It is vital that you regularly service your electric bike or your warranty will be compromised.
Your first service should be around 200KM just to check the spokes, brake cables, gear cables and lubricate the chain.
Then after this you should service your bike at 800-1000KM intervals.
- VOLT™ Bikes are warranted for 24 months with regards to batteries and mechanical and electrical components. This warranty does not include the misuse such as that which deviates from the instructions given in the operation manuals including but not exclusively, dropping the bike on to the handlebars, resulting in broken brakes or gears shifters, broken lights, worn brakes, punctured tyres, etc. The warranty also does not include damage to the battery if the manufacturer’s guidelines for charging, discharging and storing the battery are not adhered to.
