Low step through Dutch style e-bike
Dutch style electric bikes are growing in popularity in New Zealand - they're just so easy to ride, and they have a simple elegance and level of class that some other styles don't possess. Typical Europeans!
Dutch bikes usually have a larger (700c) wheel size which makes for a smoother ride over lumps and bumps in the track; a bonus if you share your usual limestone cycle trail with frisky cows that leave hoof sized holes and other kind of 'debris' behind them. Yes, this is a thing for us in Hawke's Bay!
What a shame to ride a lovely bike through that kind of mess - but never fear, when you get home just grab the hose and an old brush and give the bottom bracket area a bit of a clean off. It's fully sealed down there so no worries about getting water where it shouldn't go.
The Volterra has a lovely low step through frame (46cm off the ground) making it super easy to get on and off in a respectable manner. But hey if you're a dude you can still swing your leg over the back, that's fine too.
It's a seven speed internal hub at the rear giving a sleek look while ensuring that your chain can never fall off.
So where's the motor hiding? The 250W motor is positioned in the hub of the front wheel. Yup really, trust us, it's there. So stylish.
