Volt Kensington Vintage Women’s Electric Bike   £1,459.00

Available in cream and pastel blue the Volt Kensington definitely caters for leisure riders who want a vintage style electric bike.  With brown leather seat and handlebars and a metal front basket it does the job very well but is packed with the same technology featured on all other Volt electric bikes.  It is slightly lighter than the Burlington and slightly cheaper too.

  • LCD Display showing speed, distance, battery power and more.
  • Up to 60+ miles assisted range – Lithium Polymer Battery
  • 250 Watt SpinTech Motor
  • 19.5kg Weight
  • Gears – Shimano 8 Speed Alivio derailleur
  • Front and Rear Mechanical Disc Brakes
