Momentum Introduces Voya E+ Commuter Bike Series
NEWBURY PARK, Calif. (Jan. 5, 2022) /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – Momentum, the lifestyle-inspired bicycle brand focused on urban transportation solutions, today introduced the Voya E+ series, its newest electric commuter bikes that make it fun and easy to ride instead of drive, and a suite of all-weather accessories. Weighing in at 39.7 pounds, the Voya E+ series includes two models–Voya E+ 1 and Voya E+ 3. Designed for the urban commuter, the Voya E+ delivers the effortless speed and agility of a modern city bike with an added boost of pedal assistance up to 20 MPH. Debuting a new EnergyPak Micro integrated battery, smart charger and lightweight motor, the Voya E+ is light enough to ride without assistance and features a clean design with no exposed e-wires.
“Our goal with the Voya E+ series was to create the ultimate lightweight electric commuter bike, so people can make fast work of hills and city riding without breaking a sweat,” said Phoebe Liu, chief branding officer of Giant Group, which includes Giant, Liv, Momentum and CADEX brands. “The slim design, packed with the latest E-bike technology, makes the Voya E+ the perfect bike for people who want a fun, easy way to get around town, whether to work or play.”
Industry-Leading Hybrid Cycling and Battery Technology
The SyncDrive Move rear hub motor with 25 Nm of torque provides natural yet powerful pedal assistance. With the ability to travel at speeds up to 20 MPH (making it a Class 1 category E-bike), the Voya E+ series allows riders to pedal with minimal effort even when accelerating, climbing hills or moving through traffic. The Voya E+ series also features SmartAssist technology that uses four sensors to adjust motor support to deliver seamless power integration. Only found in the SyncDrive series and unmatched by other bike brands, the technology delivers a supportive, capable, customizable motor that allows riders to focus on enjoying the ride without manual adjustments.
The Voya E+ series also launches the new EnergyPak Micro lithium ion battery and 4A smart charger. Manufactured in partnership with Panasonic to be ultra efficient and durable, the EnergyPak Micro is a small diameter battery fully integrated into the frame to offer the sleek look and ride of a traditional city bike. Weighing in at just 8.8 lbs and one of the lightest on the market, the battery can be recharged to 80% in two hours, and fully charged in less than 3.5 hours. The custom bottom bracket opening allows
easy removal and insertion for charging, replacing and storing the battery. When fully charged, the battery offers 250 watt-hours and a ride range of 25-45 miles. As with any E-bike, expected range depends on the ride mode, terrain, elevation, acceleration, load weight and other factors.
Sleek Lightweight Design
The Voya E+ series features an aluminum frame that offers a comfortable and responsive ride while the hydraulic disc brakes provide reliable braking power for the urban commuter. The Voya E+ 1 features a drop bar handlebar and an 11-speed cassette, while the Voya E+ 3 has a flat bar handlebar and 9-speed cassette. Both come equipped with a chain drive, hydraulic brakes and the ability to add optional accessories.
Momentum’s RideControl Go intuitive one-button controller is integrated into the Voya E+ top tube for easy mode selection and battery checks. Featuring three manual ride modes plus SmartAssist, riders have a simple and accessible way to choose their level of ride support. The rider can also connect the
RideControl Go to the Ergo 3 handlebar mounted controller as well as the RideControl app on their smartphone, which offers further metrics including elevation, cadence, rider power (watts), and functions including a quick maintenance check, adjustable power support, route planning and navigation.
Complete Accessory Solutions
The Voya E+ series’ optional all-weather accessories are also designed with the commuter or city rider in mind including a compact front rack, rear rack and fenders.
The Voya E+ will be available at select Momentum retailers in North America in spring 2022. Learn more and find your local retailer at www.momentum-biking.com.
