The VelotricT1 is a smooth and lightweight ebike that sheds all the bulk that usually comes with ebikes, and piles on the tech. Ebikes are a great way for people to get out and enjoy some fresh air. However, many people refuse to use ebikes due to the fact that they won’t get much exercise. With the VelotricT1, it bridges the gap for those who want an ebike and a decent workout. TheT1 is a lightweight class 1 ebike so you have no other option but to pedal to move the bike. With its premium torque sensor and road bike geometry, you can pedal it without pedal assist perfectly fine, and when you get to a hill, you can turn up the pedal assist to help you out.

How much does the VelotricT1 weigh?TheT1 weighs only 36 lbs tieing the KBO hurricane for the lightest ebike we have reviewed on the channel. I can easily lift theT1 with one arm so if you need to carry it upstairs, lift it into a vehicle, or mount it on a rack, it shouldn’t be an issue. The best part is that if you run out the battery, the bike rides perfectly fine without pedal assist. TheT1’s geometry is on point and it’s not challenging to get it moving since it is so lightweight.

- Track your bike via GPS
- Theft alert when bike is moved,
- Track your rides
- Enable on auto-unlock when your phone is nearby
- Enable the light sensing headlight
- Track the numbers of calories burned
- Program your fingerprints to unlock the bike
- Adjust riding modes between City, Adventure, and Max
Is that really an ebike?When Jimmy’s wife and son first saw the VelotricT1 they asked if it was an ebike. The frame has a battery built into it and with no throttle or display, theT1 looks like a traditional bike. If you live in an area where people hate ebikes, theT1 is the perfect bike. TheT1 doesn’t look like an ebike and the motor is so quiet that I can’t even hear it as a rider in the highest pedal assist level.
What is the water resistance on the VelotricT1?TheT1 has an IPX6 water resistance rating. IPX6 means theT1 can resist high-pressure, heavy sprays of water. You should be able to ride theT1 in heavy rain with no issues at all. The nice thing is with no display or throttle, there aren’t a lot of places for theT1 to be penetrated with water. Just make sure to close up the charging port after charging.
What type of brakes is on the VelotricT1?TheT1 features TEKTRO HD-R280 hydraulic brakes with 160mm brake discs. I love TEKTRO hydraulic brakes and prefer them over Zoom ones. A lot of budget ebike brands choose to use Zoom brakes because they are cheaper than TEKTRO brakes.
What type of sensor is on the VelotricT1?TheT1 features a premium torque sensor. I prefer torque sensors over cadence sensors because there is zero delay and no runoff when pedaling. Torque sensors are so smooth and make you feel like you have superhuman powers because it feels the pressure that you put into the pedals. Cadence sensors sense the number of revolutions that you pedal and are notorious for having a delay when pedaling and worst will continue to engage the motor after you stop pedaling.

Final Thoughts on the VelotricT1I really enjoy the VelotricT1 because I get to exercise when I ride the bike. Jimmy’s wife always jokes that we aren’t getting exercise reviewing personal electric vehicles. However, the VelotricT1 has no throttle so you have no other option but to pedal to get the bike moving. The sleek design combined with all the tech, make theT1 an excellent choice for those looking for a beautiful ebike that is smart. The security features give you peace of mind when riding your bike downtown or locking it up for errands. If you are on the fence about getting an ebike because you still want cardio, theT1 allows you to ride it like a traditional bike and smoothly kicks on the pedal assists when you get to challenging hilly terrain. Overall, the VelotricT1 has become my favorite Class 1 road ebike that we have tested and reviewed on the channel because of its high-tech brains, overall ride quality, and beautiful design.
