V-Wave is a unique technology developed in an exclusive partnership between VOLT™ and Bafang. The system forms the basis for an enhanced and customised cycling experience; managing and communicating between a number of components that ensure optimum performance.

Through 5 different power levels V-wave delivers smooth, calculated power assistance that provides superior riding. These 5 levels are controlled via an LCD computer which is conveniently placed next to the handle grip.

Whether you are cycling on flat ground, up hill or down hill, V-Wave ensures a consistent level of output that is economical to both rider and battery. It is this sophisticated balance between motor, battery and cyclist that sets V-Wave and VOLT™ apart from the competition!
