Arrive in style with this eco-friendly electric bike

Published July 25, 2018 7:00AM (EDT)

Electric bikes are spiking in popularity, and it’s easy to see why people are eager to hop on: pedal-assisted bikes save gas money and reduce your carbon footprint for urban commutes, they make hilly terrain easier to navigate, and they’re great for getting back into exercise after an injury (or if you’re not quite as young as you used to be). Of course, any new technology isn’t going to be cheap, but Pure Cycles Volta Electric Bike provides the full e-bike experience without the sticker shock of other brands.

The Volta makes city biking, long workouts, or weekend jaunts fast and fun. You can travel up to 40 miles on a single charge, and with a top speed of 20 miles per hour, you’ll get to your destination in a snap. The bike’s regenerative braking puts power back into the battery when you stop, intelligent lights turn on automatically when it gets dark out, and Smart Mode ensures you’re only using battery power when you need to. The Pure Cycles app includes an activity tracker to record your rides, and with the Volta’s anti-theft GPS you’ll never have to worry about someone taking off on your ride and getting away with it.

Pure Cycles Volta Electric Bike usually goes for $1,999 (that’s already about half the cost of e-bike competitors with similar features), but right now it’s on sale for 25% off at $1,499.
