The VOLT™ AXIS is the first of its kind and truly unmatched in regards to it’s specifications. Equipped with a Shimano STEPS 250W motor, Alfine Di2 8-speed gear hub and combined with a Gates CDX Carbon Belt Drive system.

It will be the first to integrate all these technologies into one foldable electric bicycle, placing it among the most advanced commuter e-bikes on the market. The result is one of the smoothest ebike rides available and weighing 16kg one that can be easily stored away or lifted into a bus, train or car. (For convenience, when folded the bike will lock neatly together thanks to a system of strategically placed magnetic contacts)

The Gates CDX carbon belt drive system is constructed of stretch-free carbon-fibre tensile cords covered by a weather-proofing polyurethane shell. In translation, it is remarkably smooth, silent and much lighter than a traditional bike chain! Also, because it requires no lubricant, it is infinitely easier to keep clean and practically maintenance-free.

The 8-speed DI2 gear hub comes pre-loaded with fully-automatic gear shifting, providing fully automated gear changes at the touch of a button, removing the need to do anything but pedal. Allowing you to better enjoy a seriously slick and silent journey.

Shimano STEPS being the most lightweight motor system on the market coupled with a high capacity 36V Lithium Sony battery means you will be able to achieve 60 miles from one charge. With a lifetime of 1000 charge-discharge cycles the Sony battery will power the ebike for many updates to come. When software updates are available, we are able to quite simply plug the AXIS into a computer and upgrade it’s motor software.

On top of all the e-bike tech, the Axis comes with a set of chunky 20x2.1'' Schwalbe Big Apple tyres to withstand the knocks of daily use on the streets. Both the front and rear wheels are fitted with Shimano Alfine hydraulic disc-brakes to provide braking power you can rely on.

Official planned launch of the VOLT™ AXIS July 2017.
