Battery is the heart of an

910Wh Premium Battery

Our Batteries (measured in Wh) are greater than most e.bikes out there. It is important to know when comparing e.bikes that the cost of the battery often accounts for 40% of an’s price. If those 400wh/500wh battery e.bikes are “studios”, our 910wh/1000wh bikes are “penthouses”.  Dollar for dollar or Wh for Wh, our e.bikes easily offer the most amount of value.


Another thing sets us apart is that we “map” & engineered our own batteries. Most batteries use similar cells such as Samsung, Sony… etc which we can not make them any better ourselves. The performance difference is achieved in how they (up to 70 cells) are assembled; from the quality of materials to the welding & protection of the cells. Our team visited the factory in China and made our own assembly & quality protocols so each battery is made to our highest safety and performance standard.

Questions & Answers
  • Can I just use the throttle and not pedal at all ?

Yes. You can with the un-restricted version only. The throttle works like a mini e-moped ; but it’s not recommended to use the throttle only to take off nor for an extensive long periods of time. It is an e-bicycle after all.


  • How many years will the battery last ?

E.Bike batteries should last up to 5 years before dropping to the 50% of the original capacity or even lower. The “best” period is the first 2 – 3 years.


  • Do you have dealers in other cities.

No. Volition E-Bike Australia is a factory to consumer / direct sale manufacturer based in Sydney. Direct-sale means lowest prices possible.


  • What if I have a problem with your

Most parts are just regular bike parts. You could get help from any bike store. If you are experiencing any electrical issue, we can remotely diagnose the issue and send the replacement. We could also arrange a courier pick up and have it serviced in Sydney.


  • How can I put the bike together from the box.

We have a short video. We will have also supplied basic tools in the box for you. You could also seek help from a local shop.

Mid Drive vs Hub Motor

There are mainly two motor systems on the market


New e-motor and battery trends from Eurobike 2019: Amprio, Bafang ...

[Mid Drive]

  • Produces a lot of torque utilising the bike’s gear system for the hill climbing and efficient riding. All premium e.bikes use mid drive systems
  • The motor is light weight, centred and a part of the frame; thus, no negative effect on the suspension performance
  • Requires some hours on the bike to learn and understand the system
  • Puts the stress on the bike chain hence regular chain /cassette replacement is needed; however, internal gear systems solve this issue.



FSA System rear hub e-bike motor powers road, gravel, commuting ...

[Hub Motor Drive]

  • Affordable & popular on entry level e.bikes
  • protected & impose no stress on the drive system
  • Poor leverage. Imagine grabbing the hinge of a door to open it instead of the door nob
  • Unsprung mass which means it negatively affects the suspension performance
  • Tyre / tube change is a hassle


[ What do we love mid drive motors ? ]

  • better suspension performance, better handling, better weight distribution
  • very natural pedalling feeling
  • power! mid drive motors are much more powerful than hub motors.


E.bikes are the future. They are extremely practical, useful & fun to ride !
