When you want to ride on, ride Volton. ™
Volton Bicycles was founded in Chicago, Illinois in 2011.
Our vision is to establish Volton electric bicycles as a simple and affordable alternative method of transportation. Whether you are a daily commuter, a student, a delivery person, rehabilitating an injury or are just looking for a fun, new way to explore the great outdoors, we are passionate about developing and providing electric bicycles for you to use as a exhilarating alternative of mobility.
We formed Volton Bicycles after receiving very positive feedback on a power assisted electric bicycle developed for my father who underwent heart surgery and wanted an alternative to rehabilitation confined to indoor stationary equipment. This bicycle provided a great opportunity for him to be mobile and exercise while enjoying the beautiful outdoor bike-ways on a fun new form of transportation. The positive gains this bike provided and the great response we received motivated us to further explore the many benefits electric bicycles can provide.
With my years building and riding bicycles and my involvement opening up a bike shop focused on the mountain biking scene in Fort Collins, Colorado in 2003, I branched out and continued the 34 tradition of viewing e-biking as an inclusive activity for all to enjoy.
After a couple of years back home in Chicago and thinking my shop days were behind me, I was drawn back to the flame. Though the spark that started Volton involves some sadness, watching the response from those first rides and getting requests to build several bikes made me consider electric bikes as a function alternative to what was available.
By the following spring (2012) I decided to to apply better parts, better design, better performance and offer complete builds at a much more approachable price. Volton was up and rolling. Fast!
Today, we continue to dedicate ourselves to raising awareness of electric bicycles and pride ourselves in only offering a better eBike built with superior parts and featuring the power and controls to ride wherever the trip takes you.
Enjoy the Ride!
