    • Carrera Vulcan Electric Mountain Bike - 16", 18", 20", 22" Frames is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 43.
      Rated 4 out of 5 by from New lease of life I bought the electric version as I am 60 and haven’t ridden a bike since my teens. I have now used it for a week riding to work 4 miles away, I must say that it has given me a new lease of life, with a good range of assistance levels to choose from it is just enough to allow someone as unfit as myself to cycle to work, but still feel my leg muscles being worked. When the battery goes flat it is very noticeable, but after only one week I can already feel myself getting fitter. I have had no problems with it as yet

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Carrera Vulcan, has very Good Hydraulic Disc Brakes The Pedal assistance on Eco mode is 25% and not really noticeable, the Tour mode is 50% assistance and is Good! The Climb mode is 75% assistance and is very good to take you up hills! The Turbo mode is very Good but flattens the battery too quickly so I don't use it, I mainly use the Tour mode as it's adequate, and it works well up to 16MPH. The front suspension is good with the Lock out forks and 120mm.of travel.

      Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke after 1 ride Bike wasn't put together correctly by the bike staff so I had a nice walk home pushing a £1250 bike luckily I could get the train for 5 miles of the 13 mile journey And the next day I was offered a new bike and this one hasn't broken as of yet. Wasn't happy with being offered £30 voucher

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Specified and at a Very Good Price I already had a non electric version of this bike, which I have been very impressed with, but I was finding that the hills around here were getting a bit to much for me (I am over 70 years old), so when I found that they did an electric version, I bought one. It arrived next day and was easy to put together. It seems to be well built and, as with the non electric version, the specification is very good. The only criticism I have are the pedals, which are not of very good quality, but they were easily replaced with bettor ones sourced locally. It rides very nicely indeed, with the torque sensitive electric power coming in progressively (its like riding with the wind behind you!) and making my local rides a joy again.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Took the leap to get an e-bike This bike has been a Godsend for me, really glad I bought it. I’ve commuted to work (17 miles) on a conventional bike for a few years but there are some horrendous hills on the route and I’m getting too old to be exerting my heart, lungs and (already dodgy) knees to such an extent. With the e-Vulcan I still get a decent enough amount of exercise but I’m not gasping for breath on the hills, and my knee pain is considerably better. A few things to note: When you first get the bike you need to fully discharge, and then fully charge, the battery TWICE to get the most from subsequent charges. After that you can charge whenever you like. This is what the guy in Halfords told me so that’s what I did. I’m getting slightly more than the claimed 40 miles from a full battery, but I’m only using the two lowest settings, and I use it without any assistance at all for about a quarter of the route. If you’re going to use the higher assistance settings fairly frequently you’re therefore probably going to get a bit less than 40 miles from a full battery. I haven’t encountered any of the problems with the battery cutting out as reported in some of the other reviews. To deter theft the battery and display can be removed from the bike when you park it. The display is nice and bright. There are different modes such as “battery % remaining”, “trip miles” etc. I’ve found switching between the modes and assistance settings to be very easy, even while wearing thick winter gloves. I've noticed the "battery %" feature is quite erratic. On one ride it jumped from 22% to 10% within about half a mile. Another time it stayed on 6% for around two miles before finally dropping! It's probably best to use it as a rough guide only. The bike is quite heavy. I also have a conventional Carrera Subway, which is easy to lift. This one is noticeably heavier. It also feels very sturdy, which isn’t a bad thing. The manual isn’t very good. The one I got was just for a general Carrera (non-electric) bike so didn’t cover any of the electrical aspects. I spent a good ten minutes trying to remove the battery before giving up and calling into Halfords to find out how to do it. It turns out to be embarrassingly easy but I think it should be covered in the manual. I got this through a cycle2work scheme. All the staff at Halfords were beyond helpful throughout; answering all of my stupid questions and putting up with my mechanical ineptitude. That’s all I have to report I think. If you want to get back into biking or are thinking about using a bike to commute to work I can recommend this bike. It’s definitely working for me.

      Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent so far I had my eye on this bike for several months but I couldn't justify spending full asking price. However, I noticed (on Christmas day!) that it had been reduced online, and after finding a discount code for a further 10% off I couldn't resist! Staff at the Chester Sealand Road store we're very helpful as always when I picked it up. I've only used the bike once so far, but that was a fairly longish 30km round trip and it performed faultlessly. It really is like someone is giving you a push exactly when you need it! I managed to ascend a few very steep hills which would have previously beaten me. Only downside for me is the saddle, which is a tad uncomfortable.

      Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good budget-priced introductory MTB! (Part 2) I bought my Vulcan from Halfords in March 2017 and this proved to cut out on its initial 3 rides. Halfords exchanged the bike at my request without hesitation at the beginning of April. To date I have now covered 944 miles on 60% country lanes (20% gradients) and 40% off- road national trust medium trails.Since last April my Vulcan has been used weekly but not in rain. The off-road rides has included muddy conditions and also gradients up to 20% which the Vulcan dealt with effortlessly. The lithium battery still shows its normal maximum charge at 99%. This is always removed from the bike for recharging and kept indoors in safe storage (it won't like storage in a cold garage or shed especially over winter). Cut outs have still occurred on my replacement Vulcan with an overall average to date (April - Dec 2017) of 1 in 7 rides. But pressing the battery button then the display button soon has power restored. Seasonal weather temperature changes appear to have little effect. Bumpy roads and trails do appear to influence cut outs. However, generally speaking the Vulcan handles itself well and its off-road trail riding ability is surprisingly good. Most of my rides are conducted in Eco (25% assistance) or sometimes Tour mode ( 50%) for the steeper bits. Climb mode (75%) is impressive with Sport mode (100%) exceptional up to 15.5 miles per hour. It should be remembered that this is a budget priced electric MTB and should be respected and handled accordingly to get decent durability from it. Generally speaking the Vulcan is a pleasure to ride and, faults aside, I am well satisfied with its performance so far. Would I buy another Vulcan E? ...Yes I would.
