If there is a word that properly describes Rayvolt’s wide lineup of e-bikes, it would be swagger. Its design concept seems to invoke the legendary era of early-1900s Indian motorcycles, the 1969 Café Racer and 1970 Beach Cruiser.

In contrast to the many highly utilitarian-looking e-bikes on the scene, Rayvolt’s e-bikes are a virtual feast for the eyes. Not only are these e-bikes pleasing to look at, they are designed around what Rayvolt calls EVIA: an “intelligent virtual assistant” that connects wirelessly to the bike control system and facilitates access to the motor and battery settings, the regenerative braking system, embedded GPS, mapping features, and diagnostics support for motor and battery.

The EIVA system control comes in two forms, as a free phone app and as a add-on computer. Both have the exact same functionality, albeit the computer has a dedicated mount and wires directly into the bike.

The EIVA on both the app and the computer functions like this:

  • Bluetooth engaged
  • Allows adjustment of the bike’s settings
  • Speed
  • Acceleration
  • Pedal Assist Settings
  • Throttle Settings

The EIVA system also comes with preset profiles which allow you to turn off and on the bike’s limiter (street legal (15 mph max) vs off-road (33 mph max). It can also let you know about any errors the bike might be having, such as a brake or throttle fault due to bad connections.

RayVolt Cruzer

The original Rayvolt Premium E Bike, the Cruzer, is influenced by the early 1900's motorcycle, combined with the counter rock culture of 1960's Cafe Racer, and a twist of California Beach Cruzer. Add EIVA Smart Technology and you have a bike that truly stands apart from any other. 

The Rayvolt Cruzer is unlike any other bike in its category. This bike comes fully equipped with a Power Hub motor that gives you better torque, acceleration, quicker response, and less noise and vibration. The best part about the Power Hub is that it has the juice to take you from Intelligent Pedal Assist mode to Full Throttle mode which increases the power from 250W to 1000W, and gives you top speeds of 30+ mph! When in the Intelligent Pedal Assist mode, you can cruise at a comfortable speeds with the option for 6 different levels of pedal assist. To top it off, this bike comes with a Dual Battery offering a ton of power for fast and efficient charging.

The RayVolt Cruzer offers six levels of pedal assist, ranging from no assist to full power. In auto mode, the bike adjusts its assistance to the terrain and conditions of the ride. The bike also has a built-in GPS system which gives the rider access to routes, maps, and travel guides.

The Rayvolt Cruzer uses a rear wheel hub motor. This innovative hub has a brushless, 3-phase, dc motor made from 48 copper coils and magnets that are placed on the perimeter of the motor for the best possible torque.

The built-in controller receives heat and position data from the coils and computes where to put the next load within one millisecond. This accuracy produces a pure sine wave current, offering unmatched ride comfort which translates into better acceleration, better responsiveness, more torque, less noise, and less vibration.

The performance and life expectancy of any electric vehicle is directly linked to the type of cell used. The capacity of the battery pack also depends on the number of cells used.

Rayvolt uses 13 cells in series to reach a nominal voltage of 48V. At peak voltage, a full charge of 54.6V gives a lot of power. They use a minimum of 4 cells in parallel (52 cells in total) or 8 cells in parallel (104 Cells in total).

This gives an unmatched capacity of 550Wh (watt hours) and 1100Wh where most of the industry uses 300 to 360Wh. Using a state-of-the-art battery management system in the packs, each cell is connected to it before delivering the charge. This high-tech design balances the charge between each individual cell and can cut the connection in case of a short circuit. This ensures best possible performance while making the battery safer.

Intelligent Regenerative Brake System

The electronic braking system sends a signal to the motor controller and provokes a reverse effect in the motor. This converts torque into resistance using the wheel inertia to generate electricity and recharge the batteries. It acts like an ultra powerful dynamo.

The intelligent RBS is linked to the built-in gyroscope, allowing the bike to detect the cycling environment. It then provides the necessary amount of regenerative brake according to the angle of the hill. iRBS paired with the cloud-based iTS allows you to remotely lock your rear wheel.

Intelligent Pedal Assist System (IPAS)

The Eiva® is Rayvolt's developed software to control, customize, and monitor your Rayvolt bike. An Eiva® computer can be purchased and secured mounted to the handlebars, ready to go whenever you are. The software can also be downloaded for use on an existing Android or iPhone.

Display 360º monitors speed, battery state, MPH/KM Run & essential bike specs. Bluetooth connection allows you to monitor the connection between the bike and Eiva®.

RayVolt Cruzer Review at Pocket-Lint

Chris Hall from Pocket-Lint just reviewed the Cruzer, and he is super stoked. He says this over-sized, low-slung electric bike is dripping in retro charm, from its long wheel base to the leather trim and accessories. It's the sort of bike that sunny days where made for.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Hi, is this a V2 or V3 version of the bike?

    Currently any Cruzer you order now (Jan. 2020) would be the V3 version.

    The biggest visible change is the front forks of the bike are now curved to improve handling.

    Otherwise there are minor changes such as the ignition key changing to be more secure.

  • Is it possible to paint the bike WW2 Army green or turquoise and white

    The Cruzer comes in 4 distinct colorways. We do not offer any other options, but you could certainly get the bike painted after-market.
