Velotric T1, we were delighted to find the bike carefully wrapped in safety foam and well-protected with other packaging materials. What impressed us immediately was the bike’s astonishing lightness, making it a breeze to lift and handle. Inside the package, Velotric had thoughtfully included a handy toolkit containing all the necessary items to set up the bike with ease. From essential tools to a charger, kickstand, phone mount, pedals, headlight, bell, and reflectors, they covered everything for a hassle-free assembly process.

Design and Build Quality
The Velotric T1 stands out with its sleek and stylish design, featuring a unique Frozen Blue or Crystal Black paint job that blends perfectly. The bike has been meticulously crafted with attention to detail, evident in the hidden wires, which contribute to its elegant appearance. The lightweight aluminum alloy frame makes it easy to handle, weighing just around 36 pounds, making it an ideal choice for urban commuting and beyond.
The Velotric T1 is powered by the Velopower E35+ drive system, which sets it apart with its smart and silent performance.

With a powerful 350W (peak 600W) motor and 45Nm of torque, the T1 can effortlessly handle most city streets and inclines.
Battery and Range
The e-bike is equipped with a 36-volt, 9.8 amp-hour battery, cleverly integrated into the 6061 aluminum alloy frame. The battery’s location is discreet, adding to the T1’s resemblance to a regular bike. Velotric claims that the bike can cover up to 70 miles on a single charge, making it suitable for longer rides and daily commutes without worrying about battery life.
Smart Features and Velotric App Integration
One of the standout features of the Velotric T1 is the fingerprint sensor located on the top tube of the frame. This sensor allows for secure and keyless unlocking of the bike, adding an extra layer of convenience and security for the rider. The T1 comes with a built-in ambient light-sensing headlight that automatically turns on when it gets dark. This feature enhances rider safety, ensuring visibility during low-light conditions without the need to manually activate the light. The Velotric T1 comes with a range of smart features that can be managed through the Velotric app.
These include GPS tracking, anti-theft capabilities, light-sensing headlights, and even crash detection (an upcoming feature). The app allows easy bike pairing and offers access to various settings, such as riding modes, fingerprint options, auto lock-unlocking features, and firmware updates.
Brakes and Tires
The T1 is equipped with Tektro 2-piston hydraulic brakes with a 160-millimeter rotor, ensuring reliable and powerful stopping performance. These brakes provide a safe and smooth riding experience, giving the rider confidence in various terrains and weather conditions.
The bike features puncture-resistant tires with a cool tread pattern, providing excellent grip even on flat surfaces. These tires contribute to a comfortable and stable ride while minimizing the risk of flats and punctures.
The T1 is classified as a Class 1 e-bike, which means it provides pedal assist only, and the motor support cuts off once the rider reaches a certain speed. This classification aligns with various regulations, making it suitable for a broader range of riding environments.
The e-bike offers three different riding modes: eco, sport, and touring. In eco mode, indicated by green color, the T1 provides gentle pedal assistance to extend the range. In sport mode (red color), the pedal assistance increases, offering a more responsive riding experience. Touring mode (blue color) offers a balanced assist for comfortable urban commuting.
In conclusion, the Velotric T1 Electric Bike impresses with its clean and integrated design, lightweight build, powerful motor, long-range capability, and an array of smart features accessible through the Velotric app. It’s an excellent option for urban commuters and riders looking for a high-quality, smart, and reliable e-bike. And moreover, it is designed to cater to outdoor enthusiasts and urban riders alike, offering a thrilling and smooth experience on all terrains.
