How far can I cycle on one charge?
This will depend on how much battery power you use, but a full charge will allow you to cycle up to 60 miles.
Can I use my E-Bike in the rain?
Yes, all Volt bikes electrics are safely housed to protect them whilst cycling in even the worst weather.
It is essential however that after riding in wet weather to remove the battery and dry the battery housing and terminals with a cloth or towel.
(Don’t fully submerge the bike in water or wash your frame using a pressure washer.)
And don’t let the risk of poor weather put you off taking the plunge – it rains a lot less than we think and there is excellent wet weather protection gear available!
What happens if I run out of battery charge while cycling?
The battery has four LEDs to show you the amount of charge left, you also have a digital reading on the LCD display. However if you run out of battery you can also pedal just like a standard bicycle.
