Electric bike specialist Volt has launched the second-generation of its range-topping Infinity hybrid e-bike, which it claims is the most advanced machine it has yet developed.
The new version of the firm’s premium hybrid model is prices from £2999 and features a raft of updates that mirror those recently made elsewhere in the London firm’s line-up such as the new single-speed Volt London.
The Volt Infinity retains a 250W Shimano Steps central crank drive system, which is paired with fully automatic eight-speed electric Shimano Alfine Di2 gears. As with all e-bikes in the UK, the electric assist is offered at speeds of up to 15.5mph.
The 504Wh battery is built into the frame and offers 90-plus miles of electric assist. It can be charged on a domestic connection in around three-four hours.
The Infinity feature a 19in aluminium frame and sits on 28in wheels with Schwalbe tyres. There is also Suntour fork suspension and Shimano S700 Alfine hydraulic disc brakes. The bike weighs a total of 23.6kg including the battery (21kg without).
Other features include a key fob immobiliser, Velo saddle, Spanning lights and an Abs integrated frame lock. The Infinity also features a Shimano cycling computer which allows riders to control the electric assist and lights.
Volt boss James Metcalfe said that the reworked Infinity “reflects Volt’s commitment to iteration and improvement in every step of the process”, adding that the goal was to “create a fully automatic bike which delivers a premium experience for every rider.”
