Velec, The Electric Bicycle Reference
A Velec bicycle offers all advantages you expect to find in a quality bike and much more! It is an electrically assisted bicycle, equipped with a battery that recharges in a few hours using a regular electrical outlet. On a Velec, the choice is yours: you can pedal a quality multi-speed bicycle, you can get pedal assistance from the electric wheel motor or you can be propelled by that powerful motor, without any pedalling. No longer will you face problems like headwinds, steep hills and fatigue on your way back.
More than a bicycle, it’s a Velec… A non-polluting and quiet urban mode of transport; it’s a way of keeping fit on your own terms; a way of getting to work without tiring while staying sweat free; a true “hybrid bicycle”: a marriage of human power and technology.
You will no longer have to dread steep hills!
Hills will no longer bother you as you ride your bicycle as the assistance of the electric wheel motor will allow you to easily get by all the slopes you’ll find along your way, without exertion.
