Centauri S Key Highlights

The little design choices that make this model stand out.

We know it's an ebike, but we didn't need it to scream "I AM AN EBIKE". Our bikes take aesthetic cues from vintage cruisers and classic rides.
With the Enviolo internal gear hub, just twist the shifter to find your perfect gear. There's no such thing as a "missed shift" with this step-less system that provides a wide gearing range. Unlike derailleur gears, you can shift anytime - while pedaling, coasting, or at a stop.
The battery pops out with the simple twist of a key so you can easily charge it separately from where your bike is stored.

Every component, carefully chosen

No heavy batteries, overpowered motors, or clunky profiles. The Centauri was designed to perfectly balance performance, value, and looks.

Goodbye traditional chains.

  • Lasts 3x longer than a chain!
  • No grease, no grime.Doesn't stretch over time.
  • Whisper quiet and smooth as silk.
  • Maintenance free!

Hello Belts!

The battery is easily detachable from the bike with the twist of a key. Charge the battery from anywhere and leave the bike behind!

The Centauri S comes with hydraulic disc brakes with 160mm rotors to ensure maximum stopping confidence on the road.

The Centauri S comes fitted with cleverly thought-out mounting points for maximum versatility. Racks, fenders, baskets, boombox? No problem.

everyone can ride

Components & Specs

Full component specifications for our fellow nerds.

Enviolo Hub

Way better than derailleur gearing, the Enviolo TK continuously variable transmission hub features a 380% range and never needs adjustment.

MPF 6C Motor

We're fans of the strong and silent type, so we use an MPF mid-drive motor with all-metal gearing in an oil lube bath. It has 350-watt nominal power and 650-watt peak output.

Mid-Motor Battery

Our 375Wh standard battery provides 15 to 40 miles of range depending on terrain, assist level, and other factors. An upgraded 500Wh battery is also available for increased range and power. All of our batteries are removable and can be charged on or off the bike.

Class 1 / Class 3 Controller

Our mid-motor bikes can be configured with a Class 1 (motor assistance up to 20 mph) or a Class 3 (motor assistance up to 26 mph) controller.

Mid Motor Display

Our mid-motor handlebar display has 6 levels of assist plus walk mode, a backlight and USB power-out. In assist mode 0, your Vvolt can be ridden without motor power, just like an analog bike. In assist mode 5, you're getting the maximum power. Full speed ahead!


Hydraulic brakes paired with 160mm rotors provide ample stopping power.

Gates Belt Drive

Carbon reinforced belts from Gates® last longer than chains, operate quietly, and don't require greasing. No more unintentional chainring tattoos!


27.5" x 45mm tires with smooth tread for fast-rolling on pavement. Wide enough to tame bumps and offer increased tracking on gravel or hard-packed dirt.
