It’ s the first model developed by Vela, aiming to deliver a complete bike for daily use focused on 3 features:
– Low-maintenance with simple, but high quality components;
– Easy controls;
– Comfort and upright posture;
A 350W engine that offers up to a 20 mile range, fed by a battery that can be recharged in less than 3 hours by plugging the charger into the bike frame, or removing the battery and charging it anywhere else.
All systems are connected to the main battery, recharging the battery powers the following components:
– Front and rear LED lights;
– Alarm system;
– USB port for gadget charging.
Except for the USB port, these components keep running even after the main battery is out of charge due to the fact that they have independent batteries.
Before assembly we gather some of your measurements for some size adjustments and to select – out of 3 frame sizes – the best fit for your body type. We build a size 51 frame with 26″ x 1,5″ wheels, and sizes 55, 59 frames with 700c x 38mm (29er) wheels.
Our bikes were designed to comfortably fit people from 5’4″ to 6’5″.
Vela offers a 12-month warranty for all of its components, and a 5-year warranty for the 4130 Chromoly frame, which can handle a rider+cargo load of 300 lbs.
We need approximately 10 days to assemble, test, package and ship each bike.
