Vvolt announces new Utility Series of electric bikes

These Utility ebikes claim to fit every rider in the household, carry cargo and passengers with ease, deliver superb rider visibility, and require vanishingly little maintenance. 

Each Utility Family model incorporates a super-adjustable single-size frame, offering accommodating fit for riders from 4’9” to 6’4.” Powered by right-sized motors and batteries and equipped with belt drives and powerful hydraulic brakes, Utility models are on the lightweight side of cargo-style ebikes, ranging from 64 to 80 lbs. The front Cargo Module with an adjustable load bar offers many ways to bring your gear with you, and proprietary Multivision lighting maintains rider visibility and vision in all conditions. 

Utility Series Members:

Slice Lite

The essence of the Utility Family, with a super-simple singlespeed drive system powered by a rear hub motor. It’s the most simple and fun daily transportation we could imagine. Riders can use pedal-assist mode or twist the throttle for added boost when starting. That boost comes in handy when toting up to 40lbs of stuff in the Cargo Module, and the party keeps going into the night thanks to front and rear Multivision integrated lighting.
 Highlights:

  • Class 2 ebike | 20mph on pedal assist or throttle
  • 500wh integrated+removable battery provides up to 50-mile range
  • Torque, speed and cadence sensors provide smooth motor assist
  • 3″ tires front and rear provide passive suspension
  • Hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm rotors for safe stopping
  • 360º visibility with front and rear integrated lighting
  • Preorders for Slice Lite are open at $2049, with deliveries beginning in July. Each preorder includes a free front cargo module (a $200 value.)

PIE with the family

Slice DLX

Personal urban transportation, optimized. Don’t just believe us, check the results– it’s already won an IDA Design Awards Silver medal and made the final jury at the IF Design Awards. These honors are due in part to the shared attention to accessible sizing, ride quality and visibility shared by the rest of the family, but Slice DLX takes it to the max. We put the powertrain from PIE in a more compact package, offering more torque, power and range than you probably need, then topped it off with sleek integrated rear dropout lighting, premium wheels and powerful quad-piston brakes. Slice DLX will also feature premium finish options including paint-matched fenders and front cargo module. 

  • Class 3 ebike | 28mph on pedal assist, with a boost button for easy starts
  • 600+wh integrated battery | 80+ miles range
  • Torque, speed and cadence sensors provide smooth motor assist
  • GPS+4G connected smart system provides theft deterrent and enables OTA updates
  • 3″ tires front and rear provide passive suspension
  • Quad-piston hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm rotors for safe stopping
  • 360º visibility with front and rear integrated lighting
  • Premium colorways w/paint-matched accessories
  • Slice DLX will be available in late 2023, with a target price of $3999. Interested riders can join Vvolt’s Utility Fam waitlist for additional news as we finalize development.
