Volt receives Red Dot Design Award for new London e-bike

The new Volt London e-bike has been awarded the 2022 Red Dot Product Design Award.

The newest addition to the British e-bike brand’s range draws inspiration from the needs of riders on the streets of the UK’s capital, from commuting to exploring. The single-speed e-bike is ideal for tackling the urban landscape, said the brand, designed to traverse city landscapes.

The Red Dot Design Awards is an international design competition that highlights world-leading products with outstanding design at their heart. The Volt London e-bike was selected as this year’s Bicycle Design winner.

Commenting on the award win, Prof. Dr Peter Zec, founder of Red Dot said: “Our international jury assessed a considerable number of products this year, as a record number of companies and design studios once again faced the professional judgement of our experts… the fact you emerged victorious from such a strong group of participants is testimony to the extraordinary quality of your product.”

The Volt London e-bike is set to launch to the public on 5th May.

“This award illustrates the hard work and attention to detail our whole team puts into the design of each and every Volt bike and we’re honoured that the design of the Volt London, our 10-year anniversary model, has been recognised by the prestigious Red Dot Awards,” said Volt founder and owner James Metcalfe.

“With the London, we set out to achieve a simple and sleek design that emulates the popular style of a single-speed ‘fixie’ bike but delivers the power and performance of a conventional e-bike.
