With our Head Office and showroom conveniently located just up the road from London Cycling Campaign’s HQ, we thought it was about time we invited our like-minded neighbours for a little visit and a test ride on our latest electric bike… The Connect!

“VOLT™ has been making stylish e-bikes for nearly a decade and now offers a dozen models that appeal to all different types of cyclists from city commuters to off-road explorers.” – Extract from London Cycling Campaign’s Spring publication

Featuring the latest Shimano STEPS crank drive system the Connect more than impressed our London neighbours and cycle enthusiasts.

The motor is one of the lightest currently available on the UK market, weighing just 3.2kg. It slots neatly into the regular bottom bracket position, is nearly silent and feels incredibly smooth as it cycles through the modes.

Equipped with a lithium-ion Sony battery which charges from empty to full in roughly four hours and has a range of 70 miles the Connect can accommodate even the the most ambitious of commutes.

“The frame finishing is excellent with internal cable routing plus the integrated lights, rear rack and suspension fork & seat post to take the edge off any would be potholes.”
