Maximum power Intuitive delivery

Bafang G510 is just monstrous with nearly 4 times more power than a standard Bosch or Shimano motor. The bike is capable of doing 50kmh+ without breaking a sweat. We are proud of our own firmware eMTB 2.o – a two year effort to program & optimise how the motor responds to the pedalling pressure so the ride can be as intuitive & natural as possible

 

This mid-drive motor measures your pedalling effort at a frequency of up to 80k Hz via a torque sensor and two speed sensors. The result is that “the harder you push , the more power you get from the motor”.

Size matters

Up to 910Wh Premium Battery

Battery is the heart of every electric bike.  Depending on the motor power, every 100Wh is about 10km-15Km of real world range.  The removable & compact battery design means that the removing and installing is only a 3 secs job,

 

Battery power depletion is not linear unlike the petrol. Our optimised Battery-Management-System is built-in and aims to safeguard the battery use and ensures the longevity and potency of the battery during & after the most demanding rides.

Questions & Answers

 

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

Yes. You can (un-restricted version only). The throttle works like a mini e-moped ; please avoid to over-use the throttle especially the take-off.

 

  • How many years will the battery last ?

E.Bike batteries should last up to 4-5 years before dropping to 50% of the original capacity . It is a gradual process.

 

  • Do you have dealers in other cities.

No. Volition E-Bike Australia is a factory to consumer / direct sale manufacturer based in Sydney. We’ve hammered down the price to be the lowest possible.

 

  • What if I have a problem with my e.bike?

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 parts. We could also arrange a courier pick up for your bike 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
  • 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 how it works
  • Puts the stress on the bike chain; however, internal gear systems in general can 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 more powerful /of more torque than hub motors.

 

Industry Leading Bike Safety (Immobiliser)

VOLITION has successfully developed a wireless module to cut off (immobilise) the controller power. Without the remote, the thieves cannot turn on the bike, therefore rendering it unsaleable. The module is embedded in the motor system. Riders can lock and unlock the controller wirelessly within 10 meters.

More about the battery & charger

What is an E.bike battery ?

Voltage = Power

The controller & battery really determine the power level of an e.bike; not necessarily the motor. The controller draws the current. The battery holds the charge (voltage).  The broad conclusion is that the higher the voltage, the more powerful the e.bike is

This is why you will notice the power decrease as the battery holds less and less energy during use. A freshly charged battery is in its most “potent” condition.

 

Watt.Hour = Range

The misconception is that ampere.hour (Ah) is the battery’s duration. Watt Hour (Wh) is in fact the correct measure of size for a battery. In an approximate estimation, you can travel 10-15km for every 100watt-hours, based on an average of mixed levels of power and variation of terrain. Our numbers are real world figures based on customers’ feedback

 

E-Performance;

Like all things, batteries vary significantly in quality and engineering.  Some are just unsafe and scary. Firstly, the battery cells are not made equal. Cells are “farmed” and there are Grade AAA and all the way down to Grade C. The prices vary drastically. Unfortunately,  almost all highest grade battery cells are grabbed by car manufacturers in their exclusive deals. Premium E.bike batteries are made from Grade A or A- or B+. Cheap batteries tend to use lower grades of cells that tend to die prematurely or the power is lacklustre. One analogy is that if a restaurant wants the best grade of vegetables from the farms, it has to pay for it.

Batteries are made of lots of cells. How they are connected together, determines the battery’s overall duration in real world use and safety.  We have spent huge amounts of time researching and visiting battery factories. One can assume that the longer time the production line spends on a battery, the better & safer the battery will be.  We have very strict instructions and protocols with our partner factories as to how our batteries are assembled . We make sure that each and every single battery we sell, is as safe as possible. Sadly, we see countless extremely unsafe batteries from people who have purchased a cheap battery online and are now having problems.

 

Battery charging;

One common question we get is that should I care about how I am charging the battery. Modern (our) e.bike batteries have a BMS computer board inside to regulate the charging, discharge and prevent over charging and over-use. It also balances the voltage level of each cell. So with our premium BMS, The answer is “no need & just charge it when you feel like”

The charger determines the speed of charging. Fast charging is convenient. But it decreases the longevity of the battery because the “charging” is in fact putting the stress on the battery cells. The faster the charging, the more stress the cells have to bear. If you are not in a huge hurry, a 3 or 5amps charger will do the job just fine.
