Volt Metro Ls commuter bike (Test rides available)
Evolved from the original and very popular Metro, the Metro LS is a low-step folding e-bike. With it's curved and slightly smaller frame, getting on and off the LS is now more convenient and accessible, making it an ideal choice for the smaller rider.
The Metro LS hosts exactly the same features of the Metro and can be folded in exactly the same way too. These features include Shimano Alivio 8 speed gears, Tektro brakes, SKS mudguards (front and back), pannier rack, kickstand and Spanninga lights. The twenty inch wheels come with Kenda Kevlar lined tyres with extra thick inner tubes to minimise punctures.
Powering the cycle is a 250W Bafang motor and Panasonic lithium battery capable of distances in excess of fifty miles (depending on riding environment and levels of pedal assist). The motor resides in the rear hub and is managed by our sophisticated V-Wave drive technology.
V-Wave ensures a smooth and enjoyable riding experience by managing the torque-to-speed ratio. With five different pedal assist levels riders can effortlessly accelerate to the motor's top speed of 15.5mph. The pedal assistance level can be easily set using the intuitive and ergonomically designed LCD computer located on the handle bar.
Essentially, the Metro LS offers a convenient, easy to ride, foldable e-bike. It is one of the smallest and most compact electric bikes available, making it perfect to store in small places, use for commuting or take with you on holiday or a weekend away.
The LS comes with a 2 Year full peace of mind warranty. There is also the option to buy a cover carry-case which keeps the folded cycle neat and tidy when stowed away.
