Hola!! Reservé hace dos meses un cuadro de esta bestia, y me han enviado este mail (está en inglés), donde al igual que en la web ya actualizada, me comentan que ya no lleva Brosé, si no Bosch, no dan detalles de la capacidad de la batería aunque se podrá poner extender, y listan algún cambio adicional.
Texto que me han enviado:
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.
More is More™
The Voima 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. 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 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.
Unfortunately, this new system is under embargo until the 1st of September and we cannot divulge any precise details until then. However, we can spill some information - we just have to share the brilliant news! All production Voima framesets and complete bikes will now come with a Bosch motor and battery system!
So what’s new?
Along with a new motor system and battery, we've also made a few updates to the frame too;
⚡ Bosch motor and battery and global service network - a new refined version of an existing reliable motor unit with a new battery. With service at the forefront of many customers' minds, Bosch also offers a global, professional network of service centres for all of its products.
⚡ 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.
⚡ An existing proven software application - the new motor and battery has an existing proven software application ready to go. The Bosch E-bike Connect App is not only cutting edge now, but it is future proof too. Check out more information about the E-bike Connect App here.
⚡ Absolutely NO change to the suspension design - developed around the Sensei suspension system, the Voima's 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 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.
And all this good news comes at zero extra cost!
