Priced at £1,689 (including introductory discount), the Velosta V1 stands apart on value. While there are other heavier bikes available around this price, there's little that provides the features that the V1 offers at this level.
'I used to fear the hill near our home when carrying my three year old on the back, but the Velosta has made a huge difference - we zip up!'
Penny, London SE
'After leg surgery long walks became painful. I tried the Velosta and it seemed light and very steady It's made commuting into town so easy.'
'I'd tried a similar ebike from an established brand and it was really, really heavy. The Velosta is a lightweight (and much cheaper) in comparison and I love it!'
Creating a rock solid base for baby and child seats, the welded integral rack provides a versatile frame to clip, screw or hang any conceivable accessory.
Lending a far lower centre of gravity to the Velosta, this unique slide out 9.6ah battery pack means you'll never get that heavy toppling feeling standing at the lights.
A proper brake light operated when you pull the brake lever. May be swapped for a battery operated rear light (supplied) with both tail and brake function for night use.
We don't expect you or your child to worry about adjusting cable brakes after only a few outings. This hydraulic system means braking power is always there.
Headlights by Büchel provide brilliant lighting whatever time of day. Adjustable height to suit you.
The slide out battery pack (locked with a key) means you can leave the bike locked up and charge the battery more conveniently at home or office.
Delivering power to the rear wheels on pedalling - up to 15.5mph, with smooth response from crank mounted sensors.
The uniquely shaped battery pack is mounted low for reduced centre of gravity, not only making balancing easy, but being easily removable... it renders the bike useless to thieves.
Adjust height to suit different riders - never struggle to reach the handlebars! Makes parking and transporting the bike easier - with the seat dropped down it will fit under the kitchen table - and it will stand vertically too for narrow spaces.
We use generously sized Kenda K Rad tyres for extra impact absorption and greater stability than standard thin tyres. The K Rad is great for mixed use but we have a street only option in the Maxxis Grifter, which gives an even smoother, swifter ride on tarmac.
Clear information on an anti glare screen tells you battery life, distance covered and assistance setting.
To save space when transporting bike.
Frames are guaranteed against structural issues for 2 years and batteries are guaranteed for 6 months from delivery.
For years we wanted the flexibility of a bike that could be used by adults and growing children alike - and we set about creating an ebike that keeps you going happily, while being totally adaptable - suitable for adult, adult plus one - and it can also be ridden by a child from 11+.
