Max Rider Weight:
The VOLT™ Pulse Hybrid E-bike is the latest 2014 model 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 2014, 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 Kingco 36v12Ah Lithium Polymer Battery (55+ miles) with and optional 36v16Ah (80+ miles) battery upgrade. Lithium Polymer batteries are the best batteries for electric bikes.
As with all VOLT™ electric bikes, the Pulse is fitted as standard with high end components throughout:
With the VOLT™ Pulse you are guaranteed the best riding experience at incredibly good value, and with the hybrid design this really is a go anywhere e-bike.

"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 "

"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!"
