Velec is a Canadian electric bicycle company based in Montreal (Quebec) Canada, that has been designing and selling products to the US and Canada since 2005. The R48M is a 48-volt mid-drive city cruiser that balances efficiency with comfort while introducing some unique drivetrain components. Namely, a Gates Carbon belt drive and NuVinci N380 continuously variable transmission (CVT). Belts tend to last longer than chains, produce less noise, and stay cleaner because they do not utilize lubrication in the same way. With just one 55-tooth chainring up front and a single 24-tooth cog in the rear, the belt remains tight and there’s no need for an external derailleur device that could get kicked or bumped at the bike rack. The NuVinci N380 offers 380-degrees of cadence options for effective climbing and faster-paced riding alike. You can shift ratios at standstill by twisting the half-grip shifter on the left or zip up to speed anytime by twisting the half-grip throttle on the right. It’s an intuitive product that offers excellent weight distribution, some fun extras like a USB port on the of the battery box, and some safety upgrades like lights, reflective tires, fenders, and bright frame color options.

These bikes are outfitted as non-throttle assist Class 1 eBikes.  They do however, have the option of throttle assist, but are still limited to other Class 1 eBike specifications.  Top speed with assist is 32 km/hr, and motor power of under 500 watts. With the throttle installed these bikes are not permissible in many local jurisdictions.  Please be advised that you ride them at your own risk. Please obey all local laws and ride carefully.
