It all started in our garage with a mission. To bring North America premium electric bikes at half the price.
In the very beginning, like any startup company, the journey from prototype to end product was a long and complex journey. Our founder managed a global supply chain stretching from Vancouver, Canada to Ningbo, China. Being hands-on from beginning to end of our first production process was an invaluable learning process.
VOLTBIKE IN THE WILD
On a sunny day in the spring of 2013, our team watched – and cheered – as Voltbike’s very first bike were pedaled out the door by happy customers. Since that day we’ve shipped thousands to Voltbike riders all over North America.
THE VOLTBIKE EFFECT
Today Voltbike is situated on 6000 sqft free-standing warehouse facility in Surrey, BC, Canada and 2000 sqft shipping depot at Blaine, WA, USA. We ship non-stop, everyday all over USA and Canada.
WHY PAY MORE
Why indeed? We have invested a huge amount of the time and effort into our product line to ensure our customers receive the most reliable units at the lowest possible prices.
SAVE TIME, MONEY, THE PLANET AND HAVE FUN
Weave around town. Whizz off to work. Vroom to the beach. All our bikes are fun to ride and fully automatic, just pedal or twist and go.
To all of you, from all of us at VoltBike® - Thank you and Happy cruising!

THE VOLTBIKE OPERATIONHow we do it so well
VoltBike's main distribution center is a brand new warehouse facility and is located in North Surrey, BC, Canada. From this location, we serve entire Canada and ship bicycles and parts every day. Situated with 2x loading docks our warehouse is able to receive and ship at the same time more than a dozen bikes per day. This location is also open for test rides, repairs and service and also local pickups.
Unlike other companies on the market, at VoltBike we store all bikes in-house making sure the bike is available at the time of the order. This allow us to provide better customer experience and you wait less for your bike to arrive.
Once a new order is placed, each bike is individually inspected and tested. Our bike mechanics are doing complete mechanical tune-up. Performance test is executed on each of the electrical components. Once the bike has passed the VoltBike inspection process, it is then assembled based on your specific modifications, including upgrades and added accessories.
