We have two types of motors. TS Torque sensor mid drive motors measure the weight on the pedals - the harder you push, the more power the motor provides. This type of motor "knows" what you are doing with the bike - an intuitive way to power your journey. It is also street legal.
Bafang is the industry leader when it comes to high power off-road mid drive motors. It senses the moving pedals, it kicks in after a quarter of a circle (1/4).
A common question is which motor should I choose. If you weigh under 120kg, even a 250W mid drive at low gears can give you a significant boost up the hill. However, off road motors offer a tremendous amount of power.
Off Road Motor only Top Speeds (Data collected on flat Syd Roads. Rider 80kgs. For reference only)

Why Mid Drive?
Hub motors inside of wheels are more popular because they are cheap. But wheels with hub motors make the bike rolling resistance higher, turning resistance higher & off road riding feels silly.
Mid Drive motor is a great modern eBike invention which actually connects the motor power to the rear bike gears! This idea that a bicycle can have motor-connected manual gear system is fantastic.
Volt eBike Systems are professionally installed and tested by qualified engineers in Sydney with one year standard warranty on the motor and battery.
Volt eBikes are the best 'bang for the buck' electric bikes in Australia.

Volt Electric Bike Australia was founded in 2016 and set out to introduce high performance, stylish and affordable e-bicycles to the market. In 2018, VOLT Electric Bikes have been officially approved to be AUSTRALIAN MADE. We are super pleased as we worked extremely hard for it.
What makes us Australian ? People assume it means every component is made in Australia which will never be the case in today’s world. Most Shimano (Japanese Engineering) components are made in Malaysia, Most Schwalbe tyres (German Engineering) are made in Thailand… etc.
At VOLT, we design and engineer some components such as eBike frames, forks, ebike batteries…etc. We develop our ebike prototypes and manufacture them all in Sydney Australia (5 hours per bike) because we want to be “closer to be the production, the quality control & keep talented technicians around”.
