The VOLT™ Pulse Hybrid E-bike is one of the latest 2016 models and features some amazing technology and design advances.
One of the best electric bicycles available, the VOLT™ Pulse proves popular with all types of riders. Stylish design and powerful 250W Bafang motor means it looks great and can take you almost anywhere.
Hybrid E-bikes are designed to be comfortable on road and on light off-road routes, this bike is perfect for both. You’ll look great riding in the city or the country.
The 250 Watt maintenance free Bafang Power Motor ensures this electric bicycle can comfortably take you up any hill and makes easy riding against strong winds. But if you choose to ride without power assistance, the Pulse is a great ride with pedal power alone.
New for this year, the VOLT™ Pulse features "V-Wave" technology, the most customisable riding system available for electric bikes. V-Wave is an intuitive PAS (Pedal Assist) system allowing riders to adjust the power of the electric bike to best suit their riding style. V-Wave gives riders the ability to choose how quickly or slowly their bike accelerates, and monitors the pedalling efforts of the rider to release power when it’s most needed. V-Wave also increases battery and motor efficiency giving you more miles on each charge, and reduces the sound levels of the motor to near silent.
You have a choice of 5 PAS speed settings (0-5) or you can simply cruise without pedalling using the easy twist thumb throttle. With a top speed of 15.5mph this hybrid electric bicycle will get you to your destination fast.
All the components used on this bike are high end: from Shimano Alivio gears to Tektro Safety "Power Cut" Brakes, guaranteeing you a reliable, fun and very safe ride. The technology side of the bike is maintenance free and very reliable, meaning you can take your electric bike in for routine servicing at any good quality bicycle shop throughout the UK and Europe.
The Volt Pulse comes as standard with a powerful Panasonic 36v Standard Lithium Polymer Battery (60+ miles) with an optional 36v Large (80+ miles) battery upgrade. Lithium Polymer batteries are the best batteries for electric bikes.

"I spent 18 months researching electric bikes before selecting Volt. I've not had a flicker of regret since. Owning the bike has been utterly transformative. I live 9 miles out of my nearest town and was formerly highly reliant on a very low level public transport system, I now think nothing of jumping on my bike and 35 minutes later I'm in town (actually quicker than the circuitously routed bus!) The bike itself (a Volt Pulse) has been totally reliable, looks great, and has drawn many positive comments. One minor issue I raised with Volt was remedied with a single phone call, a chat, some easypeasy technical guidance (I actually don't know much about bikes) and I was off again. Great bike, great company. Just go and get one!"
"I phoned for advice and received what I was after. I also required a replacement rear light and this was dispatched directly. Thank You."
George And Thanks For Your Order
"I will start by saying that I am not the fittest bloke in the world but at 56 everything still (just about works). However I had no plans to test my knackered knees on a bike! We recently bought a motor home and wonderful as it is it became apparent that to maximise the experience we need to be able to explore the areas we land in. Lycra clad mountain biking didn't appeal but since we already had a bike rack on the new van we started exploring the electric bike option. They say you have to kiss a lot of frogs and that is certainly the case here. Bike shops support particular companies (normally because they are franchising to that company based on the cost of buying lots of different stock in) and they will champion these and often lie in doing so. Beware people always insist on s test ride! We did and rode loads. The volt was streaks ahead of the rest. It will do as much or as little as you wish! It also has an override (very few of the others do) which gives you an extra boost of power by pushing a lever helping you get out into busy traffic for example. Beautifully built ( I have a pulse (!) and my partner has a Burlington) .they all claim long battery charge ( mine claims 60 miles on a charge) you need to take these with a pinch of salt as there are too many variables to make this accurate. Always assume less and buy accordingly as this is a factor in price."
Mr J SMERDON
"A quality bicycle with quality components throughout. Looks good and performs very well indeed. I would highly recommend to anyone thinking about an electric bike"
"Since I have no criticism of my Volt Pulse bike, there is little I can add to the title. I cannot recommend the company and this product too highly."
"Very happy with my new Volt Pulse bike. Arthritis was beginning to limit my range with a normal bike."
"My first look into the world of electric bikes only started about 6 weeks ago, I googled electric bikes and was overwhelmed with the amount of options on the market. After many sleepless nights sat up searching for alternatives to buying a second car and keeping fit at the same time I stumbled across volt, and I never looked at another site after finding them. First of all what hooked me was their reviews and now here I am writing one of my own!
From the second I laid eyes on the pulse I knew it was the bike for me! It's looks, it's practically, it has everything the every day commuter could want!
I had to find a bike suitable for tackling the Cornish country roads that would I would face on my way to and from work so I wanted something with road speed but good suspension for tackling all of the bumpy untreated roads and this ticked that box with the added extra of having pedal assist for helping me up the rather steep hills when I'm carrying everything I need for the day on the pannier rack. After a lot of staring at the photos on the website I called the nearest store that stocked the bike and immediately asked for a test ride. After being taken back once again by its good looks I sat on the bike and set out on a test run and the second I put my foot down on the pedal I was greeted by a rush of power from the motor! I searched all over town for the steepest hill and climbed up it with ease! I rushed straight back to the store and agreed to take the bike on volts 0% finance which brings me to the next best part of buying from volt...
The team at vault were probably the most professional and helpful customer service team I have ever dealt with! From arranging the finance to letting me know when my bike would be ready to ride away it was an absolute pleasure. I cannot recommend them enough to anybody looking to buy an electric bike. Keep up the good work!
I've now had the bike for about a month and I have used it 5 days a week in all weather for commuting 20 miles a day and up lots of hills and bumpy roads and I'm still as excited every morning to get on it!
I carry uniform, stock and lots of extra gadgets on the bike and i never struggle to make the journey to/ from work without even breaking a sweat!
I charge the battery at work and it gets me home and back there no problems at all!
I have never written a review on a product before but since it was the rave reviews on this bike that helped me make my decision I though it more than fitting to share my experience with volt in hope that it will encourage others to buy from them as well!
Well done volt! Keep up the good work!"
Mr Michael Bennett
"I bought a Volt Pulse e-bike in August 2014, and use it daily to go to work (only a 30-40 mins ride each way, but up some steep streets), and too tight for time - especially in the mornings! - to change from sports gear to office wear. The progressive assistance from the motor works very smoothly, and the 1-5 settings are ideal for my use (rarely use above 3, and mostly 0-2). The price makes it very competitive compared to its similar Continental EU rivals. The battery holds its charge wonderfully, in one case maintaining the same charge for over 6 months when a non-bike related injury kept me off the road. Handling is superb, and the bike looks great! It receives many compliments for its prettiness, its sporty looks and discrete battery/ motor (most people don't realise it's an e-bike until they wonder "How did that older-looking guy go past me up the hill fairly fast without gasping for breath?" :-) ). Great service when I bought the bike at Volt's London HQ. Lyle kindly took the time from his own weekend free time to set it up for me, when I'd only decided that very same to buy it, after having done a trial ride. Keep up the fantastic work!"
Mr Michael Bennett
"Just acquired my Volt Pulse electric bike. Delighted with it. Haven't had time to take it on a decent long run yet, but have managed to do a lot of shorter runs - instead of walking, or to be more honest, taking the car, to my local paper shop, I now take my bike for the 1and a half mile trip. Get the benefit on the way back, when instead of pushing my previous bike up the fairly steep hill to my house, I simply engage power level four and cruise up the hill. Looking forward to doing longer day runs.
My wife already had an electric bike, a Raleigh Motus, which she loves. Quite a bit more expensive than the Pulse, but more of a town bike. It has a couple of features though which the Pulse doesn't have. For security, the computer control unit is portable and detaches easily from the bike, good to take with you if leaving the bike parked. The battery is also easier to remove, again for security. There are free software upgrades too. However, for style, performance and value for money, the Pulse is hard to beat."
"Bought a Volt Pulse for a 12 mile-a-day commute. In my forties and 20lbs overweight so hoping this will help. Lyle and his company were fantastic. I emailed them to say I needed Friday or Saturday delivery and they suggested they deliver to a local bike shop and pay them to set it up for me. I live virtually opposite Lockes in Sandwich so this made a huge amount of sense. VERY happy with my bike. Paired with a set of Red & Black "Ortlieb City Rear Roller" panniers it really looks "the business". Pleased to say you still have to put some effort in to maintain a steady 25km/h - but the motor is amazing - really puts a smile on your face - and the ability to cruise on the thumb-throttle whilst you get your breath back is great. Also can admit I enjoyed overtaking some racing bikes on a hybrid as an overweight 40-something perhaps a little too much :-) Great product. Great company. Highly recommended if you can afford it - can't see how you would be disappointed."
"My partner and I spent quite some time in sleuthing which electric bike to buy and we came across the Pulse and the Burlington. We called Lyle in the week to make an appointment for a weekend test ride of the electric bikes and requested that he build the two bikes as we were 99% sure we were going to buy them When we arrived we found him knowledgeable and friendly. He took us for ride around the streets and at each stop he pointed out more features about the bikes. Not once did he try to "sell" us the bikes, which I found very professional We purchased the two as planned and are thrilled with the quality of the bikes and the professional approach by Lyle I would definitely recommend anyone wanting to buy an electric bike to give them a try, I am sure you will not be disappointed"
"I recently purchased a Volt Pulse electric bike from this company and I have to be honest that before I made the purchase I didn't really know what I wanted, however the people I spoke to on the telephone were knowledgeable and pleasant and gave some very good advice. I decided to order from them and despite living far from London I was kept fully informed when my bike was going to be delivered and the guy who dropped it off went through everything with me despite it pouring with rain and that he had to drive 300 miles north afterwards. I would definitely recommend dealing with this company. I am very pleased with the bike itself and the quality of build and materials fills me with the confidence that it has been built to last."
"After watching (on U Tube) the guy going up the hills at Cairngorms, I was hooked (and the music is good also) I am 74 yrs old, 16st and have not rode a bike for 40yrs. I bought the Pulse 3mths ago. I live at the top of a hill in a village surrounded by hills. 2 minutes from my door I am in the countryside so have ridden the bike along country lanes, through woods, old railway tracks and into Newcastle. I try to average 20miles and on this bike find it easy going especially the last hill to my front door when the motor kicks in and feels like a hand in the centre do my back urging me on. People get the wrong idea of electric bikes, they laugh and think you just sit there but after having a try they realise you have to pedal or it stops, so you are exercising. After looking at various bikes I find The Pulse is manufactured to an extremely high standard and the after sales follow up is very good. This bike is just BRILLIANT"
"Purchased the Pulse model some days after test ride. Lyll was very helpful and no pressure to buy and even set bike up ready to ride when I called back a few days later. Three months has passed and over 1000 miles later, bike is working perfectly. I am pleased with performance and distance covered between battery charges. I tend to use highest setting most of the time and still managed to cover maximum of 54km, though usually charge battery 20 to 30km to prolong battery life"
"VOLT™ bike is really amazing. I live in Enfield and work at Knightsbridge. This long distance I cover by my VOLT™ Pulse bike. Whatever, the weather or road conditions are, it doesn't matter. I enjoy my cycling without any tiredness. I love my bike."
"I am very pleased with the VOLT™ pulse electric bike i am diabetic and need to keep fit so i ride the bike most days from sidcup kent to peckham london would recomend this bike thanks electric bike store"
"The VOLT™ Pulse pedelec bicycle has been a revelation. It does everything claimed. Steep hills are easily climbed, the controls are childsplay and the cycling is fun. I find it doesn't impair fitness training as the motor is easily turned off and conversely easily turned on if required. The back light is excellent but the front light is a little dim off road but apart from that everything is brilliant. Its a pleasure to ride."
"Spent a lot of time trying loads of different brands and the VOLT™ Pulse was by far the best. It rides really smoothly and is not as heavy as the others. Everything on the bike is high spec and it looks great too. Thanks"
"Just had a bike delivered in Cornwall. Excellent company, a pleasure to do business with. Love my VOLT™ Pulse, it is by far the best looking hybrid electric bike I have seen (and I've looked at a lot!) It also performs above and beyond what I expected and tackles the Cornish hills and cycle paths with ease.
Electric Bike-store what can I say ? I did a lot of research before buying and and spoke to a lot of stores and these guys stood head and shoulders above anyone else. High recommend both product and Store you will not regret it."
"Just rode my new VOLT™ pulse electric bike home and very happy. I tried a lot of different bikes before this one, many seemed not as robust and as smooth as this one. You guys clearly know your stuff and were very helpful so thanks!"
