Velectrix Ascent

2016 VelectriX Ascent 27.5

The 2016 VelectriX Ascent 27.5 Hardtail combines the wonders of the VelectriX frame with 650b specific componentry and geometry and then pushes the boundaries by adding a powerful Bafang 250watt rear hub motor together with a 11.5ah Panasonic battery proving pedal assist or throttle power up to 80kms range per charge. As a mountain bike alone the Ascent 27.5 is a superb choice, with Suntour forks taking the sting out of the trail with 100mm of travel, plus with their lockout function climbing will be a breeze, in fact who are we kidding you’ll be flying up the climbs with the motor.
