Viable, reliable, everyday transportation
Whether commuting to work or cruising the countryside, Voltage Cycles are ready for the demands of everyday use. The Sport is engineered to be tough, reliable, and easily serviced. The sleek steel frame is manufactured to handle the added weight and stress put on it by the electrical propulsion system and utilizes industry standard bicycle components. Components subject to normal wear such as tires and brake pads are all readily available and easy to replace. The propulsion system utilizes the latest battery technology, and delivers the power and range to get you where you need to go for pennies a day. The Sport can be fully charged in 4 hours using a standard 110V household outlet and deliver enough juice for a range between 30-40 miles of powered riding. Voltage has partnered with AllCell Technology for battery systems. Their patented technology produces batteries capable of over 5 years of everyday riding and re-charging before needing to be replaced.
Transportation for the new road ahead – Pedal, powered, or both
Hop on, start pedaling and away you go. The Sport rides like a traditional bicycle with the added benefit of power when you need it. Use the power to get up that steep hill, or through a busy intersection quickly; or use the pedals and power together to get exercise and greatly extend the battery’s range. Voltage Cycles have the power to perform whether pedaled, powered or both. Although the Sport offers power and performance, no license is needed, nor any vehicle registration or insurance.
