Centauri SE

$3,299 $2,599 Save $700

Centauri SE is everything riders have loved about our perfectly balanced commuter bike and more. We added a new higher-capacity battery to boost the range up to 60 miles, a higher-torque motor to summit big hills in turbo mode, and improved rear wheel and accessory fittings. We also added more braking power, more durable tires, an easier-to-use display, and integrated lighting.

 
So what did we keep? It still has 28mph top pedal-assist speed, the amazing Enviolo internal rear hub transmission, our custom geometry for great handling, and of course the silent and maintenance-free Gates CDX belt drive.

Centauri SE Key Highlights

Our new 350w Ananda mid-drive motor boasts up to 120nm of torque, making for amazing climbing performance. This power boost allows riders to use lower settings for normal riding, reserving the top pedal-assist levels for the steepest roads.
Centauri SE gets up to 60 miles of range with the 490Wh battery, plus it's UL-2271 tested for peace of mind.
Bright front and rear lights are wired into the main battery. With bright LEDs and advanced mirrors and reflectors they use minimal electricity to provide maximum visibility so you can run them all the time without worry.
Real Customer Reviews

Gates® Carbon belt drive

Belt Driven

The Gates Carbon Drive belt lasts over 4x longer than a chain, and never needs oil, delivering smooth and quiet power to the pedals for thousands of miles. It's not a Vvolt if it doesn't have a belt drive!

Tektro Brake System

Reliable Stopping Power

Tektro hydraulic disc brakes run 180mm rotors for safe stopping in any weather at any speed, with the most common pad standard on the market for simplicity when it comes time for a fresh pair.

The Centauri SE's battery system is UL 2271 certified.
