The electric bike market is a fast paced industry with advances in technology and design every year. In 2017 we will be continuing to advance our range with new technology, new design and new e-bikes. Here is a little bit of what to expect and look out for next year…
For 2017 VOLT will continue to expand the range of e-bikes as they release new models as well as bolstering the existing range.
After the great success and overwhelming demand for our limited edition series of Metro Colours and Bigfoot; next year will see an increased production of these popular e-bikes. Equally, the popularity of our new Shimano STEPS bikes in 2016 has led to the design and production of several brand new STEPS models for 2017.
We will also be making additions to our hub-powered e-bike range too. One example of this, will be the introduction of the all new Alpine & Alpine X, which you can get a sneak peak at below…
Technology for 2017
Every year VOLT continue to assess and develop the technology used in our latest range. This last year has been no different. With our 10th year anniversary approaching (2018), this year we’ve been looking harder and further at the technology of our e-bikes both now and for the future.
We’ve attended more shows, talked to more tech, design and bike specialists and visited more warehouses than ever before. While we can’t reveal too much right now, we’re very excited about what the next two years have in store and can’t wait to share it with you.
VOLT post Brexit referendum
While VOLT remain a UK based electric bike brand and manufacturer, there are still a number of bike components and materials that are sourced from overseas. For example the Shimano STEPS system and Shimano gears are produced and distributed from Japan. While the weakening of the pound is likely to have a direct impact on future costs, we will continue to strive to keep the RRP of VOLT bikes down and continue to offer the exceptional value for money we are celebrated for. In this climate of change we will also continue to monitor the markets and look for new innovations that can bring added value to both VOLT and our customers without ever compromising on quality.
Brand new for 2017
One of the first models to launch in 2017 will be a new Shimano STEPS folding electric bike. Based on the extremely popular Metro this bike will be one of the first crank powered, foldable e-bikes in the UK. This will set the benchmark for the next two years as we release more models, with new designs and new technology throughout 2017 and 2018 – our tenth year of trading!
