E-bike brand Volt rolls out 2022 generation of Regent and Connect models

Volt has launched the 2022 generation of its Regent and Connect electric bikes.

The 2022 Volt Regent is the “epitome of a classic step-through e-bike”, said the e-bike brand. It features upgraded suspension, improved brakes, and a standard battery that powers riders over 70 miles on a single charge.

Moving from a derailleur gear set-up to an internal hub gearing system sees the Regent now boast an intuitive twist grip system. A powerful and responsive hydraulic braking system also maximises rider comfort and safety, said Volt.

The 2022 Regent’s new SR Suntour suspension offers riders a lighter more responsive e-bike. The 2022 Volt Regent also has an adjustable stem, sweeping handlebars, and pannier rack with integrated lights.

The 2022 Volt Connect has technical advancements including the new Bafang M200 crank drive motor system and frame-integrated lithium-ion battery – coupled with Kevlar-lined tyres, lockout suspension and other rider benefits including various luggage carrying options.

The Bafang M200 crank-driven electric motor interprets rider data and adapts to deliver the necessary power in real time. The Connect’s highly responsive Tektro e-bike hydraulic disk brakes alongside its SR Suntour NCX suspension offer riders a smooth and safe ride, whatever the conditions. Its SKS mudguards and Spanninga LED lights come fitted as standard.

The Connect also has updated styling, smooth frame welding, and integrated yet removeable battery.

“The Volt Connect remains a stalwart in the Volt range, and we’re proud of the technical sophistication we’ve developed that will ensure riders a smooth safe ride through any conditions,” said Volt founder and owner, James Metcalfe.

“With the Volt Regent we revamped a classic e-bike built for those who want to get on and ride, with minimal maintenance.

“The team at Volt have taken every effort possible to ensure the latest iteration of these two models deliver a modern aesthetic and an even greater experience for riders. We can’t wait to get the public in the saddle and see their reaction.”
