Electric Bike Review – VOLT™ Metro Black


Metro Black Review

The VOLT™ Metro Black is of a slightly higher specification than that of the white model. The model has won its popularity due to the quality of the frame and its superb finish combined with the excellent and comprehensive components.

Mounted on the handlebars is a simple to use LCD power controller which has five different levels of pedal assistance as well as digital speed and odometer readings. There is also a controller for the ultra bright LED front light.

It has a powerful 250W maintenance free motor to power you along and this can be used for both pedal assistance or for free wheeling when you use the simple to operate twist throttle to control the bikes speed. Additionally 7-Speed high end Shimano gears are ?tted to make this a superb cycling experience.

Battery life is exceptional given that a huge 36V 16Ah Lithium Polymer battery is fitted. This will allow you to travel around 50 miles on medium pedal assistance which should be more than enough for even the most avid cyclist. The battery can be easily removed for charging or alternatively the battery can be charged whilst on the bike. It should take around 4-6 hours for a full charge.

Overall The Metro Black is a technically superb and strikingly modern electric bike.


We let Thiemo Antonczyk in London Bridge take The Metro Black electric bike out and put it through its paces. Here’s what he had to say:

“I purchased The Metro Black a month ago at Electric Bike Store London. The guys have been very helpful to choose the right ebike for me among the VOLT™ range available in store. I got tired with my way of commuting and wanted to stop on relying on public transport. Electric bike was a great idea as I don’t want to build up a sweat on my way to work but would love to enjoy fresh air. I can’t be more pleased with my Metro Black folding bike. It’s very light, really easy to ride and convenient to store. Despite small wheels it’s a neat performer too. ”
