Volton Bicycles has designed and supplied quality electric bicycles since 2011. Founded in Chicago, Illinois USA.
With good design, better parts, and the best pricing, there is a Volton model to get you rolling.
As things warm up (finally!!), Volton bikes are starting to roll out. In fact, we sold our spring fleet of Tracker and, at this time, we are down to the last A Trail in stock. The models are on “backorder” until our summer fleet is ready to pack and ship.
Until then, we have a great deal on our Alation 500 and ST500 to get you moving to school and work. And if you are looking to take the scenic route, be confident your Alation is ready to rip your favorite single track.
Here’s a picture of an A-Trail Max eMTB heading out to Fort Collins, Colorado for some side-country trail exploration.

At the end of the year, things get busy. Working, building, trying to order parts that no one has on hand, sending stuff to paint, working at some attempt to streamline the manufacturing process…delivering bikes, wondering where those parts are, and finally getting the frames back from paint with nothing to put on em.
So as we get ready to release our new 27.5×3″ dual-suspension eMTB, the A-Trail, we will sit and wait until suspension and batteries get delivered. We are excited to ride this new machine and it will look and feel great.
Volton Bicycles affordable eMTB – the Tracker and A-Trail
After almost 2 years of planning and design, Volton is scheduling the release of the industry’s best built affordable eMTBs available at an affordable price. The Volton Tracker, a 27.5 plus hard tail electric mountain bike, and the A-TRAIL, a performance built, dual-suspension eMTB, is scheduled to begin shipping in early 2018.
That’s right, we aren’t releasing one top performing electric mountain bike but two models, to make sure that you’ll have the proper trail capable electric mountain bike to feel confident while exploring the paths less traveled.’
What did we do to build our affordable eMTB? We applied the latest in torque sensing motor technology, fitted a large capacity 48v 16ah battery pack, and spec’d the component kit with parts manufactured to the handle the demands of trail riding. that are priced well above the prices for Volton’s best eMTB models.
Whether you find yourself experiencing new alpine single track, exploring backwoods trail systems, hauling tools for trail maintenance, or scouting new hunting grounds, be sure to know that your Volton eMTB is up for the challenge and demands to ride on.
When I started building my first mountain bike, a 1999 Kona Roast, to excel under the rigors of Rocky Mountain single track descents almost 20 years ago, I never would have thought that the trip would have me building a better ebike for trail and off road enthusiasts.
Soon a well-built Volton electric mountain bike fitted with high performance components will be shipping to a shop or a friend near you for an affordable price.
