Volton Alation 500 Review

The Volton Alation is a solid bike designed to offer great value. It’s an affordable, well designed and light weight electric bike that offers great power, doesn’t produce excess noise from the motor or rattling accessories.

The bike uses a 500 watt geared motor paired with a 48 volt Lithium-ion battery pack.The geared design motor provides more torque but doesn’t weigh as much as a gearless equivalent. This one runs smooth and stays relatively quiet but is noticeable during full acceleration and climbing. The battery unit powering this bike offers 11 amp hours of capacity. The battery pack is removable and can be charged on or off the bike. In terms of gearing, the Alation 500 offers seven speeds which is enough to climb but still reach higher top speeds on flats and downhills.

Some mentionable features of the bike are:

  • LCD computer is intuitive, shows speed, capacity and range and has a breakout set of buttons that are easy to reach when riding.
  • This bike is available in three color schemes and two frame sizes.
  • 26″ wheels provide room for fenders, offer leverage for climbing and improve maneuverability for technical riding.

The company is friendly and responsive and they provide great customer service and offer one year warranty for frame, motor, battery and electronics. Read the complete review from
