- Great entry level eBike- September 9, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] SWFT Volt eBike The SWFT Volt eBike… a great option for commuting or casual riding. First thing you’ll have to do when you receive your bike is assemble it. You’ll notice it comes partially assembled in the box so by the time you open it up, all you have to do is attach the stem/handlebars, front tire, pedals, and saddle. The instruction manual is pretty straightforward and very helpful in setting up for first timers such as myself. Build quality off the bike seems top notch. Ride quality is not too bad if you are riding on fairly even ground. You’ll notice a lot of feedback when you go over bumps or dips and you’ll feel everything as there is no suspension on the bike at all. This is the first time i’ve owned an eBike, so i can only compare it to my Giant Trance mountain bike. This eBike is single speed, so there isn’t much for the rider to adjust if riding without pedal assist. With pedal assist on, the ride is effortless. There are 3 different levels for pedal assist that riders can choose from. I usually choose level 1 as it’s pretty responsive and assists pretty well. On the right handle, there is a throttle that you can use to self-propel in case you don’t want to pedal at all. This feature is quite nice especially if you are going up steep hills or just want to cruise along. One thing to note about the throttle is that it is super sensitive, so if you want to go at a slower speed, you’ll need to gradually turn the throttle to achieve the speed you want to ride at or just go full out at ~20mph. The left hand interface is pretty nice as well. From here, You can toggle the headlight, set the pedal assist level, view various information on riding mileage, etc… Would’ve been nice if the battery metrics were shown in percentages instead of bars. Battery percentage would’ve been better for gauging the actual battery life left as opposed to bars where the battery life may not be as easily perceived. Onto battery life itself, i was able to get around 20 miles without any issues and the bike still showed around 2 bars left so not too bad at all! Overall, this SWFT Volt eBike is great and enjoyable to ride. Would definitely recommend to anyone that is looking to get an eBike as a daily commuter or casual rides.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Fun, fast, built for tall riders- September 8, 2021
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The SWFT Volt e-bike is my first electric bicycle and my first new bike in a long while. A couple things to know upfront is that this bike is designed for riders who are around 5’10” (178cm) or taller and that there is a bit of assembly required, since it comes flat packed in a shipping box. The bike comes with the tools you’ll need to put the bike together (three Allen wrenches and a multi-wrench) and generic assembly instructions. While a QR code in the manual appears in the “Assembly Tips and Videos” section, as of this review’s writing, the page it points to doesn’t yet exist. Thankfully the written assembly instructions in the manual are pretty easy to follow, consisting of installing the saddle (seat), attaching the handle bars to the stem, attaching the front wheel to the fork, and installing the two pedals to the crank. Assembly took me about 20 minutes total by myself and charging the bike up for the first time took about 5 hours. The bike itself weighs a little over 40 lbs and is rated to carry a rider/load weighing up to 220 lbs. The frame of the bike has a sturdy construction, and the battery for the 350 Watt motor is housed inside the down tube, which is wider than a regular bike’s but low-profile enough that it looks and feels very much like a manual bike. The kickstand is also wide and chunky and easily supports the bike when freestanding. The bike is single-gear, and the 700c x 28mm road tires are suitable for use on smooth, paved surfaces, but not designed for off-road terrain like nature trails or grass. The bike comes with four safety reflectors: one on each tire, a red one on the back, and white one on the handlebars. The LCD for the electronic controls sits on the left-hand side of the handle bars and shows you the remaining battery life, current travel speed, distance traveled (trip/total), travel time, and certain types of error icons. It can be set to display English or metric units. There’s also a powered headlight that runs off the motor’s battery that you can activate by pressing and holding the “up” button on the display. Note that if you turn the display off, the headlight will power off as well. Since I’m a bit shorter than the recommended rider height, adjusting the seat height to the lowest setting still didn’t allow my feet to fully touch the ground when stationary. Although, once I’m on the bike and moving, it was less of an issue. The electric motor is turned on by pressing and holding the power button on the control display. When riding without the motor on, it just feels like a normal bike. Activating pedal-assist even at the lowest of the three settings, makes pedaling significantly easier, since it feels like there is less resistance, akin to switching to a lower gear on a multi-speed bike. Increasing the pedal-assist level gives you more motor power and greater assistance. One thing to keep in mind is that pedal-assist doesn’t propel the bike forward on its own; you will still need to pedal to keep it engaged, and it tops out at 19.8 mph, providing no assistance at higher speeds. You can also twist the half grip throttle on the right-hand side towards you to engage fully automated propulsion, without the need to pedal. The thrust from the throttle is instantaneous and can be a little disconcerting at first as you get a jolt of power and speed. However, it’s really nice to be able to take a break from pedaling and just cruise by enabling cruise control (press and hold the “down” key while travelling above 5 mph), or use the throttle as needed for short bursts of speed, for example to help you climb steep hills with minimal effort. The power-assist can also be used when walking your bike at under 2 mph. The brakes for the bike operate smoothly and were easy to adjust and calibrate, but note that using the brakes frequently with power-assist will deplete the battery faster. Overall, I found the riding experience on the Volt to be super fun and exciting. The bike is easy to assemble and ride, and the motor lets me go faster and farther than I typically would on a manual bike. The battery life on a single charge is great, providing up to 32 miles of travel on a single charge, so I can worry less about getting stranded due to exhaustion when riding for longer distances. You do have to maintain the battery though, by charging it at least once a month, and the operating efficiency of the battery may be impacted by environmental factors like ambient temperature. While the bike is water-resistant, to prevent water from damaging the electronic components you have to be mindful that the charging port is always covered by the silicone port plug, which in my opinion doesn't really ever feel like it seats fully/securely. If you live in an urban or suburban environment with lots of paved roads and lanes for biking, this e-bike would be awesome for getting around, commuting, and leisure rides. I wish that the bike was proportioned a bit smaller to be accessible to shorter riders, like myself, but taller riders should have an easier time with handling, control, and comfort with this e-bike model.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Best E Bang for the buck- December 31, 2021
Exactly as advertised and much more. I did months of research test drove many E Bikes and this is just as the more expensive types. The pedal assist is extremely powerful for a road bike. There are 2 other E Bikes that out did this by about 20% but they cost 2k or more so for the money tou can not go wrong. Seat reflector relocate and 5'9" me rides with ease. BUY THIS E BIKE YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT !! My roommate bought his a day laterYes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great ebike for the price .- April 17, 2022
Put an adjustable stem to raise the handlebars (all wires where long enough) new seat and 35mm tires on it (actually could have gone bigger ) was a great bike to start with now it's even better .Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
