2021 Velec R48 Urban Step Through (fall edition)



The Velec R48 was designed for maximum distance.

It is one of the most comfortable electric bicycles on the market with a smooth 500W motor, front suspension fork and suspended seatpost, oversized seat, adjustable stem and a step-through frame. The battery is centrally mounted on the frame and comes with either a 48V/10Ah or 48V/14Ah capacity. It provides a smooth ride while facing strong winds and steep slopes.
This step through e-bike is lighter than the standard e-bike making it easier to place on a vehicle bike rack.
The 500w motor is ideal for people who want to travel long distances and tackle steep slopes and headwinds with less effort.
The reinforced step through frame makes the R48 more robust than similar step through models.
The R48 is ready to ride with included rear and front lights, fenders, rear rack, comfortable seat, ergonomic hand grips.
