19 reasons to buy

  • A 250W MPF mid-drive motor exudes 500W of peak power and 80Nm of torque.
  • A torque sensor intuitively moderates pedal-assist to ensure smooth acceleration.
  • The Gates CDX belt drive is greaseless, quiet and low-maintenance.
  • An Enviolo TR internal planetary hub offers 380% of stepless gear range.
  • The Sirius is shod with mighty hydraulic disc brakes, front and back.
  • With an internally-housed battery, the Sirius sports a neat and clean aesthetic.
  • The Sirius’s flowing framework is a callback to classic cruisers and klunkers.
  • Vvolt backs the Sirius with a 3-year warranty against manufacturers' defects.
  • The Sirius’s battery is lockable and removable for security or off-bike charging.
  • With a 100mm suspension fork and room for knobby tires, the Sirius is versatile.
  • 27.5” wheels work well in urban and off-road environments.
  • Moderately upright geometry works well for city and gravel riding.
  • Acer’s Explova display and control unit is simple, clear and easy to read.
  • USB lights come included. The headlight connects to the Sirius’s display unit.
  • Kenda Kwick Seven.5 tires feature a mixed-tread that suits pavement and dirt.
  • With an internal stepless hub and belt drive, the Sirius operates quietly.
  • ‘Walk Mode’ helps you to walk the Sirius up steep ramps and driveways.
  • The Enviolo TR hub allows riders to change gears when stopped, without pedaling.
  • An optional upgrade unit boosts riders’ maximum assist speed to 28mph.

2 reasons not to buy

  • Due to its quality parts selection, the Sirius is not cheap.
  • This e-bike’s 375Wh battery capacity is on the lower end of the range.

Bottom line

Vvolt’s Sirius is a Class 1 e-bike that provides riders with pedal-assisted support up to 20mph. An optional ‘Warp Core’ upgrade lifts this to 28mph. The Sirius runs a 250W mid-drive motor that outputs 500W of peak power and 80Nm of torque. A Gates CDX belt-drive and internal, stepless, planetary Enviolo hub combine to produce a quiet, low-maintenance and durable drivetrain. High-quality components are specced throughout. This is not a gnarly trail-riding mountain bike but it is well-suited to gravel riding, dirt roads and crunchy trails. At 375Wh, the battery is on the lower end of capacity but still offers up to 40 miles of range. A stylish and well thought-out e-bike that’s priced accordingly.

Vvolt Sirius Electric Bike Review

All-in-all, the Vvolt Sirius is a high-quality pedal-assist Class 1 e-bike that can be upgraded to a Class 3 e-bike if you need extra speed… Very highly recommended.

Cool New Mid Drive, Belt Drive E-bike

Despite the battery, I’m a big fan. I really like the look. I love that it has a mid-drive. I love that it has a belt drive. I love that it has hydraulic disc brakes.

Vvolt Sirius E-bike Full Review: Mid-Drive, Belt Drive With Internal Geared Hub!

An electric bike like this is much more conducive to pedaling a little bit more… I’m a huge fan of belt drive e-bikes paired with an Enviolo internally geared hub… the biggest selling point is the low maintenance… The Vvolt Sirius is very close to my dream e-bike.

Vvolt Sirius Review: This Low-Maintenance E-bike Is Like Riding on a Cloud

There’s a whole lot to like here. While [this price] is no small change, the Sirius feels like it justifies its price. It’s a polished, no-nonsense e-bike with some of the smoothest pedal-assist I’ve tested in a remarkably comfortable design.
