With the Pulse proving a tremendous success, Volt is now launching this new low-step version. Pulse LS features improved accessibility for people of all sizes and a stylish new metallic black colour frame. All the specifications and quality that made the Pulse such a loved bike are still present, making this new model an irresistible combination. Flat tires are the nightmare of cycling, so the Alexrims 26″ wheels with Kevlar lined Kenda tyres will help you minimise tiresome flats, while SKS mudguards protect you against wet and muddy roads. So that your ride is even more comfortable, the SR Suntour NCX suspension forks soften the bumps on the road and the Shimano Alivio 8-speed gears allow a smooth and easy change between gears.
Because comfort doesn’t have to be a trade-off for power, the new SpinTech™ 250-watt motor will propel you to speeds of up to 15.5 mph and easily climb any hill without having to break a sweat. For a seamless transition between power assisted and non-assisted riding, the motor features “continuous spin” technology. Thanks to advances in battery technology, the SpinTech™ Panasonic battery with 1,000 full-charge cycles, offers a range of up to 60 miles, shattering what was possible just a few years ago. The waterproof LCD display keeps you in full control of all this tech and allows you to choose between 4 pedal assist modes at the touch of a button.
Being designed as a hybrid e-bike, the Pulse LS is optimized for roads but doesn’t have to be confined to them. The wide tyres and powerful suspension will ensure you have a comfortable ride even off-road.
