Since launching the new Voima E-bike in June, we have been a little overwhelmed by the response. It’s pretty amazing and humbling to know that so many people can appreciate great design and be as excited about a bike as we are. Breaking the mould is what we do best and we’ve done it again with the Voima E-bike.
More is More™
The Voima E-bike has been in development for two years. When the idea for an e-bike was first born, our choice of motor and battery were the most ‘More’ option available at that time.
Fast forward to today, and things have changed. Technology has advanced and a better option is available that offers more! After all, More is More and our ethos for the Voima E-bike. When it comes to more, it shouldn’t only be limited to the capabilities of the bike. We believe it should also extend to all aspects of the Voima E-bike in terms of service and aftercare too. We have worked seriously hard in the last six months to improve our service for customers – There are no plans of slowing down any time soon.
With that in mind, we’ve taken the decision to go with an alternative motor and battery system that is new, cutting edge, and future-proof – the Bosch Smart System.
- Updated Bosch Performance Line CX drive unit
- NEW Bosch 750wh PowerTube 750 battery
- NEW Bosch E-Bike Flow App
- Bosch Global Service Network
- An integrated seat clamp
- Three bottle cage mounts
- LED handlebar-mounted remote
- Potential to use a battery extender
- ISCG-05 mount
- Suspension kinematics that works perfectly with a motor
- Elevated chainstays for less chain slap and ease of use
- SRAM Universal Derailleur Hanger
- The only 7075-T6 aluminum-framed e-bike in the world
- An exclusive Pole suspension platform and design.
- Double bearing links
So what’s new?
Along with a new motor system and battery, we’ve also made a few updates to the frame too;
Bosch Performance Line CX drive unit, 750wh Powertube 750, and global service network
A newly refined version of the Bosch Performance Line CX drive unit with a NEW 750wh Powertube 750.
With 85 Nm of torque, the new motor enables powerful acceleration after tight turns and obstacles at a low cadence and facilitates starting on an incline. The motor also provides support with high cadences for fast sprints too.
The NEW PowerTube 750 gets you even further on the trail! With a 20% greater range than the previous PowerTube 625, it’s ideal for long and demanding rides.
Along with enormous mileage, a long service life, and reliable handling the lithium-ion battery is also equipped with a battery management system that protects the battery cells from overload.
With service at the forefront of many customers’ minds, Bosch also offers a global, professional network of service centers for all of its products.
The Bosch E-Bike Flow App
The new motor and battery have a proven software application ready to go. The Bosch E-bike Flow App is not only cutting edge now, but it is future proof too.
The E-bike Flow app connects users with their E-bike and is the key to a Connected Biking experience. Compatible with both iOS and Android, users have access to numerous functions, it integrates with other apps such as Apple Health, and synchronizes activity data completely automatically.
A fully networked, handlebar-mounted control center that captures your all-important ride information easily. The LEDs are easy to see in sunlight, and the brightness of the display adapts to ambient light meaning that even in changing light conditions you’re never dazzled by the display. Selected riding modes are quickly recognized by the indicated respective color.
The LED Remote connects the Voima to the E-bike Flow app. You can access the all-important cycling data such as the duration of the ride or the distance traveled via smartphone and share it with other users. It is also possible to carry out software updates independently.
The LED remote can be individually adjusted to you and in addition to an attractive design, offers optimal ergonomics and intuitive operation. Attached to the handlebar, all buttons can be reached and operated perfectly with your thumb without the need for a separate stem or handlebar-mounted display.
An integrated seat clamp
We always focus on functionality and quality when it comes to our design – it’s the Pole Bicycles way. With our unique ability to design, develop and manufacture in-house, we have designed an integrated seat clamp system that best suits a premium product such as the Voima. No more seat clamp woes!
Three bottle cage mounts
Following in the footsteps of their other CNC’d brother the Stamina, we have managed to integrate enough space for three water bottles on the Voima frame. So whether you need a full three bottles of water on your ride, or two and a tool kit, the Voima gives you the possibilities to choose your way. All bottle mounts are Fidlock compatible also.
Battery compartment on the underside of the downtube
With a higher capacity battery, the question of how to fit a larger cell into the frame was raised. Although fitting a battery to the topside of the downtube made sense at the beginning for weatherproofing, the new battery design is sufficiently protected from the trail elements on its own. With that in mind and a requirement for more space to include a full range of frame sizes, the Voima now has the battery compartment on the underside of the downtube. Which has other benefits too…
Potential to use a battery extender
With the space now available on the top side of the downtube, there is not only the potential for three water bottles or tool storage but also the addition of a battery range extender! And why not? More is More after all. With the repositioning of the battery compartment and new and easier cable routing, the location of the charging port has been relocated to near the bottom of the seat tower. This has no impact on the frame design or the functionality over the original placement near the headtube. In fact, we think it looks better in its new location.
Absolutely NO change to the suspension design
Developed around the Sensei suspension system, the Voima E-bike capabilities have not been altered at all. 190mm of agile, efficient, and playful travel has not been changed or modified in any way. The Voima E-bike was always designed around this concept. The battery and motor, although an integral part of any e-bike, was never the single part that made the bike. Suspension performance was always the key when the Voima was developed. As we’ve said before, the Voima has been designed as the truest form of what we believe an e-bike should be – It has been designed and created as an e-bike from the ground up.
